"Delighted so far with my DeWalt 18v drill. It's been used regularly now for two weeks with no problem. The guide book enclosed is a bit light for starter DIYers, eg description of Torque settings could be better explained. In saying that the drill is comfortable to use and relatively light. The kit has 3 batteries so useful for constant use however my first charged lasted the best part of a week with regular use. No hesitation in recommending it."
"Got various drills, was in the market for a new cordless. First job was to assemble a new garden shed (plastic). The shed came in a million pieces. However my new drill made short work of it. The additional batteries are a fantastic bonus. No waiting around for recharging. Great piece of kit would recommend. Cheers DeWALT"
"I never use anything other than DeWalt for cordless drills nowadays. I've tried other brands but these are the best. Metal gearbox, good battery life, excellent torque for demanding drilling. Only 4 stars for features as one of my other DeWalt cordless drills has 3 speed gearbox and this only has 2, but I knew that when I bought it so not a major deal! And a great price and quick delivery from Screwfix as usual."
"My old Ni cad powered batteries are beginning to hold less and less charge to the point they have to be on charge all the time. Ridiculously, the cost of replacing them is uneconomical with it being cheaper to replace the drill which comes with new batteries than to buy the batteries. So much for recycling. The recycling centres must be full of perfectly good power tools with dead Ni cad batteries. When I saw this deal I did not hesitate. This drill is very good for general work and comes with 3 batteries so you should not need to stop and wait for batteries to charge up as there should always be two fully charged ones to hand. It will be used a lot this coming year and I expect it to perform well. It has a 3 year guarantee if you register online (dont forget to unsuscribe from pestering email adds although I would have thought Dewalt don't need to use that type of pressure on most genuine working people). If you need a general high quality drill which should perform very well and last for a long time then don't miss this offer."
"Needed this to replace my old DeWalt as batteries had expired, shame because drill was fine. Anyway, for a bit more money than new batteries you get a good combination drill with useful features like work light, hammer action, so all works as it should, also 3 batteries included which is great value, they are only 1.3ah but this is fine for general use and there are 3 so not likely to left high and dry, one minor but irritating point is there is no belt clip but there are fixing holes so hopefully can retro fit one."
"Brilliant drill so much lighter and more compact then the previous make , battery's are so small and hold a great deal of charge, wooed functions are fantastic and never had any issues with the hammer drill setting rather . So much better than the old bulky dewalt drill , can hold and use this one for a lot longer without having to take a break to rest your hand !"
"Great to have a drill that still has a charge in the batteries even after a week of non use. Mainlly used for general building le: fitting kitchens, drywall, bathrooms, stairs etc....... so one day sees non stop use ( ×3 batteries 1.3ah is great) in all modes, and then it won't be used for weeks or only now and then when other work is being carried out. With three bateries I bought 2nd drill body to speed up work"
"A great drill! It's powerful, feels well balanced and it can easily do all the DIY jobs I'll ever need to do. The 3 quick charging lithium ion batteries that come with the drill mean that I will never run out of charge no matter how long the job takes. The hammer gear works well for masonry and the built in light which comes on whenever you start drilling/screwing actually helps more than I thought it would. Overall, I 'm really pleased with my most recent purchase."
"Purchased this drill last week as it was on one of Screwfix's fantastic offers. Never owned a DeWalt before and was pleasantly surprised of the quality, torque, battery life and the overall size of the drill. This drill is small and light but doesn't half pack a punch.. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another tomorrow & with the offer you get a USB charger free - so you can charge your phone or tablet from a drill battery.. Amazing idea..."
"Purchased to replace a much used Dewalt of 10yr vintage. A great tool but the box could have been thought out better. Why take the bit out every time you put it away? My last one had a belt hook, this one it's an optional extra which is a pain."
"Excellent value combi drill. The 3 batteries, with fast charge, facilitate continuous use. The hammer drill, screw torque settings, variable trigger speed and LED spot light function make it a very versatile and reliable drill."
