The DeWalt tools also tested at or near the top (behind the Fuel), and I enjoyed using them around the shop and on the job. The pod-style batteries allow thinner handles, which I find more comfortable. This comes at the cost of being bulkier overall than the Bosch, though not by much. The drill has a locking chuck, and the impact driver is quite compact, features three LED lights, and has a slip-in chuck. The DeWalt tools also have the most user-friendly belt hooks.
