Dewalt DCD980M2 Review

Take your productivity levels to a whole new place with the Dewalt DCD980M2 drill driver. This is a cordless drill driver delivers consistent and low-end power wherever and whenever you need it through its three-speed full-metal transmission that matches the tool for faster application speed and improved runtime. It has a heavy duty 0.5-inch metal ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts that provide superior bit gripping strength. At only 10.6 pounds, you can carry the tool around if need be. It is powered by a Lithium-ion battery, saving you from the inconvenience of dangling extension cords that comes with corded tools. Additionally, the Lithium-ion battery gives you up to 33% more runtime than its equivalent with 3Ah batteries and longer life than other battery technologies. For drilling and fastening applications, its high power and efficient motor delivers 535 unit Watts out of max power. Working in poorly lit areas can be a worry, but not now that an LED work light with 20 seconds delay after trigger release is included.

For optimized precision when drilling, the drill has a 22 position adjustable torque control which means your work will be as professional as you make it. Tool safety is a concern for you and Dewalt too, and for that reason, a steel belt clip and a sturdy magnetic holder ensures stronger storage solutions. An ergonomic 360 degrees’ side handle gives you comfort and ease of control even in odd places. The product is sold with a one-hour charger, 18V MAX XR premium Li-ion batteries, a 360-degree side handle all inside the kit box which alleviates all the extra costs you might have to incur before you start working. Like all Dewalt products, it comes with a three years limited manufacturer’s warranty. The strength and speed of this Dewalt DCD980M2 drill make it a must-have power tool in your home improvement arsenal.
