My Final Opinion of Dewalt 18V Combi drill

This drill is lightweight easy to use and the battery last a long time so it is great for building projects. It also has a all metal transmission and chuck which give top marks when it comes to the product lasting a long time. With all things consider this is a good drill and will be used for a long time.

What do Others say about the drill:

“Had this for a few months now. No complaints at all. It’s done everything I’ve asked of it.

Adjustable clutch provides a really useful range of torque settings.
2 speed ranges and pressure sensitive trigger provide excellent speed control. You can undo screws etc. in an instant.
The battery lasts a really long time. I haven’t managed to drain it yet. I top it up now and again. I haven’t had to buy a spare battery.
Well balanced. Feels comfortable and ergonomic.”

and another:

“Light weight, powerful and perfect for those hard to reach jobs. Drill is compact and powerful. It would have been nice though to have some idea of drill charge % remaining to extend life. Li ion batteries I understand are best used and stored at between 40% and 60% charged. The latest Dewalt 18V features the new XR Li-Ion technology, this model is part of the intelligent XR Lithium Ion Series designed for speed and efficiency.“
