Summary: It great having this cordless impact drill, to work around the house or in my garage on different handyman projects. I used with my dewalt cordless drill, now I don't have to take out drill bits from my cordless drill anymore & replace different chucks. I can continue working on a project. The light underneath the chuck comes in handy to see hard to see drill holes.
Summary: I have other 18V DeWalt tools and this is a welcome addition to them. I've had the same DeWalt drills for years. They have proven themselves dependable in the workplace. I like the fact that this impact drill is compatible with both NiMH and NiCad batteries, as all my other tools use only NiCad and I have plenty of spares.
Summary: During my 35 years as a cop I worked construction as my moonlighting job. When I retired earlier this year I went full time with the crew so it was time to add some power tools to my kit rather than rely on the communal set. If starting fresh there is no doubt that I would have gone with Ryobi One tools as they guarantee to maintain battery compatibility in future tools unlike all the others who use the time your tools wear out as a "gotcha" and you also have to buy all...
Summary: Good tool - works great for driving screws that will not go in with screwdriver tips. I use 18V in the field and they work well. However, the continued use of Ni-cad batteries by this company is maddening, that's why the 3 stars. These batteries are junk. They do not last and are too expensive. I have probably 10 of these sitting that are unusable.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Grip, Good Safety Features, Powerful
