Power and Performance

Driven by a 12-volt battery, the DC742KA offers plenty of power for hole drilling and screw driving through virtually any building material. Its variable-speed, two-speed, reversing motor can be operated on low (0-400 RPM) for driving large screws and drilling large holes, or high (0-1,450 RPM) for drilling smaller holes and fasteners. The tool is equipped with a 3/8-inch, keyless, single-sleeve, ratcheting chuck that securely locks down on bits to prevent slippage, even when boring large-diameter holes. And its adjustable slip clutch has 17 settings, which ensures precise, consistent screw driving in various materials--hardwood, softwoods, plastic and metal--without fear of over-driving or stripping the screws. An onboard LED worklight greatly enhances visibility when working in dark, confined spaces.

Warranty

This DEWALT tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase). It's also covered by DEWALT's one-year free service contract, where DEWALT will maintain the tool and replace worn parts caused by normal use--for free.

While I admit that I was a little concerned about the compact design of this drill, I was glad to give it a try in light of Amazon's return policy. However, this drill is not going anywhere. Like many other cordless drill owners I got to that place where purchasing replacement batteries was almost as much as purchasing a new drill with two batteries. I used it to for driving some 3.5" framing screws and drywalled a bathroom, laundry room, and small hallway. It has plenty of power and balances well in the hand. The LED light is also a nice enhancement for dark corners in tight workplaces.

Well balanced and nice weight at 3.8 pounds, it is only 7 ounces heavier than the 9.6V it replaced (probably 10 years old). Work light is useful. Love the chuck. My old 9.6V Dewalt was 'grip strength' and I sometimes didn't crank it enough such that it would open if I reversed and there was tension on the bit in the wood. The new models have a ratchet chuck that is easy to tighten.

The 12V cost little more than 2 new batteries for the 9.6V it replaced and it came with 2 batteries, not a difficult decision to get the 12V. In fact, two 9.6V batteries cost 10% MORE than a new 9.6V drill WITH 2 batteries. Go figure. The Dewalt chargers are 'interchangeable'. Multiple voltages (7.2 to 18V) and the batteries for the 12V have the same 'plug' configuration as the old 9.6V so I have 2 batteries AND two chargers.

This drill has only 1 'holder' for screwdriver bits. Not a big deal, but I did like the "one on either side" bit storage on the 9.6V.

It meets all expectations. Nothing significant will disappoint you with one caveat. There is a small light that comes on when the trigger is slightly depressed. It does not light the tip area of the driver as it should. The chuck casts a shadow exactly where you need the light. I seldom need the light but when I do it isn't there. It may work better if you can use an extension. If the light is important to you it will be your only disappointment.

Iv owned this drill for over 6 years if your looking for a drill that can do all your household needs look no further. I know its not an 18v like everyone raves about. but its light and well balanced. I dropped it many time. Iv drilled thou hardened steel with 3/8 bits and its never failed me yet. Its been a great companion iv used allot of 18v before and this thing is much eraser on the arm. of course more battery swamping but after completing a deck a few swaps is no big deal if your arm is not tired. Other thoughts i have a 14.4 hammer dewalt for larger jobs again that thing and do anything an 18v can do. just has less weight and of course shorter battery life. but again well worth it. lagging an 18v around is just stupidity if you don't need it for the job.

What is going on with DeWalt? I like many, invested in a new drill simply because a new drill comes with two new batteries and case.

I like this this drill; it's a bit lighter and smaller than my old one and I like the LED light. What I don't like is the crummy case. As another reviewer stated, there is no storage for screwdriver & drill bits. I simply put my new unit in the old case with my old drill as a back-up in the case supplied. My batteries work fine.

Strange with complaints of this item from DeWalt - poorly designed case, bad batteries, alleged refurbished units, etc. I guess an email to DeWalt is in order...

Very generic and sloppy fitting case. My previous DeWalt Drill Kit had a case which was molded to
hold each component tightly and securely. This case just has several compartments where things just
rattle around.

Not much to add to previous reviews. Drill has lots of torque, battery holds charge very well. I use as a household tool, its strong enough and tough enough for commercial applications.

I have had a DeWalt drill for some time. I really like the chuck design which makes placing a drill bit or screw driver bit easy and almost a one-handed operation. The stop when power is shut off is a nice touch as well. The rugged good looks and attractive design seem to be just right. This new drill is smaller in size but just as powerful as my last DeWalt drill. My son now has my first drill and I have the new smaller version.
