hi,

firstly im new to this forum stuff but have just purchased my first house and unfortunatley have no idea of which power drill would best suit my needs. to be honest, as i am a woman, i personally need something light in weight & quite straight forward to use. I found a no name hammer drill which is also in my price range but could do with some advice etc.

thanks

lauren

It really depends on what you are doing with the drill. Right off the bat, you don't need a hammer drill. I would stick with a brand name as some of the no names are cheap and will not last. You can either go with a corded drill or cordless. I would go with a cordless drill because you can always buy a flash light or other items to expand on. If you are going to use the drill a couple times a year, go with a Black and Decker. If you plan on using the drill more often a Makita is a great drill.

I would stay away from a no name power tool and spend a couple extra dollars and get a good reliable cordless drill. Drywallman is right and it sounds like you don't need a hammer drill. There truely is a big difference from brand name to no name power tools. Its the balance, the motor, the way the batters handle the tool and especially how the energy is transferred from the tool to your work. Black and Decker are great power tools and are a little cheaper than the Makita. The Makita is a little lighter and is a great drill. Again it depends on what you are doing which would tell how much power you need. Here are two 14 Volts that would be great, but again if you don't need as much power go with the 9 Volts as they are more than enough for most applications.
