DEWALT DC720KA Cordless 18-Volt Compact Drill/Driver

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

Drilling and woodworking is a popular pastime and profession for men and women around the world, and it is important for a number of these people to have the absolute top of the line equipment. While others will settle for anything that will insert a screw or put a hole in hood, some know that to complete their work with the kind of quality that they desire, they need a truly top of the line product.

One such product, the Dewalt DC720KA Cordless 18-Volt Compact Drill/Driver, is among the best in its class. The drill, at $403.38 can be double or triple the price of similar drills, but is among the most advanced on the market. It is a battle between price and capabilities with this drill, and you must balance whether you want the extra technologies, or if you can opt for a cheaper drill without them.

The drill is battery-powered, and provides 18 volts of power. These is two volts higher than similar wireless products, and this increased power can make a difference in your projects. Batteries are the NiCAD cell type, and are both included and required for this wireless drill.

It is a high-powered accessory that can complete a high range of fastening and drilling products, and features dual-range, variable speed control capabilities. It has a padded grip and a sturdy kit box, and features a motor than can spin at up to 1,700 revolutions per minute. It has a ½ inch ratcheting chuck that will reduce slippage, and its fine handling allows you to navigate around projects of various sizes. The drill, with a flashy yellow design, will be a welcome addition to your tool area, and will allow you to complete the projects that you require, all if you are willing to attack the slightly hefty price tag.
