7 BEST CORDLESS DRILL SETS REVIEW

DEWALT DCD980M2

20V MAX XR Li-Ion Premium 3-Speed Drill/Driver Kit
See price

Quick Overview  

If you are concerned about power, efficiency and durabilty, then this is definitely your tool. There are just a lot to be loved on this drill. Let’s start with the power.

If you have owned a couple of drills, you probably must have experienced that annoying resistance that comes up when drilling on concrete walls or hard metals. That is not the case in this drill. During my checks, I noticed this drill has been specifically built to handle the toughest tasks and light tasks as well. Long inches screws were driven really fast and easy deep into a very hard concrete wall using this drill. Everything that was thrown at it during the few weeks of use literally got screwed! This guy packs a punch.

The setting is amazing. You can set it for soft task like screwing tiny plastic switch onto the wall etc. Setting “1” gives you a high torque but low speed. With this, as soon as a screw sits properly, the drill stops. Amazing isn’t it. This is not a drill that lets you strip your screw. Never.

For compact drilling, you have settings 2 & 3. Setting “2” gives you medium torque and speed. While setting “3” gives you a low torque but high speed. Add the other 21 settings used for lighter tasks, and you have found a reason to ditch your old drills.

A complete kit comes with 1(one) DCD980 drill/driver, 1(one) One-hour charger, 2(two) 20V MAX XR premium lithium-ion batteries, 1(one) 360 degree side handle, 1(one) Kit box
