    Great drill that really accomplishes anything I throw at it. I’ve been able to easily screw in 3″ construction screws into dry fir. Great for flooring applications and really nice slow speed to make sure you’re starting steady.

    The two batteries that come with this kit are great. I’ve been able to go a full day without swapping. The only time I need to swap more often is if I’m using a 1″ wood drill bit going through very dry fir beams/joists. I’ve been able to use an 18″ long 1″ wood drill bit without so much as a slowdown. Very impressive for a drill this size. It’s my general use drill that I use for pretty much anything.

    It is impossible to beat the deal on this cordless drill, but be aware that this is Dewalt’s entry level drill. It comes with their smaller batteries (1700mAh) compared to the larger capacity XRP batteries (2400mAh). So when people say that replacement batteries are $60 each they are referring to the larger XRP batteries. The batteries that this drill comes with are not even sold separately, or if they are not at any stores that I have seen. It also has a limited speed compared to their larger and heavier XRP drill which also has the hammerdrill capability for drilling into masonry and hard material.

    It has treated me well for household jobs and carpentry jobs around the house, but it has its limits. Example: I wanted to get rid of a stump in the yard and the directions for the “stump out” required drilling 10″ deep by 1/2″ wide holes. The drill could not handle it. The motor started smoking. To be fair I knew this was asking a lot.

    The reason I still give it 5 starts is that it finished the job with a lot of coaxing and still works despite melting something internally. Solid drill but if you want to do some heavy drilling then upgrade to the XRP model.

    This is an “old school” drill that in fact has been discontinued by Dewalt. It has a power rating of 380 which is somewhat less than the average drill (480). Battery size is 1.7AH while most Dewalt drills now have at least 2.4AH.
    This drill does not have a LED work light which is standard on all drills made in the past few years. Weight is about average at 5.2 Lbs. with battery. All-in-all for 89 bucks this is still a good deal especially for the home owner market. If you think about it, the batteries alone are worth $89…so in a sense, you’re getting the drill, charger and case for free.
