Summary: Went to the local big store and they did not stock this. Joined Prime and got it two days later and it worked perfectly for what I needed. The battery holds a charge for a long time and I know this will come in handy for a long time.
Summary: The right angle drill is a great tool to have in your quiver,It is a must for installing cabinets and tight quarters. How ever the high speed just striped out drilling counter sink holes. the drill was only used on special ocasions. I replaced it with a power corded model and i am quite pleased.If you need it for little things get one,if you are a pro get one with a power cord.
must have for any furniture/cabinet maker and finish carpenter

Summary: This is the tool that you don't use every day, but you can't do without when needed. This is Dewalt quality, I've had the tool for over 7 or 8 yrs not sure, the only thing I had to replace where the battery.
Summary: I really like this drill and use it all the time on the job. It really can get you out of a jam sometimes. The DW966K now comes with two batteries for the same price as the old kit with only one battery. They are the standard 14.4V battery packs, not the XR extended run-time packs, but this is a good thing because the whole idea behind this drill is to get into the tight places that other drills can't, and having the shorter standard battery sometimes makes the...
Summary: This drill is a great combination of size & power. I use it for all kinds of stuff. Hogging through studs for electrical, pocket drilling in tight spaces, driving screws, etc. The more I use it the more I like it. I considered the 9.6v makita but was concerned that it wouldn't have the staying power to drill lots of holes through studs (this was the case for the non standard 9.6v makita). Also I wanted the slow speed this drill provides.
Summary: We install a lot of kitchens, this pays for its self when putting in a 12" wide or less cabinet, trying to secure the face frames. If you can justify it the budget it is well worth it! Please its not t tool you use lots and lots, so you get two 14.4V batteries that interchange with your other Dewalt tools!
Summary: I love this drill! It was absolutely invaluable for working in the tight angles and narrow spaces I encountered during an extensive kitchen remodel I completed this last summer. I find lots of other uses as an avid woodworker too. Although DeWalt makes an 18-volt version my regular drill/driver has interchangeable power packs for this model. The 14.4-volt batteries last plenty long, have sufficient power for my needs, and recharge quickly.
Summary: I generally like the drill for getting into tight spaces. One draw back is the reversing switch is in a very awkward place. When I'm in a tight space and need to reverse direction on the drill I end up removing the entire drill to activate the reverse switch.
