DWD115K Main Benefits

The Motor

The DWD115K Drill powers through tough jobs like a pro with ease, all thanks to the powerful 8 Amp motor that delivers 0-2,500 rpm speed, even for heavy-duty applications.

Keyless Chuck

. The unique feature of this drill in particular is the 3/8" all-metal, ratcheting, keyless chuck that makes a better bit retention possible.

Tough & Durable

The drill is strategically designed with an all ball bearing construction that makes it durable. The Drill comes in a carrying case to keep it safe while carrying it outside.

Our Verdict

This is a very high quality corded drill at a sensible price. It has lots of drilling power, and actually much more than many household projects will ever need.

At full speed, it takes 2 seconds or so to wind down, so this might not be the best choice of tool for any delicate work you might have, or even something as simple as tightening a loose screw.

It is however an excellent choice for any type of drilling task that you need to do.
