Great drill. Easy to use right out of the box. More features than I know how to use.
I bought this drill kit during Labor Day weekend. I pulled it out 2 weeks ago to build a gate (I charged both batteries prior to using drill). I went through both batteries in 1.5 hrs and have been unable to charge since then. Worse performance I have ever seen.
This beautiful little powerhouse grabbed me
over a year ago and I continue to be amazed and in love with the versatility of the DCD771 1/2” cordless drill/driver. Always charged and always ready the DCD771 is seemingly, ready for any new task I invent: last week I purchased a 1” sharpening tool, inserted it in the drill/driver, and touched up my lawn mower blade. Later I removed the blade and completely sharpened it.
I also stir and mix paint, polish metal, wax and buff wood, and clean metal. However, the major function of my DCD771 is drilling and driving with projects. Changing drills and drivers is simple. The two power levels are nice.
Settings for the appropriate torque are easy and convenient and the trigger variable speed is a welcome feature. Although minor and have nothing to do with the overall efficiency of this machine, there are two items that could be addressed: 1. Clips or inserts could be installed
at the rear and below the grip so changing drivers could be more convenient.
2. The light on the DCD771 is useful, however,
I find it stays on too long and more importantly,
the barrel of the drill/driver casts a shadow that obscures vision in very low light conditions.
There you have it.
Would I buy DCD771 again? Without question.
I can and do recommend the DCD771 without reservation. Get one...or two and give the second to your significant other. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
We’ve had Dewalt drills in my family for as long as I can remember and this one is easily the best performing, longest lasting, and most reliable drill we’ve ever had. The battery life is great and the torque and efficiency is incredible. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
