There's a shelf in my apartment that I've been meaning to hang for months. The only problem? My drill is busted. It was the cheapest one the hardware store around the street from me, and it crapped out on me pretty fast. But Hitachi's 18-volt Brushless Hammer Drill will get the job done.
Part of the brand's series of brushless lithium-ion cordless gear, it boasts three times the battery life of standard tools. If you've ever had the frustrating experience of starting on a project, only to have to suspend it because your tools run out of juice, you'll like this product. The brushless motor provides for more run time, packs a ton of power (so it can handle all kinds of jobs) and includes an LED light, for added convenience.
In the event you bought a lemon, it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you won't be out the $US300 you spent. Now you won't have any excuses to keep procrastinating on those household jobs on your list. [Tool Guyd]
