Nice price! 👌🏼
Want it but can’t justify it. Have some heat
Good price and an epic drill. Only diy myself but have this and it can be brutal
Cracking drill, good job it comes with a handle attachment!
Is this the best model/ power they sell for 18v? I know they sell a few different models

I've been looking at this for a while, cant really justify it but I do have the DCD795 which has done everything I needed, you dont happen to have experiece with them both by any chance and if it's worth upgrading? I know it's a much higher spec but I always assumed the DCD996 would be better for bigger masonry work for example but I do have the 18v large sds drill (cant remember the model) so it fulfills this need.....

If you want to do masonry work and already have a combi I would suggest buying an sds drill mate 🏻
Not as good as last week's offer from Buyaparcel.com, but in the absence of a time machine have some heat.
Fantastic drill
The 795 seems DeWalt s most popular. I also have a dewalt sds but it's about six inches longer so unless you're really doing a lot of masonry it's great to only have one much more compact drill that unless i was stich drilling can cope with anything
I have the 795 and the 996 (Damn HUKD's fault) the 795 is a great drill and perfect for most DIY tasks but the 996 is awesome, far and away the best cordless drill I've owned. It has drilled through everything I've asked of it without breaking a sweat.

Not sure about the specific model you are quoting, but I originally bought a 2 speed dewalt drill with a plastic chuck as it came with a 4Ah battery. Found it awkward to use so got the DCD996 (for over £120). I would say that it's a significant step up and well worth the asking price.
The 2 speed model seemed to have fast and really fast speed settings. That is fine for drilling but found it difficult to use as a driver and I had lots if rounded off screw heads! The DCD996 is much better in that respect.
Other people's experience may differ though, and maybe I've just got a fat trigger finger
I'm a new at DIY, what is the best battery to buy? Can you buy a non branded one?

You can buy non dewalt batteries but I wouldn't personally. If you choose to, there's a brand called Floureon, they're around half the price and get well reviewed and recommended by tradesmen on various Dewalt forums.

I'd suggest THIS one.
It's a faster charger than the 113 model that is often bundled with their kit, but isn't as bulky or expensive as others in their range.
Check out the battery prices on that link too.

Ideally you should have at least 2 batteries, so that you have one charged ready if one goes flat.
The size of battery you choose is going to be down to how much you use the tool whilst away from a power supply.
2ah will give you a good work time for light work and around the home.
4ah might suit you better if you're unable to charge your battery whilst at the job location.
There are other sizes available to suit most needs. The larger capacity batteries are naturally physically bigger and potentially somewhat heavier.

Amazing, thank you. I'll purchase the charger and the 2ah battery you mentioned and see how I get on. Will usually be in the home.

Happy to help.
The 2ah is available as a twin pack from powertoolworld, on offer at the moment. Considering the likes of Screwfix charge £40 for one, it's a no-brainer.

I don't work for them, but I'll certainly endorse them.

Thanks, really appreciate it. Does this come with three pin charger, sorry if it sounds silly as I cant see it being mentioned in their website. I have got 2 x 4.0ah batteries already.

Your like the little HUKD devil in my ear. In the middle of some restorations and I have noticed I have to either take the screwdriver bit out if the driver or the drill bit out from the drill to use the counter sink! Fag packet maths tells me I could do with another machine!

I do have the bigger SDS drill already, so I'm not sure I really need the upgrade for the masonry work so cant use that as an excuse unfortunately. Damn HUKDs thou, cause I have been looking at this for a bit. Currently on the look out for the 18v Router and the 18v palm sander to come up on offer too which i could probably benefit more from!

You could, the impact driver is a fabulous addition to your tool box

One thing to note is you can't turn the impact function off, you can put it on setting 1 (out of 3) and it won't impact until it has to work a little harder to screw. I don't use it for smaller tasks like shelves etc.
