Summary: Buyers beware! The picture of this item shows 2 XRP batteries are included. This item DOES NOT come with XRP batteries - they are the old, standard batteries. If you don't mind the old batteries (40% less power/time), then order this drill.
Summary: I have many Dewalt tools including several cordless drills and saws. Dewalt has always been a quality name and provides an excellent battery in the 18 Volt series. The right angle drill pictured shows the 18 volt XRP batteries. I ordered this item on two different occasions.
Summary: For years I have struggled to get my full-size cordless drill into tight spots. I have tried everything from flexible-shaft-bit-holders to crazy angles when I drill. Finally a solution -- and one that works interchangeably with my other 18 volt tools.
Summary: I recieved my new DW960k heavy duty cordless drill driver 20 Nov. 03. The next day, FRI. 21 Nov. I took it to work to try it.I put a newer fully charged battery in the tool, there was an imediate bright spark within the drill and it began smoking heavily.
Summary: A previous review complained about DeWalt customer service phone number not answering. I just called them at that number and they answered immediately. I got my support specialist and my problem is solved. Try again.
Summary: First the issues... I bought this drill kit about two month's ago and so far it has performed very well on the job. I was somewhat concerned to find that even with the fairly high price tag the drill and batteries are both being made completely in Mexico.
