There are many DCD790 packages. You can find more info on DeWalt's web site. The DCD790B includes only the tool, no batteries, case, or charger.

Answer: 
No, (with Dewalt) the last letter in the model number "B" stands for "Bare Tool" or in other words just the tool - no case, no bag, no battery, no bits, etc... If you want this tool with a battery, look at buying a kit such as the DCD790D2, or DCK281D2.

Answer: 
Would not use. I gave this drill many chances, even on simple projects like building a 2x4 frame for a hobby table, and the bits would come loose. The 18V models seem to have better quality reviews and have not seen issues with the chuck like this model.

Why are manufacturer no displacing the torque on the specification. The weight and torque are important consideration when making a decision on a drill.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless chuck Wanted to like this drill, but overall this is not a good drill due solely to the chuck. Battery life, hand-feel, motor seem very good, but with drill bits always coming loose or being left in wood (even pine 2x4's), makes this drill useless. I am an experienced DIYer and even simple woodworking projects, i.e. building a workbench and tables for a model train layout, were a challenge using this drill. I had to dig out my old Craftsman to finish one job, which I hate but at least it held the bits. I have used previous Dewalt drills and love all my other Dewalt products, but this is by far the worst Dewalt product and worst overall drill I've used. June 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Met or exceeded expectations The Dewalt DCD790B Compact Drill/Drive and the Dewalt tool family are superior. They may be a little pricey but the old saying holds true, "You get what you pay for". This is the 20volt tool. I do not know if the others hold a charge as well but, the size and shape are much more pleasing than the 18v version. Could not be happier. May 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sorry dewalt I purchased the drill to use in construction found it weak and gutless stops and you have to repull trigger even on light tasks purchased 20 v kit original brush drill worked ok suddenly used rarely swithing brands October 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with purchase much better thsn the drills with brushes. longer baattery life and more torque when using this drill was a makita man till using this dewalt XR March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Drill Small size for the power, good chuck and long battery life. January 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great drill, but refurbished The drill is great. Keeps up with the older 18v hammer drill, unlike the non brushless 20v drill. Not much to say besides pickup a 3.0 or even a 4.0 AH battery if you're going to use all day. The only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 is because this product was refurbished. I was expecting a brand new item. It just would've been nice if the refurbished bit was in the description. How do I know it wasn't brand new? Resealed box, dings/scratches on drill, and missing warranty card. Now you've been told. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As expected Not much to say. My expectations were high and it has met these. Plenty of power and minimal run-out. Which is what I was looking for September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Drill Excellent power in a slightly compact package. I already had 3Ah batteries from my brushless impact driver(also excellent) so this was perfect. Drilled about 100 1/2" holes through landscape timbers 2 timbers thick. May 20, 2014
