Craftsman C3 1/2" Drill/Driver

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

Craftsman is the leading brand when it comes to hand tools, and the Sears store brand continues its tradition of excellence when it comes to power tools. The Craftsman C3 Cordless 1/2" drill will not disappoint the home owner/ do it yourselfer. The Craftsman C3 1/2" Cordless drill/driver as they like to called it has all the power you need.

The C3 line features a set of hand tools that all use the same 19 volt rechargeable battery to power them all. It's great to get use out of the rechargeable batteries for more then just a single tool. I have found in the past that the battery would die long before the tool it was designed to power. Now with the C3 line I can get full use out of the batteries. And this drill has been used greatly by my house.

The drill has an RPM range of 0-1400 with twenty-four different torque settings. This many settings may seem like overkill, but with this much adjustablity, you can apply as much power, or reduced power as you need. So weather you are driving a 3 inch nail deep into a stud, or removing a Christmas toy from its packaging, this drill has the setting you need.

There are two speed settings, low and high. Built into the top of the drill is a bubble level to ensure you are driving the screw or drilling a hole that is level. There is a second bubble level on the side to help with those opposite angles.

The handle and weight distribution on this Craftsman makes for a comfortable tool. I found it did not tire my hands or arms out after extended use. The battery will last for most jobs, depending on the power needed.
The only issue I had was one of the C3 batteries would not work in the drill. It works in all my other C3 tools but fails to power this drill. I have yet to figure out if the issue is with the battery or the drill itself.

Overall you can't go wrong with this Craftsman C3 Cordless power drill. -Reviewed by ConchRaider
