It was promised that the product can drill into concrete....However how hard I tried it does NOT drill into concrete...suitable for wooden work only....please make sure what your requirements are before buying this product...
If you are looking for good quality drill machine, then this model of Black & Decker is a good deal. Tool world is aware of quality of this brand. Coming to this specific model, this one’s 13mm size drill machine, so quite capable of covering wide range of applications.
Very often it’s available in lightening so do plan it in advance & keep checking. I got it for Rs 1530 during Diwali 2018 sale. Still at any point of time, whether on offer or not, it’s a good deal to grab for quality & features it provide vs price tag.

▶ If in budget range of up to 2k and looking for perfect drilling companion, this Black & Decker model will be a perfect fit.
▶ If you can increase budget by few hundreds, get it with kit. This way you get a good range with kit box, 8 drill bits, 15 screw driver bits, anchors & screws etc.
▶ If you can increase your budget further to 3k range or more, then you can get Bosch 550 watt drilling machine with or without kit, for further better performance.
Do remember, Black & Decker used to be a pioneer in tools business & still makes very good quality durable product.
Received the product. No damge. Amazon service was excellent. Product received exactly as seen in the image.
Product is Good. I am using it only for home use. Quality of the bits provided may not be that much high. I think this is a good product for all home use. If you go for Bosch, Dewaltz or any other high end brand you will have to spend few hundred bucks more.
Every item shown in the site page was provided. Packing was not at all stanadard.
People who are buying Black and Decker must first check whether the product name is "Black and Decker" or "Black + Decker". Please try to understand the difference.
bought it in lightening deal for 1.6K and I find it very good in use because of hammering and reverse features, plus the extended handle and depth meter is very useful. Already used on wall and wood. The packaging was a bit disappointing because the box inside the Amazon plastic cover was not seal packed and was actually opened before.
The drill is working fine ,the reverse movement is functioning ,have not tested the hammer action . Minus points -1. The packaging was HORRIBLE , In my opinion it is good to test the drill before sending to the customer , but at least take care of the packaging. 2. The 4 drills provided are of extremely low quality it takes quite a lot of effort Will post a review video soon
super performance.... i thought that it cant drill concrete bricks and pillers by reading some useless reviews. but it works very ease in concrete,not only bricks and wood. but you need to buy drill bit seperately. package contains drill bits, but those works on light usage like wood and some ordinary bricks. please go through it. looks are very good and performance is very fine. i didn't face any heating issue and sparks issue while using. light weight in usage and you can screw and unscrew easily with screw bits. thank you black and decker for superb machine in budget. i got it for 1799.
The machine is very good. It not only drills holes but can be use as a tiles cutter also. I should have given it a 5star but due to seller negligence while sending me the item he did not send be the scale with the machine, so I am giving it a 4 star.
I bought this drill recently, and used it for a couple of times. works well, but the only gripe that i have is the Variable speed mechanism. it does not have preset variable speed setting marked with 1-2-3 and so on. you have to control the speed by varying the position of the trigger. so maintaining a constand speed is next to impossible. the Trigger lock mechanism seems to lock only in one position, and that is at max speed.
This drill machine is good enough and it works well both with wood and wall. But the drill kits that comes with the machine are of low quality. We have to buy good quality drill kits. Otherwise, drill machine itself is good.
This Drilling machine is powerful. It has 2 way rotation which really helps to screw and unscrew as well as drill easily. It also support hammer action which helps drill through hard surfaces. I would highly recommend it. The only drawback is that it is a wired drill which sometimes makes it inconvienent to use as compared to the wired one.
It's working fine,powerful for near professional use,heat when used for long sessions,best for home use,free bits are of poor quality,have hammer drill,reverse drill all-in one,always on deal compared to other similar products.
