The only thing is that it's heavy. I thought Li-Ion drills were supposed to be light, but the 18-A is heavier than typical 18V NiCad or NiMH drills.
Well, it is slightly lighter than the previous model. The weight doesn't bother me as I am 'strong like bull'.

Yeah, we're all Hercules, but lighter tools are still better. That's why I'm looking into the Makita 18V Li-Ion tools. It seems they could handle 95% of the work, the big guns like the Hilti 18-A could be used for the extra 5% where a really strong drill is needed.

What gets me cranked up is when a guy applies for a job and says that he can do X, Y, and Z, when he's really only good at X.
Well, when I apply for jobs I list as much as possible just to show I've been around, but on my resume or application I will specify "some/minimal experience in residential wiring". If they want to know any more detail they'll ask. If it isn't a concern they'll ignore it all together anyway.

If I know it's commercial, I would put at the top that I'm experienced in bending 1/2''-1'' EMT and some experience with rigid threading and bending because I don't want to give the impression I'm better than I really am.

I worked with a guy that said he had 2 years experience and couldn't drive a single screw without difficulty and was fired his 2nd day on the job.
