    This is not a review by any means, simply a first impression. I normally don’t put much stock in first impressions and this one won’t be helpful.

    Here it is without further adieu.

    My first impression as I took out of the L-boxx was:

    Captain Kirk should be pointing this thing at a Klingon.

    The shape, design, and coloration reminded me of nothing other than a 1960’s SciFi prop.

    When I get to use this thing a little more I will actually post a useful review.

    I know. First words I ever spoke into my flip phone was “beam me up Scotty”. Whoever it was I called didn’t get it.

    One of the things I keep looking at. Looks like one heck of a kit.

    I’d like to know the differences between it and HDS182?

    @jdw1865 are you still able to edit the title of the thread? If so, could you add the tool # to it? HDH181XBL

    It will help keep the thread on course a little more as the pages go on I imagine 🙂

    Looking forward to hearing how you use this sci-fi tool 🙂

    The HDS182 is “compact” tough and has 442 in lbs torque. The HDH181XBL is “BRUTE” tough and has 752 in lbs….

    The HDH looks like it’s got more metal in it and the all metal gear box and it has the handle attachment.

    No he can’t change the title, You should know that. He could add it to the first post if he wants to so as not to bother Jim

    remember it’s “inch” lbs

    But still not bad at 60ft-lbs

    I have this drill. Other than having a 3 speed gear box and a touch too “beefy”, it has been the best drill I have ever owned.

    After using it for a while now I really don’t notice the need for the 3 speeds. I would use it if it had that feature though.

    The beef however has gotten in the way once or twice. Definitely not enough to throw it away though.

    Great, great, great drill.

    My millwalkee is 600 and some can’t remember the exact number and sometimes if you are over reaching one handed and when it grabs it surprises you sometimes
