Pretty good, considering it includes 2Amp battery and a charger.

50% off normal price. Battery alone would go for ~$30.

they are dumping these as the new XTR is out. this is still a pretty good deal on this drill....no where near the performance of the new one though looking at the reviews.

Are they? I thought I had read this line would remain as their entry level with the XTR being more prosumer based. It works out for me because I've been watching for the Impact Driver to drop in price to switch from an aging set of Porter Cable 18v NiCad fully over to this 24v Max Brushless line.

I've got this drill, and I've been extremely impressed with it. I also bought the 24v Weed Eater/Blower combo that came with a charger and 4.0AmpHr battery. I'm a fan of the performance/value ratio for what I've seen and used it for. This drill absolutely tears through wood. Of course I try to keep it in perspective given the tools I'm coming from and the fact that they're 12-13 years old. So make of that what you will.

This review I read of this drill before I bought it for my son for an electricians apprenticeship actually put this at number 2 in regards to efficiency and said overall it was a good value. Sorry for the formatting as I'm on mobile as I'd normally embed the link, but this was what convinced me to give this a go.

From what I have heard, the warranty is fairly easy to deal with at lowe's. Please share your experience though. I am pretty invested into the 24v line now and love every one. Granted I got all of them on sale and relatively cheap (6 tools for 112), I still think this line is my best value as a homeowner.

Any ways to get battery for cheap? I see that Lowes jacked up the price on them.

You just gotta follow the deals. I got a 2ah and 4ah in the 6 tool kit, then did the 2ah 4ah kit with free tool for 129 and got the ratchet. So far ive spent ~300 for 8 tools and 4 batteries (the 6 tool for 112 deal was killer).

I got this with the impact driver part of a kit for $129 and have had no problems so far. Enough power for any home owner DIYer.

I have this and the hammer drill version. The hammer drill is more useful and seems to be more powerful.

I use these drills to power through thick steel with ease. The attached picture is drilling 1/2" holes in 1/2" plate. Also used that day to drill through 1" thick steel.

The Impact Driver and Impact wrench are not of same quality as the Rigid line. I have been through 2 each on warranty the past three years and I am not a "prosumer", just a homeowner that values tools that work when they need to work. I have had these since 2016, and if I had to do it again I might go Rigid. But now I have all Kobalt, and now I hear rumors that Lowe's is going away from Kobalt and refusing warranty in store without receipt and will start going with DeWalt only. All rumors I suppose but I can verify that stores since January won't accept Kobalt without receipt.

This is my least favorite tool out of the 6-piece kit, surprised the average review is so high. This thing is slow/weak with extreme trigger lag and the chuck is wobbly, making it very difficult to screw anything in without slipping off. Perhaps I got a dud (though the trigger lag exists with the other tools to varying degrees) so I'm planning to exercise warranty on it.

I bought this drill a couple of months ago with the impact combo set, and I love it. I was moving from a 4-year-old Ryobi 18v drill that had served me well, but this thing is in a different ballpark. My primary project recently has been building and hanging cabinets, and while that's not an extremely taxing task, I was impressed the way it put the 3-inch screws into the wall.

Kobalt promises a 5 year warranty and a 1-year money-back satisfaction guarantee, so if you buy it and don't like it, go get your money back. Just make sure you keep your receipt (or store it on the Lowe's app).
