Over at Amazon, they have the Dewalt DCD710S2 12V Max cordless drill/driver kit on sale for $69.
The DCD710 is a compact 3/8″ drill, with 189 UWO max power, 15 setting adjustable clutch, and 0-400/0-1500 RPM gearbox.
To put things into context, the Craftsman 20V Max holiday season special buy drill, reviewed here, has a similar speed range, and 280 UWO max power output.
When I reviewed this Dewalt drill 8 years ago, the kit was priced at $159.
If you’re looking to buy into Dewalt’s 12V Max cordless power tool platform, or want an inexpensive and lightweight cordless drill to play sidekick to something that’s large, heavy, and overkill for lighter duty tasks, this is a great bargain.
One thing I really liked about this drill was its slim-grip ergonomics. The drill won’t win any “best of…” contests, but it’s a capable and comfortable model.
There are tons of recommendations I could make at $99+ price levels. But for under $70? This looks like a good choice for light to medium duty tasks on a budget.
The kit comes with a 12V Max charger, (2) Li-ion battery packs (1.3Ah or 1.5Ah), a removable belt hook, and carrying case.
