My opinion no, im guessing thats HF. I've bought many products from them only to go later and buy a quality (brand name) product later. If it was like a screwdriver or wrench/socket yes i may but electrical tools no. I was looking at the cheap drills cuz i needed one and ended up buying a corded dewalt for like $120 totally worth it its got so much torque i almost sprained my wrist. But it is your money just know you may end up buying two more down the road when you could have bought one quality one. (Not bashing China just my opinion)

I actually bought their Earthquake 1/2 impact for the lift install.
Well, it's still plugs along with no signs of slowing down.
Paid $75 on sale

Yes ... Sorry HF

You will end up using it again if not on the jeep then around the house.

Guessin ya bought it?

Remember some of the big box improvement stores will offer loaner or rental tools with deposits. If it is just 1 job, why buy at all?

Funny thing, Their earthquake impact is the exact same as the craftsman one that costs over $200. Mine works great.

That is a good point and it did pass my mind.
Okay so maybe more than 1 job

When it eventually burns up, go get you a 1/2" hammer drill. Not over the top concrete drill, just a base hammer drill from a "reputable" company. Dewalt makes their own stuff, as do most bigger names.

As far as where to get or which off brand stuff to go with, as mentioned it is literally the same product, from the same line, in the same factory. I can give plenty of examples, but it is actually prevelant in just about every industry now, so everyone can see it.

Hammer drills are somewhere between an impact and a drill. Perfect for HD drilling.

And remember, slow speed, low heat (by cutting fluid, NOT WD40!) and steady pressure, but not all your weight. Just steady pressure. The stringy q's that come off are a sign you are doing it right.

Hey thanks for the advice. I was looking at their hammer drills as well. Googled what a hammer drill was lol.
Still wasn't really sure so I bought the regular drill.

Hammer drills are really for masonry and concrete, but work well on thick metal too. The one you got should have a big enough motor it won't have a problem, just be cautious not to burn the bit right up. You should get years of occasional or light use from it.

Glad to help where I can.
