Our Verdict on the Dewalt DC970k-2

After using the Dewalt my overall verdict is that this drill is brilliant value for money and is extremely durable lightweight and comfortable to use. With its compact design it will fit into tight spaces making it an excellent companion to have on any job. It has a dual speed range, 17 clutch settings and a max power output of 380 watts, which means you can easily tackle almost every d.i.y project you can dream of in your home. For any Tradesman i would recommend buying the kit instead of the drill as a seperate unit. For the main reason the kit comes with two batteries which would be a must have on site with the Dewalts 60 minute charge time.

Final Rating : 9/10
