DEWALT DCD771C2 will give you one of those instances that you have high expectations. To your surprise, it surpasses those expectations. You have never carried out those do it much easier tasks than you will do after getting the DEWALT DCD771C2.

Some critics will complain of the carry bag and say it would have been a plastic casing, but I do not see anything to complain. Let us have a look at some of the great features of this drill.


When it comes to fitting in tight areas, you need the compactness of the DEWALT DCD771C2. It is also lightweight ensuring you have no aching muscles at the end of the hammer drilling.

On top of fitting into tight areas, the compactness enables for easy transportation. Usually, I carry it in my backpack and manage to carry a ton of other things in it.  When not in use the sturdy base allows for standing alone.

High Performance

Thanks to a high-performance motor you get 300 units out of power. The motor drives a high-speed transmission system. High speed because the 1500 RPM is quite high. Otherwise, the speed is variable and thus allowing for versatility.

The high-speed transmission delivers to you two speeds, the lower speed range between, 0-450. The higher speed limit range is 0-1500 RPM. So whatever the task it allows for lots of versatility on the fastening and drilling jobs.

Comfortable And Durable

DEWALT DCD771C2 has an ergonomic handle that gives you the perfect grip for optimal control. On top of the grip, the DEWALT DCD771C2 hammer drill has a single sleeve ratcheting chuck that grips the bit tightly and securely.

Steel is the material that makes the hammer drill. So the question on durability has only one answer, it is extra durable. The material responsible for giving the comfort and sure grip is rubber.

Contractor Bag

The manufacturer provides a contractor bag for the unit. I call this a discount which is a necessity for contractors, the contractor bag that comes with the DEWALT DCD771C2. The bag allows you to tuck the accessories safely.

The contractor bag makes moving easier. Though I prefer putting mine inside the bag and into the backpack you can carry it with ease using the provided contractor bag.


  • Durable contractor bag
  • Ergonomic handle
  • High-performance motor
  • Compact
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Two speeds


  • The two speeds are somehow on the lower side
