Awesome Compact Drill!
Just finished building my deck. I love this drill! Tremendous amount of torque and even better battery life, yet light weight and easy to maneuver. Highly recommend this drill! You won’t be disappointed.

Nice Progress in Quality
Started using the day I bought this drill. Previous DC988 drill was excellent but battery life on my second set is diminishing. This product lighter weight, has lots more juice. Nice light beam can be handy. Convenient grip and smaller size. So it is win for me on all fronts. Thank you Dewalt team!

Excellent Product
Purchased this drill/driver about a month ago. I am really impressed with its performance and appreciate the additional use time afforded by the brushless operation. The light is very intense and helps in darkened locations. Highly recommend this product. Good value.

Fantastic compact drill !
I had a Black and Decker Firestorm drill for 28 years and it just recently died. I researched various brands onl;one and found this one to have great reviews. I bought it yesterday and used it this morning for a small project. I love it !!. It is small, very light, has great power and the batteries charge very quickly. Hopefully it will last as long as my B&D. Love this new drill !!

Best drill for the money
I upgraded from PortorCable and wow what a difference. For the money, it doesn’t get any better than this drill. Perfect drill for any homeowner. The only thing I can’t find is the bit holder clip to buy from Dewalt. This is a must have in any homeowners toolbox.

Cheap parts on this drill
we just purchased this DCD-791D2 drill, depending on the position you are holding the drill, the reverse / forward button can actually disengage while trying to drill something, meaning the drill doesn't know if its in forward mode / reverse mode, more or less neutral mode. The button was created using cheap parts compared to their older models. We want to love the drill but dang, basic functionality of this drill is lacking!

Works like a champ! Recommend the hard case if you have the habit of not being gentile with tool storage. Super torque and long battery life for projects throughout the day. It's pricey, but well worth every penny :

Great tool with lots of power.
Reluctantly spent the money on this drill and it has more than been worth the money I spent. It is a very powerful drill that holds up in steady use. I use it to thread parts so I am on and off the throttle to the point where the chuck gets hot. No fluctuations in the speed or torque as it gets hot. Paired with the 2.0 batteries this is a great tool.

What is the Max (Ft.Lbs) ?
Alex on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This drill puts out 620 in-lbs of torque.
Just purchased this drill. I have done an incredible amount of research on this new Dewalt compact drill and all the reviews seem to be good. I just opened the box and put the battery on and I am finding that the same thing is happening that a number of people complained about regarding the 790. The battery is not locking in place securely but instead allows movement from side to side. I contacted Dewalt and I was told that the battery should lock in place without any movement whatsoever so it's going back. I will try a second one but if the results are the same, I will end up going with another brand because this issue has been addressed many time before and nothing has changed.

BEST ANSWER: Sorry to hear about the product defect, hopefully the issue is resolved with a replacement

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.
