Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot handle torque, unwinds As of right now i have 77 cordless dewalt tools and 23 batteries, so please spare me the simpleton junk of somehow im doing something wrong because Im not, i know tools and this is either a defective unit or a poor design. I bought brand new and when using today for the first time, I was trying to use a hole saw to cut metal. I had the clutch in the drill mode- so clutch is turned off, I need full power. When under a load it backs itself back to number 15 on the clutch, and then begins to slip so the drilling stops. At first I thought i bumped it, so i fiddled with it, and tried over and over and could watch it immediately slip back to 15 and the clutch would stop the drilling. I got my hole drilled, but had to hold the clutch with one hand and drill with the other. I will be contacting the warranty department, but I expect some results here, I dont have time to buy tools that do not carry out the single function they were built for - a drill should be expected to drill. If I wanted a drill that makes a better hammer than a drill, Im sure there are plenty at harbor freight. And dewalt doesnt need to ask so many questions at the end of the review, if you have extra time make sure that tools function as one would expect.

It's got plenty of torque; I've driven 3" screws into 2X4s with no problem. I've used a 3" hole saw with it with no problem.

Does the DCD790 Drill use same battery as the DCD791 and 792

Asked by: Jeff
Hi Jeff, Yes. All of these are comparable with ANY 20V MAX battery as well as the 20/60V FlexVolt batteries. It’s an extremely flexible system. Hope this helps!

I use 12 DeWalt drill/drivers, some old some newer, in my theatre scenic studio; while we always have batteries in the chargers, we also leave them in the tool without any issues or drain of the batteries.

Does this unit perform well/ long time with K-Drill ice auger?

Asked by: Jr
Bought mine about 20 months ago. This was my second one. Needed drills with the higher 2000 RPM vs. other portable drills. I am building an airplane and have thousands of holes to drill in aluminum for rivets. The higher RPM works better when drilling thru aluminum. Also use to install and remove screws. Love the adjustable torque settings , built in light and light weight! Use both drills every day since I have to drill pilot holes and then final size holes and two drills really speed the process. Batteries last several days between charges. Absolutely love this drill. Holds up well, very reliable. Batteries and charger work well. Highly recommend this drill
