DeWalt Cordless, 1/2" Drill Driver`
Tool is heavy for all day use, it is large and not able to get into tight spaces, but that is not what I bought it for. I bought it for power and reliability. Good except the keyless chuck gets loose very quickly and easily and the drills and bits drop out when you are working. Needs a better chuck design. Chuck ruins the pleasure of using the tool.

"I would buy this product again and agai
I bought this tool to use in my appliance repair business. Makes the job much quicker. Great price . I already had one of these drills but I got them so I would have extra batteries and an extra charger and this kit was cheaper than buying just 2 batteries.

Pros
Easy To Use
It is what it is
Dewalt makes a great cordless drill, but the standard battery that comes with most drills is cheesy at best. Get the XRP batteries, they last the job and then some. Would be nice if dewalt offered this upgraded battery at time of purchase.

18 Volt 1/2 inch hammer drill driver
I worked at an Electric generation power plant for 22yrs and one day we were working on the third floor from the ground on some handrail close to the edge I dropped the brand new 18v 1/2 inch hammer drill onto the black top drive. When it hit I saw something fly apart. when I got down to the ground and looked at the drill I noticed that all that was wrong was that the battery popped out. I put it back in and went back to work. Thats when I became a Dewalt believer.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
