I have a big ass black and decker drill I'm not using anymore. This thing will twist your arm off. Really, I always liked to tie it to a tree with a chain in case it caught. See pictures for details. Asking $120 obo, cash only, must pick up.

Then again there is something to be said for not overstating.

That's funny.

I had a old Sioux drill about that size. Maybe bigger. 1/2hp or something. 3/4" chuck. I was afraid to use for anything other than a mixer.

These drills are why apprentices have always been so important in the trades.  Assign one apprentice to each handle and, if it gets away from them, at least they're young and recover quickly (insert smiley face).

Bill, you need to put a "spew alert" note on posts like this!  There I was, sipping my morning coffee, all innocent like, when I read this.
Now there's coffee in my keyboard.

My old Thor cost me $10 at a yard sale, but then, it didn't come with the post hole auger.
