"I am an electrician and I have always used Dewalt products as I believe they are unbeatable. But lately my old 12v and 18v NiCd drills have been letting me down with poor battery's. So I decided to get one of the new lithium drills, I think this is fantastic values for £169.99 as it includes 2 x 3ah batteries although you don't need two!!!
I have used this drill to drill a hole in concrete with a 1m masonry bit for an earth rod didn't loose power at all, I used the same battery all day drilling holes for plugs and screwing screws into timber and it's still going strong. More than enough power !!! I would say it's more powerful than my old 18v drill
So if your planning on buying a new drill I would defiantly recommend this one!!!"
"Bought this to replace a 7 year old RS battery drill thought that drill was brilliant until I used this Dewalt it's a full kilo lighter than the RS one which was an 18 volt but the power from Dewalt is equivalent fits the hand nicely and goes through masonary great, only downside is that the light throws a shadow on the drilling point. Also it comes with two 3amp Li-on batterys and they take about one hour to charge. All in all great drill, would I buy another? You bet."
