I couldn't tell it's not brand new!
I'm an amateur, so light duty use with my others. Just hoping it holds up over time.
And I love the idea of reconditioning as opposed to ending up at the dump.

DeWalt tools ROCK
I bought one of these drills a few years ago, it was misplaced UGH I bought another one as the price and the need to have another QUALITY De Walt tool was needed. I can't say enough about the drill IT ROCKS!!! You can pay me now for a GOOD job and NOT have to pay me again for the same job done RIGHT!!
or a shoe maker in Spain told his son, I only sell GOOD BOOTS I can't afford to sell poor quality boots, my reputation rides on my BOOTS.. similar with a good quality DRILL I don't have to buy another one again for A LONG LONG TIME.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
