The two batteries that come with this kit are great. I've been able to go a full day without swapping. The only time I need to swap more often is if I'm using a 1" wood drill bit going through very dry fir beams/joists. I've been able to use an 18" long 1" wood drill bit without so much as a slowdown. Very impressive for a drill this size. It's my general use drill that I use for pretty much anything.
It has treated me well for household jobs and carpentry jobs around the house, but it has its limits. Example: I wanted to get rid of a stump in the yard and the directions for the "stump out" required drilling 10" deep by 1/2" wide holes. The drill could not handle it. The motor started smoking. To be fair I knew this was asking a lot.
The reason I still give it 5 starts is that it finished the job with a lot of coaxing and still works despite melting something internally. Solid drill but if you want to do some heavy drilling then upgrade to the XRP model.
This drill does not have a LED work light which is standard on all drills made in the past few years. Weight is about average at 5.2 Lbs. with battery. All-in-all for 89 bucks this is still a good deal especially for the home owner market. If you think about it, the batteries alone are worth $89...so in a sense, you're getting the drill, charger and case for free.
1. CHEAPLY MADE: This drill/driver's molded-plastic body feels much less durable than the DeWalt tools I've had for several years. The same goes for the charger, which I'm afraid to store it in the same case as the drill and batteries lest the slightest knock bust it to smithereens.
2. PITIFUL BATTERIES: The batteries are NiCd, which I prefer to lithium ion. While lithium ion has a greater storage capacity than NiCds, I prefer NiCds because they have a longer lifespan. The downside to these NiCds is that they're very small, and therefore have that much less power-storing capacity.
3. NOT MADE IN USA: The box I received states that it was manufactured in any of a number of places, including Mexico, China, South Korea and Malaysia, among others.
Update: February 24, 2014 Not a bad drill other than the fact that the clutch slips more often than expected given the previous model NEVER did on over 12 years. This means you are drilling or screwing something and the bit does not turn at all and the drill makes high pitched squeal. Also miss having the driver bits attach to the drill body. Dewalts quality control, design or choice for manufacturing is slipping as well. I'll contact Dewalt for a remedy and return with posting of that exchange.
Update: February 24, 2014 After contacting Dewalt the contact online form does not allow the request to complete for support through posting the problems to continue with the submission to Dewalt. When you go back on the web site, it constantly checks a box to get promotions and emailing for them to sell more stuff. Don't know how to get support if they don't want to hear about the problems with their products. No one likes to get bad news about what you make but how do you know what to improve?
Update: Jan 9, 2015 All the previous complaints still stand with a new one regarding the batteries. The original thick battery pack was so much better than these thinner packs that DO NOT hold a charge very long and peter out way to soon. Junk batteries if you only knew what the better battery does. It explains why they offer 2 batteries in this kit.
Update: March 30, 2015 A new undesirable problem adding to all the previous.Read more ›
