Over at Home Depot, today only they have a deal on this Dewalt DCK277C2 20V Max brushless drill and impact driver combo kit. It’s on sale for $149. It’s currently $200 elsewhere.
I’ve posted about the DCD777 brushless drill/driver before, and in that post I noted that the impact driver, DCF787, is only available in this combo kit. That’s still true. As far as I can see, the DCF787 brushless impact driver is only available as part of this combo kit.
The DCD777 drill and DCF787 impact driver have from the start appeared to be mass market consumer models. Even so, $149 for the combo kit seems to be a good price.
The drill can deliver up to 340 UWO and has a 2-speed gearbox with 0-500 and 0-1750 RPM ranges.
I can’t find specs for the impact driver anywhere. Not on any Dewalt or retailer product pages, or even in a search for a user manual. I would hope that it delivers around 1400-1600 in-lbs max torque, which seems to be the average for professional cordless impact drivers.
The kit comes with (2) 1.5Ah battery packs, a charger, and carrying case.
This is without a doubt an entry-level compact brushless tool kit designed for mass production and a highly competitive price point.
If you ask me, $200 is a stretch. For $200, and if sticking with Dewalt, I’d wait until the holiday season and get the DCD777C2 kit for $99, and the DCF885C1 kit for another $99. That impact driver isn’t brushless, but it’s still a good model. For around the same $200, I’d have 2 tools, 3 battery packs, and 2 chargers.
But for $149, this deal looks much more appealing, especially if you’re a DIYer, homeowner, or perhaps a pro looking for a no-frills compact brushless drill and impact driver combo.
The deal ends at 4am ET 9/12/2017, unless supplies sell out sooner.
