My brother and I are going out to climb in South Dakota. We are looking to borrow a cordless hammer drill from someone in the Milwaukee or surrounding areas. We have previously bolted routes out in SD by hand and are looking for something a little faster. We are willing to meet at a location of your choosing. We will offer to buy two six packs of beer of your choosing and/or are open to any negotiations. We are hoping to have this no later than April 10th, 2017. Please PM me or comment on this forum.

Thanks

The fact that you even specify the drill needs to be "cordless" is not very confidence inspiring.

Be sure to align yourself with the bolting ethics of the area. Black Hills Climber's Coalition is a good place to start.

Bolting info can be found here - sylvanrocks.com/history_cus...

You might be best served by renting one.....or possibly forking over the $$ to purchase your own. Personally I'd never hand over that type of tool to a couple of strangers who are planning on taking it several states away. Good luck!

Can you actually unironically imagine defending this thought pattern?

This phrase you have been using "actually unironically imagine" i dont quite understand. But my drill batteries go in pack with about 5' of cord to the drill. I used to fifi the batteries to a piece below me with about 30' of cord to the drill and I climbing. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
