Over at Home Depot, they’re running a temporary sale on this Dewalt 20V Max 5-tool cordless combo kit. The expiration date is unknown, but we’ve seen this combo on sale in the past, and it’s always a good deal when it hits this price ($299).
Here’s what you get with the Dewalt DCK520D2 cordless combo kit:
- DCD780 drill/driver (here’s our review)
- DCS381 reciprocating saw
- DCF885 impact driver
- DCS393 6-1/2″ circular saw
- DCL040 LED worklight
- 2 batteries (they look like 2.0Ah battery packs)
- Carrying bag
(This deal post was first published 12/1/2015, and updated on 6/30/2016.)
The drill in this kit is Dewalt’s regular compact brushed model, the impact is their regular brushed model, the 2 saws are their standard non-premium combo saws, and the LED is their regular basic worklight.
Before you buy this deal, ask yourself if you’re okay working with the circular saw’s steel shoe instead of the premium circular saw’s magnesium shoe, and the reciprocating saw’s standard blade holder instead of the premium reciprocating saw’s 4-position blade holder. But also keep in mind that you won’t find a combo kit that comes with the premium saws for anywhere near this price.
At $299, this seems to be a great deal. This combo doesn’t have the latest and greatest tools, but not everyone needs that.
Judging by what we’ve seen in past years, supplies are likely limited.
Price: $299 with free shipping

Note: This combo kit (DCK520D2) doesn’t seem to have existed before the December 2015 holiday deal. All of the reviews on Home Depot’s page that were up when the deal first appeared were aggregated from reviews of last year’s similar holiday promo combo, and reviews of the standalone circular saw.
Last year’s special came with Dewalt’s premium circular saw, which was our best cordless circular saw editor’s pick, and as far as we can tell the only difference is the basic steel vs. premium magnesium shoe.
