If youre tired of practically bench-pressing an 18-volt cordless for simple driving jobs, we think youll love this little powerhouse. At a mere 3.4 pounds, its super compact and light as a feather but still plenty powerful enough for just about any drilling or driving task at hand.
The 926-2 drives deck and drywall screws like a charm with virtually no fatigue, even if youre working at shoulder height and above. Thats particularly good news because you get a lot of mileage out of a charge, and there are two batteries along with a one-hour charger, this drills never out of commission, so neither are you. The speed ranges are perfect for cabinet work, furniture assembly and do-it-yourself projects. Its unmistakably DeWalt quality, with all-metal gears, a 15-position clutch and a heavy-duty keyless chuck. With 200 inch-pounds of torque, youre got half the power of a drill that weighs (and costs) two to three times as much. For the contractor and other professionals, we think this is a great addition to your toolbox, and for the homeowner and do-it-yourselfer, its all the drill you need.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Top customer reviews
I have had several cordless drills including this one, a DeWalt DC727 12V, Makita D6011 12V (the old school Makita cordless stick battery drill) and a Sears 12V ~$80 model (2 speed gearbox, not a super cheap 1 speed).
I like the little DeWalt quite a bit. I like the small size and weight. It makes for a drill that's easy to handle and work with. However, unlike some other small drills, this one still has power. Its 200 in-lb of torque is similar to my Makita's 234 or the Sears's 225. Note that both the other drills are a good bit larger and somewhat heavier. I would also note that my DeWalt DC727 offers up 350 in-lb so it really says the other two drills just aren't up there with more expensive/newer 12V drills.
So what's the point? Well many people assume that battery voltage equates to how much power a drill has. That's just not true. It's more complex that that. Needless to say you can advertise big voltage and still have no power to speak of. Look at some of the cheap Black and Deckers (the maker of DeWalt) for examples of lots of volts but no torque. That is not the case with this drill.
All the parts of this DeWalt have a high quality feel making this a nice tool to use.
So what's the down side?
Well costs to some degree. If you can get this drill or it's newer sibling the DC750 for say $70-80 it's good buy because the competing "home use" drills just aren't any more powerful. Like my Sears drill, they are often higher voltage and larger but no more power. However, once you get to around $100+ the 12V+ models intended for contractors from DeWalt and other brands offer yet more power and in the case of Dewalts own DC727 little increase in size or weight.
Battery life (the start that shines twice as bright...): Remember when I said this 9.6V was just as powerful as many home use type 12V drills like my Sears drill? Well there is a price you pay in battery life. The drill clearly trades battery life for power. My 12V Sears isn't really any more powerful but it lasts a lot longer on one battery. The drill does come with two batteries but you may still use them faster than you charge them. So while this drill will work just as hard as a 12V or even some cheaper 14.4V drills it will run out of juice faster.
The chuck: Others have mentioned the chuck is hard to get tight. I would agree. The two part keyless chucks aren't any fun to work with. My Makita has the same basic chuck design and it's also hard to get really tight. My other two drills have the newer one hand chucks that work really well. Happily, this drill's replacement, the DeWalt DC750, has the improved chuck.
In the end I really like this drill but I would recommend the DC750 simply for the new one handed chuck design. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this drill for medium duty jobs so long as the limited battery life isn't an issue.
