The Wrist Breaker. So much oomph in this bit of kit. Keep a hold of it or else. Lol. It’s brilliant power wise, the 3 speed settings are a god send. I’ve lent mine to various people when on a job with them. Always have to keep an eye on the metal workers though as using it to put 10mm holes in steel snags and hurts their wrists now and again lol. Awesome. I love this drill. It’s my go to drill.

If a well know beer company made drills they’d make this. I’ve tried almost every 18v drill on the market and this is way out there at the front in my opinion. 3 speeds, tonnes of power for everyday use. Part of the amazing XR range of tools by Dewalt. I’d highly recommend if your in the market or looking to start a 18v collection of tools.

Great drill used daily for almost 3 years, plenty of power for most jobs. The only time it struggled was drilling 32mm auger bits into larch logs on a cabin going about 250mm deep, had to give it a rest to let it cool down but it managed everything I needed. I'll gladly replace it with the same again

Thie 996 is my second favourite drill against the 796, however she still gets a solid 5 stars. That little extra power is perfect when you need to drill a few holes into some concrete and can’t be bothered to go to the van. After my sds packed up I was even using this with a 1500mm long 30mm sds bit to drill a particularly tricky cable route through a wall, did I look silly? yes I did! did I get that cable route through that wall? Yes! yes I did!!

I have used DeWalt for a good number of years and they have always been really reliable. This does exactly the job, no fuss no blowing whistles, but so reliable. I always look to DeWalt, you cant go wrong in my opinion. Great tools and a good value for money price.

This drill is a great addition to anyone's tool bag its light enough to be used all day and powerful enough to do the job. I don't use the driver part off the tool as i have the impact driver as well so cant comment on that part off the tool.

Really solid drill from 6mm fixings to drilling 25mm holes through joists this drill does it with ease. Unlike the smaller versions this drill is very versatile and a great addition to the tool kit!

Worth every penny, this drill gets hammered every day, I push it to its limits regularly. I have 4Ah batteries for it which are pretty good too but the level indicators dont last sadly. Overall a damn good drill driver

I might be a bit biased as all my tools are Dewalt but this is a cracking drill. The LED light is bright and lights up very well in darker situations. It packs a punch on the masonry settings unlike some other cordless drills I have tried. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this drill to anyone

Bloody brilliant combi! Drills through almost anything bar heavy concrete. Although with the right bit it might. Going up from my original 775 or whatever it is, which has been shelved and not seen light of day since. I also shelved my rotary drill too. So I am carrying less drills around with me. I dont get my sds out as often either as ut goes through most solid substrate dead easy. Having a work light built in has proven to be a lifesave a few times too! This is a must have, if you want a combi 18v.
