Designed for Versatility and Durability
As versatile as it is powerful, the DWD210G functions well for both steel and wood applications. When working with a spade or auger bit in wood, it offers a 1-1/2-inch capacity, and it can handle a capacity of 2-9/16 inches when used with a self-feed unit. The drill can also handle a 1/2-inch twist bit when working with steel. When used with a hole saw, the drill offers a 3-5/8-inch capacity in wood and a 2-inch capacity in steel.
Its keyed 1/2-inch chuck grips the bit securely to prevent slippage, and a metal gear housing provides added durability.
Built with Comfortable, Accurate Handling in Mind
Comfortable handling goes a long way toward ensuring accurate results. The DWD210G is built with an ergonomic grip, and its two-finger rubber trigger makes power control easy. A locking, 360-degree, soft-grip side handle gives you hand-position options for improved user comfort and better overall command of the drill. And it weighs an easy-to-manage 4.9 pounds, decreasing user fatigue after extended use.
The DWD210G 1/2-Inch VSR Pistol-Grip Drill comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

I've owned the DW100 3/8" keyed chuck drill for some 13 years, and it's been a workhorse for me. Lots of power for a small drill, and it continues to run like a champ. I don't like keyless chucks as a rule, they're fine for quick and easy jobs, but try drilling into 1/4" steel with one and you'll soon lament losing the chuck key to tighten the pawls down hard enough to hold the bit. I've been wanting to get a 1/2" drill for a long time and last week I found myself surfing the web looking for the Milwaukee that I'd wanted for so long. The new 'Hole Shooter' has got some pretty terrible reviews about how cheap it's made, the trigger is not smooth, it's made in china, bla, bla, bla. I wnet to Lowes to play with one, and found the complaints, mostly, well founded. I used to work with Milwaukee drills and loved them. I don't know why, but the one in the store felt like a cheap piece of crap, honestly. The trigger was sloppy, not smooth draw and I can visualize how jerky it would be when it's running and varying the speed. The whole thing did not impress, at all.
Then I was thinking about my trusty DeWalt 3/8" drill. I knew about the standard 1/2" DeWalt, and almost bought it when I saw the DWD210G with it's big meaty gearbox right out there in front. It's a heavy drill, to be sure, but it felt like it might be the last drill I would ever own. I bought it on the spot at Lowes and have been using it for the last few days and I must say that there are no regrets here.Read more ›
I have a ton of drills, this 10amp dewalt of course, a Bosch SDS hammer drill, milwaukee screw gun, hitachi 9amp, dewalt 7amp, two ridgid spade drills, 18v milwaukee cordless hammer and ratcheting drill, makita 4amp angle drill, which are ALL 5-star drills in my opinion depending on what you're using them for, and then I have some 18v Ryobi's and some old vintage drills which are underpowered, but I like having some beaters I can throw around.
This drill is a keyed chuck. Keyed chuck means you can open and close it by hand, but if you want to really get a good grip on a bit you can crank it with the accessory tool. It's like the difference between putting on a bolt by hand and using a wrench. If you don't want to use the key it's just like a key-less chuck.
The gear housing and chuck are all metal. The body, reversing switch, and trigger are plastic.
1,200 RPM may sound slow to people who are used to seeing VSR's with 2,500 RPM's. I wasn't really worried about this because I have experience with other geared down drivers. Basically it gives you a lot more power per amp. The trigger smoothly transitions between the 0-1,200 range. You can drive a screw or drill just as fast in normal materials and much faster if you drill into thick, hard materials.
This drill is too heavy to use one handed on a vertical surface, that's why there's the handle. So you can't hold a screw with one hand on drywall, and put it in with the other.
I put the biggest drill bit the chuck would take, and burrowed it into oak in a few seconds; without scorching the oak. Drilling through a 55 gallon steel drum was child's play for this drill. Honestly I don't really have anything at this exact moment to really push this drill.Read more ›
It gets better: I took the drill to a local DeWalt factory service location and asked them to evaluate the start up characteristics. They agreed that the start speed was abrupt but were not sure what should be expected. They changed out the switch control-drill operation remained unchanged.
Summary: I'm keeping the drill because my primary need is for mixing grout and mortar where smooth start up is not important. In every other respect the drill seems to be a quality product and has received rave reviews from others. However,if you need more precision startup (unlikely for a heavy duty 1/2" drill) then I would manage your expectations.
Pro: Pretty much all of the reviewers here are correct. This is a LOT of drill. Huge torque -- use both hands. Keeps going and going and will shut itself off if you overpush it. Very tough. very reliable. But it is surprisingly light, about 4.9 lbs. I drilled hundreds of 3/4" spade bit holes in studs for running 10 ga romex. The drill barely got warm (the spade bit got glowing hot and had to resharpen 3 times, LOLs). I have a big stucco project coming up, and I have a funny feeling this will make a perfect mud mixer.
Edit 3.17: We have using this drill almost daily for mixing and massive multiple hole drilling for 4 months. We also like to use it for wire brushing or sanding. the overload circuit on this is a lifesaver. we run this drill for hours on end and until it shuts itself off for 10 mins. then presto, it starts right back up without a hitch. the price on the 210 has increased unfortunately, but it is worth it, bumping our review up to 5 stars.
Edit 3.23: We are buying 5 more of the 210's. it turns out you can buy them used very cheaply, not necessarily on Amazon though (hint hint nudge nudge).
