I actually just got a Hitatchi cordless.. Goes through forged steel and nickel-tungsten easy.. The highest torque rating I could find for a cordless other than one model by a special company that looked like it was made for safe cracking..

Going to use it for repairing glasses

What model?

They're generally heavy and cheaply made.

I've never looked in to dewalt which is the only other I'd buy unless I was on a small budget then I'd just get one of the 4xxinlb drills from somewhere.

I use it for auto stuff mostly but did some brazilian walnut framing for furniture with the hammer once.

I did some case hardened steel and lock-lug tests with both using tungsten bits and impact sockets. I also drill locks.

It's not the drill that cuts the metal, it's the appropriate bit and the correct speed.

The DV18 isn't bad but it's an older design and the batteries are heavy and low tech. They're pretty hardy but the clam shell casing is weak around the switch area.
I've sold quite a few of them and they're not bad, but I wouldn't sell one to anyone who requires would give their tools a hard time.

Those two are still the most powerful in the current lineup from Hitatchi. They have a lot of 4xxinlb driver drills that are pretty affordable too. Those will do pretty much anything. I only get these because I do hardened steel and rusty auto stuff.

I agree on the casing but Milwaukee are the only ones who actually have quality casings that I've seen, and I don't buy those because price and power.

Milwaukee is just expensive Ryobi. Really don't bother. Crappy product and you're right, they are too much money.

For me at the minute, the new Dewalt brushless 18v combis are brilliant. I deal with electricians who have no mechanical sympathy at all.
5" holesaw in a cordless? "Yeah let's go for it...." Is the usual level of understanding. I've not had one back yet. They're light and powerful and the impact drivers are great.

One of the combi kits isn't cheap but the power and performance is amazing considering how small and light they are.

I don't have to drill shit. I just furrow my brow, glare at the wood menacingly, and the hole just opens up all on it's own.

Pro contractors I know use dewalt and pasload stuff for portable power tools. I really just went looking for the most powerful with just slight knowledge of durability when I got the hitatchi stuff.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with it. It's perfectly good stuff, I've been using one alongside my Dewalt for the loft extension.
