#1 Hammer Drill

DeWalt Hammer DrillCredit: amazon.com - DCK490L2This 20 volt half an inch compact hammer drill, runs on an efficient motor that offers 535 watts in a range of drilling applications. It has a three speed system in built, low (up to 600 RPM) for jobs that require accuracy, medium (up to 1,250 RPM) and high (up to 2000 RPM) for when speed & power is of the essence. Moreover, it is claimed to be thirty percent faster than other competing brands on the market.

#2 Impact Driver

Again, it is compact (measuring 5.55 inches in length) & ergonomically designed (weighing in at just 3.4 lbs), so it doesn't bare too much on your wrists and hands. The impact also comes with a one-handed loading 0.25 inch hex chuck that is adaptable to one inch bits as well, pretty darn useful when in cramped areas.

#3 Reciprocating Saw

DeWalt DCK490L2 Reciprocating SawCredit: amazon.com - DCK490L2This is a top of the range cordless reciprocating saw & every time I have used it, have been particularly impressed at just how stable and easy it is to use. It has a keyless lever action, so changing the blade is a whole lot easier than other models I have used -- you can also alter it for flush cutting when needed. Of course like the other tools above it is very powerful, with the motor providing up to 3,000 SPM. Awesome bit of tackle this, probably my favorite from the bunch in the DCK490L2 four tool combo kit.

#4 Work Light 

With working as an Electrician's mate for a good while, I know how valuable a top notch work light can be ( for work in lofts etc.) & this is definitely one of them. It offers up to 110 lumens and can last up to a very impressive 11 hours. This is mainly due to the new 20 volt batteries that have been fitted in all four of the tools, which we will discuss a bit more in detail below.

You will have noticed that all the tools are 20 Volts, these are the new line of more powerful, longer lasting batteries that DeWalt have provided -- which effectively upgrades all the previous 18 volt and 14 volt tools. This is why these set of tools are so much better than previous and other competing models. With this combo kit you are provided with two batteries and one charger (you can buy more separately though) as well as a carrier case to store it all in.

It is all well knowing, how good these tools are on paper (with regards to specs) but to get a complete overhaul feel for the tool DCK490L2 Four Tool Combo Kit, you need to pay particular interest in what reviews have to say. After a fair bit of research (and as expected really) they are nothing but very positive (the ones below have been sourced from amazon.com):

  • Very Pleased - "have used the set for several weeks now. It has met all of my expectation. The drill in particular is fantastic, the same heavy duty I have used in the NiCad version" - J. McCormack
  • Great Power Tools - "After about 8 months of constant use, the drill and driver still perform as they did when new. I can't ask for better, though i will eventually add the brushless type to the family." - Roger D.
  • Husband Loved it - "Bought as Christmas present for my husband. He loved them. He said you can really tell that these tools are high quality." - T. Taylor

You can find many more that all speak in the same tone. The fact that you are buying these tools in a bundle & not separately is what makes this deal so great, you are effectively saving yourself over a hundred bucks plus (compared to if you were going to get them each individually). In all, it is a fantastic deal & as said it is the ideal package to re-start your tool collection or freshen it up.
