"My first purchase from dewalt ever and it's fair to say I'm impressed with the quality, feel and workmanship of this drill. The torque on the drill makes it feel strong when in use and the weight distribution in use is exceptional compared to my old battery operated drill. The power of the tool is great and the battery charge time and length of use is exceptional also. Very impressed and would highly recommend to anyone to purchase if looking for a top end battery operated drill for general DIY and construction work. Worth every penny!! As a new Screwfix member the process for ordering and pickup / delivery on this item and others I've ordered in the last two weeks is top notch - cheers guys!"
"I've had this a few weeks now, and its performing very well. Its incredibly powerful for its size. Well balanced, and with the 2 x 4AH batteries I can get a days work done without recharging. 3 years warranty makes this ideal."
"I took a chance and bought this when it was on a special offer. been using it over a year now and can find anything to fault it. there's plenty of oomph for the voltage and the hammer is really impressive. batteries last for a very long time (trying to think when one has run out on me). it's also light weight enough to use for long periods and the varied torque allows for a wide range of screwing from door frame bolts to cabinet hinges.."
"Always wanted to get a DeWalt drill and as my cheapo one packed up I thought I'd splash out and get something worth while. I've not had it long so I don't know if it'll be good on reliability but it feels "right" in my hand and I can tell it's well engineered. I was drawn to the £20 off the price tag. Most expensive drill I've ever bought so hopefully it will live up to the reputation that DeWalt has. If I was wealthy, I'd replace all my stuff with DeWalt gear"
"Only had the drill a short time, so can't really say how reliable it is over time. I've already put it to good use and I'm very impressed with the battery life. The torque compares very well with a corded drill. It's light enough for prolonged use, but has a nice quality feel. Would be perfect if it brewed up!!"
"I've been looking for a new cordless drill for some time and when I saw the offer price it was too good to miss. I've used it a lot since I bought it and there's still no sign of needing to recharge the battery. It's handled every job extremely well and the variable speed & torque setting as well as the inbuilt light have made me very happy with this. I only wish I'd bought it some time ago."
"This is a great drill and excellent value (bought it in the sale at a discount!) It has all thee features I could ever think of - and more - and has the feel of a strong, substantial product. heavy enough to feel solid without giving me wrist-strain every time I use it. Having two batteries makes working outside much easier, and the power of the drill makes all the jobs I need to do simple and straightforward. I bought one because I had seen so many tradesmen on building sites where I work use them. I highly recommend this drill. I cannot really rate "reliability" yet as I haven't had it that long, hence lower rating."
"i have owned dew alt tools for years and always found them reliable...what frustrates me most about all the power tool suppliers is the carrying cases....getting the cable back in the box.....not user friendly...."
"Why are we always asked for a review 2 days after buying something that should last 5 years? Until then I can say that my first impressions are that this is obviously a quality product. It feels good in the hand, is fairly light considering the large batteries and makes you feel confident that it will do the job. I have given 3 stars for features as it is a drill. It goes forwards backwards and it hammers a bit. If it gave financial advice or made the occasional cup of tea it would be a definite 5, but it's a drill, it drills. Come back and read my review in 5 years and I will fill you in on the reliability stakes. As regards Screwfix, excellent service as usual."
"I bought this when I purchase my new house, I looked at lower quality brands and bit the bullet. I have used other drills and it's unrilvalled. Build quality is immense, battery life is great and it's completely up to the job, I've fitted windows and drilled through the frames etc and it's not backed down to a job yet. VERY good product."
