Very happy with the battery life and the performance of the drill. Looking forward to purchasing other DeWalt tools using the same battery. I already have the right angle drill also that I bought with this drill. Very happy with that also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better deal than the 791 I spent a lot of time debating between the 791 and the 796 reading countless reviews of both. The 791 is clearly more popular based on the quantity of reviews. Ultimately, I couldn’t decide and bought both. I’m glad I did. The 791 I received had something loose rattling around in the chuck but didn’t seem to effect performance. I had read that the chuck may be looser on the 796 due to the hammer operations. What I found was the opposite. The chuck on the 796 was rock solid. I was also worried about the weight of the 796 and the bigger size. As you can see by the attached pictures, the weight differential is minimal and the the 796 is only about 9/16 longer than the 791. The other thing I likes about the 796 is that in the kit I got, it had the larger 4AH battery and the charger charges the battery twice as quick. In all, I couldn’t be happier with the 796 and the 791 went back to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good drill Just bought this yesterday, and it preformed well, despite its first use not being it's intended purpose. Let me explain: I needed some brown sugar for some pulled pork, but unfortunately, it was rock solid due to the bag being left open. Sensing a use for my new drill, I put it to work. On hammer mode, It drilled right through the hardened brown sugar, which let me actually use it. 10/10 would recommend this drill.

I want to buy a drill for multi-purpose home usage. Which one would you recommend? impact drill (DCD791) or hammer drill (DCD796) ?

Asked by: shelly
Hi Shelly, Depends on your needs. Here are some examples of what each of the models do. Drill/Driver: Drills holes and a fastener driver for screws, nuts and small bolts. Hammer drill: is a percussion drill or impact drill, is a power tool used chiefly for drilling in hard materials. It is a type of rotary drill with an impact mechanism that generates a hammering motion.

what is the differants in a hammer drill & just a , my grandson works in a car body shop& needs a cordless drill for bolts
Asked by: glenda
A hammer drill, is a drill that has a hammer wheel that impacts the rotor mechanism to create a high amount of torque for things like lug nuts or lug bolts. The regular driving setting is the drive system simply pushing the rotor in a certain direction.
