Dewalt 985 Top of the range Cordless Drill Kit

Did you know that the average Ry_bi drill has a working life expectancy of 7 hours! We are not making this up. This is insider information - When tool makers create a new drill design for the consumer market, they make the assumption that it will only get used occasionally so they figure you will be happy if you get 7 hours use out of it! Seriously. Doesn't sound like a good buy to me. 
The higher end drills are built very differently to the home range ones. They are designed to be used everyday (if needed) by tradies and DIY and have high capacity motors and much better build quality. So I highly recommend you spend a few hundred dollars more and get something that will last you years... not 7 hours. 

What drill do you recommend?

If you are looking for an excellent Drill to use with your Power Planters - we highly recommend the Dewalt 985 along with 4 A/h high capacity batteries. 
Plus this is an excellent cordless drill for general DIY and trade use. It is the same drill Brian uses in the Power Planter Videos.

Latest generation 18V XR Li-Ion XRP hammer drill driver
