My biggest complaint is that the keyless chuck will loosen easily. Sometimes in the middle if drilling and it leaves a bit stuck in the wood. I have 2 of these drills and both have the same problem. Also customer service is of no help, all they suggest is take it to a service center(closest one is 40 miles away). I may have to return both to the store for something else.
Pros: Reasonable power, lightweight, comfortable to handle
Cons: Does not really rate 12 V. Closer to 12V. Chuck loostens easily and batteries do not last long. Also the dinky little light does no good as it is in the wrong place.
Sorry I didn't buy this drill sooner. Had a cheaper one of another brand and it never was reliable to use. The DeWalt is exactly what I need for my around the house and yard projects. It's lightweight and powerful enough to do the job! The extra battery pack is a great asset!
The tool is ok, but the website registration is cumbersome. If you want the specialty of the company, change the red ink to ask for that instead of asking for the specialty of the store where it was purchased.
