      panasonic is what i used to use doing hang-on scaffold. came with attachments for normal drill bits also. used to get 40 min charge times, and 200 batton screws into hardwood before it would go flat. would tighten a 17mm bolt on the plank hangers over 60 times a job with no signs of it going flat. really really good drill and was the best out of milwauke,dewalt and hitachi drills that we used before we settled on the panasonic. trade tools would also repair it whenever we dropped the thing(quite often!) for $120.
      this was 3 years ago, and the drill was only 14 volts 3.0 amp hours. as far as i know they now sell the same drill for under $400. back then they were over $700! they are now selling a newer version of this drill with lithium-ion batteries.
      either way you really can't go wrong. the drills we had would only wear out the batteries every 2 years(worked very hard though!) with the drills them selves lasting forever.

          ^^ yeah he is definitley talking about Impact drivers not wrenches (rattle guns)

          The impact driver is probably the most used tool in my kit. Love buzzin' in 150mm bugles into hardwood - fuckin amazing

                      I know a coupla people who're really happy with their just-sub-$300 eBay DeWalts ... there's disscussion of there being more'n one power-rating though, NFI what's what myself (& some of these people are Ultimate Cheapskates ).
                      Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                        makita btw450, best tool i've bought.

                        jeff you could get a skin for ~$250 but the Li batteries are exxy, a good buy if you already have the Makita 3AH batteries though

                          Since ive been thinking about getting a new drill too, i had a look at the Hitachi 18v drills. Turns out i can get one from a local hardware store for $319 with 3 batteries and the charger, then i can buy one of the skins from a grey importer or the US and use that with the batteries.

                          Could probably get it all for $450... thoughts?

                              Checking this stores other catalogue, it turns out they are only 1.5AH batteries:


                              Not sure which hammer drill model it is, no listings in the cattledog.

                                Thats not the top end drill either - thats the DS18DL

                                The DV18 is the better drill - but only marginal price difference when buying skins

                                http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Hitachi-18v-D...item27b6627817


                                better chuck and also comes with the detachable side grip handle
