This guy does a very thorough review, teardown, and benchmarks on the drill. In short, the specs are lies, the build quality is poor, and the warranty is 90 days. DeWalt is in a completely different ballpark.

In fact, not at all cheaper. Devalt can be bought at discounts cheaper. Plus with brushless motor, which has a greater torque. You can also get Devolt with two batteries. I can not say that Hercules is a bad drill. I bought this and used it for professional work more 3 months. Even accidentally fell from a height and the drill works fine. But will live 3 years? If there is an extra $ 100 you can try. What about Devolt? This is a proven and well-established reliable brand.

I have found the Dewalt for $100 walking in to Lowes and have 2 of them now.

Not long ago I read something about a Harbor Freight lawsuit regarding that advertising practice “Compare At…” How I think they get away with it is that the “compare” reference is to a similar item (ie cement mixer without reference to quality). I actually looked at one of those there and it didn’t look like it would handle mixing pancakes! Wouldn’t buy it. But yes a similar- well made mixer- would sell for their “compare” price. I have bought certain “throw away” tools there but that’s all I expect. 90 day warranty- that’s a joke!

Here’s my issue with this. Harbor Freight is new to the scene with drills that can compare with the big boys and they choose to compare their newest offering to a 5 year old DeWalt model. The Hercules and Bauer brands they offer haven’t earned a reputation of their own by enduring the test of time to prove they belong in the same discussion as brands like DeWalt who have but they want to claim they “beat” DeWalt right off the shelf. For all we know they could have mass failures in a year or 2. The 90 day warranty… Read more »
