Summary: Why did you buy this product? he brand DeWalt a good reputation, I trust this manufacturer. What do you like and dislike about the product? I liked the build quality and good complectation. How does this product compare others? This product is an ideal combination of price and quality competition is not.
Summary: What a great hammer / drill. It has some serious torque. I have the big dog - 32 volt version and I find myself using the DCD970 more often. Well balanced and a nice drill and a pleasure to work with on the job site.

Summary: This is my second Dewalt drill. The first one was not li-ion. It was definitely a mild upgrade since my other one is still fantastic anyway. This drill excells in every aspect a drill needs to. I will never be without a Dewalt drill or tool again! Its worth every penny and then some!
Excerpt: Bought an XRP 8 years ago and the batteries for it were showing signs of wearing out. Started looking for new batteries for it. I soon discovered that I could buy this drill with two Li ion batteries for a few more bucks, and the new batteries fit the old drill too.
Summary: This is the best 18volt rechargable drill or hammer drill I've ever purchased, DeWalt is the best hands down. It is very dependable and easy to operated. It is compatable with two different batteries, which makes it easier to use.
