These dewalt drills are short in length so to me I classify them as compact. I also look at brushless all being on the same level. So I would compare it to the fuel gen 2 because its their top end models no?

Impact wise yes but Dewalt has more levels of premium drills than Milwaukee. The gen 2 Milwaukee drill is comparable to the Dewalt DCD995, the brushless hammer drill.

Hmmm. Well as much as I like my Milwaukee that new dewalt stuff looks nice but I don't know if I will like the way it drills. My buddy as a dewalt impact and I never liked it

I don't use my impact for drilling, I carry the compact which handles mostly everything and when I need the extra power I have the big boy hammer drill. Interestingly enough I have an m12 fuel hammer drill that is maybe 1/4" longer than the Dewalt 20v hammer.

No. Being brushless or not speak to whether it's basic or high-end unit. Some models are compact models (lighter and smaller), others are heavy duty.

 

In Dewalt you have (choosing the non-hammer models):

 

Compacts

DCD771 (basic)

DCD780 (medium)

DCD790 (BL)

DCD791 (BL rev 2)

 

Heavy Duty

DCD980

DCD990 (BL)

 

The 980 will blow away all the compacts (for power), but I prefer a compact for most day-to day uses.

Disagree. The DCD995 caught up to the Gen1 FUEL model, the Gen 2 FUEL has leaped ahead again, and caught up to Makita / Metabo's top models.

I just did a review on it last night, and will upload in the next week or so. It's pretty sweet, I'm very impressed by its size / form factor.

It's impressive how so much power comes out of that smaller drill, I wonder if it's smaller than the m12 fuel drill now

Are you talking about Gen 2 FUEL? It's still a bigger/heavier drill than the M12 FUEL, though they're about the same length.

 

Here's a summary for everyone (shortest to longest, drill driver version (not hammer)). These could be a millimeter or two off.

 

M18 BL Compact - 175mm

M18 Compact      -  185mm

M12 (3/8")            - 185mm

M18 FUEL Gen 2 - 190mm

M12 FUEL            - 193mm

M18 FUEL Gen 1 - 201mm

 

Sorry for going off-topic/Dewalt.
