Featuring the latest compact hammer drill driver technology, the 2-speed Dewalt DCD795M1 motor delivers up to 2,000rpm at high setting and 600rpm in low setting. This is coupled with maximum impact rates of 34,000 and 10,200 beats per minute for high and low setting respectively in hammer mode. These are extremely efficient for any masonry work you might put the DCD795M1 to.
