dewalt dcd985 20v max piece of crap


Recommended Posts

There is really no major electronics inside the 20v max batteries, it's not the battery that's holding you back.


The Drill is not burnt out, it's the electronic package inside the drill telling you that you are pushing the drill to hard. The electronic's shut the tool down so you don't abuse it.


Bosch, Milwaukee, Ridgid, others, and now Dewalt are putting electronic's inside the tools to prevent you from damaging the tool/battery from mis/over use. If you've noticed tool blog review's lately, they have changed the way they review runtime. They let the tool rest after so many holes, before they go at it again.

I've heard that some of the first launch were programmed conservatively to be safer? I have heard that this is no longer the case, and that they are being programmed to allow the user to work the tool harder before shut-down. Again, this is a rumor and maybe someone else on here can confirm that?
