roadhog96 Posted January 3, 2011 Report Share Posted January 3, 2011 Just got the Drill/Driver for Christmas. Doing some homework on it to see if it's as good as I have heard. Curious why it wasn't designed with a belt clip. I've seen pictures of the DC720 with and without a belt clip. Supposedly the DC760 is the same as the DC720 only difference I can see is the length of the docking base for the batteries. I would have thought the DC760 would have the clip seeing how it is the newer version. All the new 12V tools show a belt clip. I'm not hung up on belt clips but if your working on a ladder and need both hands what do you do with the drill? Some of the other brands out there have belt clips, why not the Dewalt DC760? Also, the compact batteries that came with this drill are the new Phosphate Li-on right? The DC760 drill is rated at 350 UWO, the DC720 is rated at 410 UWO. Is this because of the batter sizes they came with? If the DC760 had a XRP Li-on battery would it have a higher UWO rating. Speaking of UWO rating, why does Dewalt use this type of rating? Most other manufactures are rating in inch. lbs. How can you do a comparison? With a plastic sleeve instead of metal, will the 0-500 drive handle running in 3 1/2" deck screws or will it be too much strain on this design. I know Dewalt has some drill/drives with all metal gear cases but they are not considered compact. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
