comment Corded vs Cordless Drill
I keep a 50' and a 30' extension cord. There's no corner of the property I cannot reach with them. My experience with cordless tools, is that after the first year or two, the batteries are always dead when you want to use them. Unless the industry has standardized power pack design, you'll find that replacement batteries do not come cheap.

comment Are those hooks usable for hanging coats and hats?
Angling the pegs upward will provide a better potential energy well for coats and other heavy, bulky objects. Pegs straight out like that, the bulk of a down coat will will push the coat's collar right off the peg.

Motor, or just a bad capacitor. Sometimes a motor with a defective capacitor will continue turning if you give it a push start.
