DEWALT DCD985B 20-Volt MAX Lithium Ion 1/2-Inch Hammer Drill/Drill Driver

DEWALT’s DCD985B 20-volt max lithium-ion 3.0 Ah premium hammer drill/driver bare tool comes equipped with patented 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) DCD985 hammer drill/driver
  • Operating instructions; battery and charger sold separately

Power

DEWALT-designed electronics have been built into the DCD985B’s switch to provide maximum life for the tools and batteries 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. Plus, the hammer drill’s high-power, high-efficiency motor delivers 535 unit watts out of maximum power for superior performance in all drilling and fastening applications.

Speed

The hammer drill’s patented three-speed (0-600 RPM; 0-1,250 RPM; and 0-2,000 RPM), all-metal transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the job at hand and provides a significant advantage for applications that cannot be done at high speed because of torque requirements. While other drills may have to be set to the slowest speed, the DEWALT 20-volt max lithium-ion premium 3.0 Ah hammer drill has a middle speed setting that is more than twice as fast for tasks like drilling larger ship auger bits.

Durability

A heavy-duty 1/2-inch metal ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides superior bit-gripping strength—reducing slippage during high-torque applications—thus providing longer tool life. And the all-metal gear housing meets the demand for extreme toughness.

Convenience

The bright built-in LED work light above the trigger has a 20-second delay that improves visibility in dimly lit spaces.

Comfort

The premium hammer drill’s design incorporates a slim handle 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.

Built 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 built 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 built in the USA, some retailers may have items that were built prior to October 2013. Only tools manufactured after October 2013 are built in the USA with global materials.

This drill is a massive step up from my old 18v dewalt drill. It has three modes - hammer drill, drill, and driver. In hammer drill mode, it will drill through 3" of brick in 4 seconds. I've never used a portable tool like it. The mechanical aspects of it are a bit intense - when you first pull the trigger, you can see the blue sparks inside the drill as 20v of power kicks in. The clutch makes a rather loud clunk when it engages - but after a few uses it settles down. Absolutely a powerful professional tool.

This thing has some serious power. The 3 modes for drilling all come in handy, the hammer drill, screwing, and hole drilling modes. 3 speeds. Theres really not much bad I can say about it. Besides its got so much power it'll probably twist your wrist pretty good and possibly cut your finger open if your not careful. But be careful with this thing!

Works very well as expected, but I think it would have been better to buy the new brushless version for the less weight, smaller size, and better tool and battery longevity.

I owned a number of cordless power tools, and this and its mates really deliver as promised. I bought this driver and the impact driver as a set. It's nice to be able to use one for pilot hole drilling, and the other for screwing in the hardware. Then I bought the circular saw and sawzall (reciprocating saw). I'm going to get the grinder next.

This tool and its companions are really contractor-quality, with long-lasting batteries. Just be careful not to cut your arm off.

One word of caution when buying batteries for these tools: There are at least 3 different batteries (1.5 amp, 3.0 amp, and 4.0 amp) that I think will fit these tools. I have been cautioned against 1.5 amp, as they don't last as long nor do they offer the working power that the 3.0 and 4.0 batteries do.

This is the nicest cordless drill I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot of them. Having used this drill for almost a year on many jobs, here are five things I think you should know before buying one:

1. It has a big opening, so will hold large bits of various kinds.

2. Not all cordless drills are alike mainly because of battery power and life. This one has a long battery life with the 20-volt battery. I'd say you should never go below 20volts, or you'll just end up having to recharge your batteries all the time.

3. The best thing about this drill is that you can flip it into hammer mode and take care of TapCon drilling into concrete. Seriously: what drill can do that? I've always needed a dedicated hammer drill before owning this drill. This thing is great for woodworking, but I especially appreciate it when I'm attaching wood to concrete and need to drive some holes with the hammer drill.

4. The drill has all the necessary speed and types-of-work settings you've come to expect in drills. Fast, slow, whatever you need, this drill has it.

5. This version of the drill comes with the belt clip, but some versions don't. If you need the belt clip, you can pick it up separately for about #10.

Note: The impact driver from Dewalt is a nice complement to this drill, if you like the action of an impact driver for driving deck screws and the like. I now have both and find they make a nice set with interchangeable 20v batteries.

Drill works great! Started using it to drill a hole thru a cinder block wall for a sink drain. Ran pretty much continuously in hammer drill setting for about 30 minutes until I finishes drilling a group of small holes through 8-inch cinder block in order to tap a hole for a 1 1/2 inch pipe. Still had plenty of battery power.

Tool met my expectations. I have yet to be disappointed by Dewalt. I've already used the hammer tool to mount peg boards into my basement (foundation concrete), and to drill through thick masonry to run cable for outdoor security cameras. Just make sure you get what you need right away for drill bits.
