DEWALT DCK280C2 20-Volt Max Li-Ion 1.5 Ah Compact Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit
DEWALT’s DCK280C2 20-volt max lithium-ion compact 1.5 Ah drill and impact driver combo kit combines the fast performance of the DCD780 1/2-inch drill/driver and the compact power of the DCF885 1/4-inch impact driver to provide a well-rounded pair of tools that help everyone from steel stud framers and contractors to cabinetmakers and plumbers work their way through a variety of applications.

- (1) DCF885 impact driver
- (2) 20-volt max 1.5 Ah lithium-ion batteries
- (1) 30-minute Energy Star-rated charger

Strength Defies Size
DEWALT has optimized both of these tools to withstand daily jobsite wear and tear. The compact drill/driver’s two-speed (0-600 RPM and 0-2,000 RPM) transmission allows users to select the appropriate speed for the task at hand and is up to 30 percent faster than current drill/drivers on the market. Its high-power, high-efficiency motor delivers 350 unit watts out of maximum power for superior performance in light and medium drilling applications. A 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide inserts provides superior bit-gripping strength—reducing slippage during high-torque applications—thus providing longer tool life. Plus, DEWALT’s engineering and design team adjusted the drill/driver’s footprint and weight allocation for ideal balance and a lightweight feel, making the 3.4-pound tool easy to maneuver in tight areas. Meanwhile, 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. Research shows that impact drivers are growing in popularity largely because of their smaller size and lack of kickback (or reactionary torque) thanks to the impact mechanism within the tool. Combined with its 5.55-inch length and 2.8-pound weight, the compact impact driver packs a serious punch in a small package.
Endurance and Ease of Use
DEWALT-designed electronics have been built into both tools’ switches to provide maximum life for the tools and batteries by helping to protect them from overheating, overloading, and deep discharge during use. The- 20-volt’s lithium-ion batteries provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18-volt lithium-ion battery technology, and the included Energy Star-qualified charger has dual voltage capabilities and it is compatible with both 12-volt max and 20-volt max DEWALT lithium-ion batteries. The tools’ slim handles fit easily into users’ hands, increasing the level of comfort during the course of long jobs, and the bright built-in LED work lights above the triggers have a 20-second delay that improves visibility in dimly lit spaces.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1) 1/2" chuck (with out run out issues)
2) Li-Ion batteries
3) compact size
4) LED light available to use same batteries.
The above factors ruled out the cheaper drills and my suspicion that the run out was caused by the chuck and not the drill led me back to Dewalt. Since I couldn't live with the run out I had to come up with a solution. What I noticed when reading reviews was that no one had any problems with the higher end Dewalt hammer drills and that they had a different chuck on them. I also found a post on a message board that said that Dewalt didn't use the Jacobs chuck on the hammer drills because they had too many problems. They used a slightly more expensive Rohm chuck instead. This lead me to look at the Rohm chuck. They are easily identified by looking at the tip of the chuck. The Rohm chuck has a "hexagon" (nut) on the front of the chuck for installing and removing the chuck. The specifications for the chuck are as follows:
1) 1.5-13mm capacity
2) 1/2 X 20 thread (for installing on drill)
3) single sleeve for drills with spindle lock
4) metal construction
5) with through hole for locking screw.
The part number for this chuck is difficult to pin down since I think it has more than one number for the same chuck and the picture on Rohm's web page shows 2 chucks, one with a single sleeve (one handed) and one with a double sleeve (two handed). On ROHM's web page it looks like it is 893352. I've also seen it listed as Dewalt-Rohm 330075-74,330075-59,330075-91,586200-10. New they sell for approx $70. A used chuck lists for about half that price which is what I ended up buying.
When I got the drill I tried installing a new drill bit to see how good or bad the Jacobs chuck was. It had noticeable wobble. I then removed the Jacobs chuck and installed the Rohm chuck. After installing the same drill bit in the Rohm chuck there was no noticeable wobble. I've since used this drill/ chuck combination daily without any problems or issues. I find the new compact size and lighter weight to be a huge advantage to this drill over my older ones. The clutch on the drill also seems to be improved over my last drill. As for the impact driver. I find that it is excellent for dis-assembly but has limited use for assembly due to not having the clutch.
For those of you interested in doing this same thing Dewalt has instructions on their web page that tell you how to change the chuck. It is important to note that the set screw which can be seen in the bottom of the chuck opening has left handed threads. You will also need an appropriate size torx driver to remove it before you can remove the chuck.
I would have given this kit a solid 5 star rating if it came with the Rohm chuck. It is disappointing that Dewalt is more interested in saving a few dollars than putting out a better quality product. I'm also very disappointed with Jacobs. I always thought they put out quality products and was surprised to find the root of this problem to be their chuck.
So to summarized great product for the at home DIYer looking for a nice starter set.
First, the case. There is ample space for the tools and some room left over for some bits as well. Don't plan on fitting a box of drill bits... but you can certainly store some loose bits and small tools. The case handle is nicely contoured for carrying and feels good to hold. This is just the beginning.
The charger is pretty compact. It would be nice to have some information regarding the battery level or status... as this charger just has the same old blinking light... However, the battery charges quickly, so you will not have to wait long. In my experience, the charger did not get too warm either.
I have used the drill far more than the impact driver so far, so I will focus my comments on the drill.
This drill is light. Upgrading the 1.5mAh battery to a 3mAh size will surely add some weight, but really not much. Drill bits load and unload quickly, with a satisfying click in the chuck when loading bits. The exterior of the drill is all plastic construction with a rubber grip. Metal would be nice, but for a household user the lighter weight is more appreciated. That said, the construction is very solid. Both tools have a belt hook on the side, which should really be a standard feature on any drill. Because of the light weight, hanging this drill on your belt won't drag you down.
My gripe with the drill is that the LED worklight (located near the trigger) is almost useless at close range. The light becomes shadowed very very quickly by the long snout of the drill. The impact driver, on the other hand, has three LEDs located all around the drill bit.... which makes for full light coverage even at close range.
Both tools have a lot of torque and plenty of power.
At the current price of $199... this is a great set. I was happy with my purchase when this combo was at $240, and I would highly recommend it.
