Reviews

BT 45 Wood Boring Drill is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice For Homeowners/Professionals Needed a Tool for Drilling Holes For Our Post and Beam Home. Lots Of 3/4" and 1" Holes To Drill and Did Not have and Power to the Property Yet. Drilled about 50 Holes So Far and Very Please with the Machine. Also Purchased the Carrying Strap, and Both Stihl Drill Bits From My Dealer. Very Helpful and Knowledgeable about the Product. Our Dealer Also Had a Drill For Me to Try Right on Hand Before i Bought It. That Was a No Brainer Once i Saw the Capabilities Were.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the power you need to drill holes! I have owned my BT45 since STIHL came out with it! I have never had ANY trouble drilling holes with the BT45. It makes for a very convenient power tool where you don't have electricity or the battery wears down on your cordless drill. I have helped friends build deer stands in many a hunting spot, and they always ask for my BT45! The only thing I have ever put into my drill is GAS! Very dependable,powerful,gas powered,enjoyable to use STIHL tool. I would recommend the BT45 to anyone needing more than a disappointing battery powered drill!
