The only drill I use constantly.
I bought this thing almost 7 or so years ago and used it almost daily for a range of carpentry projects. This thing is so tough and durable, even taking a (ok, a few 12 foot drop onto concrete, this thing is so tough. This has been my first Dewalt tool, and it's been so great I've ended up replacing almost all my other tools with Dewalt because of this drill.

My only complaint is they need to upgrade this to a brushless model.

Kicks ___ so far
I feel bad for the folks who had theirs burn out - recent production problem maybe? I bought mine just over a year ago. Have used it a lot with a six inch long 1” boring bit to bust through 2x's - studs and doubled up top plates - when pulling cable. Chews through everything no problem. I guess it's when it works it works well.

Burned up
Purchased 3 weeks ago from lowe, drilled 3 holes in dimensional pine lumber, drill burned up on third hole. I have read other reviews of this happening. I have owned dewalt cordless since the 14.4volt....very disappointing to have this happen.

One of the best tools I own
Bought this to access tight areas when construction cabinets and needed to reach the attachment screws for the drawer slides in a narrow cabinet. It did exactly what I needed it to do. I have used it many times since then and it always performs flawlessly.

Compact and lots of torque
Purchased this to drill holes through the top plate of a wall from above. Was able to drop a 1-3/8" auger through the two 2-bys without any trouble at all. Have used a number of times through studs in tight places, works great. The head design is nice and very compact. The drill isn't short, which I actually appreciate as it gives some leverage to hang onto in tight spots.

great to use in close spaces
Used this drill to drill holes in studs for a new build. I used the drill at first in tight spots. Then I found out how efficient it was to use between all the normal 16 inch spaced studs-no twisting of the wrist if the bit catches. It was the best investment I made to make my electrical work easier. ( I had to install 88 receptacles )

Great tool, I use it for drilling in tight spaces and cabinetry installations. Perfect for joining a 9" base cabinet. Allows you to drill nice straight holes through multiple wall studs.
I'm a huge fan of Dewalt Tools!!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
