DEWALT DCD785C2 20-Volt Max Li-Ion Compact 1.5 Ah Hammer Drill/Driver Kit

DEWALT’S DCD785C2 20-volt max lithium-ion compact 1.5 Ah hammer drill/driver kit comes equipped with advanced technology and innovative features that make it ideal for commercial and residential builders, remodelers, carpenters, woodworkers, electricians, and plumbers. Its extreme durability, performance, and comfort allow users to match the tool to the task at hand, increasing its flexibility for a variety of applications regardless of speed, torque, or power.

What''s in the Box

  • (1) DCD785 hammer drill/driver
  • (2) 20V MAX 1.5 Ah lithium-ion batteries
  • (1) 30-minute fast charger
  • (1) Belt hook
  • (1) On-board bit holder
  • (1) Hard plastic storage and carrying case

Strength and Speed

The hammer drill’s high-power, high-efficiency motor delivers 350 unit watts out of maximum power for superior performance in light and medium drilling applications. A 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides superior bit-gripping strength—reducing slippage during high-torque applications—thus providing longer tool life. The hammer drill/driver’s two-speed (0-600 RPM and 0-2,000 RPM) transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the job at hand and is up to 30 percent faster than current hammer drill/drivers on the market.

Comfort and Convenience

The compact hammer drill’s design incorporates a slim handle with contoured grip that extends user comfort during long jobs, and DEWALT’s engineering and design team adjusted the product footprint and weight allocation for ideal balance and a lightweight feel, making the 3.5-pound tool easy to maneuver in tight areas. The bright built-in LED work light above the trigger has a 20-second delay that improves visibility in dimly lit spaces.

20V MAX Battery Platform

DEWALT-designed electronics have been built into the DCD785C2’s switch to provide maximum life for the tool and battery by helping to protect them from overheating, overloading, and deep discharge during use. The 20-volt’s lithium-ion batteries provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18-volt lithium-ion battery technology. The included charger has dual voltage capabilities, and it is compatible with both 12-volt max and 20-volt max DEWALT lithium-ion batteries; the DCD785C2 is also compatible with the 3.0 Ah lithium-ion batters that are available as replacement packs or come with the premium tools.

Made in the USA

In a commitment to build America, DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of high-quality professional power tools, is proud to expand its product offerings made in the USA using global materials to include more than 600 different cordless power tools, hand tools and accessories. DEWALT began production of its American-built cordless power tools in its 75,000-square-foot Charlotte Manufacturing Operations facility in early October of 2013, using global materials. Those same tools built prior to the opening of the factory were manufactured internationally and imported.

DEWALT cannot guarantee the tool you receive to be made in the USA, some retailers may have items that were built prior to October 2013. Only tools manufactured after October 2013 are made in the USA with global materials.

I got this drill with the highest of expectations; after reading and watching numerous reviews I decided to take the plunge and buy this highly rated product. I can't say the experience was all bad, but I can't say it was all perfect either. You get the following in the box: 1 drill of course, 2 batteries, 1 charger (stand alone), 1 sad intructions booklet (neatly folded though), all in a very nice hard case, with room to spare.

Before I go on, you should know that I considered buying Bosch, Makita and Milwaukee, but ended up with Dewalt, again, high reviews. Anyway, as soon as I opened the box, wow, this is one sexy looking beast, aesthetically, the drill is eye pleasing, well designed, and slick, something about that yellow and black...continuing, the drill is light, but still fills your hand with confidence, it's not as heavy as the 985, but it's not too light either, it's just well balanced. I like the batteries, I couldn't believe how thin these things are and the power they pumped into the drill; it is an acomplishment by Dewalt. Charging was a breeze, simply plug the charger, place the battery on it, light flashes read, goes off, you're ready to drill/drive.

The drill has a belt hook, which can be swaped to have on either the left or right side; it also has a drill-bit holder which I didn't really use, but I'm sure will be useful to others.

Two speeds, 13 drive settings plus one for drilling and one for hammer drill; keyless chuck, what more can you ask. Some will find the 985 better suited to their needs (3 speeds), I personally liked the convenience of having "less" to learn and more to drill.

Now, performance...wholy crap this little dude has some cojones!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me preface this by saying, I'm a girl. I had a different 9.6 volt drill that I had been using for the past few years and it did pretty much everything I needed (some things easier than others) until the squirrel decided to move into my dryer vent and I needed to put up a cover on my brick house. Needless to say, my little drill couldn't begin to drill into the brick. So, when I saw this, I decided to give it a try.

The first thing I noticed were the heavy duty latches on the case and I thought, "Wow, this looks like a heavy duty 'man drill' case." I was thrilled when I took the drill out to find that it wasn't heavy at all and the battery packs, being lithium ion, were much smaller than my current drill's battery pack. Overall, this drill weighs about the same or a little less than my less powerful drill and is easily light enough for a 5'4" girl to use. I read the directions (which were clear and about as simple as possible), put the battery in, and pulled the trigger. HOLY COW! I quickly sat it down thinking maybe this was too much drill for me!

A few days later, I decided it was time to replace the 2X4 in my fence that had insect damage and to try out my new drill. I was screwing 4" screws through a 2x4 into a 4x4 without any kind of pre-drilling and they were going in like the wood was butter. The drill had so much power, but even with all the power, wasn't stripping the screws out. Once my fence was finished, I realized I was in love with "The Man Drill" as it is now known. There is no way my old drill could have handled those long screws without a battle.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is one hardcore cordless drill. The set comes in a nice, impact (probably site) resistant case, which contains the drill, two batteries, and the charger. I was able to charge each battery, new out of the box, in less than 30 minutes each. That alone sold me on this driver, it only got better when I used it.

Holy crap!! The torque on this little guy is unreal. It honestly sounds like a pneumatic drill. I have a Dewalt corded drill and that thing is like a baby's toy compared to this powerhouse. First, the DCD785C2 has 2 gears, high and low, and settings for: drilling, hammerdrilling, and torque settings for fastening applications (screws, etc.). On top of that, there's a sweet little LED light beneath the chuck that shines in the general area you're using the drill. It's a nice touch, even if you don't do a lot of drilling in the late night hours with all the lights off. Seriously though, in a dimly lit room or in a situation where you're using the drill to do work with little light (think installing a ceiling fan in a light receptacle or working under a cabinet) that LED starts to make a lot more sense. There's also a bit holder and a belt clip attached to the drill.

I hooked the first battery up and started playing with the drill. The first time I used it, I freaked a little bit because it made a high pitched noise and when I let go of the trigger the clutch brake kicked in, creating a loud popping/clicking noise. Then I started trying different screwdriver bits and drill bits. I'm sure I looked like a crazed lunatic, running around the house looking for things to loosen and then re-tighten. I was like a kid in a candy store and I was grinning just like one too.
