I work as an elevator constructor and this drill really holds up for the heavier duty jobs. I do a lot of drilling through steal beams and hammer drilling through concrete on a daily basis and I had one that lasted almost 4 years. I find the fact that since it’s not brushless you can push it a little harder as opposed to the newer brushless models other guys I know on the job have problems with, whether it’s dewalt or Milwaukee. It seems that on the brushless models there’s a built in senser that when it gets too hot or getting pushed too much it kills the power making you wait while it cools down. The complaint with the older models is that the brushes will wear out, but for a $120 bux it’s well worth it to beat the hell out of this thing for a couple years and then get a new one. If you’re just a handyman/ around the house type you’ll have this tool for a lifetime. In the end it’s money well spent and a nice heavy duty drill.

I purchased this as a gift for my son who is an electrician. I have already been informed that it has broken. The clutch isn’t engaged any longer. It is currently at a repair facility and I am waiting to hear from Dewalt. Second time he has used it.

I bought this as a gift as I already own 2 and was tired of lending mine out, these things are a beast and can do pretty much what any corded drill can do and then some. I did allot of the construction on my house with the 18v version 10 years ago and when it finally died a couple years back I bought the 20v version and I have not been disappointed with them yet. Its not a big deal to change bits but having two certainly makes it quicker to get jobs done since I don’t have to change the bits all the time. Do I and would I recommend this drill to people? Yes! Great Power and torque which are all adjustable.
Well pleased with product

I have one of those wives that gives me the eye every time an Amazon box arrives on the front doorstep. I am a DeWalt tool guy but I put off ordering this battery hammer drill for years. Wish I had a dime for all the times I stood waiting for the drill bit in my regular drill to penetrate the concrete far enough that I could seat the concrete anchor and another dime for the times climbing down the ladder to plug my cord powered electric hammer drill back in. Just used this product for first time on concrete block with the Libatter 1 pack 20v 5.0ah replacement battery I purchased at about the same time. It’s a beautiful thing.
A reliable, versatile hammer drill with quick and effortless bit and battery change outs.

Like any Dewalt cordless power tool, this is a high quality, reliable hammer drill. Bit and battery change outs are quick and effortless. It has a great warranty too. Assembled in the USA.
Well built – a heavy drill for bigger jobs.

I bought a 20 volt blower than trimmer so I thought why not fill out my tool kit with other 20 volt tools. I like Dewalt because the tools feel substantial which I hope translates to long life. I have too lighter battery drills but I wanted something with a little more power and this delivers. I don’t have to pull out the corded drill now when my smaller drills can’t do the job.

I like this Dewalt for heavy drilling because of the brush motor, I have a brushless one too but it does not fair well with big hole saws. This baby you better be hanging on when you use it
great hammer drill from Dewalt

Tool met my expectations. I have yet to be disappointed by Dewalt. I’ve already used the hammer tool to mount peg boards into my basement (foundation concrete), and to drill through thick masonry to run cable for outdoor security cameras. Just make sure you get what you need right away for drill bits.

I bought this new but it was obviously used and returned. It has scratches and dirt all over it, the box came opened and it didn’t have an instruction manual. Nope!
