I just posted about the new Dewalt DCF850 Atomic impact driver bare tool being on sale and in short supply. Home Depot has a couple in stock at most stores near me (according to the website, as I can’t actually find them in-store), and other retailers have extended ETAs.
I wondered whether there would be any other kit options, and started searching. Right now, there’s the DCF850P1 kit, with charger, tool bag, and 5Ah battery, but might there also be a kit where the impact driver is bundled with the new Dewalt 20V Max PowerStack battery? That new battery won’t be out for two more months, but I thought to check for a potential kit nonetheless, or in case there were any other compact battery kit options (there aren’t).
While I didn’t find any new kits or configurations, I did come across what looks to be a really deal for the DCF850P1 kit.
Buy the Dewalt Atomic 3-speed impact driver kit – this is of course the new super-compact stubby model – and get a FREE bonus 5Ah battery.
So, you get the Dewalt DCF850 impact driver, (2) 5Ah batteries, a charger, and a tool bag, for the kit’s regular price of $199.
Over at Amazon, they have 2-packs of Dewalt 5Ah batteries priced at $149 right now, and the 2-battery plus charger and tool bag starter kit is priced at $175. $199 for the impact driver kit that’s regularly $199, plus a free extra 5Ah battery seems to be a very good deal.
Acme Tools says that the Atomic impact driver kit is out of stock and “usually ships in 3-5 weeks.” I would expect that the kits are fulfilled on a first-come-first-served basis.
Acme Tools has free shipping on $199+ orders.
What do you think about this deal?
