That's next on my list. Currently just use an Irwin angled bit which doesn't quite cut it. The bare 18v Makita angle drills ain't too bad price wise.

I have the 240 volt Makita angled drill and it is good, particularly for holes through timber for waste pipes, on the rare occasion it has to be done

Is it a keyed or keyless chuck?

Old fashioned keyed chuck.
Had it for a lot of years now, but still brand new condition as doesn’t get much use.
I know there used to be 2 models of Makita angle drill at that time - the better one had the handle up at the chuck, which makes it much easier to push the drill while it drills

Stubby impact driver with a flat bit or auger does me for a pipe or cable run through joists, stops with all that wrestling plus I don't put up timber framed buildings very often. ;)

I'd be lost without my angle drill . I use it loads .
It's Makita 240v I have but I've been eyeing up the Milwaukee beasts but reviews have been very mixed.

I have the Milwaukee M28 which is really good . Had it about 12 years, still going strong.

I also have a Milwaukee M18 hole hawg, the smaller one. Very good also, better than above with spade bits due to higher speed.

I also have the larger Makita 110v one which has a 2speed gear box. Can do 6inch holes no prob.

The flexvolt looks good.

Keyed chucks are better for the torque of these drills
