Dewalt DCD760KL Review

Dewalt DCD760KL is an 18 volt cordless drill with the long lasting lithium ion batteries (DC9181) which can be fully charged in 30 minutes, these batteries is also compatible with other Dewalt 18v power tools. The lightweight design (4 lbs) and compact size (8.2 inch) surely minimizes the chance of user fatigue and you have the ability to use the battery drill in tight places such as under kitchen sinks. This Dewalt power tool have a dual speed option (0-500/0-1700 rpm), so it can be used both on low speed tasks such as larger holes and hard materials, and for high speed tasks such as smaller holes and screw-driving. The LED light in front ensures that you drill on the right place, especially in dark spaces.

Who is the Dewalt DCD760KL for?

This cordless drill from Dewalt is perfect if you are a handyman that does most of the work in and around the house yourself. The size, weight and power of this 18v drill makes it suitable for different tasks such as over your shoulder work, drilling holes in tight places and more “normal” tasks like screw-driving. I wouldn’t recommend this drill to construction workers and carpenters if they were only going to buy one cordless drill, as it doesn’t have a hammer function. For professionals I rather recommend the Dewalt DCD970KL with hammer function makes it easier to drill in concrete and masonry. It is no problem to drill in those materials with the DCD760KL, it just take a little bit more time and patience.


This 18v drill comes with two lithium ion batteries. These are long lasting batteries, so you can go on and on for a long time. When you need to charge the battery, you just take the spare battery of the charger and replace it with the empty one. If you forgot to charge the spare one, just take a 30 minute coffee break while you charge the battery. That’s right; it takes no more than 30 minutes to charge an empty battery to full capacity.

The weight (4 lbs) makes it suitable for drilling holes over your shoulders, the light weight eliminates user fatigue, or at least you can continue a lot longer, the compact size of 8.2 inch is perfect for confined spaces.

The big 1/2 inch chuck gives you more options regarding drills and bits. You can use big dimension drills. Is the DCD760KL strong enough for big drills? Yes, this is a power tool and one of the best, and most powerful cordless drills.

Have a dual speed option. The 0-500 rpm for big holes and low speed and the 0-1700 rpm option for smaller holes and high speed. With the 17 torque options, there isn’t a project that is too big for this electric drill.

The LED light ensures that you don’t miss your spot, and drill on the wrong places (who haven’t done that).


This cordless drill doesn’t have a hammer function. With a hammer drill it is much easier to drill in materials such as concrete and masonry, though it is no problem at all with the DCD760KL, it just takes a little bit more time.

No battery indicator. You can’t actually know for a fact when the battery is empty before you actually experience lack of power. A good advice is to always have the extra battery fully charged.

18v is too much for small tasks. If you only do small projects around your house, I much rather recommend the 12v Black & Decker LDX112C – less power but longer lasting batteries and it is the best cordless drill for the money.
