Fast, Powerful Hammerdrill with Three-Speed Transmission
Built to deliver fast, dependable results, the DCD970 XRP 18-Volt Cordless Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver offers 450 unit watts out for effective drilling and fastening in a wide variety of materials. Its patented, three-speed, all-metal transmission matches the drill’s performance to the task at hand, resulting in quicker completion of stubborn jobs, along with improved run time and reduced wear and tear on the tool’s motor.
This tool also offers a heavy-duty, 1/2-inch, self-tightening chuck with bit-gripping strength. When placed in hammerdrill mode, the tool delivers 8,500 to 34,000 beats per minute for making holes in masonry. In addition, an L.E.D. work light near the trigger provides increased visibility when you’re working in dark or confined spaces, and the tool’s well-balanced body and mid-handle, comfortable grip help keep you in control at all times.
Compact, Heavy-Duty Impact Driver
The DC825 18-Volt Impact Driver is capable of delivering 1,330 inch-pounds of torque for superb performance in a wide range of fastening applications. Its variable-speed trigger allows you to move between speeds ranging from 0 to 2,400 rpm and to deliver 0 to 2,700 impacts per minute for quick, results with minimum effort pushing in the fastener as it sinks into the material.
In addition, this impact driver’s frameless motor features replaceable brushes for improved durability and extended tool life. A durable, magnesium gear case and an all-metal transmission also contribute to the tool’s exceptional durability. And the driver’s heavy-duty impact mechanism directs torque to the fastener without causing the reactionary torque kickback seen when using a drill. This protects you, your tool, and your work.
Trademarked XRP Extended-Life Battery System
Two XRP Lithium Ion extended run-time batteries keep all of these tools running at optimum levels. They provide up to 40 percent more run time than standard batteries and over 2000 cycles for nearly 2-1/2 times the life of traditional nickel-cadmium batteries. Any XRP battery can be used with any 18-volt DEWALT tool, which allows you to expand your system by adding other DEWALT cordless tools (sold separately) as the demands of your job grow. In addition, the one-hour Lithium Ion charger helps maintain power to your packs all day long.
This 18-Volt XRP Lithium Ion Hammerdrill/Reciprocating Saw Combo Kit comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money back guarantee.
