The cordless drill hardly needs an introduction at this point. The indispensable power tool helps you tackle projects faster and more efficiently. Need to assemble new furniture? It will drives screws, saving you time and effort. Planning to hang up shelving or pictures? You can drill holes into various materials, including wood, metal, and plastic with the correct bit.
DeWalt’s cordless drill is a respectable entry-level model, featuring a brushless motor that delivers a maximum torque of 340 unit watts out (UWO) and has a speed range of 0-1,600 rpm. The combination of the brushless motor, adjustable rpm, and two-speed gearbox (low and high) makes this a reliable option for many tasks, like driving screws and assembling furniture we mentioned before, plus various DIY projects.
On the user-friendliness side of things, the drill has a ½-inch ratcheting chuck, allowing you to easily and quickly change bits with one hand. And the 15-position clutch simplifies the process of selecting the optimal torque for the job, from a light touch when turning a screw a single rotation to enough oomph to drive it flush without damaging what you’re working on. Essentially, the feature helps prevent over-torquing and under-driving.
The drill also has a built-in LED light for illumination. And its relatively compact design measures 7.6 inches from front to back, making it easier to maneuver it in confined spaces. To top things off, the drill’s ergonomic handle has a comfortable and secure grip, so your hand won’t cramp during extended use.
Your purchase comes with 20-volt, 2.0-amp-hour battery, which is compatible with the drill on sale and over 300 other products in DeWalt’s 20-Volt Max line, including impact wrenches and tire inflators. You also get a charger to keep the battery topped off, plus a soft carrying case to toss it all in for portability and storage.
