Very Powerfull piece of equipment
I purchased this hammer drill kit over a year now and charged both batteries. So far l have only used one battery and the other was stored in the hard black plastic case. We to check on the battery and it was still fully charged bever dropped a volt stored over a year.
Now back to the hammer drill. This drill has so much power that is can out do an electric hammer drill with brushes. It just wont quite working on the job you put it on. I will buy this item again when l need a replacement.

The product works well, the only downside is that I got two 4ah batteries instead of 5ah batteries

Nice drill some minor issues
I bought this drill a few months ago to use as a more robust drill than my everyday one. I like the power but the Chuck loosens on easy jobs but stays tight when working with masonry or other material where the hammer action is needed. Works great with larger bits but the smaller ones 1/4" and below don't seat well in the Chuck and work loose quickly. Overall nice drill and will more than take on larger sized tasks but for smaller ones consider something like the atomic models or even drop to a 12V or black and Decker corded drill. It's not that hard to drill through sheetrock or into a wooden stud.

great battery life
In my industry, I need good battery life. Also having the 3 variable speeds depending on application is a great feature.

Excellent Driver!
I bought the 20V MAX* Cordless Brushless XR® 3-Speed Hammerdrill/Driver Kit 6 months ago. I use it constantly. I bought it to use when I started doing home repairs around our new house. I bought the Dewalt because I heard from many people that it is a good brand. We didn't have a lot of money to spend but needed something that was going to last through a lot of tough jobs. I have been highly impressed and I'm extremely happy that we bought the Dewalt driver. I've used it to drive in and out hundreds of screws, drill through wood & concrete, tightening bolts on my van, and for many other jobs. It's uses are endless. This is a great product and I'll definitely buy Dewalt brand tools again!

Bad design
Wobbling chuck. Forward and reverse switch is very loose feels like it came from a different model but it does have a lot of torque where is the precision. Had to return it very sad.

Great durability
I bought this product with work in mind. I am an electrician and use drills, impact drivers, sawzalls, and more on a daily basis. While I’m in my apprenticeship I found it time to buy my own tools. I went with the DeWalt because of its reliability, durability, and all around power. I am so happy I went with this tool and would buy this tool any day of the week.

Awesome drill
We got this drill for our machine shop to replace an aging porter cable drill. Wow, this thing has amazing torque in any speed setting. The batteries last a very long time also. However about 6 months of use and the trigger stopped working. Dewalt did take care of the warranty but it required sending it in through home depot and waiting almost a month without our tool. When we got it back though it worked like new and hasn't had a problem yet. Every manufacturer has some problems with their tools, you cant avoid it. But they fixed it and overall this is a great tool

Replacement with Power!
I bought my Drill Driver and Impact Gun because I needed to replace the worn ones. I gave the batteries an overnight charge to try them the next day. WOW! I was pleasantly surprised to find that I made the right call. Now it's time to dump the red and fill the boxes with "Bumblebees"!

can the dewalt dcd996p2 hammer drill be used as a regular drill also ?
J. D. on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yesm the Dewalt DCD996P2 is a hammer/drill driver
Just bought a brand new DCD996-p2 drill, however, ALL bits wobble, no matter how small or big the drill ( all brand new dewalt titanium bits) This is already my 2nd attempt in purchasing this item from different sources, and both presented the same problem. My original XRP-DCD970 type 1 never presented this problem until recently. It always ran TRUE. I do a lot of precision drilling and wobbling is not an option. Please Help.....?
