Lithium Ion Batteries

Our DeWalt DCD760KL Review is packed with reasons why this model might just be the cordless drill for you. A key reason many people opt for this 18V drill is the Lithium Ion batteries. They can put out a lot of power without using up too much battery life. On top of that the batteries last a long time, and stay at maximum power until they stop, unlike Ni-Cad batteries (The only issue with that is that it can be hard to know how much charge you have left). 30 mins of charging can last you up to around 5 hours. And if that’s not enough for you, the kit comes with a spare battery pack (and the charger comes in the kit box!). Charge them both the night before a long day and you will be good to go.

Compact and Lightweight

The DCD760KL is compact and light, measuring 8.2″ and weighing only 4lbs (lighter than the similarly sized Dewalt Ni-Cad models, the DC970K-2 weighing an also quite light 5.2lbs for example). The reason for this is that the lithium-ion batteries tend to weigh less than the Ni-Cad packs. You will find it easy and comfortable to use for hours on end, and due to it’s size you should be able to fit this into most of the nooks and crannies around the home.

Sturdy and Powerful

Strong and powerful, the DeWalt DCD760KL review finds that this cordless drill is a well built piece of kit. Not that we would encourage it, but a busy drill will get its fair share of bumps and drops, and you want to know your drill is gonna survive in the real working world. Well you have nothing to fear with this model. It is made of strong stuff, and will put up with whatever you throw at it (within reason!). DeWalt know how to build a drill properly (A true American product to be proud of!) This comes across as well with how nicely balanced the drill is. The weight in well distributed throughout for ease of use and accurate drilling.

Versatile for Many Jobs

As well as having two speed settings, this model also has 17 clutch settings and an LED work light. Admittedly not ideal for a worksite or anything, but for the home hobbyist this drill has all you need. You’ll have no trouble fixing cabinets, drilling through wood or drywall, putting up shelves etc.

Peace of Mind

If you have any concerns before buying this drill, you may be comforted to know that it comes with a limited three day warrenty, 90 day money back guarantee and a year free service contract (two years on the batteries). So what more do you need to know? Check it out on Amazon and read through the reviews.

If you are looking for a slightly cheaper DeWalt, an excellent alternative is the DeWalt DC970K-2, if you are happy to forego the Lithium Ion batteries. Give it a look!
