I LOVE this drill!!! Best tool I've ever owned!!!!
My brother used to have a Dewalt 14.4V drill driver. I used it a few times and loved it. A couple years ago I got a used 14.4V at an auction. I loved it, but it was a bit heavy since it had the old NiCd batteries. I decided to finally upgrade to this new 20V lithium version. I can't say enough good things about it. I "LOVE" it!! It feels better in your hand and is so much more nimble and lightweight with the lithium batteries. It is also much more powerful than the old NiCd battery system. I might recommend getting the chuck that has the smooth finish though. This one can rough up your palm if you aren't holding it securely when tightening the chuck. It hasn't been a big issue though, since I now grip it firmly when tightening. I "HIGHLY" recommend this drill / driver. It is the best tool I've ever owned.

Great entry drill!
Got this as a Christmas present last year. I have used it for several remodeling projects, putting together night stands, installing flooring, and more. It works great just as it should. I havent had any problems with the batteries. I did not receive the belt clip though I guess someone left it out of the box.

Highly recommend worth every penny

Amazing product
I bought this when my last Dewalt drill battery that I've had for 15+ year died. It was time for an upgrade. This had been an amazing drill. I will never use anything else other than Dewalt.

Dependable Drill!
I’ve had this drill for a few years now, when I first bought my house. It’s been through a lot of use and has always kept up. The batteries recharge insanely fast. The whole product is outstanding and I highly recommend.

Tried this kit, bought a second one.
After using the drill for a month, I bought a second kit. I love having four batteries and the ability to have a countersink bit in one and a screwdriver in the other. This pair of drills have really performed for me. Thanks, Dewalt!

Awesome Drill. Battery lasts forever.
This drill has plenty of power. Mine also came with two 20V batteries, although most of the time I only end up using one battery for any given job. Definitely more compact than what I was used to using, as it’s been awhile since my previous cordless drill purchase and technology has come a long way. Can’t speak on longevity yet, I’ve only had this drill for about 18 months, but the batteries still hold plenty of charge and I’ve had no issues yet.

All day battery! Maybe even more for light work!
I’ve had this drill for about 2 years now and it has never failed me. It’s actually my first drill to own. The keyless chuck works well and what I love most is the batteries last a LONG TIME. Especially for me. I have 2 batteries and I can leave one in the drill, one in my bag, and when I come back to it after a week it’s ready to go. No recharging! I do use this to drive screws and bolts as well and it hasn’t failed me.

I will never go back to corded tools. Never.
I’ve had this drill for about four years now and couldn’t be more pleased with it. The batteries charge very quickly and the run time is terrific. When I purchased this I was specifically looking for something lightweight yet powerful and this is it.

Poor battery performance
This was a gift for my birthday and I use a drill for my personal business several times per week and honestly the battery life is terrible. One of the two batteries can’t hold a charge longer then 5 minutes if that and the other only lasts 10-15 minutes, what’s worse is the charger instantly reads them fully charged sometiems after they completely die in the drill. I’m not sure what the issue is but I am sorely disappointed. If this is a fixable issue or if something may be resolved from DeWalt then I’ll change my statement but as of now I’m not happy with this tool.

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.
