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...
Great Product from Black & Decker, I love the drill. It's very sturdy and heavy too. Awesome power drill. Get yourself ready for a heavily weighted drill and power drilling. You can feel the rotational speed. The trigger can control the speed of drilling. So, its very good for screwing too.
**Very very bad packaging. I didn't expected it from Amazon Prime Fulfilled order. The package was partially damaged. Luckly drill was fine. I have attacted some of the photos, as for reference to my statement.
Quality product from Black & Decker unlike local cheap craps, worth every penny, motor is excellent , robust design and drills like a charm, I had drilled almost 200 holes at a go, no issues, no jamming, no heating, worked like charm, but be choosy with the quality of drill bits. Tips: for drilling plastics and pvc, use dowell bits of low dia like 1 mm first, then drill with higher dia bits like 6 mm etc, never ever use the masonary bits supplied with the pack, they are of cheap quality.hope this helps.
The best product I have purchased on Amazon platform Pros + Professional driller + Can use the longer time I.e more than 50 min. I used in construction my house. + Hammer option + Reverse drill. It means anti-clockwise. + Quality and a long chord +Easy bit fit +full plastic outer body.That's why harmful heat cannot reach our hand to a certain limit. The Best brand Cons. -No slow motion option.
For someone looking for limited attachment drill this is one of the best options available. Used it for drilling through walls, tiles, wood. Had no problem maneuvering. It is sturdy and comes with am extra attachment for holding it and putting pressure. Screw and unscrew option available. The only thing missing is the screw driver attachment that would have completed the set.
Please for safety purposes use gloves and safety goggles.
Overall a good quality handy product for household fix ups.
Bought it on Freedom sale for a discounted price. Packed with all features at this low price! Does its work well! I checked only on the wall. That was my purpose of purchase. Robust and ergonomically designed. Bits seem to be bent a little... So I observe some wobbling! Will update after testing it with a good quality bit. Hammer mode doesn't reveal any hammer action visibly or audibly. Bit suspicious! 🤔 Considering the low price, i can't expect much packing material from the seller. Only polythene is wrapped around the original carton. But no regret! Contents and carton are intact without any damage! 😃 I saw someone complaining about the depth gauge fitting. The side handle should be loosened first before inserting the depth gauge. The Bolt head goes and grips the gauge as you keep tightening the handle. Highly recommended! ✌
very good for home use, i am in love with this drill machine, i am searching around the house almost everyday for something to drill simply because i love this machine sooooo much...hahaha *update: i found that some reviewera here warned against using it for concrete wall drill, i guarantee you this, buy a separate masonry drill bit from stores, u will drill happily through concrete walls. Don't rely on the drill bits that came with the box
I have purchased this for Diy purpose, since labour cost for basic maintenance has skyrocketed in recent days . The drill has ample power to accomplish jobs. The switch is very responsive, speed increases as it is depressed, but it can be locked only at highest speed. The masonary bits provided can perforate plastered brick walls easily. But reverae mechanism switch is flimsy. It rattles and delicate to operate. The gears inside are not lubricated. I have applied AP3 grease but special high density grease is available in market which I didn't have. The motor has two ball-bearing but chuck shaft rides on a bush, so it might need lubrication more often. The brushes are small and predicted life is ~300 hours for professional works, but will have higher life for Diy purpose. Body is tough plastic and cord is Indian quality. The chuck is good and centers perfectly. This is excellent for Diy purpose but may not be suitable for professionals.
The drill machine is all good guys. Now you have to understand and be literate to make use of its feature.
In simple words, for wood and soft materials, push the black slide to drill icon and if it happens that you need to drill directly to columns, slide to hammer side. Always use the angle holder. It also comes with a scale so that we do not drill much further than required.
The only cons of this Drill machine is that it does not have extra small drill bit.
I have been using this tool machine for more than a month now and Almost use it use it on all surfaces.
Ultimately Black & Decker is a known brand across the world and is also making a remarkable presence in India so go for it!!!
I liked the immaculately new condition of the product & content as described. I was a tad disappointed with drill bits being dislodged from it assigned packaging rolling loosely in the pack. The packing itself was in cling-film rapping slapped with the recipient address. If one can overlook this...then go for it start building up a practical DIY Kit
