    If you buy that one you will still need to buy an adapter if you wish to use annular cutters.

    Cant help you with the magdrill, but I bought a Honda whipper snipper, pole saw, hedge trimmer from that company.

    To be honest if I had seen it in person, I wouldn't have bought it.

    The motor looks genuine Honda, but ever thing else is cheap, the plastic is flimsy and very soft, you cant tighten throttle etc as the plastic just stretches.
    I have replaced the throttle assembly with one from a Sthil , the Chain Cover will need to be replaced soon, also the handle.

    I have a genuine Honda W/S that is 10 or 15 years old, it is like comparing chalk to cheese.
    After years using Sthil, Husky, Honda as a horticulturalist, I am proberly spoilt, this one will do me around the house till I retire.

    Got the drill today. Not happy. First issue I noticed was the gear is misaligned with the rack. At least 3mm to left of rack. Need more time to look at this but rack may be installed crooked. It also has been drilled and tapped for mounting I presume and a lot of metal has been removed from some of the teeth. With the gear offset there is not a lot of metal left to engage the gear. Next issue was with the up and down travel. Lowering the drill results in a sudden drop of at least 4mm about three quarters of way through down travel. Not sure yet what the problem is there. Have not even powered it up. Pretty sure this will be returned. Will contact seller to see what he has to say. Overall I'd say it is poor quality.
