Over at Amazon, this Dewalt DCD777 brushless drill/driver kit, which is new for the season, is on sale for $119.
I can’t say this is a complete surprise, because I predicted the pricing almost perfectly in my preview post:
I suspect we’ll soon see this model everywhere, potentially at the $129 price point, maybe even less. I’ve seen one listing with a $149 price, which might be the off-season price for the kit, and so $129 during the holiday season, maybe $119, isn’t too far of a stretch.
It’s a good price for what you get. While not quite as feature-rich as the latest and greatest Dewalt compact brushless drill, the DCD777 has strong specs and is reasonably compact. Plus, it’s packaged with 2 battery packs.

There are so many cordless drill deals out there right now, so why buy this one? Because it’s brushless, and it’s inexpensive entry into Dewalt’s 20V Max cordless power tool lineup. But, to be fair, this is not the best starter kit if your hope is to buy some heavy duty tools next, like a rotary hammer or circular saw.
Amazon and Home Depot offer free shipping.
Acme’s price is $149, and it is NOT eligible for their $25 off $100+ promo, and they only have free shipping on $199+ orders, but they do have a lowest price match guarantee.
I hate to call this an entry-level brushless drill, but how else do you describe a brushless drill that’s designed to cost less and not be as powerful or fully featured as the regular compact model (DCD791)?
