Dewalt DCD960KL Question

Recommended Posts

They are the same drill, the DCD960 has a Hammer/Drill function, the DCD760 does not. If you see your self needing a drill to drill through brick or block, I'd shoot for the DCD960.

The DCD960 is just a drill / driver and not a hammer drill.

I just think the XRP drills are of better quality.

They have the metal chuck ETC but I'm not sure if the motors and gears inside are all the same.

Are the XRP drills better then the regular versions?

Sorry your correct, I got the models mixed up in my head, I had the DCD760's bigger brother in mind. The DCD775.

You have to plug a bunch of questions into your needs?

What are your daily usages going to be?

Weight?

Runtime?

Once you have a good idea of what your needs are, then you can best determine which drill will fill your needs. This might help.

JC, Thanks for the great reply.

I think I'll just go with the 960 for the extra money.

I was trying the 760 at Home Depot and I noticed a Metal Grinding noise when letting off the trigger from high speeds.

Is this noise normal?

Thanks Again..

Why does the 960 have a slower charger?

Also is the DCD970KL better with the hammer then just the drill/driver?

The 970 is cheaper and looks like the same drill.

Most Dewalt 18v Drills have a electric brake. That's most likely what your hearing. The DCD970 is the DCD960 with a hammer function. I'm not sure where you found the DCD960 for more than the DCD970, that should not be the case. If you think you will use the hammer function... then I'd go for the DCD970 especially if your getting it for less.  ::)

The charging takes longer because it's twice the size. DC9180 has double the cells over the DC9181 battery.
