Can anyone recommend a good joist driller?

Purchased many drills in my time & still I am unsure to what joist drills to supply my lads with. Tried the angle makita's & they were useless.

any ideas???????:(

Augers are good but get balls up when you hit an un-foreseen nail...........

thanks for the comment, will have a look. was looking more for what machine you use rather than the bit though

Hey mate.

I think the Hilti SR16 110V is probably the best joist drill Ive used.:D
