Reliable Tool

urthwurm, Amazon
13 May 2015
  • Summary: This was a great buy! I use it almost daily and it continues to work as good as it did when I bought it. The power has been impressive. I used it on 4 inch thick steel, 8 inch concrete, and drilled a tunnel through a two-foot stump, without any problems.

  • Summary: If this baby was human it would be one of my dearest friends. I can't imagine life without this drill. I'm an electrician and have,gone thru a few drills, chipping hammers, etc. this DeWalt has redefined the term DURABILITY.

Worked fine 1st time I used it

R. Miller, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Gave 2 stars for price. Worked fine 1st time I used it, 2nd time hammer option wouldn't work and smelled like was getting hot. Guess that's what I get for trying to be cheap and buy refurbished. Don't blame seller, just a lemon I guess.

  • Summary: Excellent drill and power. Great for drilling into stone when using the hammer option. Used the drill for boring 3" holes into pine logs and the drill handled it with ease. Great RPM's for using as a polisher and attaching a wire brush to clean rusted metal.

DONT BUY

Bob Lykins, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Have owned this drill for just over 1 year and now the clutch wont engage. Used very little in the past year. This is pure junk and Dewalt needs to improve its way of building tools if thing go bad this fast.

  • Summary: Great drill, very strong, use it to drill holes in steel without any issues. Side grip is great for holding drill steady, corded so power does not weaken.

Right price, right features

Kindle Customer "Craig S", Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: DeWalt product quality has never disappointed--unlike Makita and some others. The adjustable handle and depth-rod make it easy to hold the drill with both hands, and to gauge the hole depth as drilling progresses. An included carrying case would have boosted the rating to 5 stars.

Broken after only a few uses

Taproot, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: The hammer portion of the drill works well, but this isn't as strong as one should expect from a 1/2" drill. I purchased this for drilling 4" holes through drywall and paneling. It only lasted two holes before it broke (the spindle no longer receives power from the motor).
