- Can't think of any, really
- The first one failed after 20 mins of hammer operation.
It's replacement survived this, but it was as hard to switch from hammer to rotary to hammer plus rotary as the original. It has now locked itself into the hammer position permanently. You can still switch the rotary on and off, but that's all. I am about to return it for a refund now.
The box it comes in has foam removable dividers that remove themselves whenever you remove the drill from the box and spread all the bits all over the floor/ into the mud/foliage/whatever.
The previous De Walt I had was brilliant and lasted 7 years of fairly rough treatment, and the box is a tough as old boots and I still keep all the bits in it. This is a wimp in comparison and it is obvious that the marketeers have been hard at work to cheat us all. I'd have done better getting the old one repaired, even if it cost as much.
