Cordless drills, like other tools, come in all kinds of different sizes and styles. And, also as with other tools, there are more ideal and better pairings for certain tasks, and less than ideal ones.
Right now, at CPO and Acme Tools, they have the Dewalt 12V Max Xtreme series cordless drill kit on sale for $79.
(I wrote about some other recent Dewalt Xtreme tool deals here recently.)
Why should you buy this?
First, it’s on sale at a great price right now, especially if you need enough other things to get free shipping.
This drill is going to be smaller and lighter than most 18V cordless power tools out there, and it’s still usably powerful thanks to its high efficiency brushless motor.
What I like about this drill, and Dewalt’s other Xtreme series 12V Max, is that they’re not trying to replace 18V or 20V Max cordless power tools. They’re handy for lighter duty tasks and where you want a more nimble cordless drill.
I think that this might serve well as a standalone cordless drill for users with light duty drilling and screwdriving needs, or a companion to a larger and heavier much more powerful cordless drill.
If you’re still looking for a new cordless drill, add this one to your shortlist.
Sale Price: $79
If there are other Dewalt tools on your shopping list, especially those that aren’t promo-priced and thus able to take advantage of the seasonal $50 off $200+ promo, consider this Dewalt Xtreme drill/driver and Tstak combo instead. It’s priced at $115.
