In this review, you are going to learn more about this kit to help you make informed choice.



Features and specifications of DEWALT DCK211S2

Before discussing the salient features and specifications of this product, it is important to point out that DEWALT DCK211S2 combo kit consists of two main components. These components are the 12-volts Max drill/driver and the quarter-inch impact driver. Each of these tools is designed with high level of ingenuity making them highly compact and with a lot of power despite their small sizes.

The 12-Volts Max Drill/Driver

  • Features dual-speed transmission that is capable of providing 0-400 RPM or 0-1500 RPM with a fifteen-position clutch.
  • It also features a 3/8-inch single-sleeve and keyless chuck specifically designed to minimize bit slippage thereby preventing inaccuracy and possible accidents.
  • It has a built-in LED light that illuminates the work area so to provide clear vision for accuracy and quality of work.
  • The driver/drill is only 7-1/2 inches long, meaning it can fit into tiny places/spaces, offering secure penetration without resulting into damaged screw-heads from angled driving attempts.

Quarter-Inch Impact Driver

  • Designed to deliver 3,400 impacts each minute and as much as 79 food-pounds of maximum torque, a performance that cannot be easily matched.
  • The impact driver is capable of delivering 0 2450 revolutions per minute (RPM) for fast application.
  • It is only ¼ inch making it even more compact than the 12 volt Max driver/drill but still delivers comparable amount of power.

Other Features and Specifications

  • The kit comes with two (2) 12-Volts MAX lithium(ion) battery packs for the main components. The batteries have longer running time compared to regular batteries.
  • It also comes with fast charger and takes as little as just 30 minutes to charge from empty to full thereby reducing down time.
  • The kit has belt hooks for easy carrying and includes a contractor carrying case. All these features make it convenient to use and transport the kit.

  • The tools are compact and powerful capable of handling a variety of DIY projects with ease, accuracy and convenience.

  • Many people have had a chance to purchase and use this kit and most only have positive reviews of it.
