"Using the DeWalt DC100KA-GB 18V 1.3Ah Ni-Cd Cordless Combi Drill in combination with the DeWalt Extreme 2 5 pc Masonry Drill Bit Set to drill through some hard bricks was just fantastic - like watching a knife go through butter ( well almost ) For the money this is an absolute bargain and very well featured also; but I can't comment on the reliability as i've only had it a short time,, so i've given it 3 stars. However it is supposed to be a very good make"
"After B&D, Boschx2 and Hitachi I have now joined the DeWalt club to match their top quality drill bits I've used for years. My only reason for not giving the full 5 star rating is that the weight of the unit is very noticeable after about 10 mins. when used horizontally. I realised this possibility when I made the purchase but at the low pack price I traded off against the extra cost of the more modern li-ion units. However, it is so solid and the most powerful non-mains drill I've ever used!"
"Having a need to drill holes when up a ladder I thought a cordless drill would be better than my old wired hammer drill. I was worried whether it would be powerful enough but the DeWalt DC 100KA-GB does the job perfectly. Plenty of power with torque to match and good battery life between charges. The second battery can be a god send if you have a lot of holes to drill and are away from a power source although the battery recharges quickly. I am very impressed equally as good as a wired drill but safer especially up a ladder"
"My cheaper drill (another make)soon failed. Not wanting to buy new batteries I bought this base model. It's for myhome use. It is well built and looks very strong. It seems to be perfect for me. I love the new method of changing the bits. No key is needed.
Only time will tell how long it will last but it will surely be around for many many years."
"This is the third of these units we now have on our site, we use them every day (they work hard) and last a long time, I would advise anybody to purchase one of these, 2 batterys and a 1hour charger are great, Pugwash67"
"I shop online all of the time but I have to say from ease of use to delivery everything was absolutely fantastic from start to finish would definately recommend using this website plus drill was excellent value. A little disappointed I didnt get the free tape measure as I was only 1p away from being able to get it free but he ho still fantastic service well done screwfix :)"
"purchased to replace old unit 2 years ago used daily always exceed max capacity of drill The newer ion battery are very expensive and cant be recharged as many times as ni cads so we will be sticking with these drills"
"As far as I'm concerned, this has to be up among the best of rechargeable drills on the market in the price range. It's light, has an easy to use chuck and packs a punch when drilling into masonry. Love it!!!"
"The one piece of kit that everyone needs is a good portable drill, and this is one of the best. An excellent all round product tough and powerful enough for site work but small and light enough for more intricate jobs. The 17 torque setting allow for fine adjustment for different materials. Two batteries and a quick chrager mean you are unlikely to have to stop working . I so pleased with mine, I have purchased a second one so I can have one on site and one at home."
"Never had a cordless drill before, but bought this after doing lots of research. Used it to fit guttering. Couldn't believe how much better a cordless drill is. This is light (I'm not a rufty-tufty builder), and nicely balanced - just fits into your hand. Love the keyless chuck. Worked really well, and was a joy to use."
"Ordered this drill at the weekend and it arrived first thing Monday morning, fantastic service. Used it today to drill some ally angle and it just oozes quality. Both batteries took just the stated 1 hour to charge. Highly recommended at this price point."
