Our dewalt impact drills are awesome. They drive in 3/4 lags no prob.
I happened to be searching & stumbled upon this poll/thread from 3-4 years ago that needed to have an update for any future searchers that might be interested in cordless impact driver for their heep ( or whatever else) ;
I cannot stop drooling over the beauty below since I saw it first this past Halloween or Thanksgiving. I didn't know it existed & it jetted to the top of my 'want this tool badly' list after searching the awesome videos reviewing the thing. I will have this soon but regearing comes first....it's been tough not hitting the Buy Now button for this in the 1/2" with 2 batteries variant immediately, tho....
I'm in the same boat, only my batteries aren't completely dead - they still hold a charge for like 3 minutes. My Dewalt was good to me for a couple years and started craping out. Don't know what I'll get next. been mostly using a small cord drill for things - works way better except for the cord part.ALL 4 of my Dewalt batteries are dead. My drill is about 6 years old and the cordless circular is around a decade. I'm, thinking about the time I buy new batteries the drill and/or saw are gonna grenade. That's how things typically work out for angrysam.
Word I'm hearing is Dewalt ain't worth much these days. That true?
So who should I get a kit from? I'll want a drill and circular at a minimum. Cordless sawzall would be nice for chasing neighbor kids on the Harley. 'Splain yer thoughts iffin you get an extra minute.
I wouldn't buy Dewalt....

This is my Co-Workers tools.....Battery blew up, not while changing!! He was driving and another driver stopped him to tell him the back of the truck was on fire! I use Makita and haven't had any issues. They've lasted longer then most all my co-worker drill/impact/saws. I'm sure any lithium ion based device could blow up....
