Heavy duty, long lasting battery and lots of power, great tool. The only downside is that the posi drive bits are too soft, apart from that no Complaints

This is a great little 2 speed drill/driver. Plenty of power and nice and neat weight wise. Slap a 5ah battery on it and you are away all day.

Very tidy, compact design. Features an adjustable light on the handle so can be easily used on darker situations such as in tight corners. Much better then the brushed motor drills, seems to have more power and doesn't want to bog down as much

Very good drill, powerful enough to do most tasks without breaking your wrist, very good value for money. Only negative point for me personally is that after two years of use, it's cracked both sides on the joint between the handle and the drill body itself... currently waiting to see if it's covered under the warranty but I'm not holding my breath.

The 796 is my go to cordless at the moment, it’s got the perfect balance between power and weight, even with a 5ah battery attached. The option to use the LED as a floodlight is always an added bonus when you’re stuck under some stairs, working on a consumer unit and your head torch dies!

I've had this drill for a while now. Like most of Dewalts tools, I can't fault it. Changing the drill bit is simple. The magnet on the side of the drill holds another drill bit which is handy if you are drilling a tiled wall. Changing from hammer drill to drill is simple. Changing the battery is simple, and it performs very well.

Light weight, well balanced but powerful, great for working at height. Also the magnet drill/bit holder is a great fearire

Hi. This is Ben Curry from Electrical Innovations in Derby. You're watching Tool Talk. I'm going to review a DeWalt 18 Volt Brushless Drill with a Bosch 28 mil speed bit in it, so here goes.

It's the Brushless 18 Volt XR with a four amp power battery. I'm using the Bosch Twisted [inaudible 00:00:29] that's part number 711, 28 mil hole saw. Now, that was a sharp hole saw, not drilled virgin hole saw we call it. Not drilled a hole. We've done one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 holes off a single battery with one Bosch, sorry, one DeWalt single battery from this drill.

I don't know if that's good or bad. I bet all of you guys out there have got similar tools, so show us what you got. Show us what you're made of, and let's see what other drills have a similar capacity. Okay, guys. This is Tool Talk. This is the DeWalt, I don't even know what it's called, DeWalt smashed to bits drill that we've had a while. Trusty one, this is. It's seen a lot of hammer. We've had a lot of use from it. It's the DV795 on that one. There you go. Thanks very much.
