I work in the construction/carpentering field every day and stoped using dewalt several years ago because there 18v stuff was junk and just wouldn't last. Been using Milwaukee 18v for past 10 yrs or so. Thought I would give dewalt another try and bought the impact, drill, and jigsaw and I couldn't be happier! They run forever on the 5 ah batteries!

Can this drill operate adequately on the smaller 20v batteries or is the 5H required?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2018

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 120 days.
