Only two complaints: 1.The key-less chuck is the most serious issue. It fails to live up to the tools otherwise quality standard. The chuck is rather cheaply made, allows drills to slip, (ruining the shank of expensive drill bits with a gouge or burr or worse, allowing the bit to fly out of the chuck when you release the trigger and self-braking effect of the tool stops the chuck rapidly. You also need to be careful when tightening the chuck with bare hands, (as most do in construction). The lightly knurled metal outer portion you grip will yield a nice "friction burn" if you grip it hard to tighten larger bits. The drill is very powerful. And you DO need to grip it hard to tighten down on larger bits to prevent the above issue. (I took this tool back and exchanged it for another, since I thought it might be a defective chuck. The second tool had the exact same issue). 2. This drill, and many others, also need the small rubberized pads on each side, (like on the impact driver drills), to prevent the tool from slipping on
angled surfaces like roofs, etc.
I'm giving this 4 stars only because of the chuck, (which is a very important part of the tool). Overall, a very good tool if the chuck issue was addressed.
