As a matter of full disclosure, I am using this drill as a DIY homeowner on minor projects. This drill was my upgrade into the world of pro-grade power tools from a cheapo 14.4V Black & Decker drill. I upgraded primarily because I was frustrated by having to drill pilot holes for lag screws all the time due to the lack of power. Furthermore, my former so-called variable speed drill only had two speeds, namely 400 or 800 rpm, nothing in between so I was constantly stripping screw heads. After doing some serious research into Makita, Milwaukee, Hitachi, and Dewalt, I chose Dewalt. Why? Because of the power and construction of the tool. Dewalt uses its own measurement of torque (Unit Watts Out) whereas most other companies list max torque in ft-lbs. In my opinion, I best equate UWO to the amplifier rating in audio receivers. In receivers, many companies list their amplifier rating with only one channel driven. Rarely do companies list amplifier rating with all channels driven. UWO, to me, is Dewalt's real world sustained torque rating like all channels driven in an amplifier. So for this drill, although Dewalt lists it at 410 UWO, I think this probably equates to nearly peak torque of at least 450 ft lbs if not more. Also, I really liked the fact that Dewalt uses all-metal gears and it has solid magnet construction in its motor.

For whatever reason, although most companies have wholeheartedly embraced the Lion technology, Dewalt has chose to slowly move into it and, thus, still has a large portion of tools with NiCd batteries. I really debated about the whole NiCd v Lion thing. But really, for my purposes, I doubt I will be using the drill so much that I will use up 2 batteries. I really think having a back-up battery negates the charge time issue.

I'm a contractor and our company specializes in erecting condos so we are more than familiar with our power tools. When I first started my job I invested in this DeWalt drill since EVERYONE has one. After using it for a while I feel that it is not all that it is hopped up to be, the battery life sucks and I had to replace the battery after a couple months because it stopped holding its charge. After trying out others I would recommend Makita for the price and performance, also do stay away from Ryobi that brand of power tools is a joke (I would get it for my learning teen but not for professional use).

I bought one of these about 6 months ago, used it and gave away to my brother in-law.
A week ago I bought a Ridgid R86007N which is identical to the DeWalt DC720KA except here is where the Rigid beats the DeWalt in all categories.
(1) Tested driving large screws into 2x4's The Rigid was able to sink the screw deeper with less effort.
(2) The Rigid is lighter by 1 lb. Less Hand fatigue.
(3) The Ridgid is more compact and smaller with more power.
(3) The Rigid uses a 18V Lithium-Ion Battery instead of a 18V Ni-Cad Battery. There no comparison between the Lithium-Ion which leaves a Ni-Cad in the dust. It has more power, lasts longer and takes shorter time to charge.
(4) The DeWalt has 3 or 5 year warranty. The Ridgid has a life-time Warranty.
For a manufacture to give a Life-time warranty speaks for itself in the confidence of quality in the product.
(5) There other minor advantages, but the con is, the Ridgid doesn't come with a Case. So I bought 2ea Husky cases for $9.98 a pair, while on sale.

Both the DeWalt and the Ridgid were on Sale for $99.00 ea. at Home Depot (2010 after Black Friday sale). I don't know how long the sale will last. Even though I have a workshop full of both DeWalt & Ridgid tools I feel one should give credit when credit is due.

Reading through the reviews that have been posted so far concerning this product it is quite obvious that a lot of people know a heck of a lot more about cordless power tools in general and these DeWalt cordless power drills in particular than I do. Unlike many of the reviewers I am not a professional builder or fixer-upper guy nor do I have anything near their knowledge base. No, I am one of those people who simply mess around with stuff. I build bird houses, perform repairs on my barns, sheds and chicken house, and makes pathetic attempts to repair "stuff" in our home - much to my wife's chagrin and anxiety attacks when I attempt such. Really folks, when it comes to stuff like this I am truly pathetic.

I had an old Black and Decker drill that I have been using for years that was sort of weak and getting weaker, and it recently gave a final groan; gave up the ghost and went where ever old broken tools go. My son, who does do construction work felt sorry for me and gave me this drill; a drill he had been using rather heavily for about 8 months. For that I am grateful.

My needs are simple when it comes to a tool like this. I want one that actually works. I want one that is very low maintenance. I want one that a complete idiot can use with very little training. I want one that light and maneuverable enough to use without going through extensive weight training and yoga classes in order to use it. I am happy to say that this drill fits all of those needs and more.

First, I have little to no problems finding the bits and various accessories needed for various jobs. I can find and pick these accessories out without having a long and humiliating conversation with some 18 year old condescending sales person.
