FYI: I used mine for the second time this past weekend. Worked great, again. Great efficiency, etc. And for the record: I used my new 14.4v DeWalt XRP Cordless Drill to grind the grain---over 25 lbs total---and the bastard didn't even slow down. Gawd I love that drill.

Just remember that batteries can only produce so much power, and they degrade as you use them. So while it may be powerful now, after a couple of batches you might notice the battery not providing as much juice. That's another big reason to consider going corded.
