Rated 5 out of 5Â by Keano Very good drill/driver
Great drill/driver exactly what you would expect from dewalt. Battery lasts for ages before requiring a charge and does not deplete charge when not being used. I was a bit worried with only getting one battery. But I have now owned this drill for some time now and have never been stuck waiting on battery. Would defo recommend for DIY or trade.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SuperFrog Good product, chuck went early
Have had this drill for a year and a half and i has served me well. Hammer is good, electric brake is excellent and it is a fine driver too.
With good bits, it can do jobs my big one sruggles to (I was specially impressed in brick and concrete, performed several 14x150 and 16x70mm in bricks without problem or a battery change).
I was surprised to see that there was significant wobble using longer bits, and had a go at changing the chuck for screwfix 50008. Runs true again. Sorted. More expensive models dewalt DCD985 DCD995 come with the all metal chuck which is nicer.

My first cordless drill/driver - and now wondering why I waited so long - this product has a mass of features and with variable speed / torque (14) combinations is proving more than flexible enough to meet all the needs of the trade pro or regular DIY-er. The keyless chuck system is great and makes for instant changing between your DeWalt bits. The whole tool is so light compared with my old Bosch drill and even with the 3ah Li-ion battery in place, (this gives simply hours of power on a 1 hour charge) , I could use it all day long. The whole package comes with a stonking great mains charger and is housed in a strong , foam lined case to keep the whole lot together. Powerful, sturdy, flexible and light - buy it - its a no-brainer !!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by diyboustie Awesomely powerful drill
Bought this drill as an upgrade to my 5 year old ryobi combi which I bought from screwfix.
Just bought a new house which we are currently doing a full refurb on so I wanted a new more powerful drill but still with the freedom of battery power.
First job was installing a new aerial cable through 2 walls with a 30cm, 10mm drill bit. Absolutely amazed at the power, it had no trouble at all and the power was relentless.
Quick charging but seems to last forever with theÂ 3ah battery.
Cheapest price on the internet for this model I could find.
This drill has the quality of a professional traders tool but at a diyers price.
