The DeWalt DCD996 combi hammer is the successor to the DCD995, with an improved, larger brushless motor which delivers up to 34% more power. DeWalt have improved the airflow to this motor which keeps it cool and at the top of its performance. It features an improved automatic high speed for increasing the users masonry drilling speed.

It has a 3-speed gear box giving you ultimate control over blows-per-minute and revolutions-per-minute. For example, in gear three while in hammer mode you ll have 38,250 blows per minute while the chuck spins at 2,250rpm.

There's also a newly improved, 3-stage, bae-mounted LED worklight. It has a maximum brightness of 60 lumens, enough to light up a huge work area and even bright enough to use solely as a torch. There's a sturdy switch built-in to the drill base to control the brightness.

For a casual use DIY drill the 996 is a bit of a beast. It's bigger, heavier, has more torque and speed control so is better suited to heavier work. I haven't had chance to do much with it yet so I'm limited on longevity etc but the quality is what you'd expect. By choice for most use as a keen DIY'er I'd go for the 796 which I also own and have used extensively for the last 3 years. Smaller, lighter but still all metal gearbox and better suited for driving screws even this has proved to have a bit too much torque for smaller screws. The 996 will get used for my heavier work so I'm expecting it to last as long as me
