We had a bird at one point. I'd never get one again. Such a mess to clean up after.

It is not a remarkable car by any measure, but at the same time it hasn't been Nicked and isn't dying.

Battery life is pretty good for a non Lithium ion. I redid 30 feet of fencing before it started getting sluggish...and that was after using it for car work two days earlier.

It's ok for larger fasteners but doesn't have enough torque to break the torque on, say wheel bolts. Still need the breaker bar for that.

EDIT: got it at Home Depot on sale btw
Not bad. My Makita is rated at 170 ft-lbs and can just barely do E46 wheel bolts. Damaged threads or over torqued and no-go. The price difference between your setup and my setup, for two very similarly sized drills is crazy though.

Nope, it's Ryobi.
My dad has one of those. The Makita one is much better.
