Summary: This has to be the best drill I've ever used. It's worth every penny. The speed control via the trigger is fluid and just the right sensitivity, and this thing has power when you need it, but it will drive at a very low speed while maintaining a high force, so whether you're putting a screw through hard or soft wood or a knot, the same trigger position will move it at the same rate.
Summary: This is an excellent cordless drill. The best part for me is how long the battery lasts. Had a previous Hitachi with a battery that was worthless. This drill motor rocks, plus it handles 1/2 in. shank drills with no problem.
Summary: I bought this to attach shutters on my house (both brick and stucco). After I ordered it, friends told me that this drill would not do the job, I needed either a hammer drill or a rotary hammer in order to drill through the mortar on the brick front. Long story short, this drill (with good tungsten drill bits) went through the mortar joints and stucco siding without a problem.
Summary: I've owned this drill for over a year now. I purchased the combo with the impact driver. Pretty much everything has been said in the helpful reviews. Nice powerful tools with long running 1.5ah batteries. It's a nice kit. The reason I'll give this drill 2 stars and bother writing a review at all is because of the chuck wobble seen in just about every copy of this drill. The longer I own the drill the more it bothers me. This isn't a contractors drill.
Summary: I received this drill via the Amazon Vine reviewer program, which frankly surprised me as I am not much of a DIYer. Being female and having a husband who's not into projects, I had to seek out a way to test drive the Dewalt DCD780C2 20V before reviewing it. My Test: Dismantling a 10 year old wooden playset. I had tried to do it before with manual tools, but quickly gave up as it was just too daunting.
Summary: I loved almost every aspect about this drill (DCD780C2), but I ended up returning it. I got fed up with the ever decreasing battery life of my ancient but solid Makita. Both batteries exhausted doing 20 1/8" drill hits through 1/8" angle aluminum. Not much more $$ to buy a new drill than replace batteries, so that's what I tried. This Dewalt is a stellar drill in most respects.
Summary: +++ THE PROS +++ [+ UTILIZES LI-ION TECH]: Li-Ion offers more power in a smaller/lighter package, vs. NiCad and NiMH. [+ LED GUIDE LIGHT]: Positioned above the trigger. Turns on when you pull the trigger and auto-off after 20-seconds of non-use [+ 2-SPEED MOTOR]: High speed (up to 2,000rpm) for drilling, Low/Variable speed (up to 600rpm) with clutch for driving [+ LIGHT WEIGHT]: The 1.5A batteries weigh 12oz each.
Summary: My old Makita drill finally had both batteries die. I was simply going to buy a couple of new batteries until I saw the price, two new batteries were very close to the price of a new drill. If I was going to buy a new drill, I decided it would have Li-Ion batteries because my experience with them in general is vastly superior to NiCad batteries.
Summary: This is an excellent compact drill. It's lightweight, a little less than 3-1/2 pounds. The ergonomics are excellent, it feels great in your hand. It's easy to use overhead, or with your arm extended. It has two speeds, 0-600 rpm and 0-2000 rpm. The 2000 max rpm is fast for a cordless drill. 2000 rpm is great for drilling small holes, soft woods, or plastics. The faster the speed you can run, the faster you can drill the hole.
