As a maintenance supervisor at a 200+ unit complex in Oregon, owning this combo is fantastic! Having a drill that is compact enough to fit into your back pocket (not all the way, but enough so it won't fall out) makes my job that much easier. It is just as strong, if not stronger, than my 18v Ryobi but almost half the size. There is a slight, but noticeable delay on getting to full speed from the time you pull the trigger in all the way. It isn't that big of a deal because I often start off screws and drilling slowly to make sure I'm doing it right, but I have had a few times where I noticed it.
The L-BOXX system makes it easy to have screws and other hardware for quick access in my maintenance golf cart. The L-BOXX that the drill comes in does have plenty of extra room even with the charger, battery and drill in there. However, I keep my charger in the shop and the drill is on me always, so I was left with an empty box with no organizing boxes in it. I am puzzled as to what to put in there because when you lock the two boxes together you have to detach them in order to open the bottom box. So whatever you put in there needs to be something you don't want to have access to often. I planned on being in and out of these boxes constantly so when I saw that I knew the bottom box would hardly ever get used.
Quality drill in a compact size.
Battery level display
LED light on the front that will turn on even if the drill is in the lock position
Quick charge time
Great, sturdy cases. Really, really fantastic. I turned the case upside-down a few times and everything stayed in it's place.
Multiple handle locations to carry both cases locked together or separate.
Can't access bottom case when two are locked together without detaching.
Slight, yet noticeable, delay to full-speed drilling.
