This kit’s impact driver features a one-handed loading 1/4-inch hex chuck that accepts and holds 1-inch bit tips (view larger). Strength Defies Size
DEWALT has optimized both of these tools to withstand daily jobsite wear and tear. The compact drill/driver’s two-speed (0-600 RPM and 0-2,000 RPM) transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the task at hand and is up to 30 percent faster than current drill/drivers on the market. Its high-power, high-efficiency motor delivers 350 unit watts out of maximum power for superior performance in light and medium drilling applications. A 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides superior bit-gripping strength—reducing slippage during high-torque applications—thus providing longer tool life. Plus, DEWALT’s engineering and design team adjusted the drill/driver’s footprint and weight allocation for ideal balance and a lightweight feel, making the 3.4-pound tool easy to maneuver in tight areas. Meanwhile, the impact driver’s robust motor delivers 2,800 RPM—up to 43 percent faster than current impact drivers on the market. Its one-handed loading 1/4-inch hex chuck accepts and holds 1-inch bit tips for convenient fastening in tight spaces. Research shows that impact drivers are growing in popularity largely because of their smaller size and lack of kickback (or reactionary torque) thanks to the impact mechanism within the tool. Combined with its 5.55-inch length and 2.8-pound weight, the compact impact driver packs a serious punch in a small package.

Endurance and Ease of Use
DEWALT-designed electronics have been built into both tools’ switches to provide maximum life for the tools and batteries by helping to protect them from overheating, overloading, and deep discharge during use. The- 20-volt’s lithium-ion batteries provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18-volt lithium-ion battery technology, and the included Energy Star-qualified charger has dual voltage capabilities and it is compatible with both 12-volt max and 20-volt max DEWALT lithium-ion batteries. The tools’ slim handles fit easily into users’ hands, increasing the level of comfort during the course of long jobs, and the bright built-in LED work lights above the triggers have a 20-second delay that improves visibility in dimly lit spaces.

How to overcome the run out issue. I purchased this combo kit from Amazon over a month ago after reading all of the reviews and doing as much research as I could. This is the third Dewalt cordless drill I’ve owned. The last one I purchased approx. 5 years ago was a DC980KA which also has a 1/2 inch chuck. I had issues with run out (wobble) on that drill right out of the box. So it was disappointing to me that Dewalt didn’t fix this problem in all this time and with a new model drill. This made me look at other manufacturer’s…

As good as it gets, for now…. I’ve owned several cordless kits/tools over the last couple of decades. My needs have changed as I’ve grown in projects, and my old cheap black and decker sets have long since been replaced by Dewalts. I’ve had the Dewalt 18V kits for several years and I’ve been very happy with them. They last through most small jobs with one charge. They are solid, beefy, and have plenty of power, but are also pretty heavy. I nearly converted over to the Li-ion packs, but the price always kept me from it…
