Hilti are the best drills and make the best bits...
Dewalt I rate good but overpriced. My personal prefernce is
bosch and makita.

Robert I am curious as to the unusual vehicle (maybe) that is your photo backdrop.
looks 1950's -60's I'm just nosey  ;D

Them are rally spot lights. Still difficult to work out the car, could be a humble Mini in a Monte Carlo Rally spec ??

OK   the vehicle is an r plate disco 1   with a light pod on the bonnet    it was bought and built to do offroad events    with one particular event in mind that involved looking for code boards in the dark in forrests and offroad sites hence the extra lights
i am like this with other peoples photos see something and enquire about that part leaving the main subject alone :farmer:

We have Bosch rechargable drill and screwdriver kit. Used weekly initially and now almost daily since 2000. Had to replace one battery so bought two batteries at £50 each. They have had upward of 50 charges and still seem fine.

For serious work I would get a 1.5KW generator. Nothing fancy like a Honda EU. We have one in the shed at the far end for occasional work. Cost £80 s.h.

Could cable it, but make your own extension lead from proper rubber cable with 2.5mm csa flexible wire conductors as the volt drop on the cable for anything smaller will render a large appliance unusable. Cable comes from trade electrical retailer and will be £1 per metre plus VAT. Ours has it on 100 metre rolls. A normal 13A extension lead will use 1.5mm csa and be plastic sheathed -overheats in use so large volt drop and difficult to coil or uncoil in Winter.

I spent years with 'DIY' drills then discovered Festool   ......never looked back...really professional equipment, loads of power and great batteries...not cheap but worth every penny

mine is a C12 and more than capable of most things....just drilled a steel bracket to mount a 50mm towball....nae bother!
