Things to Watch out for…
Here are some pro tips to make sure you are comparing like for like tools.
With so many confusing model numbers, it’s no surprise that people get confused about why there are such big price differences in DeWalt tools.
This is what you need to look out for to compare properly:
- The easiest way to compare is the model number. There are often different versions of the same model, such as “P1” and “P2” versions so check the full number
- Older versions of DeWalt tools had the 2.0 battery. Newer models have a superior 5.0 XR battery
- Check how many batteries you get with the pack. Often it might be the body only and some packs contain 2 batteries
- Does the package contain a carry case, bag or nothing? Decide which is right for you.

Which you prefer is a personal opinion, but it’s worth bearing in mind.
Apart from that, they love the power and find it easy to use and fast. It could be considered a little heavy, but that’s to be expected from a high powered piece of kit.
