Excerpt: I am a stairbuilder and drill multiple holes on a daily basis - this drill provideds what a cordless never could - also strong as heck for driving bolts and screws into hardwoods - keyless chuck is a must, metal not plastic, so it will stand up to extreme use - comfortable and durable but could use...
Summary: This is an awesome drill. I have been using mine for many years and it still works like new. I did have to replace the cord however. But if you count the amount of hours I put into it it's amazing that it works at all! I made a video showing all the features I like about this drill.
Summary: I bought the Milwaukee 0302-20 and compared it to this drill. The Milwaukee 0302-20 had a few more features that I liked. They both felt the same as far as ergonomics. Check out the video for the details.
Summary: this is a good drill. I have slowly moved more toward keyless chucks. they are a lot easier to use and i keep you from fuddling with a key or losing it. Very durable. it also comes with a warranty and the trusted dewalt name.
