I was looking at this: DeWalt 20-Volt Li-Ion Cordless Brushless Compact Drill. Is this a hammer drill? The term "Drill/Driver" is used to describe many of these drills, is that what this means. I have a DeWalt 18 volt 1/2 inch chuck hammer drill 15 years old and needs to be replaced. I was looking at this one or would you recommend another?

The hammerdrill term is meant to define a drill that utilizes a mechanical force to speed up the drilling time into hard surfaces like concrete, stucco, brick, stone and other types of masonry products. The hammerdrill action helps the carbide cutter on the tip of a masonry drill clear or chip material out of the drill hole faster and with less fatigue on the operator. Read Less

Braking Sound

This question is from 20-Volt Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Cordless Brushless Compact Drill
Asked by
Howell, New Jersey
Read all my Q&A
September 7, 2015
I returned this drill to Home Depot because of a loud (retching) sound the drill made when stopping, which I think is related to the drill's breaking system. Has anyone else experienced this sound? Looking at some reviews of this drill/model on YouTube, it seems this might be a normal characteristic of this drill and they also felt it did not sound right as other similar (20V brushless) drills did not make this loud and annoying mechanical sound. I wanted to find out what others experienced and their thoughts before considering this drill again. Thanks

Answer: 
Yes, this is normal. In fact, if you have the drill set on speed setting 2, the sudden braking affect can actually loosen the chuck. Can be a bit annoying.

Lol... yea thats normal. It's just trying to spit the bit out.
Having mine since they came out, they're still working fine.
I thought the same thing when I first got it but got use to it.
Currently have 5 drills & 3 impacts and they get the job done.
I wouldnt worry about it. They're light, powerful & a pleasure to use.

Answer: 
Yes it would, maybe too much. Try low speed first.
The 4-1/2" hole saw is almost bigger than the drill.
I recently blasted a batch of 4" holes through 3/4" MDO ply.
A few times the holesaw came out of the chuck. Thats one
beef with this drill. Otherwise it's a charm to use and carry.
Nothing like holding 3 guns in one hand :D
Be careful drilling thin acrylics unclamped. Sharp bits will
grab and ruin it.

Answer: 
The manual states the max size hole saw should be 2" in wood. However, I have used it with a 4" hole saw in wood 1/2" thick with no problems. Having said that, you'll need to decide if HDPE plastic has a similar density as wood. If the plastic is more dense then the answer is no.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 20-VOLT LITHIUM-ION CORDLESS BRUSHLESS COMPACT DRILL Seems like a very powerful drill, but the true test will be how long it will last. $200 seems high, but I needed it. August 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An excellent drill! This is the first cordless drill I've purchased in the last 17 years and I'm very impressed. It's much smaller and lighter than my previous drill (but probably comparable to current products). It came with two 2 Ah batteries and the DCB112 charger, which charges the batteries very quickly. The 2 Ah battery seems fine for home use, especially since two batteries were included. But if you plan on using this for commercial use, you probably should consider purchasing higher capacity batteries. I LIKE THIS DRILL! March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finished fence project quickly After watching some DIY videos online that compared the Dewalt DCD790D2 Compact Drill to comparable competitor products, I bought the Dewalt drill specifically for helping me build a backyard fence that had been long on my "to-do" list. I was very impressed with how quickly I was able to complete the attachment of the vertical fence boards portion of the project with the Dewalt drill. This drill was a significant time saver, gave me no problems, and battery life was quite reasonable. Can't wait to have an excuse to use it again for an extended period! May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big Improvement Lighter, more powerful, never hesitates, stands up to the load better too. Brushless makes a lot of difference in a power tool. The work lights are located in a better place, always putting light where you need it, no matter what you have attached to the chuck. This drill is a huge step forward in battery tool development, it would be hard to go back to the old one now. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill Great purchase! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for drill February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase I Made Love it. Works well & is powerful. SeWalt products have always been my nimber 1 choice. Will continue to nuy these products. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I expect from Dewalt I needed a powerful, lightweight, cordless drill\driver and this one is a powerhouse! My 3 year old even thinks so! It has more than paid for itself in the month I have owned it. December 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loose F/R switch I actually returned this product and bought a replacement the same day. The first one had a "loosy-goosey" forward/reverse switch, such that when I had it in the reverse position, the slightest pressure from my "trigger" finger was enough to nudge the switch into "neutral," resulting in the trigger locking. I was having to hold the F/R switch in reverse with my free hand. The replacement tool, however, did not suffer from this issue, and has been working fine. So, if you get one of these, it might behoove you to test the F/R switch for "firmness." November 10, 2015
