DeWalt DCD985M2-GB 18V 4.0Ah Li-Ion Cordless Combi Drill XR
This drill far exceeded my expectations that were high anyway after reading others experiences with this drill.
Two batteries is a must and the 4amps last all day easily even after drilling approx 100-120 holes in concrete through 1.5in wood using the 6mm Bosch multipurpose drill bit.
If you have the pennies this is your drill.
Plenty of weight and power and the case is pretty tough as well, having used it to stand on (when closed) for a couple of inches extra height...!
Well done DeWalt!

DEWALT DCD985 XR 4Ah
I previously had the DeWalt 18v XRP Ni Cad(for 8 years!!) and has not let me down once. I decided to buy the li-Ion version as I have read nothing but good reviews and reports about it. I put this drill to the test almost immediately, as a shipwright I needed a drill that would, at times, be able to cope with drilling into some very hard woods/timbers. To date it has not let me down!! With the bigger Ah batteries I have not had to change/re-charge the batteries as often as before. The reliability rated at 4 because I have only been using it for a short while. So far I would recommend this drill to anyone in the Trade(s) who is looking for a drill that is up to any task....EXCELLENT!!

Bought this to replace me old one which I had owned for 15 years it was still going strong but i dropped it 50feet, this new drill is light years ahead with power to spare, have used it for two days solid and battery still going strong, it was well worth the money and would recommend it to anybody
