DeWalt DCD785L1GP-GB 18V 3.0Ah Li-Ion Cordless Combi Drill XR
A very versatile drill
This Dewalt drill has more than proved it's worth. It is quick to use, loads of torque making it suitable for any task.
It is very easy to control allowing finger tip control of the speed.
Battery life is the best I have experienced and quick to re-charge.
I would not be without it.

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.

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.

Combi drill/Driver XR DCD785L1
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 !!
