    Kin 'ell, it's got a bit of torque. Just tried it after charging the batteries and it twists my wrists on full power

    Yup, mines done everything I've ever asked of it. I haven't resorted to my 240v drill in years now. Not actually sure where it is either!

    Been using it plenty last few days drilling holes for rawl plugs for the missus in her new art studio. It's fantastic. Even let her have a go

    Does quit suddenly, But luckily it came with 2 batteries
