Summary: I have owned an earlier version of this for years, and while there seems to be a voltage arms race which has left this tool in the dust, it is a superb tool with more than adequate power. Only a professional who uses a drill all day long needs more voltage.
DEWALT DC940KA - Quality Built to Last - Need I Say More?
4 December 2011
Summary: I have had great success with dewalt tools and this 12V drill/driver workhorse is no exception. Have been using this drill/driver for three years now and completely tackled everything I threw at it and then some.
Summary: just every thing about this drill/driver is great. i have used a few and this one just tops the rest. u can't beat the price for this dewalt, and i got the 12-volt because of the power it has to drive the screws in easy, just a great drill
Summary: Bought so I could get replacement batteries...I already owned one Dewalt Drill for a 5 years when the battery finally finally stopped working...I looked for replacements at Lowe's and Home Depot in Austin Texas but none had the rechargable 12-V...they only had the 18-V.
Improved design? Poorer performance. If it aint broke, dont fix it.
