The variable speed brushless motor of the DeWalt 996 drill provides a larger amount of power than the DeWalt 791d2 for use with our augers. Its capability to go from a maximum of 450 RPM up to 2,000 RPM at its upper limit means it’s just as suited for digging through heavy soil as it is driving a screw. The motor’s high-efficiency design supplies you with up to 75% more run time compared to a brushed model.
The DeWalt 996 drill also features a heavy-duty ½-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts. This ensures that whatever type of bit you’re using, it will hold on securely and without slippage. Its lithium-ion battery means you’ll have full cordless freedom, making it perfect for use in your garden or backyard.
The drill’s bright LED spotlight enables you to work in waning daylight or in confined spaces without losing sight of what you’re doing. Other features include a belt hook for easy portability, a 360-degree side handle for added stability during use, and a second handle for added safety and ease of use with shorter augers.
