The Dewalt DC100KA 18V 1.3Ah Ni-Cd Cordless Combi Drill

First impressions of this kit is that it all seems very durable without being to heavy. The drill has a rubberised handle which aids the grip and is well balanced and comfortable when in use. The DC100 comes with a keyless chuck which makes bit changes easy and speedy.

The DC100 has 17 torque settings as well as a hammer mode, it also has 2 speed range settings but the speed can also be controlled via the trigger, making it a powerful drill. The drill also has an LED which illuminates the area you are drilling when the drill is in use.

The motor of the DC100 is fan cooled and the brushes are replaceable. The drill comes with 2 x 1.3Ah Ni-Cd batteries, along with a 1 hour charger. Having multiple batteries is a great advantage and prevents work from grinding to a halt while re-charging takes place.

The DC100 is flexible; it can be used for screwdriving, drilling or hammer drilling.

In terms of value for money, this drill retails at around £180, which for a good quality, durable and powerful cordless drill is good value for money. Screwfix are currently selling this package for £99.99 which is exceptional value for money.
