We are talking about a good drill for the homeowner. A 12-volt drill you can put in the kitchen drawer and use to put up hooks, installbaby gates, change light fixtures, do little drywall repairs, straighten a saggy gutter...set up furniture, build new dog house or a tree house, finish a project for your kid....we are talking about a solid home management tool.
Many good drills nowdays come with an LED that shines at the front of the drill. Some drill models also come with a battery indicator light, a belt hook, and onboard bit storage.
