Seems like decent deal for MAX tool kit all brushless, plus two 2.0ah batteries. I know it's not the XR series and it may not be lowest all time so keep your downvotes in your pants, some people might find it useful.

A TU and my Reps for caring to share this with us.

This is a solid Deal for a strong set.

The drills aren't XR, however the most important tool here is an XR ..... the XR Oscillating Multi-Tool.

Unless you're drilling a 100 anchor holes in concrete, or drilling through 18 solid inches of concrete, a brushless drill is not necessary.

For Home Use, these drills are a perfect fit.

And the XR Oscillating Multi-Tool is very useful, great for cutting stubborn bolt heads, scraping off adhesive, cutting clean lines in drywall ...... very useful, and great that it's brushless 👍

And having smaller batteries is easier on the arms, and having 2 batteries means 1 on the tool, 1 on charger.
The XR Oscillating is great, but the MAX series might as well be Craftsman.

The difference goes beyond brushless.

First off this set is $249, and it falls into "DeWalt Limbo".

If you want these just to have a yellow tool laying around for occasional use, then they will suit your needs. However, this set is overpriced for a set of tools that will rarely be used. Plus, with the 2ah batts, dont expect much more than a but of working here and there throughout the year. And for $200, better tools to fit that role exist... even in the DeWalt lineup...

The 20v MAX compared to the 12v, and (in some cases) the Atomic, rarely justifies it's place in the dewalt lineup, for people spending, say $200.

So as a person who made the mistakes of starting off with a "bait set" of tools, either go XR, or go 12v if DeWalt. Or go with another brand.

If it were a tool set with more specific, less used tools being the 20v MAX, then it could warrant the difference between choices. But a drill/driver will be used 3 to 1 over the oscillating tool (and I LOVE oscillating tools. It's a godsend for freehand mortis and tenons since I only have 1 arm) but a drill is the most used tool (and a driver is a must if you've never used one, and even moresoif you have.)

All in all, if it had better batts, it might be worth it. But with the deals on tools over the past year, this falls into the "hmmph" category. Home depot had better deals a month ago for $200. So it's just not that good a deal ... leftovers at best.

*edit- I apologize for the "I'm a meanie-head" novella.

These are all brushless tools, just the drill and impact are not "xr" branded. I do have all these tools in xr already but they are all decent and if I didn't already own them this set is great at this price point

It is a pretty solid deal. The best deals I've seen for the XR Multi tool was $99 for the tool, 1.3 battery and charger. So you're getting the nicer batteries with level indicator, a second battery, the drill and impact for $100. I wanted the multi tool so picked this up and will hope to flip the drill and impact on marketplace to bring the cost the the rest close to $100.

You comment on a lot of Dewalt tool posts. I disagree with a lot that you have to say.

I own all 3 of these, and like many people have said - they're fine for home use.

Most pros I know are moving to 60v and trash the XR platform now, even tho those tools made them plenty of money the past few years.

I do comment on DeWalt a lot, and give them a lot of 💩, it's true.

I agree in the 60v aspect. I like the 60v I own. However, I see those more for proffesional use, where an XR series is one that should be their base for durability. The 20v max line, (as you might've seen me post many times before), is a tool that is overvalued, and underwhelming when compared to the DeWalt series that cost less, or more.

However, a deal is a deal. And as far as deals go, this isnt a very good one, and Acme Tools is a gamble for many people.

Personally, I love Dewalt, but they are falling fast.

For a tool that the average homeowner should have, an XR series should last a lifetime. And the deals that have came around, and are likely still to come, destroy this "deal".

Now... if only they could lighten the weight of the 60v tools. If using them as a 60v, I use 9ah and 12ah batteries, and they become really unbalanced, and fatiguing throughout a day. I feel that if 60v is their pro line, they will want to consider "reinventing the wheel" in terms of how their tools are designed.

For now, DeWalt is becoming more Craftsman, than DeWalt. And other companies are growing, and passing them by. If I wasnt ⚾️'s deep in Black and Yellow, I'd be inclined to switch out to add more red, green, or blue to my collection. Lol.

(Btw, know anyone that wants to buy a frickin' ton of the zipper bags that come with the tools? You could rent a house with the numbers I have lol.)

This is a good deal I own each of those products work good.. the impact driver according to youtube VCG out performs the XR version somehow. Mine was from lowes tho same price and also came with the XR 5"orbital sander and a crappy flashlight... Awesome bag too Contractor bag I think.. the drill and driver are better than the atomic line and about the same size.

The XR driver above this 1 is supposed to have problems these drill and driver are both better than the 12v and atomic equivalent.

I bought the XR impact driver dcf887B not too long ago - what are the problems with these you mention? I may consider returning
