This is a great drill machine if you know what you are buying. I could not tell that it is refurbished, it's just brand new in every aspect, not a scratch or sign of use. Plenty of power for anything I needed so far. This is not a screw driver, the RPM control starts at fast and goes to fastest. It can not be made to turn slow so be aware, this is not a slow start drill or screw driver. Very happy with it so far, this is my machine for heavy drilling jobs.
