Dewalt DCD771C2 Review 2017
The DCD771C2 is yet another cordless drill from my favourite brand Dewalt. It is priced at the mid-point of around $150 and gets some pretty amazing reviews by buyers at different websites. This is a very good product and buyers certainly have very high regard for the product once they have purchased and used it.
It is pretty obvious from the image above that this model is exactly in line with the typical Dewalt construction.

Detailed Review of the DCD771
For those of you who like more detail then please read on as I cover off what I believe to be the most important features in your buying decision.
Price & Value for Money
Let’s face it no Dewalt product is cheap but almost all of them are of very high quality. Buying a drill is like buying anything else really in that you get what you pay for. If you have read any other of my reviews you will know I am a huge fan of this brand and they have been producing and delivering quality tools for years.
This model is as good if not better than many of their products. We did get a chance to try this out and it simply feels good in your hand. You know instantly that this is a little power house and not one of those flimsy products. The power you get is as good as anything out there.
Now we know it has an average price of around $150 and that is not cheap, but when we consider the quality of this product then you are getting a very good tool that will last you for many years to come.
The 18V battery is still the most popular choice but most manufacturers are now improving that and going with the 20V option. In simple terms this just means that battery has slightly more power and will hold the charge for longer. The DCD771 model has gone with the more powerful battery. The battery pack is actually smaller than the older versions but packs quite a punch.
The good news is you get two batteries. That means you can work on your projects with one of them and have the other one on charge whenever you need to use it. As the battery only takes about 30 minutes to charge you should never have to wait that long.
There is a small LED light located just above the trigger and his helps illuminate any work area where you may be drilling or driving. It is a neat little feature and helps a lot.
Compact & Lightweight
We think it is great that you can have a drill that is not too heavy but still packs a punch. It is one of the best features about this particular model. Here is what one reviewer at Amazon said:

What a workhorse!
By AirborneDave on March 6, 2014
As a man who swears by DeWALT and has owned several battery variations of their drills, this one is quickly becoming my favorite. Extremely lightweight in comparison to the 18 volt models. The battery size is tiny but packs a huge punch.
Very Useful for Home Projects
If you do much work in and around the home, then this drill will be the only one that you will ever need. Now this is not a high end contractor drill, but is probably the very best for DIY people and for people who do a lot of home projects. It is powerful, yet compact for restricted work areas (like under a sink) and with two batteries, a charger and a carrying bag, it does make a nice little kit.
Our Verdict & Summary of the Dewalt DCD771CR
We have probably said it all already so will avoid repeating myself about this Dewalt model. Anyone who buys this drill will certainly not be disappointed and we have no hesitation in recommending this to any home project or DIY person. A good drill at a decent price that will never let you down.
