I really wanted to like this drill. I purchased it to replace a piece of junk Skil cordless that was about 5 years old and would barely hold a charge. I am not a contractor but just wanted a quality product for homeowner use that would last a long time. I spent some time researching options online and also talked to several friends in the trades for their recommendations. I decided on the DCD760KL over similar drills from Ridgid, Milwaukee, Makita and Bosch. As usual, Amazon did a great job of getting the product to me very quickly. Unfortunately the first drill I received had a broken chuck sleeve, it appeared to have been broken either during the manufacturing/packing process or during shipping. The broken chuck sleeve allowed me to see just how cheaply made the chuck seemed to be. But I decided to try another one. Amazon's return/replacement process was quick and easy, I had a new drill a couple of days later and returned the broken one with the shipping label provided. The replacement seemed to be fine but during the first use I found out that this drill appears to have a problem with moving from 1st to 2nd gear. It did not move solidly from one to the other and got stuck between gears, making a grinding noise that I assume was stripping the gears. At this point I gave up on the dewalt and went with a Milwaukee 18V lithium ion drill instead and have been very happy with the decision. In hindsight, buying this type of product online might not have been the best idea, but I do appreciate that Amazon was really easy to work with and promptly handed the replacement and eventual refund processes.

Battery went bad within 6 months with fairly moderate use. Will try to claim warrenty for this part. Will update again if warranty claim does not work

Extremely powerful and the batteries last a good long time, but one of the bearings associated with the chuck is going out after only 3-4 hours of use over the past 6 months. Disappointing. I thought DeWalt was a better brand than that.

Locked up the second time I used it. Took it to a factory service center two weeks ago and have not heard anything.

I have everything that Dewalt makes and I have to say this drill is weak. It is fine for someone that does not work with hard woods, ok for your little projects. But for wood working and trying to put some muscle into the draw; it is not the tool. the bigger 18 are better for what I do, for a small light weight tool it is great, but for working the way we do in building our own furniture it is lacking

I got it despite FedEx taking its usual round about route (PA, OH, WV and sometimes KY). The switch between high and low speeds would not work. Amazon doing a good job as usual getting a replacement to me.

Update: The second one also will not work properly (in the same manner). Before I return it again, I will take it to factory service to see what they say.

Came w/ 2 batteries - one failed after 6 months of very light use - (3 recharges). Bought Dewalt for the quality - Big mistake!

Not that this isn't a good drill but you can get the 20 volt cordless at Lowes for $129.00 or less when it is on sale. Just sayin.
