Purchased this to drill holes through the top plate of a wall from above. Was able to drop a 1-3/8" auger through the two 2-bys without any trouble at all. Have used a number of times through studs in tight places, works great. The head design is nice and very compact. The drill isn't short, which I actually appreciate as it gives some leverage to hang onto in tight spots.
I bought this tool in January and after light service i.e. turning screws, the rings holding the chuck came off. I've used this tool for a total of maybe 1.5 hours. Lame.
I've been using this tool a lot since I purchased it but there seems to be a design flaw as I see in other comments that the Low speed (1) does not function for other people as well.
It's about a month old and I've used it several times for automotive use. It takes off odd angle small bolts and most in tight spaces. Its part of the Flex and came with a 4AH battery. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Worked great...the first time, but I only got about a half dozen uses out of this product in six months time. I am a busy electrical contractor and I bought this for the "every once in a while" tight spot to drill a hole for wiring. and it burnt up with a simple 3/4" bit. I personally love Dewalt tools, and this doesn't sway me, but wont purchase another one of these.
This is not a particularly strong drill, nor should it be expected to be. It is great for holes 1/2” and under and screws in tight places. I really like the built in 1/4” chuck within the chuck. My main use for it is driving pocket hole screws and this feature makes bit insertion really easy. I do wish it had a bit more power, but it performs how I expected it to when I purchased it so I can’t complain. I did burn out my first one drilling too large of a hole, but the warranty process was quick and easy to get it repaired.
Now that it is out of warranty, if it dies I would definitely buy one again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I only use this on a rare occaision but when it's needed it steps up to the job! I won't leave the office if this isn't in my van. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
