Customer Reviews and Scores

Rated at 4.2 out of 5 at the Amazon store by as many as 218 verified customers, the LDX172C which is available for an amazingly revised price of $29 only seems to be a good catch.  Not all machines enjoy such popularity!

While going through the customer reviews, we have come across some negative aspects about the product. A few of the customers seem to have been having trouble with the clutch. The clutch seems to fail after the first use when it really has to torque down a screw, locked right up. Also, the battery life is too short for a lithium. Whatsoever, this cordless drill has been eulogized and recommended as a great piece of work, nevertheless, as it proffers more than what can be expected.

Reviewing the drill and going through the customer feedback, we can conclude that the LDX172C from Black and Decker is a great cordless driller. This model is good for those who are deep into drilling work. The final verdict about this machine is nothing less than a total go for!
