Dewalt’s 20V Max brushless drills and impact drivers are quite good. We tend to be more enamored with Milwaukee’s Fuel brushless tools these days, but Dewalt still makes a very fine product.
The DCF886 is a nice model, and was our 2015 Editor’s Choice for Best Cordless Impact Driver. Now that the 3-speed Dewalt DCF887 is coming out, the DCF886 might be unseated in next year’s recommendations.
I came across a fantastic deal on a Dewalt brushless combo, but instead of just telling you about it, let’s lead up to it.
The DCF886 impact driver, bare tool, is $129 via Amazon, before $25 off $100 discount, or $104 after.
So that’s about $300 for a complete kit of the DCD795 hammer drill and DCF886 impact driver, plus (2) 2.0Ah Li-ion battery packs.
Sounds about right.
You can buy the Dewalt DCK286D2 kit, which comes with the 20V Max brushless compact hammer drill and impact driver, for $299, and while it’s not eligible for the $25 off $100 promo, it’s part of Amazon’s Dewalt Bolt-On promotion.
As part of the Dewalt Bolt-On promo, if you buy that kit you can get a free circular saw (our editor’s choice for best cordless circular saw, but currently out of stock), or a free premium reciprocating saw, or a free angle grinder, or a free 3.0Ah battery. Check here for details.
Right now, at Home Depot, there’s a new Dewalt 20V Max brushless combo that I saw in stores that’s also available online – DCKTS386D2.
The DCKTS386D2 kit comes with:
- DCD795 brushless hammer drill
- DCF886 brushless impact driver
- DCL040 LED worklight
- ToughSystem tool storage box
- 2x 2.0Ah Li-ion battery packs
- Multi-voltage charger (20V Max and 12V Max)
The price for the DCKTS386D2 kit is $299, or $294 after HDHOLIDAY coupon code (expires 12/03/2015).
If you ask me, this is a great buy. For the price of the hammer drill and impact driver kit, you get this special bundle, which also has an LED worklight and ToughSystem tool box.
Price: $294 after HDHOLIDAY coupon, with FREE SHIPPING
