For such a low 10.8 volt power supply the DCK211D2T is one powerful cordless compact drill/driver and impact driver from the high quality Dewalt brand. So two high quality tools like this, from a leading brand, is clearly a very good purchase.
This is probably one of the best combination power tools that you can buy right now. It is truly compact and lightweight yet packed with quality. There are a few "twin packs" available in the UK market, But personally I don't think there is any that are better than this one.
Overall it gets a 94% satisfaction rate from Buyers. It doesn't really get much better than that. The recommended Retail price is close to £300. However, there are always great deals available on these tools, and they are on at certain times, so always shop around.
What Do You Get for Your Money?
- Dewalt DCD710 drill/driver
- Dewalt DCF815 impact driver
- 2 x 10.8 volt Lithium Ion batteries
- Fast Charger, belt hook, magnetic bit holder and kit box
That quality of kit is I think extremely good value for your money. These will literally last you for many years to come. So we shall now have a closer look at the two tools below. We shall start with the drill, and then also review the impact driver.
DCD710 Drill Review
The drill that comes with this DCK211D2T model is the popular DCD710 drill and screwdriver. It has a 15 position torque setting.
The reason for having a choice of torques is that it allows you to drive screws into different types of wood without damaging the wood surface. The gears on this drill/driver are metal which means they will last for ages.
It also comes with a 10 mm keyless chuck, automatic spindle lock, 2 speed settings with variable speed, forward and reverse and an LED light for working in dark spaces.
Although a 10.8 volt cordless drill, this packs a lot of power. You will not struggle to drill or drive through many tough materials with this choice.
DCF815 Impact Driver
The impact driver that comes with this combination set is the popular DCF815 and it is a powerful little beast.
Like the drill this also has a metal housing and gears and that means quality and a highly endurable tool. It also has the LED lighting for working in poorly lit areas.
So with these two compact but powerful tools you have 2 great pieces of kit that will allow you do almost any drilling or driving jobs around the home. You may be thinking that the smaller 10.8 volt battery may not be big enough. I was amazed by the power that this set generates. I assure you power will not be an issue.
What Actual Buyers Said about the DeWalt DCK211D2T Twin Pack
It is always important to listen to what the actual buyers had to say about this twin pack. Below I have first summarised what they said, and then added a couple of snippets of what they actually said.
As you can see from the above information, the huge majority of buyers rated this a 5 star product. There were only 2 poor reviews. One complained that he didn't get a belt clip, and the other review said that he was very pleased with the purchase. I can only assume that he filled in the wrong rating.
The bottom line though is that, in my opinion, there is nothing to complain about, should you decide to buy this kit. Here are what 3 buyers had to say:
The Drill Driver has OUTSTANDING performance and was a great help when I was erecting a garden fence
Absolutely amazing pieces of equipment.
After using many 18v cordless drills through my lifetime I was amazed with the DeWalt impact driver
Summary of the DeWalt DCK211D2T Twin Pack
I don't recommend tools to anyone without being certain about their quality, and value for money. This Dewalt combo kit, is in my opinion extremely high quality, and good solid value for money.
