About Dewalt Drills
Famous for making powerful, rugged power tools, American tool company DeWalt is a must see manufacturer for professionals and hobbyists alike. This category is devoted to one of the most widely used power tools: electric drills. From wood to concrete, no matter what material you’re dealing with, the DeWalt drills you’ll discover here are sure to put a hole in it!
The four types of DeWalt drills
Drilling down into the details of the DeWalt drills category requires us to examine the four different drill types you’ll find in our virtual tool shop. Let’s start off with the common electric drill, the one all DIY enthusiasts will want to have. These drills are great at drilling small holes through wood and other lightweight materials, plus installing small fasteners, thanks to the clutch system. With an activated clutch, the drill won't go above the set resistance torque. This prevents an overcranking drill breaking or stripping delicate screws and other fasteners.
The second kind of DeWalt drill you’ll find here are impact drivers. An impact driver has a similar resistance-based mechanism to a clutch operated drill. However, when an impact drill meets the set resistance, it doesn't cut out but instead begins a distinctive 'bumping' mechanism that adds extra torque on the rotation axis when needed. This taps the screw forward, letting you drill into the material efficiently and easily in situations where an ordinary drill would slip out. An impact drill is suitable for larger screws that need to be tightly drilled into material like wood.
Where impact drills tap gently, hammer drills knock with vigour. They’re excellent for punching small holes into concrete and other tough materials that a regular drill or impact drill couldn't handle.
For the hardest kind of work, you'll want to take a look at our selection of demolition hammers. Also known as pneumatic drills or jackhammers, this kind of DeWalt drills are for smashing through the thickest, bulkiest, materials.
There are two types of demolition hammers that you'll find among this edit. There are the truly huge hammers that you can use to break up pavement and concrete foundations, and the smaller drills with chisel-shaped heads that can be used to strip away concrete. Construction workers and builders who need their own tools will be well served by picking one of these tools up. Just remember to use ear protection when you're working with these powerful machines.
All about power
Most of the DeWalt drills you’ll find in this edit are cordless, and can be powered by the latest Dewalt batteries. Trading a little power for flexibility, these machines are fantastically versatile and are brilliant for drilling at odd angles or in limited space. The corded DeWalt drills on the other hand are their most powerful machines, and you won’t be let down by them cutting out mid way through a long drilling job.
So you’ve added your ideal DeWalt drill to your basket, now where to find those all-important spares and accessories? For spare batteries, carry cases and more, check out our DeWalt tools category!
