I am a plumber, installing new boilers and power vented WH, and so on. I bought one of HF Chicago Tools cordless, yup cheap it was, could not hold a charge, could not drill a 4″ hole through plywood, 2×6 rim joist to save it’s life. I bought the Hercules and it does the work that I ask of it, every day it gets used, driving 3″ Sammy lags, hole saws, you name it.

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.
Why on earth would I buy this instead for more money?
