How I carried out this KEYED CHUCK DRILLS review:
1. I checked for the most powerful drills drivers.
2. I love drills that deliver a great torque while remaining less bulky and lightweight, so I pick out the ones that deliver good torque, are less bulky, and are lightweight.
3. Everybody loves working with a power tool that has little or zero chance of breaking. So From my picks in 2 above, I selected the ones that have a very sturdy build.
4. When it comes to keyed chuck drills, the chuck itself is a primary factor to check. So from picks at No 3, I picked the drills with a very firm chuck. This took out a good number of my picks as many of them had their chuck shaking a little bit when running. This left me with 5 really incredible, powerful, and lightweight drills with very sturdy chuck and great torque. The best of which is Dewalt DWE1014.

From the above comparison, it is clear that Dewalt DWE1014 is not only the best keyed chuck drill but also the most desirable. There are just a lot to love about this drill. Personally, I hate using a drill whose handle contour is not properly made. I also hate being limited when it comes to features. These are the reasons I love Dewalt DWE1014. The grip is really comfy and the weight is ideal for the most demanding tasks. The power delibered by this drill is also very sufficient to run screw through a hard surface with ease. You would also love the cool sound this drill makes when in use, unlike some drills that make irritating sounds.
I can boldly say that this is the best keyed drill ever. From the feel of the build, one can tell this tool has been specifically built to be solid and to withstand any form of jobsite mal-handle. Even at the quality, the drill is still easy to use with its simple functions, and it’s still very affordable. I checked out this drills competency in different materials and saw it is fit for metal, concrete, wood, or plastics materials.
This keyed chuck drill features a really dependable keyless chuck. Unlike the chucks featured in some other keyed chuck drill sets I have encountered, this drill’s chuck holds bits reallllly firm and tight throughout the period of operation. I really loved the fact that I don’t have to stop in between an operation to pick a bit that has fallen off as this drill does a perfect job when it comes to bit grip. One good thing to like about this keyed chuck drill is that it does a lot that a keyless chuck cannot. Like holding a smooth shank (non-hex) bit.
This is one powerful drill that even a woman would be happy to use as it features a soft handle and is very lightweight. I also noticed it is also easy to grip as you can have a stable pressure on the drill while it runs. This is unlike major keyless drills where you have to have to put a strong muscle grip on the drill to give pressure that would actually make it stable.
From my check, the cord featured in this drill is 8ft. It is a solidly built high-quality cord and It is compatible with a long list of Dewalt tool models with double insulators.
This drill features a soft trigger that I can confidently call ‘smooth’, and it is very responsive to the amount of pressure exerted on the trigger. You would love that even running this drill at 2800 RPM would not give that irritating noise that some keyed chuck drills give. This trigger supplies a great torque that cannot be expected from a lightweight drill. My love for this drill tripled when I noted this quality.
Generally, the handling ergonomics, weight, and the keyed metalic chuck make this drill a great and ideal tool. If you find value in quality and efficiency, and you are looking to get the best keyed chuck drill that would love every time you use, just choose Dewalt DWE1014.
