Summary: I was a girl raised to use tools, so I was anxious to try this hammerdrill/drill/driver when Amazon Vine made it available. It comes in a plastic case that everything fits into quite well. Other than the drill with battery there is a side handle, second battery and the charger . There are no drill bits so you have to furnish your own. It came with a charge so I took it out and started using it immediately.
Summary: I recently purchased this drill as a replacement for a Milwaukee. As always, Amazon's shipping was very quick and arrived in perfect shape. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: PROS: This drill's power is stout. Nothing that I have attempted so far has been able to slow it down. The trigger is sensitive enough to manipulate for fine screw insertion. The light is useful and stays on for a couple of seconds after the trigger is released. It is really useful in shaded or darkened areas.
Summary: Received drill in good condition, everything advertised was in the package. After taking it on the job, I discovered that one of the triple jaws was worn/broken. This can cause a centering problem with larger bits but no so much with the smaller, so it's not a major issue for me. It would have been nice to know that this "refurbished" drill still had a problem, though.
Summary: Great power out of this drill!! 3 speed metal geared transmission works flawlessly. Especially lightweight for a hammer drill and lithium batteries have good life. LED light is okay for locating target in low light areas but chuck casts a shadow when up close and makes it difficult to see. No bit holder on unit but available as aftermarket add-on. Handle clips on very easily and takes literally 3 seconds to attach.
Summary: Enough torque to scare an AMG Mercedes and the battery life is terrific. Feels bullet-proof (the way I'd expect a DeWalt product to feel) and the trigger is very easily modulated. Pair it with some titanium drill bits and never worry about abusing it.
Summary: The DeWALT DCD985L2 is a powerful tool.I can switch between hammer/drill mode with an ease and the Lithium battery takes nearly one hour to fully charged and can worked for more than 6 hours with it.
