Here's a quick look at the specs, features, pros, and cons of the DeWalt DCD995M2 hammer drill/driver. This information was excerpted from a tool test in the Spring 2015 issue of Tools of the Trade. The main story contains an overview plus runtime and power test data for all tools tested.
Battery: 18 volts; 4.0 Ah
Battery gauge: 3 bars; on battery
Weight (pounds): 4.76; with handle 5.06
Rpm: 0-450; 0-1,300; 0-2,000
Hammer Bpm: 0-7,650; 0-22,100; 0-34,000
Other Features: Brushless motor; electronic clutch; LED headlight; 7 1/8-inch side handle; belt hook; onboard bit holder
Price: Kit $299; bare tool $146
Includes: Tool; 2 batteries; charger; compact plastic case
Country of origin: Tool China; battery Malaysia
Performance: Rated very good under heavy duty uses and a top-tier performer overall. Fourth in runtime. (See comparison tables in Main Story)
Comments: Very strong and fast tool with a brushless motor capable of powering through tough challenges, sometimes even in third gear.
Pro: Three-speed transmission provides two power gears instead of one for high torque and faster application speeds. Belt hook mounts to either side of tool. Free-spinning ring at the end of the chuck minimizes friction damage to adjacent surfaces.
Con: Electronic clutch action not entirely predictable. It shuts off the motor at its preset limit but the force required seems to differ with the rpm. Soft-start takes a little getting used to. Short side handle requires extra muscle when using big bits.
