We give the Porter-Cable PCL180DRK-2 an 8.0 overall rating. The user reviews of this model scare us a little bit. Of 12 ratings on Amazon, 6 of them are only 1 star, which is not a good sign. The biggest problem seems to be bad Li-Ion batteries. Despite the negative reviews, the specs don’t look too bad for this tool. It is lightweight at just 3.7 pounds, but a bit underpowered with a torque of 374 in-lbs.
Due to the number of bad reviews, we cannot recommend the PCL180DRK-2.
