Will this drill generate enough power or torque to remove a 21MM wheel lug nut?

Asked by Cigano February 12, 2018

Answers

probably not because you would have use a hammer drill something that would ratchet or hammer. i think the drill would twist in your hand.

Can this drill through concrete walls

Asked by Ebony June 8, 2017
4
Answers

Yes, you can drill through concrete walls, but it's not the correct tool for it. If you want to drill through concrete, your best bet is a hammer drill. This tool will work, but there's a better tool to do the job.

Do I need to buy screw separately?

Asked by Gracie731 February 25, 2017
4
Answers

If you're going to use this just as a power driver, there are better tools. This is a medium duty tool and if you're a homeowner looking for a power driver, you should look into 12V tools. They're lighter and some come with a philips and flat blade bit.

How many batteries come with it?

Asked by Phil January 29, 2017

Answers

This kit comes with two batteries and one charger.

how long does it run on the charge?

Asked by lolo January 25, 2017
5
Answers

not really sure we just got it and have used it a few times after charging and just got done another chore with the use of the drill and just plugged it in when done to fully charge, so we have never used it long enough for the battery to die. I think the length of time we used longest was about 2-3 hours and thats when we plugged it in. not that it was dead it was not.

Will these batteries work with the Dewalt 18V Flexible Floodlight DW919 ?

The batteries will work with your floodlight.

Answers

Dewalt rates this drill as 330 UWO (units watt output). That is NOT the same thing as foot lbs of torque.

I have had this drill for 5 years. The batteries now won't charge, but I have used this thing to the max on several occasions and I couldn't be happier with the result. A couple more batteries and this thing will last another 5 years. Mine does not have an led light, which is handy. Also if you are doing a ton of overhead work a lighter lithium ion or smaller voltage would be better. You can definitely get a forearm and shoulder workout if working overhead. My father has a craftsman 19.2 volt and this will run circles around that. Overall very pleased with my black Friday purchase 5 years ago!

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.

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!

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!!!!!!

This drill has excellent power.
In the past I've had many different cordless drills,but have never bought a Dewalt because of the price differntial. When I saw this drill at The Home Depot at the "special price"I had to have it. Being a woodworker for 50 years I have seen and in one case used a Dewalt cordless drill of a friend of mine and was surprised at the power. I had to have one.
