if you have 110 power and need bigger holes in steel this will get after it
6 June 2013
Summary: Dewalt said this motor had more power than the rest and they were not kidding this unit has way more twist than the Milwaukee it replaced and the keyless chuck is a big bonus it feels to light to have as much power as it has going to try more dewalt tools again they are heading back in the right direction
Summary: I have used this drill with 1/8" standard and 1/2" wood drill bits without a problem. I have used it with a liquid mixer. 1/2" drill bits will not be a problem. It has plenty of power. the variable-speed trigger is touchy. For mixing with little resistance, I usually had to cycle on and off to keep the speed slow but sometimes I would reach a suitable continuous slow speed. For drilling the speed adjustment was fine.
Pros: Easy To Use, Ergonomic Design, No Bit Slippage, Powerful
Summary: I have not used it a lot yet, but the couple of times I have it works nicely. I have used it ro drill a couple of holes and with a metal shear attachment. So far it has performed to my expectations.
Summary: No more chuck! I love chuckless drills. Sometimes I have to turn it quite a bit to get it to tighten or loosen, but it works great. I bought this from ebay used, but it was in near perfect condition. Normally I don't buy Dewalt, but they do make good products. This was the only handheld 10Amp drill that I could find that was chuckless.
Summary: The Dewalt drill is very nice and very strong. It does not come with a case, unfortunately. It appears to be very well made, in line with the other Dewalt products I have. All of which are much nicer to work with than the cheaper made tools which I used to have.
Summary: I was looking on line for a 3/4" drill like I had years ago. I found one but it was in mid $500 range. I have 2 other 6 amp 1/2" drills but they lacked the power to work with 8" and 12" thick timbers. One new Craftsman burntout a second old Craftsman the switch wire came loose. A third old Black & Decker ( 3.0 Amps) just didn't have the power. The Dewalt DWD215G cut the drilling time in half or more. No more stalling and pulling the bit back out I was BLOWN AWAY.
Summary: I have a duty weapon, a back up gun, a hunting rifle, a tactical shotgun, a shotgun for duck hunting, a target pistol, a .22 for varmint, a 6 inch stainless .357 revolver for wearing on the boat, a .44 I wear for boar hunting, a slim Walther PPK .380 with my dinner jacket when I'm feeling like James Bond, a snub nose 5 shot .38 in an ankle holster......and the list goes on. Get this drill. It makes big holes. It drives big bolts. 'nuff said!
