"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."
"You know from the heft in your hand this drill is solidly built, and it looks good to last under even tough conditions. The grip and balance are perfect, the power is impressive, and the reverse action and torque adjustments are well designed for easy use. Extras like the work-area light that comes on when the trigger is activated is useful in all dark corners (or when returning to the workshop at night!), and all in all this has become my favourite cordless drill ever. Having three NiCads is in my experience a much better answer than the overpriced Li-Ion units that in practice often underperform, and cost an arm and a leg to replace."
"Ordered Saturday and was using this great piece of kit on Monday morning, tackled jobs that my old drill struggled with . Plenty of power and torque. Good carry case with plenty of space so no need for a degree in flex folding or puzzle solving to put the kit away in its case. Definitely recommend this item. Feels strong and robust although a little heavy. Quick recharge time. Only negative is it could do with one or two screw bits in the box to compliment the drill for convenience."
