Summary: After ordering the 36 volt SDS Drill DC233KL, I started to read all the horror stories associated with the Batteries. when my kit arrived, like so many others it came with a dead battery that would not charge. So off to the local DeWalt repair center to exchange the battery.
Summary: I received the DEWALT DC233KL 36-Volt Lithium Ion Cordless 1-inch SDS Rotary Hammer Kit with NANO Technology on time. But when I tried it, only the Drill functions were working not the Hammer function.
Summary: I bought this tool mainly for drilling into rock up in the mountains to place anchor bolts for climbing. Let me tell you, this thing blasts through rock as well as concrete. It is actually as fast or faster than my corded rotary hammer I use.
Summary: I drill alot of concrete around pools installing automatic pool covers. I can tell you this drill has plenty of power. In fact I don't use it when drilling smaller 1/4 holes as the 36 volt hammer drill is plenty for that. It really shines drilling 1/2" holes in pool decks. Fast and light.
