Review of the DeWalt DCD990M2

Review of the DeWalt DCD990M2

Awesome torque! The work crew loves it which is about the highest power drill I could realize that I can get yourself a vehicle charger for.<br>

Very, very powerful, and the battery lasts forever. I have drilled at least 30 3/4" holes in hard pine (not soft fir) floor joists, plus lots of smaller holes and screw driving for a month, and this drill just keeps going. The battery is still at two bars (out of three). Very comfortable to use, and the light actually illuminates the work area, rather than leaving it in shadow as some drills (with the light above the trigger) do.<br>

The brushless design makes a shorter drill housing to allow for the drill to match into smaller spaces than its brushed cousins. The chuck is very nice, super easy to tighten and loosen yourself, plus the drill bit never slips inside.<br>

The clutch/torque limiter is not really a clutch; it is an electronic sensor that stops the motor when you reach the selected torque limit. It has a 1 to 11 range, but I have never gotten it to shut off at anything above 3. I think anything higher than 3 is probably for lug nuts on car wheels. Keep it below 4 and you should be fine.<br>

The Bad: Not really bad, but this drill is moderately heavy; you won't ever forget that it must be hanging through your belt. It isn't too much for drilling overhead, however it is not a lightweight.<br>
