My wife got this drill for me for my birthday the end of 2019. Straight out of the box the batteries had juice to run the drill. It does everything I need it to do. I've owned dewalt cordless tools for 15+ years now and the drill is the only thing that needed to be updated so far. Wouldn't buy any other brand. They've always worked when I needed them

Very Powerfull piece of equipment
I purchased this hammer drill kit over a year now and charged both batteries. So far l have only used one battery and the other was stored in the hard black plastic case. We to check on the battery and it was still fully charged bever dropped a volt stored over a year.
Now back to the hammer drill. This drill has so much power that is can out do an electric hammer drill with brushes. It just wont quite working on the job you put it on. I will buy this item again when l need a replacement.

The product works well, the only downside is that I got two 4ah batteries instead of 5ah batteries

Nice drill some minor issues
I bought this drill a few months ago to use as a more robust drill than my everyday one. I like the power but the Chuck loosens on easy jobs but stays tight when working with masonry or other material where the hammer action is needed. Works great with larger bits but the smaller ones 1/4" and below don't seat well in the Chuck and work loose quickly. Overall nice drill and will more than take on larger sized tasks but for smaller ones consider something like the atomic models or even drop to a 12V or black and Decker corded drill. It's not that hard to drill through sheetrock or into a wooden stud.

Have had this for about a year now. Hands down best cordless drill I’ve ever owned. Super powerful. Flys right through everything I put it to. Ratcheting chuck is awesome. And the 5.0ah batteries are always charged when I need them to be. Great tool.

can the dewalt dcd996p2 hammer drill be used as a regular drill also ?
J. D. on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yesm the Dewalt DCD996P2 is a hammer/drill driver
Just bought a brand new DCD996-p2 drill, however, ALL bits wobble, no matter how small or big the drill ( all brand new dewalt titanium bits) This is already my 2nd attempt in purchasing this item from different sources, and both presented the same problem. My original XRP-DCD970 type 1 never presented this problem until recently. It always ran TRUE. I do a lot of precision drilling and wobbling is not an option. Please Help.....?
