20-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Compact Drill/Drill Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an outstanding drill. Purchased the same drill... This is an outstanding drill. Purchased the same drill seven years ago. Has been used on many very demanding projects through the years: 250 foot dock walkway, dock and floating dock, large area seawall, two decks and several neighbor projects. It has been used to drive 3 1/3in to 4 inch screw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent, compact, drill driver I am an DIYer and occasionally need a drill driver around the house. I have another drill driver but but I am finding this one to be much better than the other one. This drill driver runs on a 20 volt rechargeable battery that can be interchanged with some of the other Dewalt cordless tools which is a nice benefit. The first thing I thought about this drill driver is that it is compact in size and fairly light weight which I consider a positive feature. The compact size will allow you to use this drill in tighter spaces and the light weight allows you to use it longer without fatigue. The drill driver has a two speed transmission which according to the documentation allows you to use the drill at 0-600 RPM's and 0-2000 RPM's. It also has a clutch that allows you to apply different levels (1-15 and drill setting) of torque depending on what you're using it for. The drill driver seems to have a lot of power especially when you're using it on the 0-2000 RPM setting. As with any drill driver, this one can be used in forward or reverse. This seems to have considerably more power than my old drill driver and I was very impressed with this. This drill also has a small LED light to help light your work area which is also a nice feature. I have not used the drill enough yet to know how long the battery holds up so I can't comment on that. I am very impressed with this drill driver and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh. I own a lot of cordless tools, so much so that my wife thinks I have an addiction. I have given this one a go for a stint and find it to be a bit unbalanced and heavy forward in the chuck. Adding a battery does not help the balance either. It has decent torque when clutch is set to 1 and functions well but smells like a drill that is not brushless which is in fact true about this is NOT a brushless motor however, the tool only price could reflect.a little more to the consumer. It works well and as it should and I would say I would trust it so long as it was a well cared for tool. I would recommend it to someone looking to use every now and then and not daily hardcore work ethic. I personally will me red tools that dont take as much pride in made in the USA with "global materials"...I mean the drill has like 2 or 3 of these stickers on it to drive it home...we get it dewalt but global materials are not made in the USA. Bravo that the tool is in the very least assembled in the USA. Still a decent standard drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size tool The 20-volt max lithium-ion compact drill/drill driver is a smaller size drill that can still get the job done. The direction switch and speed switches are solid along with the power. The drill has a light and comes with a clip for hanging it from your belt as well. Just be aware that this tool does not come with the battery or charger. Get that separately and enjoy the great performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great DeWalt tool I have quite a bit invested in the DeWalt 20V Max product line. I own 6 batteries and this drill will be my 7th DeWalt cordless tool. All of the tools have worked flawlessly for me the last several years. I have used the brushless drill + driver kit for 3 years, but have had several situations where I need to use two different drill bits on a project, so this drill will help in those situations. I can keep the two drills setup with two different bits and not have to constantly switch between the bits. This drill is very similar in size, shape, and operation to my other (brushless) drill. This model is not brushless, so compared to my older drill, there is a very noticeable difference in the motor, how it sounds, feels, and responds to movement in the trigger. And in this model, you can see the sparks from the brushes and feel some heat from the motor after a few minutes of use. But it's very smooth, very powerful, and actually easier to modulate the speed of the drill than the brushless model, if that is something you value. The downside to this brushed model is that it isn't nearly as efficient as the brushless, resulting in shorter battery life. I don't typically need to use my drill or driver for long periods, so I've never had an issue with draining the 20V max batteries. I did some quick tests drilling holes with a relatively large forstner bit, and also drove some drywall screws. It handled both with ease, as expected. It is nice that this model is available as a bare tool, so if you have plenty of batteries and don't need the impact driver in a kit, this is a handy option to save some money. And one unexpected feature that was nice to see: this drill has a Made in USA sticker on it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that, and don't recall seeing the sticker on any of my other DeWalt tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from execellent drill and more power and drive than I thought it would be I had some reservations about this drill, but after purchase, and took it home to complete a project I was truly amazed at how powerful it was and that it allowed me to complete my building project with one battery fully charged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Drill I was impressed with the Power, size and balance of this drill. It flies through wood and metal drilling tasks. Long lasting on the smallish 1.5 Ah batteries. A lot more drill than I am used to iin a cordless. Happy to see two speeds. will be great for drywall work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots Of Power I was very impressed with this drill. I mean it has some serious power. The battery lasts awhile 15lbs settings are nice and the 2 speed trans is great for pre drilling. Very light, and the led light is very useful as well.
