Nice upgrade from my old NiCad Dewalt drill,
This review is from: DEWALT DCD775KL 1/2-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Compact Lithium-Ion Hammer-Drill Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)
I had a 18V Dewalt XRP Nicad drill and it was getting a bit old. I had been using it less and less since I sold my house (thank you housing crash!) and move into a rental. Each time I took it out to do the mostly minor projects that I do now, it seemed to be just getting bigger and heavier each time. So I finally pulled the trigger and went with the Lithium battery style and opted for this one as it has a smaller body then my last Dewalt. I'm happy with the change. This one gets it done just was well and it is lighter and easier to hold!!! The clutch seems easier to change then my old one and it is nice to see that it still has a metal chuck! The little LED light comes in handy, even more so then I originally thought. When I first started to see these little lights show up on drills as I would look at drills as I would walk through the tools sections at the box stores, I just thought they were gimmicks added to the drills so it would look like something "new." But, as it turns out, it actually does serve a purpose. The other nice improvement is the lithium battery, if you have not charged it in a while and you pick up the drill, it is ready to go. It does not lose a charge when it sits idle like my old Dewalt Nicad did! Nice!!
