Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 549 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill I've owned this drill and 2 batteries for 3 years. The drill has taken a few drops, some paint splashes, dirt, wood putty and looks less yellow every year due to abuse. I recently installed 400 ft of stockade fence with this drill switching between predrilling holes and driving screws, it never skipped a beat. With the two batteries and quick charger, by the time one battery dies, the other is charged. Granted, these batteries don't hold a charge as long as the XRP, they are still great. I would highly recommend this product. It's a bummer it no longer comes with a hard case, but that shouldn't stop you. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordless Driver is a bit heavy, but a great value with plenty of power. Purchased item for all around basic use. It's a bit heavy, but holds a charge very well, and has plenty of power for turning even the toughest screws. Bag is a bit small, but holds all items, including charger. Overall, this was a great value. June 3, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! Got this drill as a birthday gift for my husband - he loved it! Says its the best gift I've ever gotten him! The drill and driver charge quickly and are strong, despite being compact. Great product! November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This drill is great. Affordable and durable. Had the 12V for more than 10 years...this one is a great replacement December 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unbreakable! Had this drill since 2008 and never failed me. I've dropped it numerous times off an 8' ladder and it's still running strong. Also the battery life is unbelievable! Still only takes about a 1/2 hour to fully charge and it will run all day with moderate use!! No signs of getting weak at all!!! Will definitely buy another one when this starts to slow down, if ever. You will get your moneys worth on this drill. And I bought mine when it was $160. What a deal at $99!!!!!! January 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't beat 89.00 I have owned two of these for 10 years, used them commercially for first 3 years. I always kept battery's out of the cold and tried not to leave battery's on charger over an hour. Now 10 years later I have my first bad battery. both drills still run great. Bought the drills at nearly 300.00 a piece. December 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dewalt 18V drill DC970 recieved drill for birthday present, had good experience with dewalt at my work in the past. Liked the fact it was 1/2' chuck...However after charging the batteries, I found that it would not change from high speed to low. The switch would move but it had no affect on the rpm. I found on the web site it should be 0-450, and 0-1500 rpm........mailed in for warranty repair.........waiting its return, the added cost will be $25.00 postage. Not real happy.......My last cordless drill was a 18V sears craftsman, Which I loved, but it was 14+ years old and the batteries had been replaced once March 27, 2015
