You probably won’t be disappointed with the 450 unit watts it produces that makes it goo for metal, wood, and masonry. The chuck is unlocks and locks easily and has a very tight grip. The three speeds are ideal for adjusting based on the task at hand. The LED light can come in handy.
If you are a professional, then this is the type of drill you are looking for. It’s performance is second to none among 18V drills.
- Battery Not Included
The weight without a battery is just under 4 pounds, but with it is at least over five. Handling a five pound drill can cause fatigue, but this is somewhat expected considering the metal gears and the power this drill has. There are other 18V hammerdrills that are a bit lighter however.
Also, no batteries are included with the drill, so they will have to be purchased separately. If you already own a DeWalt drill, then you can use those.
Great drill, lots of power, easy to use. A little heavy for anything delicate, but not uncomfortable, at least for me. – November Wind
I bought this as a replacement for the previous model. Works just as it should! The only thing that detracts from this model is overall weight. – Forrest Allen
This unit (the DCD950B) combines the best of the old and the new (LED light, metal tranny, and a pack adapter that works for either pack) – with 18V being so common it would make anyone happy – those using it for light jobs around the house may consider the li-ion pack while those using it to cut big holes with one plunge may want the extra current available from the xrp nicad packs. Either way its a winner and came with my multi-tool system – it was the reason I picked that system in fact because it had all the right stuff on it.
