Dewalt DCD796P1 Review

This lightweight DCD796 combi drill from Dewalt features a brushless motor for longer battery life, with its small design its perfect for tight spaces.

The Dewalt DCD796P1 compact drill hammer combi employs brushless technology that delivers up to 30% more power than its predecessor (DCD795) and even more efficiency. Its design is optimized for use in confined places, being lightweight and compact. It is a multi-application tool with Drill Driver and Hammer feature.  Additionally, it has two speed all metal transmission for longer runtime and more tool durability. Its 15 position torque control gives you consistent screw driving into a wide variety of materials. Its intelligent trigger design and balance handle total tool control over to you so that you can focus primarily on delivering professional work.

Your comfort is a concern for Dewalt, and for that, they embed an ergonomic design with a rubber grip so that you can have the best of it while at it. The drill has improved the flow of air to the motor to keep it cooler and provide more power. A 3 mode (High, Medium and Low) LED work light with a high output gives 20 minutes’ delay, lighting up your dark or confined workplace. Li-ion battery packs allow for marvellous insertion and removal. The device is part of the intelligent XR Lithium-ion series designed for efficiency and swift performance.  The drill length has as well been reduced to 190mm for an even more compact feel. Storage solutions have never been stronger than now, with a steel belt and hook to keep your tool safe. With a Li-ion battery pack that enables superior mounting and unmounting of the battery. The multi-voltage carrier can be used with 10.8V,14.4V, and 18V battery packs as well. Its package is inclusive of one battery pack with a charge indicator, a multi-voltage charger, a magnetic bit holder, a belt hook and a Tstak heavy-duty kit box. Cordless convenience and brilliant performance what this tool promises to deliver, right from its first impression.
