Summary: I do not own this too yet. I have been looking into purchasing a DW124. I have given it 3 stars to be average and because of the confusion the manufacturer has caused. This tool may well be deserving 4 or 5 stars, however. The tool itself is Dewalt's model no. DW124. However, you will see a model number DW124K on occasion which means it is the "kit" version that includes a case.
Summary: I bought this drill to use in my work. I works great. It has a good reputation in the trades too. I have spoken with plumbers who use it and they like it a lot. It is a USA made tool and is built to last. I wish all my tools were made this well. I got this drill at Tool-up with free shipping. They are in CT. It was 299 and I love it.
Summary: I use alot of tool and seem to like the Dewalt products the best as far as performance and wear and tear. If I have a choice between Dewalt and another product, my choice is always dewalt! Great quality product at an affordable price.
Summary: I am a plumbing contractor from the north east, I have been plumbing for almost twenty years and for the last ten to twelve years of that my drilling partner has been nothing but the Dewalt 1/2" 8 amp right angle drill. Nothing compares with it. It fits comfortably in my hands and has more speed and power then any other drill out there. I have tryied them all.
Summary: I have always been a Makita guy but have used DeWalt tools on many occasions. I think that the quality of DeWalt has improved a great deal in the past ten years. This drill is powerful and comfortable to use. It also doesn't yank your arm and drive it into the wall, like many other angle drills. The 11Amp motor has plenty of power to drill effortlessly through large beams. I plan on keeping this tool for the remainder of my construction career.
