DeWalt (dcd771c2) Drill/Driver Kit Review

I just purchased the DeWalt (DCD771C2) 20V MAX cordless drill driver. I needed a driver with slightly more power than what I currently had in my shop. Frankly I had some bolts that were stuck in a miter saw stand from the factory and I needed something to shake them loose. This little drill driver worked on 2 of the 4 bolts. Sometimes you just need a little extra help.

There are several things I like about this little drill driver. It’s small and lightweight and can fit into tight space. It has a two speed transmission and of course a keyless chuck. Because it is a 1/2 inch chuck, I can use some of the bits from my shop, but I have run into a problem that sometimes the chuck doesn’t grip the bit like it should and the bit will get stuck in a hex bolt. The handle on this driver is very comfortable. Battery capacity is OK. I will probably buy a second battery so that one is charged at all times.

Power drills save a lot of time with screwdriver bits. Also, fewer blisters when you have a stuck bolt as I did.

The DeWalt (dcd771c2) kit comes with the driver/drill, a Lithium ion battery pack, a compact charger, and a contractor quality bag.

Good power. Batteries have adequate life. Great for a handyman or DIYer. Excellent for home use. LED is bright in those dark spaces.

Built in light
  • Batteries hold a great charge
  • Perfect for small jobs
  • Nice feel, well balanced
  • Need more time with it to see if the chuck is an issue

Some customers report receiving two batteries while others report only receiving one. And there are varying accounts of what is described on the Amazon site. I received only one battery in my order, so make sure you pay attention to the description and what you receive.
