Another great long lasting bit of kit. Just make sure to get the one with metal chuck as the cheaper options are plastic and will not stand up to the abuse of us tradesmen.

Brilliant Drill, has a good weight to it & with it being XR it has the hammer setting. Use it daily with the 5Ah Batteries and it lasts all day i love the drill and its Dewalt so its already very well made, not too expensive either for the body only.

I've had this drill for a while now. Like most of Dewalts tools, I can't fault it. Changing the drill bit is simple. The magnet on the side of the drill holds another drill bit which is handy if you are drilling a tiled wall. Changing from hammer drill to drill is simple. Changing the battery is simple, and it performs very well.

I have had 2 of these simply because i prefer dewalt and the old one was stolen. I have had quite a bit of trouble with the chuck on both of them. Seem to be very liable to slipping. Lets the DeWalt range down. Very good new feature of having a brightness adjustable torch on the front and the anti vibration technology.

Does everything you need it to do and comes at a very reasonable price. Had to replace my chuck after about a year as it had stopped working correctly but apart from that I’d say they’re great value for money.
