This is the best drill you can buy for the money. My last Black & Decker drill just now broke after 15 years. The switch broke, but the motor was just as strong as ever. To put it in perspective, I have 6 drills (counting 4 cordless), 2 of which are 1/2 inch capacity Black & Decker units purchased 15 years ago in Walmart. The other one is still working and that must be some kind of record. This newer drill does not have a hammer switch on top, but the only place I ever used that was to drill holes in concrete with masonry bits. If you do a lot of that, it probably is not the best choice.

This drill is very strong and delivers a lot of torque so it isn't what you need for light duty jobs. You need a strong arm and good grip as you would for any drill built to deliver maximum power (no adjustable slip clutch) and it can twist your arm if you don't time the release or reduction in power to coincide with the end of the drive/drill cycle. I drive a lot of torx (star) head T-20 and T-25 deck screws using a magnetic bit holder and drill holes with bits up to a foot long and use a lot of spade bits for holes up to 1-1/2 inches. If you don't back off in a timely manner, the screws will sink too deep. I don't pamper my tools and I much prefer a keyed chuck like this drill has for better holding power and durability. If you can't afford more than 1 drill you will spend extra time working the chuck key while swapping bits out.

It is a little noisier than some drills because of the straight cut gear reduction, but this also reduces amperage flow at low speeds and increases motor life. The redesigned gear reduction system is probably the main difference in this drill and my 2 older ones. Hopefully it will last as long as the one it replaced.

I had a cheap 3amp black and decker drill that has served me well over the years. Today I was trying to mix some drywall mud to texture the ceilings in a rental property of mine. The cordless was not an option, and my 3.0 amp almost did ok for a few minutes, but then smoked and died. I ran to the score and picked up this 7 amp model with the additional handle for extra control, and WOW what a difference. It mixed up the mud with ease and seemed to have power to spare. The one negative thing I did notice right away, it was very very loud. Overall I like B&D stuff. Most things I have purchased have lasted a long time and run great. I will never be a cool handy man with all DeWalt stuff, but I will have a few extra benjamins in my wallet.

I like the B&D drill. It's a bit heavy for me as I'm 72 yro. It's a good drill and I do like the B&D products. My last B&D drill lasted 30 yrs, I'd say I got my money's worth. I might try using it without the handle, that might lighten it up a bit. I love tools and love to build things. I still have my B&D skill saw, and that to is 30 yro and working fine.

The first time I came across this drill was at the local depot. I was thinking about getting a mid handle 1/2 drill, and to be honest did not even think to look at B&D. The majority of my power tools are Makita, Dewalt, Milwaukee, or Bosch. I tend to not stick with one brand since I prefer to get the best tool for the job at hand. I picked up the DR560 and was very surprised at how solid and well balanced it felt. This was much better quality then I have come to expect from B&D. Once I saw the price was less than half that of the other drills, I figured I would give it a shot. The price was low enough that if I can complete one task with it, it was worth the purchase. The first thing you need to know right off the bat is that this is not a hammer drill. All those folks trying to use it as such are a little confused. Yes it has a handle for stabilization but thats it. The handle was not meant to be used to apply additional weight or force. Also the RPM range is low for a professional; but for a DIY'er the range is perfectly acceptable. This drill will drive screws and bots into wood without a problem. It can drill holes in wood or metal. I would not use this for concrete or brick. I have a much heavier (and more expensive) 1/2 Dewalt hammer for that. The B&D DR560 will do the majority of what is needed for the average homeowner. Never thought I would say it, B&D really made a decent low cost drill. The DR560 is a nice addition to any tool box.

Because I've almost broken mine several times using this. The Drill itself is not bad. It's the design of it that's the problem. I purchase this drill to make 5/8 holes in steel sheets. Not a deadly difficult tasks and things go well when the drill operates smooth. The flaw with the drill is the side handle. As the one featured in this picture it does not screw directly into the body of the unit. It clamps on. This might be nice if it worked but the clamp is plastic, and the area it gets clamped into is plastic as well. The end result is that you have a drill that slips and slides around in place. No big deal if you don't need the handle but if your breaking into metal it's necessary in case you get a pinch.With this the handle would always slip out of place because of the power the drill has it would get caught in a grove on the metal your drilling and spin then Spin on you. I hope you let go in time because if you don't say good bye to your hand. Horrible design flaw but the drill works well when the clamp stays in place.

1 Star from me because it happened to frequently. Very dangerous.
