This drill was very compact for the driver power it offers. The DeWalt 20V system is very nice. With the drill, I was able to everything I expected. I drills, screwed, and even tried out some lag bolts. Run time was the only negative. I got the impression it may have less capacity than some 18V...

Great Price and Ease of Use. One of the best manufacture's.

This is a very well built driver drill. It's quite small (compared with others I've owned) and comfortable and easy to use in tight places. It has plenty of power, three different light options, and a fuel gauge on the small battery pack. I do wish it had leveling bubbles, as I'm not real accurate a...

I read positive reviews on this set and I was not disappointed. Great combo. The drill works great The Impact driver is great. I never had an Impact driver before and now i use this all the time. Quality is great. The weight, balance, size, feel in hand are all perfect. Batteries seem to last. I alw...

I've been gifted other drills in the past and seriously considered purchasing the cheaper model but I knew this set would last me forever. I'm not disappointed!! It charges quickly, both drills are highly functional and fantastic to use all of the features. I've had them over a month. Taken down a 4...

Great combo tool. Light weight easy to use. Battery charges fast! Was able to complete deck in an afternoon with the two batteries included and quick charge.

I'm a metal framer interior and exterior heavy gage frame and the impact drill do a flawless job

I got this Black Friday week and thought it was a great deal at $499. 1. The drill is standard: adjustable clutch with small work light. It's pretty well balanced and solid. 2. The impact driver is fantastic: light, with a quick hex release ring and circle of working lights. It's my first drive...

Great bang for your buck. I would recommend purchasing extra batteries. I got the 2 pack of 5.0 AH and it seems to complete the package.

multi tool is much quieter than my old one. All of them are great. Awesome buy.

This blower is pretty powerful for it's small size. It certainly won't replace a larger blower completely for yard work but it really shines in certain situations. It's compact size and light weight have made it really handy when blowing sawdust off of my workbench and out of my garage. It's also be...

When it was delivered I saw this tiny box on my porch and I thought this can't be my blower but it was. I opened it and tried it out and I was very happy with the power it had. I am very happy with it and the small size makes it easy to transport. I works great for jobsite cleanup and keeping my too...

Really nice blower with a few attachments included. Two things that I would change: 1. Make the nozzle longer would make it easier on us taller folks and 2. Have more powerful batteries. These batteries only last ten minutes each at best. Luckily I already had two that came with a cordless drill I p...

This arrived quickly in a little box (about the size of a large shoe box). Had a good laugh at it's miniature overall size. This is like a hairdryer with a skill-saw handle. It really works well. Perfect for blowing off decks, sidewalks, driveways or quickly blowing out a garage or a boat. My 20v Li...

Originally I was going to give this to my broom-shy wife for our large deck but when the big brown goodie truck delivered this, it had 3/4 of a battery right out of the box and my kids started fighting over blowing grass clippings off the driveway... so I bought two more! Now I have one for the shop...

Great blower for clearing small leaves and dirt from my patio. It is small but has a good punch. Really like the lock switch that other small blowers do not have.

My wife loved mine so much she asked for one for our anniversary!!!

I already have a good gas blower which I keep outside my garage in the shed. When I work in the garage, many times I have had to use the blower which is noisy and not needed. This light duty blower works fine for garage dust, etc. Naturally it is not as strong as the heavy duty gas unit.

worked very well. I made one adaptation: I put a screw in to hold the front main tube to the yelow housing. The tube kept popping off. Other than that, the blower is an excellent buy for a compact blower.

This product works great and is convenient to use as a leaf blower. However I had to use duct tape to keep the tube secured to the blower. Obviously a design flaw.

Are the gears or chuck metal?

The chuck is metal, but I'm not sure about the gears.

This unit featires all-metal ratcheting chuck.

What is the total weight of the 2 bags with tools? Thanks

Hi I weighed each tool separately and came out to a total of 37.5 Lbs including bags and battery charger, 2 batteries provided And power adapter for Bluetooth speaker so let’s say 40 lbs to round it up!

Roughly 45 pounds with batteries depending on size and type of batteries, weight will very. Extra blades and bits included with weight in my current configuration.

About 30 lbs

Your best bet is to check out the specs on each tool to add up all the weights and then maybe a pound or two for the bags.

The amps

This is a 5 amp hour unit. Keep in mind that this specific model does not have a battery included. The B at the end will let you know if the kit includes a battery.

Maximum 20 volt

Use any 20-volt battery you want. 2, 3, 4, 5 amps. More amps the better but it will cost you more $$$ for bigger amp rated batteries. Big amp batteries will last longer on the job. Ask yourself what you are using it for, 30 minutes to blow saw dust off a shop floor or dirt off a tractor, 2 amps work for end of day clean up. Fall clean up around the house, like blowing out gutters use the 5 amp.

What is the OD of the pipe, and can segments be added, so to make a blower for the roof gutters?

The outer diameter at the very tip is 1-7/16" but then it tapers gradually as it gets closer to the blower body. Not sure if extension segments are available but you might be able to make some kind of home-made extension.

The outside diameter of the pipe is 2 inches. The end cap and pipe extensions have a insert and twist locking mechanism to secure the pipes together and to the blower body. I assume you could not add sections on to it to use to blow out gutters.

Hey there Mike. The inside bore of the outer rubber pipe is 1" with the O.D. being 1.5". If you remove the rubber pipe, the O.D. of the hard nozzle is about 1.75" but the residual push back when you block the flow is very weak. This little guy may be able to blow out some dry leaves if you are standing on a ladder but if you start adding hose to the machine for gutter cleaning, I think you will be greatly disappointed. It's not really designed for that. It's a great tool for blowing off dirt from areas, putting mulch back into the flower beds, drying the family dog and other stuff that a simple 100 CFM blower can do. You will need a full fledged "Leaf Blower" for your expectations.

How does this compare to the brushless one?

I have both saws and by far the brushless 7-1/4" is the better one. It has more power and using it for framing, does a better job cross-cutting and ripping lumber and ripping plywood and osb. It also has an electric brake and is constructed of more metal parts than plastic. For me it is comparable to a corded saw, but have a couple of extra batteries handy; like all cordless saws it goes through a battery pretty fast with constant use. I can usually cut two 12' to 14' stair stringers on one fully charged battery. I normally use the 6-1/2" saw as a trim saw because it's lighter and with the blade on the left side it's easier to see the cut line. If money isn't the main issue for buying, I would go with the 7-1/4" brushless, it's a much better tool.

operates the same as the brushless; the brushless saw uses less energy, so the battery lasts a lot longer and you don't have to replace the brushes.

there are no brushless to whear out outher the that they are the same.

I've got both this one is lightweight but battery life is short unless you use a flexvolt like on the brushless. For quick cuts it's great but for several rip cuts I'd go with the brush less. More Bang for your buck there. I love both and use the smaller one more often to cut 2x4's or wider boards. Plywood rips as well if I'm not going to do several at a time.
