Great professional combi drill
6 Mar 2014
By christhesink

"I got this drill after my previous one started to struggle with the simplest of jobs. I wanted a 3 speed metal chucked drill and after a lot of research I got the DCD985. I have been using this drill for 9 months and it is fantastic. I have only started using my bigger drills again because I am now working in houses that have engineering brick. It will drill into engineering brick but why wreck a great drill when I got bigger corded and cordless sds drills to do the job quicker.
For 7 months the DCD985 was the only drill I had on the job every day. It drilled into wood, metal and masonry with ease. It have used this drill to screw in 4" concrete fixings when I'd normally go straight for the impact driver. Battery life is great and the indicator is extremely useful.
This is a professional drill which is reflected in the price. You get what you pay for and I have seen this drill outclass a number of other drills including Dewalt drills. Highly recommended.

"such a brilliant product, it speaks for itself, a really worthwhile investment for anyone who needs a tool to last. excellent torque, and superb battery life. price is a little steep, but still worth it if you need something to last"

So Proud Of You Dewalt !!

"I bought this drill thinking to myself,Oh what have i done....(Being that i am a Bosch power Tool user for years). I recently found myself getting this DCD 985 for the simple reason that other ppl i know use DeWalt all the time and rate them as being the best on the market. Well they are not wrong,It feels just right in the hand as well as coming with 2 x 18Volt 4Ah Indicator batteries. What a bonus this is as my previous Bosch only came with one battery. The biggest factor with this DCD985 Combi-Drill is the 3 gear transmission, Unlike the other Dewalt drills,This one allows you to have complete control. I have also bought the Dewalt DCF895 Brushless Impact Driver (Bare Unit) to make use of the secondary battery. So now i have got the two devices and could not be happier,I feel as though i shall not need to buy anything in the drill dept for a few years (considering i have 5 Drills & one Impact Driver) & thanks to the 3 year warranty that comes with when registered online on the DeWalt website. Thank you Screwfix. Btw, my mrs ain't happy at me getting yet another power tool,he he he."

"not that pleased to have to buy this as De Walt decided to stop making the 14.4v NiCad batteries despite having only just stopped selling the drills! That being said, it's a great drill, more or less as powerful as an electric drill, manages 22mm thru masonry and even a 4" core drill used gently. Battery life is huge- only change about every other day normally. Chuck etc usual high XRP standard, plenty of torque for 4" screws (breaks bits before runs out of power!) Even potentially gimmicky LED light actually quite useful."

The power is amazing packing 80 nm of torque and 22 torque settings giving a wide range for all applications .
10/10 Dewalt
