By Brandon Giesinger on June 3, 2009
I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO's(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison
Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the DCD925
1. Much Better balance
2. More power in both low and mid-range(Dewalt says the DC925 has 480 unit watts vs the DCD970's 450, but the DCD970 is more powerful
3. WAY smoother speed selector (moves back and forth, not in an semi-ellipse like the 925)
4. L.E.D light on front
5. Shorter in length
6. Drill/screw/hammerdrill, various clutch settings are no longer on the same ring, clutch now has its own ring.

Cons of the DCD970
1. Due to pressure from a group of so called "tool users" who ONLY seem to care about aesthetics, Dewalt changed the base to the new nano style, which means if you actually use the drill it only has space for one bit on the front and WILL Not hold a screw guide or short nutsetters very well, whereas the old style base could fit a screw guide for TEK screws on one side and a 1/4" and 5/16" short nutsetters for tapcons on the other side.

However, overall the DCD970/950 is a excellent drill and deserves 4.75 stars, if Dewalt would change the base it would be a 5 star item, but that will never happen thanks to people who care more about how a tool looks rather than how well it works.

I cleaned off my old DC925 and put in a fresh battery and the thing works!! Well now I have two, I guess that is what I get for asuming things, oh well I like the DCD970 better anyway.

I must have purchased and worn out a half dozen Dewalt drills over the past decade. Some where great units, others where very cheap quality. They were all 18V. So this time I took the time to research the Dewalt line up and not just grab whatever Home Depot was peddling. I also decided to stick with 18V since I had so many other tools of that series. This has got to be the perfect drill. The drill chuck is all metal, holds super tight and is of a machine tool quality. The transmission is 3 speed and the whole unit just has a very rugged feel. The power is awesome. While not scientific, this thing must have at least 50% more torque and power then my previous drills. I can drive 3.5" deck screws into dry wood using high speed and cut a 4" hole saw into wood using medium speed. I even mixed a 5 gal pale of drywall mud with a beater using the low speed. This thing is almost on par with my 1/2" dewalt corded drill. The other nice thing is that the lithium ion battery seams to hold its power right up to the last second. Then the battery just shuts itself off. This scared me the first time. I was really torquing the drill and I thought I had blown something. But that is just how the battery operates.
The only negative is that the drill is heavier then I have been used to. Of course this is offset by the lighter battery but you might be disappointed if you are looking for a feather weight. It also seams to be a little bit longer then some of my other drills of this style by about 3/4 inch. Getting in between studs seams to be a little tighter then I'm used too. But this drill also includes a hammer feature and it is way shorter then my previous hammer drills.
Over all I'm very happy with this drill and was very impressed with its performance.

As a service department manager at a shop that repairs these, you're better off with a different model. The biggest issue I have is with the chuck. They don't last very long and when they do need replacement they cost over $90! The gear case needs to be completely disassembled and you need a special fixture to grab the shaft just to get the chuck off. I just sent another one off to the scrap pile because of a bad chuck. Buyer beware!

I have owned lots of brands & 3-5 of these style Dewalt hammer drills. This new model seems to have suffered from the cheapening of American products. Previous model changes didn't seem to change that much, a new feature here, a little more plastic there, but this model feels like a let down.

Overall this is still a great drill. Pretty tough & powerful.

The negatives I noticed;
First, the different chuck, it loses it grip on bits/extensions sometimes like none I've used. I haven't discovered a reason or specific use that causes it. It happened more when I used the higher speed settings.
Second, the hammer drill feature doesn't have as much forward motion & therefore hammering power as previous models.
Third, if you shake the drill you can hear the transmission or ? rattling around inside even though it works correctly. (might just be something loose on my drill but it was like that new out of the box).

I just bought this tool from Amazon, but it is older technology from 2009. The batteries are underpowered at only 2.4 amp hours vs. the 4.0 ah of their newer hammer drills like the CDC895/ 995M2. With cordless tools like these, they use significant power and you will burn through two of the 2.4 ah batteries in an hour. Because the recharge time is 1 hour on the 970 vs. the quick charge of the newer tools., you will find yourself buying more backup batteries than the newer tools require. Make sure you don't buy older technology that will not suit your purpose.
