Product Description

The DEWALT DCD790B 20V MAX XR Lithium Ion Brushless Compact Drill/Driver is a bare tool item (battery not included). This drill/driver features a DEWALT brushless motor which delivers up to 57% more run time over brushed. It's compact (7.2" front to back), lightweight design fits into tight areas and the high speed transmission delivers 2-speed settings (0-600/0-2,000 RPM) improving speed and torque control across a range fastening and drilling applications. The ergonomic comfort grip handle provides ideal balance & tool control. A metal 1/2" ratcheting chuck offers superior bit gripping strength. This unit also features a LED light with a 20 second trigger release delay which provides increased visibility in dark or confined spaces, with the LED placement on the tool foot that helps to eliminate chuck shadows. Includes: (1) DCD790 1/2" Drill/Driver, (1) Belt Hook and (1) On-board bit holder.

I bought the regular 20V drill and impact driver kit. They both have plenty of power and are significantly more compact than my 18V Ryobi tools; very important for tight spaces like between joists and in cupboards. I wanted a 2nd driver so that I could have one for drilling pilot holes and the second for the screws. The impact driver doesn't have enough fine trigger control for either of these jobs in my hands. Also, the regular 20V drill LED is in the wrong place and actually creates a shadow where you want to put the bit. This may seem like a minor point, but I really like that the brushless model has correctly aimed the light to the work area. So I bought the brushless, without the batteries, saving a $100. Two batteries is enough for me for home projects. I read some reviews about there not being enough power. To the contrary, there is more than enough power for me. With a sharp spade bit, this drill cuts 3/4 holes through studs like butter. I would recommend this drill to others.

I already have Dewalt 20V tools and needed to add a drill. The chuck on this is very smooth and nice for changing bits. Tightens down easily with out tearing up your hand. Compact head fits into many tight areas. Fairly light weight for a drill. Power has been very good for drilling metal and wood so far. It does come with a belt clip but DOES NOT come with a spare bit holder on the other side of the tool. Some Dewalt tools do come with this and some do not. This one does not. The battery life has been excellent so far. Since I am just a home user I can't really speak to if the brushless is really increasing my run time. I can say it is lasting a lot longer than my Craftsman 19.2V I replaced (Both had about the same amp hour Li-Ion battery capacity). When they say bare tool they mean bare tool this came in a clear plastic bag. I will update this rating if my feelings change or I encounter any failures but so far so good.

I completely love all of my new 20v Max DeWalt tools. I now have the brushless drill, brushless driver, jig saw, recip saw, light and 1/2" impact. The grease gun and circular saw are ordered and on the way as well to round out my assortment. I'm a "heavy duty"
homeowner user who also uses his tools for occasional contracting jobs so I demand good quality out of my products and value for my money.

The brushless drill is a complete dream to use. The chuck is the modern metal ratcheting design that holds all sizes of bits tightly with no issues, the runtime is phenominal. I assembled all of the framing on my 16'x20' pressure treated deck and didn't need to charge the batteries on any of my tools! I used one battery and swapped it between a few tools and after 3 solid days of use it was finally down to 1 bar so I charged it, even though it was still working! Torque is as good or better than the outgoing 18v DeWalt products and the features like speed switch, LED light, belt hook and so on all perform nicely. Weight, look and feel is perfect, no complaints there either.

If you're looking for a great quality product with impressive runtime, torque and features, look no further.

You can feel the power of the drill when you squeeze the trigger and the unit torques in your hand, from the centrifugal force. Great product, well built and much better than the previous drill, I had.

Appreciate the small size, but this unit is built like a tank.

I been using this drill for a week now ,I love it ,the power ,run time and compact size is the best combination you can ever find ,I been using a 4 Amp battery and so far never have to recharge yet ,my primary use for this drill is buffing car paint scratches ,restoring car head lights and some drilling ,it's well balanced for it's size even when using a 4 Amp battery , using this drill felt like driving a compact car with a V8 ingine under the hood . also check out there compact 20 volts half inch impact wrench very useful tool specially if you like working on cars .
