Top Customer Reviews
Skil is an old and respected name in tools (particularly Skil circular saws). Skil is now owned by Bosch and the Skil 6445-01 7A Hammer Drill appears to be very good quality for the price.
There is one mistake in the listed Amazon specs for this tool: there is no bubble level. However, the drill does come with a very nice canvas tool bag which is not mentioned by Amazon.
I prefer corded drills now since the battery pack ones seem to need a new battery every 3 years the cost of these add up. A drill is a lifetime purchase so I would recommend a hammer drill as a general use drill as well.
This drill motor is replacing a Craftsman hammer/drill motor I purchased back in the 1970's.
I built a block tool shed, used the old Craftsman to drill some interior holes. The new Skill used on the same block drilled the same holes like going through butter. Both drill motors used the same carbide tip bit. Somehow, Skil has come up with a fantastic beat mechanism that really does the job when drilling into masonry. I was surprised a $59.00 hammer drill would work so efficiently. Good for you Skil, your living up to your old reputation via products like this.
There is a con though and that is the motor runs at a high(er) decibel rate ie: noisy and sounds a bit cheap. I wear hearing protection when I use the tool.
In addition, the description above states a bubble level on the tool. No bubble level. There was a nice heavy fabric bag included to put the drill motor into and some outside pockets for drill bits and (?)
I can't project how long this tool will last but from my point of view, it is a great product at a bargain basement price. ($59.00 Amazon, 5/11)
