About The DeWalt DCK266P2T Twin Pack
DeWalt DCD796 Combi Drill
The DeWalt DCK266P2T twin packs first feature is the DeWalt DCD796 18V XR compact hammer drill. It is a cordless drill powered by an 18-volt 5Ah DeWalt battery. The battery pack has a state-of-charge indicator, and is easy to remove and insert. It also has a drill driver and hammer feature for many applications.
The DeWalt 18v drill uses a brushless motor technology that increases its efficiency and gives it 30% more power than its predecessor, the DCD795. The drill’s brushless motor also has improved airflow to prevent overheating and increase power. It’s also lightweight and compact, weighing around 1.8 kg and 174 mm shorter than the DCD795, making it easy to use in small and confined spaces.
Apart from its size, the drill’s rubber grip-over mold enhances your comfort with its quality ergonomic design. It has around 15 adjustable torque control positions for screw driving into different kinds of materials. It also has three positions for LED light which set to low, medium, and high LED.
DeWalt DCF887 Impact Driver
This twin pack also carries the DeWalt DCF887 impact driver. Like the DeWalt DCD796, this driver also uses an 18V 5.0 Ah lithium-ion battery compatible with other DeWalt tools. It also has a brushless motor that can output a speed up to 205 Nm of torque, making it 28% more powerful than the DCF886, its predecessor. This output makes the driver efficient in finishing heavy applications immediately. It is also compact and lightweight, making it fit in small spaces.
This driver has three motor speeds and torque settings to optimize application control, including a setting called “PrecisionDrive.” The “PrecisionDrive” mode provides an additional screw driving application control to prevent material and fastener damages.
Apart from the power tools, the DeWalt DCK266P2T comes with two 5.0 Ah batteries for the combi drill and the impact driver. A multi-voltage charger is also included for the rechargeable batteries. The physical kit is a Tstak box, a registered trademark of the DeWalt brand that is both tough and flexible, serving as an optimized container with portable convenience.
