How to overcome the run out issue.

 on August 18, 2012
By Nick Marley
I purchased this combo kit from Amazon over a month ago after reading all of the reviews and doing as much research as I could. This is the third Dewalt cordless drill I’ve owned. The last one I purchased approx. 5 years ago was a DC980KA which also has a 1/2 inch chuck. I had issues with run out (wobble) on that drill right out of the box. So it was disappointing to me that Dewalt didn’t fix this problem in all this time and with a new model drill. This made me look at other manufacturer’s drills to see if I would find a better product. What I found was that Dewalt wasn’t alone with the run out issue. Pretty much any drill that uses a 1/2 inch Jacobs spindle lock chuck was affected. So what to do? For me the important factors in choosing a drill were:

Problematic , I hope this isn’t the demise of a great brand .

I bought this exact set after borrowing a friend’s for 3 weeks. He had his own home building business for 30 years and highly recommended/endorsed Dewalt quality and this set for its price for the above avg DIY’r. The impact drill has great torque and would drill 3″ zinc screws through double stacked 2/4″ into 3/4 plywood with no problem. Long battery life also. I built a 2/4 framed heavy duty wood crate 40″ x 40″ x 47″ almost on only one battery. Great product and Made in the USA.

Great for the beginner DIYer looking to start a electric tool collection!

Dewalt hasn’t let me down and they still haven’t with this product. I decided to replace my electric tools with ones that all used the same battery. I already had an old dewalt drill (which still runs like a champ) but I didn’t have any other tools that used the same battery. I had just recently bought the dewalt 20v wire trimmer that uses the same style battery so I decided to make the jump. I like the bag, it isn’t too big so it is easily portable and still has some space if you didn’t have a separate case for bits and just wanted to bring a few with you to the job site. I haven’t put the drill through its paces yet but from what I have used it works excellent. The impact drill works fantastic. I did not buy this to replace a air impact but decided to use it for some tire work and it easily removed the lugs from my vehicle (keep in mind I do properly torque down my nuts so if you have someone that decided to over torque yours down this impact may not have enough power to pull it off.) Now I don’t recommend torquing down lug nuts with an impact but I do like to see how close to the proper torque i can get with an impact. A quick tightening brought my lugs pretty close to the required torque for my vehicle (85 ft-ibs) just to keep you a reference.

A high quality combo set

I purchased this set for light-moderate home usage. So far I have been very pleased by the set.

So much faster than the old way.

I should have purchased this product a long time ago. Makes the job so much faster. I would say at least 1/5 the time it took with a single drill. Didn’t think I would ever use the belt hook but turns out I used them on my very first project. Had a drill on each side of me so I could drill the hole then sink the screw. So much faster than the old way.

These 2 tools are the best I’ve ever had

By Hector D. Iglesias
I’m a homeowner that do lots of projects and also help friends with their repair problems. These 2 tools are the best I’ve ever had. Compact, powerful, batteries last plenty enough and they can be quick charged anyway.

Convenient and well-built

This set is replacing an 18-Volt DeWalt whose battery was replaced twice after several years of heavy use.

no clip included.

not a noticable improvement over Milwuakee. did not include the BIT CLIP as indicated in the description – I think i would have ordered the Porters instead.
