This has to be the best drill I have ever used bar none. Another top quality tool from dewalt as we all now seem to aspect. When I first picked the drill up was so light weight with the 2.0 battery from dewalt my first thought was this isn't going to be very good. It must be the new brushless motor that gives it the lightweight and power because there is no length in the tool it's so compact it's unreal. After playing with it for a while I sticked a 4.0 battery from dewalt on it to see what it was like and the tool still didn't have anyway weight to it so I was amazed.
Overall the tool is quality and is worth the asking price from dewalt considering you get a 3 year full warranty for a professional tool. You can definitely tell there is more power with the brushless motor instead of brushed motors normally used.
For a 2.0 battery I must say I was very impressed with the run time considering it is a slim pack.
Used it mostly for drilling 25mm holes on cls timber but for the testing drilled 40mm holes with a Fostner bit with ease.
Do not put off because it's a compact and if I'm being honest this will beat most FULL size drills out there without any question.
If you don't have one get out and buy one now because you're missing out big time!

This is a very good drill. I was sceptical because it is so small and very light I worried it would pack no punch after my Bosch. I'm happy to say I was wrong and it packs a good punch! Easy to use, light in weight and good control and access as its so small. Not so good is the battery slap, you slam it into the housing and its not the tightest of grip hence the slap. Annoyingly the helpful light stays on for 20 seconds after trigger is realised, why? It just drains the battery. The box is Ok but little or no room for extras such as bits etc.
