Excellent drill, great price and plenty of torque

 on December 17, 2017
By Lorne Muir
My 10 year old 14.4 volt drill (DeWalt) still runs great – problem is the batteries (2 that came in the kit) could not hold a charge anymore. When I went to buy a replacement I was surprised, not too shocked, to find one was like $50. Thought about it and for $99 was able to buy a new more powerful drill and 2 new batteries, so I did. This 18 volt has a lot more torque than the 14.4 V. It works great. For most of the home projects I will have, this drill is excellent.

Very solid tool, but outdated technology: heavy, relatively short battery life. Buy a modern drill with Li-Ion battery instead.

This is an old but proven with time model of Dewalt drill. It has been released over 10 years ago. NiCd 18V technology is considered dated. Batteries are too bulky and heavy for their fairly limited capacity. Regular size battery does not last very long on a single charge. The drill is also on the heavy side, with or without batteries. On a positive side, it has enough power for almost anything and is built strong.

Good screw gun

I’m a little disappointed because I thought this had a light when you push the trigger and that the bit would be magnetic, but both of these are things I got confused about. They are not included in this item, but they are on other models.

Dewalt performance!!

 on November 25, 2016
It’s a Dewalt! The batteries don’t quite last as long as I would like them to, but when at full power this thing rocks.. I like that it has an adjustable setting so that my screws don’t get too tight. the carrying bag wil ‘barely’ fit both batteries and the drill, and no way will it fit the charger too. Batteries take about 45min to 1hr for a full charge which is fairly quick. So all in all the bag could be a little larger to accomodate everything, and the batt’s could last a little longer, but I am still happy with the unit.

Burned up two before I got one that worked, but my current example is solid

 on July 20, 2017

I bought this drill/driver and immediately put it to hard use, building a workbench and some other furniture, driving a hole saw to put in some new deadbolts, etc. The first one I got burned up on the very first day. The driver got very hot, and then I smelled burning plastic, and it never turned again with normal torque or speed. That was while driving 3″ screws through 2×4’s. The second one I got died under identical circumstances. The third one I got has been marvelous, and hasn’t given me any trouble at all. I’ve fastened drywall, driven a holesaw through thick plywood, and drilled a huge number of holes and driven a huge number of fasteners into all kinds of materials without any problems. So, long story short, if you get a good specimen then this is a solid drill that will likely last you for life, but there are some defective units floating around so use your drill heavily early on and be prepared to return in the 30-day window it if you start having trouble.

Great Gift for Homeowners

 on August 17, 2017

I purchased this drill as a gift for my husband back in 2012 and he was very excited to be surprised with a powerful drill to use for household projects.He had a cheaper brand previously that he used for projects but it never had enough power and jobs took much longer than they do now. We have owned this drill for 5 years now and it has held up extremely well. It certainly lives up to the DeWalt name and I highly recommend it. This thing has helped us hang mini blinds throughout our home, changed out all of the screws in our doors, hung countless wall hangings, and the list goes on.

Just received this drill/driver. Not sure why the name includes driver; I consider a driver to be something different.

One of the best for around the home.

This is a quality product at a decent price. This model probably falls into the category of a little overkill for home use, but not what a professional would buy, if they were going to use it every day.We wanted to buy our daughter something that would last a long time, taking into consideration how often SHE will use it. She is 40 with 4 children, ranging from 5 to 19. Daddies are not around. This tool complimented a large selection of tools that we bought for her a couple months earlier. We also bought a nice kit of drill bits and screwdriver bits, etc. to go with the drill/driver. She has had it for about a year and no problems. She said, “It is a little heavy.” but since she is a massage therapist, we figured she could handle it. She has strong hands and arms.

For the faint of heart

Basic drill/driver that works – cheap, too. If you are a professional cabinetry maker, this isn’t for you. If you’re an idiot homeowner like me who has no clue what they are doing around the house, enjoys thinking that he is achieving constructive home repairs despite the fact he has to call a professional in about 75% of the time to repair his repairs, and if you genuinely enjoy the sounds of drills and holes being drilled for no good reason at all, then this baby is your ticket.
