I own no drills with tails. I just sold my 20 year old Milwaukee 14.4V with a Jacobs chuck, I got a second set of two batteries from Milwaukee 12 years ago when there was a recal on the batteries and these were still going strong.

Last year, (I think), I bought a Master Mechanic 12V 1/2” drill and impact driver. Both are vary powerful. Not like the old Milwaukee, but strong enough for most things.

In November my wife got me an 18V Li 1/2” drive drill that is nearly as strong as my ex boss’s Crapsman 1/2” drive corded heavy duty drill.

I have used it in a 12” deep solid concrete drilling marathon. I made 10 holes before changing batteries, and by the time I wore out the next battery, the one on the charger had been fully charged.

Sorry, I gave up the drills with cords many years ago.
