Craftsman Evolv 17217 5.2 amp Corded 3/8&#34 Drill

I bought this drill for my boyfriend a year ago and he loves it.  The store was suprised to see someone wanting a corded drill because most of the people want cordless.  He hasn't had any problems using it and he loves trying out new projects with this drill.  He loved craftsman but didn't know anything about the evolv product of craftsman but the price was right and now I can't get him to put it down

Priced good for very light work.
Not strong enough to drill into a wooden fence post. Will do for around the house jobs. I guess I can't really complain it only cost 33.00. Way to go Sears!!!

Great deal

On sale and was just what I needed. We do not normally need a power drill, but there are those few occasions where one would come in handy. Not sure how much it is now, but thirty five was about fifteen less than the others.

Suits the need

I just needed a corded drill for those times when the battery operated drill does not have enough RPM's or torque. So I just needed an inexpensive drill that I didn't think would **** out on me the first time I used it. This seemed to fit that bill so I tried it. So far it still works.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Chuck is not the greatest...

Bought this to replace an aging drill which worked fine, but the chuck was no longer grabbing the bits very well. This new one is not much better.

Good Drill

This Craftsman drill was the perfect little cheap drill (cheap in a good way) For the $24 I paid it out performs many other brands of the similar speed and functions this drill has. Built sturdy and great for small fast jobs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

corded drill

I bought this for my husband--his drill from about 30 years ago was going--bought it in the nick of time--he loves it--loves that you do no need a chuck to put the drill bit in. We loved it so much I bought one for my son when he just bought his new house.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
