Overall Great Product
I am a normal do-it-yourselfer who has been making all kinds of things with drills my whole life. The one part of a drill that i never really liked was that you really couldnt torque down screws without stripping them. Thats where the impact drill came in for me. I can drive down screws off the surface of any project im working on without damaging the head of the screw. Some of the projects i make i need screws to go in a spot that i cant reach with a normal huge drill. The impact driver is sooooo compact and fits anywhere and it has a built in L.E.D light so you can work in dark corners and under things. The power that this gun packs is incredible, i can drive screws in at maybe 5% throttle and have no problem. Both of these products that i have yet to have a problem with pack a huge amount of power and i still havent killed either battery when using either of them. This is a great set and every homeowner should have it!!

I do a lot of handyman work.
These tools have more than enough power to eliminate the need to use corded tools. Makes all work a lot easier. Battery life is pretty good too.

drill impact driver kit
As a General contractor I have grown to rely on my tools to make me money as simple as that seems . I use my multiple Dewalt tools on a daily basis and when this drill set came out I had to have it .The impact driver alone is worth it's weight in gold. The two together offer ease of use because they do not weigh as much as their full size buddies.they are easy to put in your bags when you are working off ladders or in tight spaces. The lithium batteries will take time for most guys used to the standard 18 volt batteries as they will just stop working instead of the heads up you get from the others.For me this is a big draw back and i will find myself relying on the old style batteries. this is a drawback as they are heavier. I have not read other reviews but I am sure Dewalt's "engineers " knew this from the get go that this happens as they test all products before marketing it. I gave it a 5 star rating because of the Dewalt name but the Lithium battery need work

Awsume tool combo
I recently had to build a access ramp for my father to get into his house. It is very hard for him to watch us work (he so much wants to be able to do it) so my brother and I wanted to get the ramp built before he got home and so it would be easier for mom to get him in and out.
I purchased this combo to help finish my new garage but they came in very handy on the ramp. We used 3" screws and treated lumber. We used the drill for all the 5/8" holes and the impact driver for all the screws. We were able to use both the drill and the impact all weekend with out stopping to charge. We had to charge the two batteries several times but the 1/2 hr +- charge time never kept us from working. Both drills performed flawlessly. The carrying case came in handy to transport the drills, charger, chalk line, line level, gloves and safety glasses. I plan to have theses working for me for a very long time. Great product. We also spent the next Friday making a board walk and ramp to connect the back porch with the front. These were the only drills used.

Very strong and versatile
The combo is great and the betteries work in all my older model 18v Dewalt drills. Love the compact,powerful and long life batterries!!!!! Just need the 1/2 in dedicated impact gun to complete my cordless set.

I use both tools just about everyday. Would never be without the Impact. Both are very durable and have stood up to being left in the rain and quite a few falls. The new style batteries are lightweight and are what I expected.

Well worth the Wait!!
After having used very old drills for the last 10 years I got the opportunity to upgrade. I had seen these tools used time and time again on home Improvement shows and had always heard great things about Dewalt. I have not been disappointed. That are everything they claim to be and more. Tons of power and batttery life with great performance. I high recoomend them to any handyman or home owner. their price was comparable to other brands and only took a few weeks to recieve.

Drill and Driver both heavy duty, great tools.
This is a great pair of tools. !/2" drill drilled a 3/4" hole in 1/4" plate with relative ease. The driver requires a light hand due to its power. I think the battery life is above average and the charge rate is reasonable. These tools are worth the wait as they are often on backorder. Mine took 5 weeks, but Northern Tool kept me informed of the order progress. This drill and driver can take all the abuse I can give it. Buy with confidence.

Stands Up to Tough Use!
I am a Regional Sales Rep for a Manufacturer whose products(made with aluminum) are assembled with screw fansteners and also require a lot of drilling. This DeWalt Drill and Impact Driver see a lot of tough use when training my Dealers. When I travel to many states to do the training I need dependable tools I can count on time after time. Because of their compact size the Drill & Driver can be used in tight places and deliver a punch. I would recomend this Dewalt Model# DCK265L to anyone needing reliable tools in the field.
