where do i keep the key

where do i keep the key
Asked by: Ricky
You should have received a yellow strap with the key. It wraps around the cord and the holes in one end go on each end of the key. It then travels with the drill.

Can I use this drill for 6"deep holes on concrete?

Asked by: acidtech2009
I would advise no. Depending on the width of your hole and how often your drilling I would think you would need an SDS Plus if not an SDS Max drill.

DEWALT 7.8 Amp 1/2 in. Variable Speed Reversing Drill is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 156.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME TOOL I built my 2400 SF log home with this drill 10 years ago its still going. I used a 1/2" X 12" auger bit for the lag bolt pilot holes and a 1 1/8" X 18" auger bit for the 1" dowls at all joints and corners. This drill has got some torque to it. Whenever the big bit hit a knot it didn't stop. The bit stopped but the torque this thing has almost wrapped me up a few times. I still use this drill today. Most of my power tools are Dewalt. I highly recommend this drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This drill means business! I bought this drill 3-4 years ago because there are a handful of occasions where my 18v cordless drill is not up to the task. For example drilling large grommet holes in thick plywood. You will run the battery down very quickly on a cordless tool. For these higher demand applications this drill is the right tool for the job. You can use it around the house too but it might be overkill and the drill is a little heavy. The front grip is removable as well since you don't always need it. IIf you're only going to buy one drill this is definitely the one to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dewalt DW235G vs. Milwaukee 0299-20 Magnum This review will compare the Milwaukee 0299-20 Magnum and the Dewalt DW235G. Similar drills from a specification perspective. I purchased the Milwaukee drill initially due to all the rave online reviews at Amazon and Home Depot. It seemed like it was well put together. I bought this specifically to drill holes in railroad ties for rebar pins. I used it with a Bosch 3/4" by 9" daredevil auger bit. The first few holes went well. Then the drill started to bog down a lot requiring me to back it out often to clear the debris. Not a huge deal. But then the bit bound and the entire chuck assembly snapped and fell off. There was an alan bolt inside the assembly that sheered completely and the drill was ruined. I thought maybe I just got a bad drill. So I took it back to Home Depot (it was cheaper there than Amazon) and they exchanged it after I explained what happened. I manually freed the bit and started over with the Milwaukee replacement drill. Drilled the next hole and ran into the same frequent binding. This time I looked at the chuck assembly and noticed that it was unscrewing itself from the body of the drill. I stopped immediately before the drill broke and tried to tighten the assembly up manually but it wouldn't move. So I returned the Milwaukee and opted for the Dewalt DW235G. It also had good reviews and was very similar from a power perspective. Brought the Dewalt home and went to work. Powered through the rest of my railroad ties with no issues. The bit did get slightly bound up at times, even to the point where I had to uncouple it from the drill and manually back it out of the ties, but the drill never showed any signs of coming apart like the Milwaukee. It was powerful and did a great job on a tough project. I did like the side handle better on the Milwaukee, as it had grooves to slot it in to keep it tight. The Dewalt does not have grooves and the handle did come loose once but for the most part it was fine. The Milwaukee also seemed to have better variable speed control. The Dewalt is okay but the trigger was more sensitive and made it ramp up quick if I didn't use an extremely light touch. The Dewalt felt more solid, worked better for me, and was $40.00 cheaper. I would recommend the DW235G if you are looking for something in the corded 8 amp category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill I was mixing mortar for my garage floor and my cordless was burning through batteries like there's no tomorrow. I couldn't charge them fast enough. So in a pinch i bought this one, and man, am i happy. I've thrown in a 1/2" mixing paddle, and this thing spins it without issue. The additional handle makes it much easier to handle the torque with viscous thinsets. Great drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Electric Drill This is not exactly the same drill that I just brought as far as the pictures goes because the handle has a black rubber for better grip and the stabilizing grip handle has a rod to prevent someone from over drilling. The only thing that matches my drill is the fact that mines does need to plug into the wall and it is a 7.8 amp hammer drill. The stabilizing handle does help me keep the drill stable while I am drilling at high speed. I was able to drill through an aluminum storm window sill with ease. I was using this drill to help me install an air conditioner bracket for my new AC. I used the drill the tighten the screws on the screen bar bracket that goes on top of the AC and I used the drill to tighten screws through the bracket installation that would hold up the new AC and prevent it from falling eleven stories down. I had no issues with the drill and I think that this drill is a keeper for future projects. This is a lot cheaper than buying a battery power drill that cost over 200 dollars. I am happy with my first drill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This drill comes without the alignment bar and doesn't have the switch to change from hammer dril... This drill comes without the alignment bar and doesn't have the switch to change from hammer drill to normal drill mode. For an additional $20 I could have bought that version and been a lot happier. A lot of folks are complaining that this doesn't cut it...It's all a function of the hardness of the material your drilling through. I am cutting 3/8 inch holes in a foundation laid down in the late 60's. The cement is hard, and takes about 1 hour per hole. Expect to consume a few bits as you go. I can see how this would cut through cinder block, or "light" cement, but a foundation type of hardness is going to take you a "while"...Spend the extra $20 and get the drill with the option to switch off the "hammer" mode and you'll have a great drill for normal drilling work, too... Includes a nice long cord, and a rubber connector to lock the chuck key on to the power cord. No case. Power handle works great...Says it's made in the USA!!! Yeah!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chuck broke off with light use I bought this drill a year ago and used it lightly to drill holes in wooden beams for wiring. I went to use it and the chuck head broke off. The main metal connection to the chuck.
