A drill is easily the most essential tool in the home. From simple tasks like installing window treatments to building furniture and remodeling a home, a drill is required. So it’s important that the drill we spend our hard earned money on works fits the task that we performing and works when we need it. This review is on the DEWALT 20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Drill/Impact Combo Kit. This is not a light duty drill kit. The DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Cordless Brushless Drill/Impact Combo Kit is a powerful combination, equipped to handle larger jobs. This kit comes with a brushless compact hammerdrill/ drill driver and a brushless impact driver, as well as two 20-volt Lithium-Ion batteries and charger. The brushless motor enables 57% more run time over the average brushed motor drills. The 20-volt battery system offers power like no other.
Specs and Features
The brushless compact hammerdrill/ drill driver weighs 3.5lb. It has a variable speed trigger switch with a brake. It has an adjustable chuck, up to 1/2.” It has a LED work light feature that operates on a timer.
The light is also activated when you pull the trigger on the drill. This is great for working in dark areas. The directional light provides spotlighting.
The Dewalt 20-Volt MAX Cordless Brushless Impact driver is compact and weighs only 2.8 lbs., making it perfect for tight awkward spaces. It also comes equipped with an LED work light that turns on when the trigger is pulled. This impact driver has a 1/4″ quick release hex shank. The Dewalt 20-Volt MAX Cordless Brushless Impact driver has 3 operating modes. With each mode, the rpm and torque increases. Mode 1 is the Precision Drive mode. Mode 2 and 3 are the typical impact modes. However, the Precision Drive mode is a unique feature that comes in super handy when working on light projects that require less force, reducing the likelihood of stripping the screws and damaging the work surface. It allows the driver to operate similarly to a screwdriver.
DEWALT 20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Drill/Impact Combo Kit operates on a 20V MAX Lithium-Ion battery system. It provides up to 60% more capacity than standard 20V MAX. This combo comes with 1 premium XR and 1 compact XR Lithium-Ion battery packs and a chrarger.
Each battery has an LED fuel gauge, which allows you to check the power level of the batteries at any time.
The tool comes with a 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service and 90 days money back guarantee. The battery has a 3-year limited warranty and 3-year free service.
Things we liked about it
All in all, DEWALT 20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Drill/Impact Combo Kit this is a great set. The power and efficiency of both the drill and impact driver exceed most drills out on the market. Priced at $249, this is not a kit that I would recommend to the beginner DIY. While it does have the capability of handling lighter, smaller jobs, this is a heavy duty tool set built for handling larger, tougher jobs. And these are the things we Love about it:
- The speed and force of both the drill and driver
- The ergonomic handle on the drill and driver
- The LED Work light
- The Precision Drive mode of the impact driver
- The compact lightweight design of the impact driver
- And its Made in the USA
