An excellent, even superior performer for the money I spent on it!

Summary: The use of cordless tools commercially in the trades for every type of construction from carpentry to plumbing and as an electrician, and as an industrial tradesman too, has left me with formidable experience in their use, and in determining their suitability for particular tasks. I have used pretty much every manufacturers' products and several have stood out, and a couple are simply must haves.
Summary: VERY POWERFULL DRILL and Lightweight nice to carry around the shop. I was looking for a replacement for my 18v Makita and found this great deal and took it right away. As soon I tested it performs over my expectations.
so light easy control even with the power never ending.

Summary: Fast...what more could a chix ask 4...love it. And power too! II have not yet charged it and has not even slowed on the power...eating dinner I decided to give it a 15 minute charge on 1 of the batteries just in case I was running low on the power and or torque from this drill. Never even noticed a down on battery.
Reversing button won't push in without excessive force

Summary: I'm a new DeWalt user ... having graduated myself from Harbor Freight and cheap consumer brands. I just used my new DCD780 to drill and tap some holes in the edge of my Craftsman table saw table to keep the rip fence guide from falling out of the mounting slots due to the draft (taper) needed to get the table out of the casting mold.
Summary: Had a Bosch and liked it but the batteries eventually went bad. Bought this 20 volt Dewalt and am very impressed. Drove 300 1 3/4 in floor screws on a single battery charge! This drill would have driven the screw heads completely through 3/4 in plywood! Lots of power and torque but light and compact. Very pleasant to operate. Great tool . Would recommend to anyone.
