"What a fantastic piece of equipment to have well worth the price and the performance out weighs and drill that i have ever had before when i comes to combi drills i dont need to take two drills with me any more just the one does everything i need for all my small diy jobs excelent"
"Great drill I'm really pleased with it. I thought three batteries was excessive but in use is a good idea for all day drilling. The LED is good but rather annoyingly the point you want illuminated ie the screw head is just in the shadow of the drill chuck! I'm not sure about the auto brake. It seems a bit fierce. From full speed to dead stop instantly can't be good for the tool. the dead stop is accompanied by long spark shooting from one of the side vents."
"In have personaly owned one of these 18volt beasts for 2 years and it's never let me down no matter what I've asked of it, and it's still going strong. On the strength of that, this week I purchased 2 units for the caretakers to use for maintenace jobs on our school site, (had our budget allowed, I would have gone for the Li-ion version at only an extra £20 each!, but the Ni-Cd version is still a good buy ), they are robust, reliable and well ballanced and also comes with a 3 yr warranty!! The Dewalt reputation is superb. Excelent value for money whatever version you choose. I highly recommend these tools, trade or DIY this is a tool that will last for years."
"This is a well engineered tool, that seems well balanced so not as heavy to use as you might think and therefore very comfortable to use over long periods. The hammer action is not as powerful as the one on my mains drill but when that packed up half way through a job the DeWalt did a great job drilling into really hard concrete."
"Had some builders working on an extension and pretty much all their power tools were DeWalt. I've had a few rubbish makes before and either the chargers have packed up or the batteries have given up the ghost so I bit the bullet and paid what I consider to be a lot of money. However, it became apparent after the first couple of uses that this drill is far superior to anything I've owned before and all I can say is why did it take me so long to get one! I have since added a DeWalt Jigsaw and that is also the best I have ever owned.
Three batteries means I am never without charge and as a non-professional it's perfect for my requirements."
"After years of buying and using other makers' products I finally bought a DeWalt on a great offer from Screwfix Sale. It's in a different league in all respects - feel, performance, battery life, power, whatever. What took me so long?"
