    Battery loses power but is still fully charged

    published

    I bought the 10 piece cordless kit, which came with 3 batteries. Battery life is really poor on all 3 batteries. They are now 12 months old and its getting worse. Drill dies after putting in 10 screws and will go through all 3 batteries within an hour. If it was only 1 battery playing up, I would understand but 3? The batteries seem ok when using the blower and tools that don't need the power.
    Really disappointed and would expect a lot more from this brand.

    One of my many favourite Dewalt tools

    published

    I can’t believe how good Dewalt have lasted over the many years I have used them. After using them for several years I am always able to sell them online for a great price and trade up to their latest technology. This drill is no exception. I won’t consider changing from Dewalt ever! Between their 20v & 54v flexibly tanges....Brilliant!!

    A must-have for the workshop

    published

    The Dewalt hammer drill is really great.I bought it during a sale and I'm really impressed with its features. First, it has a very sturdy design, and would most likely survive a fall from a standard table. Also, it has a very good battery life. I can go through a day's worth of projects without having to re-charge. So far, this is my favorite tool in the workshop.

    Indestructable!!!

    published

    Great drill, goes all day. Well prices and extremely well built. Batteries only need to be charged every day or two and are competitively priced compared to batteries made by some of the other high end drill companies. Would definately recommend.

    The best Dewalt Hammer Drill

    published

    This is Dewalt's current top of the line Drill/Driver/Hammer tool and it doesn't disappoint. It's an all metal construction and you need two hands to operate. The handle is a must for hammer action. Drilled more than a dozen hole into masonry and concrete since owning this tool. The only disappointment is using inferior masonry bits. I now use Bosch Multi-Construction (blue coloured) masonry bits.
    Sturdy construction. Plenty of speed and torque options for precise control.
    The LED light is disappointing, doesn't light the work area.
