Ive had my 19.2 volt stuff for a few years now, gone through 1 battery so far, and one is weak. I love my Impact, It has taken anything I have tried to take off so far.

Can't comment on the impact but I have the drill. With a fresh battery I can stop it with my hand, I don't think I've ever been able to drill a hole with it on high because it just stops. When I installed a gooseneck hitch on my truck (8 holes in frame, 10 holes in bed) it took three nights because the drill would get through half a hole, blow a puff of smoke, and shut off. Hour or so later it would work again. Battery couldn't make it through two about 1/2" holes. I was using new and like new bits.

I used it once with an adapter to do the lug nuts on my truck and it wouldn't even back off half the nuts after they broke loose just because of the grime on the threads.

First off if your drill lets out a puff of smoke don't expect it to ever work well just by letting it cool down. Second taking lugs off with a drill is not its intended purpose and probably why your drill is junk. Third you're an idiot

Not a puff of electrical smoke (yes I realize that's how I worded it), just got really hot. I wasn't breaking lug nuts loose, just backing them off. I didn't feel like using a wrench on 32 lugnuts with long studs. That should be pretty easy for a drill to handle, I use drills all the time mixing mud, concrete, and mortar mix, that's a lot harder on them.

There is no reason it shouldn't be able to handle drilling some holes, even just a couple would be nice before it overheated or the battery dies.

Even just for around the house use I would not recommend it, although that's what I'm stuck with for now.
