When it comes to tools...off brand always leaves you wishing you'd spent more for name brand quality. First time out of the box and a bit broke trying to tighten a screw... not real happy with this, but again, you get what you pay for

This is a handy little tool that I have already used for a couple small jobs around the house. Just be aware it is not super powerful so will not work well where you have a lot of resistance, for example if there is not already a drill hole.. Nice for basic stuff like furniture assembly where there are 87 screws to put in!

I have bought many refurbished items from Overstock and this was the first that definitely looked pre-owned. There was a gash in the plastic, which was very ragged and aged-looking and no instruction manual was included. That said, we looked to You Tube for some idea of how these drills work in general (Hitachi does not at this time have manuals on their web site), and my husband turned out to be very pleased with it. We should not drywall - don't have the joint compound thing down - but THIS aspect of the job was a pleasure, thanks to this tool. I would give it 5 stars if there had been a manual or it had looked brand new, as the usual refurbished stuff here DOES. Nevertheless, I would recommend it to anyone.

This was a refurbished product that you could tell was not new, but not at all bad ether. Worked well out of the box as I put it through a few tests to see how it performed. Drove long screws with no letup in power. Took a bit for me to get used to how it worked but performed well once I learned some basics. I was able to set screws quickly to any degree of depth, even exactly flush with the wood with ease. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

I use a large rechargable drill at home now, but it sometimes is a bit heavy. Now I can use this with ease to get the job done.

this item with new batteries was still very weak, and after using it a few times it died. had to throw it away after only a few uses.

It was worth what I paid for it. I really didn't expect anything else from it. The first time I used it was on a rusty screw and it wasn't powerful enough to turn it. I must use it on lighter jobs.

This is a replacement tool for one I had for years. Tons of Bts and easy to change out. Have not had to use it yet but it looks like it will handle my next small project.

It is still sitting in my tool kit. Did not have the cause to use it yet, but I am sure it will do the job. Do not have much comments to tell about it.

I use this to water wild plants I have growing on a flood plain and I am pumping out of a small stream.

I bought this for my fiance for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. He couldn't wait to tear it out of the box and use it. He said it is the perfect tool because it does everything. Great product!

this item works great for my soldering needs! heats up quick and works great! Only wish it came with a stand to put it in when your not using it.

I have been using this product for almost a year now and have found nothing wrong with it. It works just fine for what I bought it for, and that is putting the little white screws in on outlet covers. The batteries last a very long time, as long as you are not straining it. The battery department is vary easy to get to, no screws to have to take out. And it is geared just right for what I'm doing with it. It is a slow but powerful gear setting. It has a forward and reverse, and a locking function for screws that need a little more torque. The product arrived on time and in good shape, and well packaged.

The pump in review has surpassed all my expectations. I us it to pump water from a creek that is over 300 away and 80 feet below the property i water. There is plenty of pressure and sufficient water flow at these distances and elevations. The large gas tank gives it a long run time. The high discharge pressure shortens the watering time because of the distance the sprinkler is significantly improved, The only problem noted upon delivery was loose gas tank nuts and a pinched ignition wire that prevented the engine from starting. Once corrected, engine cranks up on first few pulls of the starter rope. This pump is a good economic alternative to the more expensive pumps, especially if it is to be used for irrigation purposes.
There's no question that the right power tool can help you complete the job more efficiently than traditional hand tools. The success you have with your power tools is dependent on purchasing the right tool and using it safely. For many do-it-yourself home improvement projects around the home, portable power tools, such as drills and sanders, are ideal because they can be easily stored when they're not in use. If you're outfitting a garage or workshop, you'll likely be considering stationary tools, such as table saws and drill presses, as well as more portable power tools.

Whether cordless, gas-powered or electric, power tools have revolutionized home building and repair. Imagine building an entire house with hand tools like saws, hammers and screwdrivers.

This list of safety facts offers tips on using power tools effectively without causing injury to yourself or others.
Cordless power tools have come a long way and command a large following in the home-improvement industry. Some of the most popular cordless tools include drills, circular saws, screwdrivers, impact wrenches, reciprocal saws, nail guns and power sanders.

Cordless power tools are also perfect for the homeowner who enjoys taking an active role in home improvement and maintenance.
A nail gun can be used for almost any project in which you would use a hammer and nail. For large projects, such as framing a house or an addition or installation of fencing, an air gun cuts the time dramatically and increases consistency and stability. These powerful tools can be powered by compressed air, gas or electricity.
A belt sander allows the operator to quickly sand the surface of a piece of wood with a minimum amount of physical effort. Because the belt sander is a power tool and the belt moves at such high speeds, it does not require as much pressure to strip off the top layer of the wood as it would if you were using a sheet of sandpaper. Belt sanders, like all power tools, are especially important for large home improvement projects, like building a deck or refinishing cabinets, because they can sand a lot of surface area very quickly.
Serious construction and home improvement projects require serious tools. When you're embarking on a large project, such as a home addition or major painting, regular power tools may not be up to the challenge. That's where using air tools can make things easier.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions that will help you decide if using air tools is the right move for your next home improvement project.
Even with today's plentiful assortment of power saws, many carpenters keep a hand saw around for special projects.

Hand tools require no electrical connections or batteries since you operate them manually, and they are a good back-up option when you're working in an area where electrical power is not available. Using a hand saw is simple, but it takes a little muscle and a bit of technique to cut wood efficiently.
If you like doing home-improvement projects but still want to have free time to enjoy the finished product, a power saw is an essential tool to speed up your projects. Whether you have a circular saw to cut planks for a new deck or a jig saw for fine woodworking, knowing how to use your saw safely is of utmost importance. Fortunately, running your power saw like a professional doesn't take much time.

A wet saw is a useful power tool for anyone who will be cutting tile. Wet saws achieve a clean cut without breaking the tile by using a diamond-encrusted blade that rotates the saw through a pan of water as it cuts. The water keeps the saw blade cool, which prevents tile breakage and helps protect the saw's motor. Some wet saws are also capable of cutting through dense metals and brick. For a single weekend project, renting a power tool such as a wet saw may be more economical than purchasing one, but if you'll be cutting tile more than a time or two, owning one of these handy power tools is worth the investment.
