This drill was a nice beefy drill for hole sawing into wood. If you pick up a 6" hole saw you can make your corn hole boards really easily with this guy.
It is a good Hammer Drill for the price you're paying for it. That being said, you're not going to drill 1/2" holes into concrete all day with it. I was trying to do this, and saw the same symptoms as other buyers, where the grease started flying out of the bearing near the chuck, and then eventually the motor started smoking and blew out. Now it moves but only 10% as fast as when it came.
I borrowed a pricey Bosch RH328VC 1-1/8-Inch SDS Rotary Hammer to finish up my project, 5 mins to drill a 5/8' hole 6" deep in concrete with Bostitch takes 20 seconds with Bosch, same bit, just as a reference point.
Like everything, you get what you pay for, and the Bostitch delivers a very fair amount of functionality for what you pay for it, but if using it for big jobs it will kill your hands with vibration and eventually fail.
Not going to pursue warranty so can't speak to that.
If there is a slight downside, it's a little longer than some of the others without the two speed gearbox and possibly a bit heavier I suspect, but if you are needing to drill with a lot of power in a confined space (between rafters or such) then this is probably the wrong tool for that job anyway. I'm a happy camper with respect to this purchase.
