Summary: I should have done more research on this before I bought it, now I see the people complaining about chuck wobble. Those people are generally using regular short drill bits, maybe an auger bit. I have a 30" long drywall mud paddle on my drill, imagine how bad it shakes the buckets and throws water everywhere. At first I figured my paddle was bent so I bought a new paddle. By the time I figured out it was the chuck of course it was used and past the return date.
if you have 110 power and need bigger holes in steel this will get after it

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: Wow...seems like some of the other reviewers are pretty wedded to other brands...not sure why they tried DeWalt. In any case, I've used quite a few drills over the years and currently have three (including this DeWalt 1/2 inch 10 Amp). I've had the drill for 10 months now and have yet to experience any of the calamities described by the most critical reviews here. It's survived a few drops, tough drilling with oversized bits and I can't find a fault worth noting.
Summary: The task of boring holes to euthanize some tree stumps overwhelmed my collection of lesser-powered corded electric drills (including a usually reliable Makita 6.0 amp 5/8" hammer drill). Pleased with my previous purchase of a DeWalt DCD970 cordless which, if I had enough batteries and Popeye's forearms, could also handle this job, I ordered the DWD215G. Plenty of power, durable construction and the adjustable auxiliary handle made quick and safe work of my project.
