The DCD790 is the first driver using DeWALT's all new brushless technology and works far more efficiently compared to brushed motors and provides significantly more Runtime in a smaller, cooler running cordless power tool. Conventional brushed motors create friction which generates heat and slows the motor down. The new brushless motor design eliminates friction allowing the tool to run longer between charges. In Addition, a brushless motor controls energy transfer efficiently within the tool. 20V MAX* XR brushless motor power tools give you more runtime. Get more done.
Green indicates
electronic transfer within the tool. This allows the tool to run longer between charges.
Red indicates friction caused by brushes on conventional motors. This slows the motor down and generates heat.
Professionals need a battery for their power tools that can work as long as they do on the job site! The new XR™ Li-Ion batteries with fuel gauge offer best in class runtime and improved cold weather performance, and are fully compatible with all 20V MAX* tools. DEWALT's Premium XR™ Lithium Ion batteries pack maximum runtime in a lightweight design. Touting a 3-LED Fuel Gauge System, the batteries allow immediate feedback on the state of charge. Furthermore, there is no memory effect and virtually no self-discharge, resulting in less downtime. Overall, XR™ Li-Ion batteries with fuel gauge provide 33% more capacity over the standard packs.
The DEWALT BRUSHLESS Driver will feature Fuel Gauge Battery Packs. The batteries have three green LED lights that indicate charge level. A recessed push button design allows for durability and ease of use. By pushing this button, you will be able to check the amount of charge left in the battery before and after an application. 3 lights indicate a 100%-51% charge, two lights indicate a 50% to 26% charge, and one light indicates the pack is approximately 25% charged or less. These fuel gauge packs are fully interchangeable with existing 20V MAX* tools.

great drill, great price

Love the speed variation and power. The lightweight is a big improvement over the older models. And the longer battery life keeps you working longer. Will get a couple more of these soon. The service and price can't be beat at Factory Authorized.

Compact Drill

For non-commercial use, so far, outstanding performance and light weight. Feel solid, not perfect but nothing is, it is as closed as one can get.

Replaced an old Makita with this so just to have a 1/2 inch chuck and keyless, with a light, fuel gauge on batteries, stands up by itself, lithium batteries, are all GREAT features for me. I bought the flashlight that matches it also and keep one battery on it and use the space left in the case to store bits, etc. Haven't used it yet but appears to be a great drill.

Great Outfit

I haven't had this drill kit too long, but it seems to be top notch. This is my second DeWalt drill, and the first that is brushless and with lithium batteries. This should serve me well for a long time! The features are great.

Great product.

It's a great powerful quality product but the hard storage case lacks any space for drill bits and small accessories.

Light weight eazy to use in tight spaces

Great cordless drill. Light weight long lasting battery. Doesn't sound like a conventional brush motor but lots of power.
