Air Drill or ROS???

>I have about killed my Sioux Drill. Already replaced the bearings, but the old beast is just not the same. Squeals and whines and the reversing switch has always been problematic (replaced it once too).

I have air at my lathe from a 2 1/2 HP compressor (in my mind compressed air is an essential turning tool) and am considering switching to an air powered drill. Anyone have any opinions on the Grex drill or the Grex ROS?? I'm thinking the drill may be more versatile than the ROS, but not having tried either, am unsure. All opinions welcome.
