Dewalt are no different, this incredible package will have you completing a multitude of jobs in no time at all.

Specification 

Both of the drills supplied have been produced to undertake the rigours of daily work site life.

The 1/2-inch hammer drill offers a high-power and highly efficiency motor which delivers 535 unit watts out for superior performance. It would be best used for light to medium drilling tasks.

A 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides incredible strength when gripping bits. This is perfect for reducing slippage during high-torque applications, ultimately providing the tool with a longer life.

A good cordless hammer drill should have metal components, and this drill doesn’t disappoint. The hammer drill/driver’s patented three-speed (0-575; 0-1,350; and 0-2,000 RPM), all-metal transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the job at hand.

The impact driver’s robust motor delivers 2,800 RPM—up to 43 percent faster than current impact drivers on the market. Its one-handed loading 1/4-inch hex chuck accepts and holds 1-inch bit tips for convenient fastening in tight spaces. Combined with its 5.55-inch length and 3.4-pound weight, the premium impact driver packs a serious punch in a small package.
