"this drill is fantastic value for money, it is light to use and has more than enough power for your average diy-er. I have had a similar drill for many years and have used it for many projects over two houses with no problems it finally died after I dropped it while up a ladder fixing guttering."
"Although I would rate this tool as tops, I would caution against its future proof ness because the batteries that accompany them are not the best. Also readers need to know that these tools are being phased out and replacement batteries are very difficult to find and expensive to replace when you eventually find one. It is cheaper to buy a new tool just to get the batteries rather than buying replacement batteries. Screwfix should make that clear to customers and should restock these batteries if they want to continue to sell these tools. I have now dumped my perfectly working DW tools in favour of lithium batteried tools."
"Well, I always wanted a DeWalt drill but never quite had the money to buy one, but having seen this I reckoned I'd take the plunge as my old Bosch drill battery had died and it would cost me a daft price to replace. Really good DIY drill at a very good price and with two batteries will probably see me out."
"Being rather knew to the industry I needed to upgrade my diy grade tools to something a bit better. This is a great entry level drill that has handled everything I have thrown at it so far in the year I have had it...."
"Ive owned this drill model for 3 years and during that time have used in in the refurbishment of a number of houses. Comment:- Amazing bit of kit have used it on every aspect of the works and it has never let me down. |Just upgraded to the Li-Lon version and it has a lot to live up to. Dewalt please carry on making tools of this quality and reliability"
"Good drill this was a replacement for a previous one that malfunctioned. Screwfix attempted a repair but subsequently replaced it. They did this in an efficient manner. Everything can be unreliable but the test of a good company is how they manage the problem. Screwfix did this without fuss."
"I was looking to replace the battery on my old drill, but couldnt find a battery anywhere, after seeing the cost for a replacement battery it was cheaper to buy a new combi drill to replace my old one,
Used it for the 1st time today excellent loads of power drilled through timber like a hot knife through butter.
"Bought this as a replacement for an old B&D whose battery would no longer charge and cost of replacement was prohibitive. As a serious DIY'er this has been great, and having two batteries really helps remaining productive. Never used a drill with a light before, and though I thought it might be helpful, it doesn't actually shine on the spot where drilling! Minor irritation, but apart from that, recommended."
