Can you use this drill as a power screwdriver? People have mentioned this drill may be to powerful. I’m looking for a multi-purpose drill, thoughts?
Asked by: Phil
I use it all the time for construction screws, #6 and larger. Works fine and easily runs slowly enough to drive them. I don't recommend it for watch repair.

20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver (Tool-Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 298.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful I've been looking at this drill for awhile, a long while. I already have the DeWalt full size hammer drill driver, (dcd996) but its a fairly large drill. But I needed a compact drill that didn't compromise power much. I've been doing a lot of sheet rock work on the ceiling, along with lighting, fans, and hanging cabinets. And to be fair, I'm not as young as I used to be. And that full size hammer drill weighs about 11 pounds, where as this drill weighs about 3 pounds, so it's light, compact, extremely powerful, and ergonomic. I drove a wide range of fasteners along with some decent size lags and this drill is a work horse. I'm very happy with this drill I'd recommend this drill to anyone in a heartbeat. This drill is rated at 460 UWO, or 70 NM of torque, or 620 Inch pounds once you convert it, just in case you were wondering.

My 18v 3/8" DeWalt gave up the ghost and I was going to replace with and identical drill. Instead I ended up getting the 20v 1/2" drill. What a nice upgrade - the drill is smaller, lighter, more power, longer battery life, etc. It has only had limited use so far but I am very happy with the performance.

My old 18v went to heaven so I went down and picked up one of these new lithium-ion 20v drills think this was going to be the cats meow. Needless to say it is driving me nuts with the way the forward reverse switch works and where it is located. They added a stop position in the middle and numerous times when I go to drill my hand bumps the stop position and the drill won't go so I have to push the forward again to get it to goo. Then when I want it to go in reverse I will switch it over to reverse and it stays in the stop position and I have to stop and press the reverse again sometimes two or three times. Does anyone else have this problem? The other thing I don't like is the fast speed is so fast it wants to strip the heads of the deck screws off but if you change it to the slow speed you have to wait to long to drive a screw in. It either needs to have a slower fast speed or a third speed in-between. Anyway I am returning the drill and going for the Rockwell and give it a try, this is too frustrating when trying to get a project done.

He had just borrowed mine and he said he liked it a lot. Also I thought the battery life was a lot better.

After living with so many other drills that all died earlier than they should have and really unimpressive performance I decided to go with this one because it matched up with the DeWalt sawsall l have. And it is the best drill I've ever had. It is hands down the most impressive and solid performer.

When I took it to the service center I was advised basically because the tool was not shiny the switch would be considered wear and tear and would not be covered. Dewalt service centers have too much discretion over repairs imho.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The button to switch from forward to reverse drilling interferes... The button to switch from forward to reverse drilling interferes when drilling causing drill to lock. Also, when pushing button to reverse drill it stays locked and you need to push again to unlock. Might be defective switch and will be returning the drill.
