I would have to take a little bit from some other reviewers when providing my response to this drill set. As one of the other reviewer stated, the impact driver is fantastic. The compact drill, on the other hand, as one of the others mentioned has a horrible chuck. The first one I received, if I put in my mason bit which is about 12 inches long, then the wobble at the tip of the bit a full quarter inch. I put up some drywall in my basement, and when drilling holes in it to put some anchors in for some screws, even that short drill bit of maybe 3 inches wobbled so much that the hole ended up being larger than intended – not to mention it is difficult to start a hole when the tip of the drill is wobbling like that. I was so disgusted that I decided to ask Amazon to send me a replacement. Now that replacement arrived yesterday and when checking to see if that chuck wobbles as well I was once again disappointed. While the chuck on the replacement drill doesn’t wobble as much as the first one did, it is still noticeable. I have an old cheesy 7.2 V drill that barely keeps a charge anymore that was purchased for a fraction of the price of this drill, however, at least that drill has a chuck that doesn’t wobble. For a high-end drill from a well-known company this is incredibly disappointing, and I am considering sending this one back as well in the hopes that the third time’s a charm.
Chuck Wobble Problems
Both the chuck on the drill and the 1/4″ Impact have quite a bit of wobble. I’ve tried these with several different bits and have tried rechucking them multiple times but still there is significant amounts of wobble. I’ve got an older NiCad cordless Dewalt drill that doesn’t have a fraction of the wobble that this set does. This kit is too expensive for what you get.
Great drill and driver set
Great combination set. The driver is lightweight and easy to control. Drill has plenty of juice. Hammer drill function is sufficient for light drilling into granite. Not a true hammer drill but plenty capable for homeowner use. The small batteries that come with it seem to hold a charge indefinitely with light use.
GET THIS SET!!!!
Just when you think DeWalt has nailed it with cordless power tools, they release a new version that’s even better. Hammer drill is insanely powerful and I LOVE the power adjustment on the impact driver. 20v battery has not failed me yet!
I have a makita impact and this Dewalt impact is FAR better. I really like the hammer drill as well. The light on it is very convenient. The only deduction I gave it was for the soft case which does not keep things very organized.
I have been using them now for 3 weeks and love them.
Is as advertised. I have been using them now for 3 weeks and love them.
impact is fast! way faster then the latest brushless …
impact is fast! way faster then the latest brushless version. impact is alot smaller too. impressed i own all the 20v series tools so they never let me down.
I bought this for my husband as a gift. He is VERY satisfied with it!! It exceeds his expectations.
Heavy-duty with long battery life. These tools are excellent in every way.
