DeWalt Heavy-Duty 1/2″ Reversible Right Angle Drill Kit
By: Phil Benevides
Right out of the box you know this drill is the real deal, besides the primary handle and the 5-position side handle, the tool is composed of heavy duty die-cast metal, which houses the gears of the motor.
Using the DEWALT DW120K
The DEWALT Right Angle Drill DW120K also has the ability to be adjusted from 400 revolutions per minute (rpm) to 900 rpm by reversing the right angle head of the drill. This process is done simply with an allen wrench and takes just a few minutes.
While your taking this tool apart you can also choose to adjust where the the tool is pivoted before you lock it in place. This gives the operator additional flexibility to maximize comfort, although be careful since the drill will no longer neatly fit in the durable case included with the kit.
Luckily, if you find yourself just not using the right angle that often, or reach for a cordless drill, even on heavy duty jobs, this drill can be modified to revert to a straight drill with again just some simple adjustments with an allen wrench, giving you corded power for your toughest drilling applications.
Room for Improvement
The DEWALT Right Angle Drill DW120K falls short with a lack of a variable speed trigger and slick plastic handle, two aspects that hurt the operators ability to control the tool while performing work. In addition to the heft of the tool, the shortcomings are few. All in all the DEWALT quality construction and performance make this a definite consideration when you’re looking to purchase a heavy duty right angle drill.
