DeWalt DCH253N-XJ 3.1kg 18V Li-Ion XR Cordless SDS Plus Drill - Bare (2268G)

This DeWalt DCH253N-XJ cordless SDS Plus drill has excellent vibration control of 6.6m/s² and a cordless, soft-grip design that make it comfortable for long periods of use. The LED light enables you to use the tool in darker areas and tight corners, and the 18V Li-ion battery improves overall performance and maintenance, and maximises run time. The drill's rotation stop mode is suited for light chiselling in plaster, tiles and render and its impact stop mode is ideal for rotary only drilling into wood and metal. The multi-position side handle and lightweight design make it easy to handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Excellent drill but relatively compact and light to some other drills I have used. No complaints at all and all at a fair price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE DO NOT BUY!! As a tradesman who relies on his tools like a second appendage it is important to be able to pick up a tool and put it to work without too much bother, agreed over time things will tire but not after 12 months! I bought this heap of junk just over 15 months ago and it has been back to Dewalt twice for repair,the first time after 12 months then 2 months after that and now its just failed again for the 3rd time 3 weeks after being returned to me from repair during a job which required lots of stone drilling! I have owned it for 15 months now and I am bitterly regretting spending all that money on it! To top it all off, the Dewalt 3 year guarantee is very useful IF you can get through to someone to talk to! 65 mins on hold then 5 hours before a callback was answered! Diaboloical support. My advice, be very wary of buying Dewalt tools for the trade, they are NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE and their support is terrible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Incredibly light, it is still good but I expected it to be better with the amount of money I spent.
