In a prior video, we compared the DEWALT Power Detect DCD998 Vs FlexVolt Advantage DCD999 Drill Driver with some interesting results as to what large battery gave each drill more power.
I made a statement in the prior video that it felt like the DEWALT 20V 5.0 Ah Battery felt stronger in the DEWALT FlexVolt Advantage DCD999 drill than in the Power Detect DCD998. In the video, the 5.0 Ah battery seemed to push the 3-3/8″ bit deeper into the wood in the FlexVolt Advantage. During editing, it was evident that the wood was not supported well for a large bit, and many people mentioned that in the comments. This video was made to work to prove or disprove, my comment.
In this test, I wanted to work with smaller bits and the DEWALT 20V 5.0 Ah Battery to see if either drill had the advantage. The wood was drilled close to the support to try to remove and flex or wobble. Tests were done over and over in some cases to be sure we were not getting a result due to wood grain or knots.
While there were some odd results and it seemed like one drill did better with larger bits and the other did better with smaller ones, it seems my comment was wrong when I said the DEWALT 20V 5.0 Ah Battery felt stronger in the DEWALT FlexVolt Advantage DCD999 drill than in the Power Detect DCD998. They both are so similar in power that there is no way to say one is better than the other.
