Shown here is my trusty Dewalt Xtreme 12V Max cordless drill/driver. Its power and performance are perfectly dialed in for its size, and the handle grip and comfort are superb.
I spent a couple of hours outside today, building and filling a new planter box to join several others that I built last summer, and the drill put in some work drilling pilot holes for 5/16″ structural screws.
(Yes, it’s almost winter, but I want to get this done before everything freezes, to have it ready for planting next spring. I also need the wood out of the garage so that I can start a big project.)
So, if I was using a Dewalt Xtreme cordless drill earlier, why is there a new combo kit sitting on my workbench?
Dewalt is a ToolGuyd sponsor for the holiday season (thank you!), and… well… doesn’t that always mean it’s time to buy out some new tools?!
So, out came the ToolGuyd credit card, and hello Dewalt shopping spree!
I don’t know want to ruin the surprise, but we’ll be holding a giveaway next week where you can win a chance to have your own Dewalt Shopping Spree opportunity!
And, here they are, my new Dewalt Xtreme cordless drill and impact driver. I’ve been using a review sample of the drill on and off since it first came out, and the impact driver a couple of times since then as well, but these are MINE, and I am very much excited.
Even though I know exactly what to expect with these tools, I can’t wait to do some more drilling and driving.
The kit also comes with (2) 2.0Ah batteries, a 12V/20V Max charger (DCB112, 2A charging rate), belt clips, and a tool bag.
I also of course ordered a personal copy of the Dewalt Xtreme 12V Max screwdriver, and the new 5-in-1 multi-head drill/driver. There was also an excellent holiday promo on the one-handed reciprocating saw, but I couldn’t justify it as I have a purchased copy of the Dewalt 20V Max Atomic version that has not left me wanting.
Unfortunately, this combo kit, DCK221F2, is no longer at Black Friday/Cyber pricing. I’ll keep my eyes for any other promos that are worth sharing.
But, there’s a bit of good news. Other Dewalt holiday promos are still ongoing:
