"I've had 2 of these drills since Screwfix started selling them several (?) years ago. They get hammered almost every day. I have 4 batteries and they charge in less than an hour. They are used on several old boat restorations, converting the garage into a workshop, building a hen house, building a large steel shed with the panels attached with 100's of self tappers, a wooden summer house, hammer drilling in concrete for expanding bolts, a large chicken run and a large timber store/barn. Nearly forgot, I built a large decked area at the back of the house mainly using 3 inch stainless screws by the hundred.They have never failed, the lights both work and the big mains Bosch stays in it's case. As long as Dewalt make this version and Screwfix sell it for £99 I shall keep on buying them. If the oldest one fails it will be because I have thrashed it and I will just buy another."
"From the moment you pick it up you can see its a quality bit of kit. A tad heavy but thats as its well made. battery life good, and very powerfull. Bought to repalce an old matika and its streets ahead. Only marred by appalling service at Chichester branch, but complaint to Screwfix Head Office resolved issue. But I will never ever use Chichester branch again"
"I bought it for a friend who has a dog that barks constantly with his current drills (bosch) I lent him my drill to try and his dog was quiet. so now he has his own, he can drill all day long in silence...result."
"My 6 years old combi drill started losing charge so I bought another brand from amazon but then a friend of mine got one of these and recommended it so I thought I will spend a bit more and get a similar one.
I have been using cordless drills for years and had several brands but this by far is the best cordless combi drill I have ever used. The grip is very comfortable, the drill is well built, Never been able to drill into masonry with a cordless drill before but with this one without any hassle such a powerful tool. The sound of the motor is very quite if I compare with all the other cordless drills I had especially once engaged in drilling or screwdriving. It has an LED light which I think is a good feature but the location of light is not the best.
The chuck: It is made of steel not strong plastic like other makes. I had other drills with a keyless chuck which you can tighten the bits with one hand but you can never lock-unlock even with both hands. I now have another Bosch hammer drill with a similar keyless chuck, but I still need to use both hands to lock-unlock, with this one it is a one hand lock-unlock which is absolutely amazing. It feels good.
The charger: It says on the charger that it is a one hour charger, but it charges my batteries in 40-45 minutes.
The downside: It doesn't come with bits.. but I am looking at the bright side, not long ago dewalts products used to be so expensive with bits and all other accessories, now they are cheap but you need to buy the bits you are more likely to use separately; which as a matter of fact are not that expensive either..
So overall, I LOVE IT. You don't know what you are missing until you have it.
Would I recommend it to others? without any hesitation go for it."
"after having quite a few cordless drills that have not been up to par i decided to buy this one so far it has been great charge last a good time and there is 2 batteries single twist chuck works well very pleased"
"bought this after my mate got fed up with me at his door to borrow his, it has done everything I have thrown at it and with two batteries and one hour charge I doubt you could find a better one for the money. 5 stars to the screwfix staff a the paisley store who were very pleasant and knew what they were talking about."
"An absolute bargain of a DeWalt cordless drill. I use mine for all different things including winding up/down the legs on my caravan. 1 charge lasts long enough for more than 3 ups and downs, which is better than the previous cordless drill I used to use."
"I needed a drill quickly and noticed screwfix had a deal on this piece of kit and boy am I glad I did some say that the drills at this price are dumbed down pro tools but not in this case. It performed faultlessly and I'm afraid it opened the replacement of all my tools and boxes to dewalt FANTASTC THANK YOU"
"This drill works well but not for very long as batteries go flat very quickly. If doing a lot of drilling/ driving with it you'll need 3 batteries at least. 1 in use, 1 on charge and 1 spare. Very early on wished I'd bought a different drill. Great price but only if performance does the job for you and it hasn't for me. Not used much now just sits around as a back up."
