"ive been after a good quality drill for a long time and was glad when i visited my local branch and told the staff what i need and they pointed me to this exceptional drill, amazing value for money for a DeWalt, very pleased with it no problems. absolute dream to use and very lightweight and robust takes anything u can throw at it. BEST BUY"
"You get a lot for your money with this drill. Makes jobs around the house so much easier. Quick and easy to swap bits and change use so you can do it all with one tool. Does lack a little bit of hammer grunt when trying to drill at the larger end of its range, but usually solved by starting with a small hole and working up to the size you want."
"Bought one of these over 4 years ago & have used it extensively since. All features of the drill still work like new, even the chuck, gearbox & hammer action.
When one of the batteries stopped holding charge recently a quick bit of research showed the best value way of getting hold of replacement batteries was to buy another drill with 2 batteries. Great justification for the luxury of having one for drilling & one for driving!
"I have done a fair bit of DIY and I used less know drills. I was reluctant to spend the money on this drill, but having talked to pro builders I went with their recommendation. I wish I asked them many years ago. It is a pleasure to use, you can feel the power and with its great balance when holding feel this will do me till I am ready to pass over to my son."
"When buying DeWalt you always expect quality but this being my first major purchase for my Dad as a present I am absolutely delighted that it'll do the jobs he needs it to do with minimum effort. It's not too heavy which is handy as he's old lol and it's powerful, he's making planters and borders etc so it needs to be heavy duty but without cables all over the place etc, this is just perfect and we're both over the moon with this product."
"I have been using electric drills for more years than I care to admit. Always the same make and one that was always popular with home DIYers. This time I decided on a change and bought a DeWalt. The signs are good. Easy to use and comes in a good quality case. My brother in law bought his a year ago and has been very pleased with its performance and he uses his for his business. If it handles his more heavy duty work I am sure it will be OK for my home jobs!"
"I bought one of these drills around 15 years ago. It has done tons of work, been dropped, got wet and is still going strong. Batteries are now almost spent and will only last around 15 minutes. So I have replaced with exact same drill. Why pay more, it does everything and is bulletproof."
"Used this drill for a couple of years myself (retired plumber), my son wanted a new drill so there was no contest, purchased another one for him. Good VFM and it does everything you could ask of a combi-drill. Recommended."
"I Got this as a gift and use it for things like kitchens, door frames in new openings, plaster boarding and all sorts of different tasks and it really performs well. if the instructions are adhered to with regards to battery care this drill will last me a long time. i would say probably ten years plus, my 15.5v DIY STORE own brand drill with one battery did me for the last 5 years with proper care taken of the tool. The DeWalt batteries require a long 10 hour initial charge and this can be done whenever performance drops to refresh and equalize the cells in the battery extended its performance and life. I would imagine that the few people who struggle with battery life did not adhere to the instructions correctly. The Person who got me this as a gift read many reviews and was worried about the batteries but from my experience people who buy these are never disappointed. Has plenty of bite for woodwork and drilling plug holes. The clutch allows for very accurate depth as drilling stops exactly when needed. Low speed high torque setting is excellent for drilling wood and driving screws. Excellent drill"
