I keep seeing the older kit being posted with the DCD996 hammer drill. That's still a great tool but if I were in the market, I'd spend a few extra dollars and get the newer kit.

Have to add to cart to see price


This 2-tool combo Kit includes the DCD999 20V MAX* 1/2 in. Hammer Drill/Driver with FLEXVOLT ADVANTAGE™ tool technology. It gets up to 42% more power** when paired with FLEXVOLT® batteries (FLEXVOLT® Batteries sold separately). This kit comes with one DCF887 20V MAX* XR® Cordless Impact driver, two DCB205 20V MAX* 5.0Ah batteries, a fast charger, and kit bag.

Think I got this or very similar deal for $200 last year. Though haven't seen it that low again. https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/fp/546197

That's the dcd996 and doesnt include the fast charger (8 amp charger). He specifically outlined the difference in deal vs dcd996 and the dcd999.
The DCD999 when paired with a flexvolt battery is much more powerful than the 996.
At 300 this is not a bad deal. I have bought from Acme a hand full of times. Not my favorite vendor. Order tracking is sloppy. Customer service is a joke. I've always receieved my items so there that, but sometimes can take 2+ weeks.

i got a $10 off coupon (pretty sure for new shoppers) while getting this deal. knocks it down to $290 + tax.

great deal if you look at each piece as $60 each or more than $600 in value if bought separately for half off. i know Home Depot sells this same bundle without the fast charger and 8Ah in battery total (vs 10AH in this deal) for $100 more so this is definitely the better deal.

Flexvolt advantage** is just marketing. You can use the 12ah flexvolt battery on any 20v tool to get more power**

I have power detect, flexvolt advantage, and regular XR tools.... I wish Dewalt would put more money towards tools instead of marketing.

Yeah I like them for my purposes but it's hilarious to see threads here where people think this is contractor grade or special. If you believe that I have some $100 gold plated monster cables to sell you

In reality real contractor grade stuff is brands you haven't heard of and probably not found at Walmart ot HD

Also, as others have said, there exists cheaper packages. And these darn 5ah batteries and the charger have been here 2 for $100 so I highly doubt you are getting your extra $100 worth even with the model#, a charger, some batteries and 30 cents worth of polyethylene (or cloth. Last one at least had a hard case)

Excuse me most of my guy friends that are homeowners and DIYers use Dewalt. I have 3 neighbors across the street, two are brothers, one brother is Homeowner/DIY and uses Ryobi, the other brother is a contractor who use to have a team working for him and all he used was Dewalt for his entire team. The third neighbor uses Rigid.

I've used and seen their tools first hand. The Ryobi Impact Driver could install fence screws no problem but my Dewalt Drill/Driver could not do the job. The same Ryobi Impact Driver could not drill into concrete exterior wall for a simple screw and we had to use his brothers Dewalt Hammer Drill to do the job.

I did not know the difference between these tools until i saw first hand what each tool could and could not do. because of this i stick with Dewalt. i always thought my Dewalt 18V Cordless Drill /Driver was all i needed and could do everything i needed to do with just one tool.

Different tools do different things but at the end of the day you want the job done right and the first time you get Dewalt. Its everyone's brand of choice for a reason and because of this deal and brand i now own a stronger Hammer Drill / Impact driver than my contractor neighbor (pretty sure his is 18V).

Had you used a Ryobi hammer drill to drill into concrete instead of an impact driver, the job would have been easily handled. Don't blame the tool if the wrong one was used.

There are several quality levels within each of those tool brands that you mentioned, so your comparison doesn't mean much unless you tell us the specific models of each tool that you are talking about.

I'm curious what brands you think contractors use that are "real contractor grade". I worked construction for a while and never saw any battery power tool brands that weren't household names.

Mostly Milwaukee, Makita, Dewalt. Occasionally some Bosch. Hilti is less of a household name but mostly used for hammer drills.

Every once in a while I'd see someone using Rigid or Ryobi but not often. They just didn't hold up as well.

Pretty sure both brothers have 18V. But basically a Dewalt Impact Driver can drill into concrete but a Ryobi Impact Driver can't.

Had an old-school professional builder talk about this. Metabo, (not the Hitachi crap) Hilti, and Festool are what he describes as professional tools. Contractor tools are the milwaukee, dewalt, mikita, metabo(Hitachi). The diy tools (ryobi, kobalt, craftsman,etc) are the ones with the low price, long warranty, and contractor caveats that void warranty with contractors use.

We concluded that most professional tool brands are having to cut cost and quality to get back in the hands to contractors because milwaukee and dewalt are pushing out so many tools and batteries at half the price they're failing to compete.

Hilti quality is sliding and festool is now the same price as milwaukee.

The same this is happening with snap-on.

Grab a Hilti, Festool, or Metabo from a few years ago. They're better than any tool I've used. Feel great in the hand, plastic is perfectly fit from fiber reinforced polymer, the gearbox has zero slack, and the trigger is perfectly smooth and controlled.

YouTube a breakdown of a Metabo or Hilti tool. It's insane.

Much more powerful? Its unnoticeable on my hammer drill and angle grinder. I put them to the test as well, and assumed that the real power difference would be half of the 44% Dewalt claims... but I've noticed no real difference at all. And I REALLY shouldve noticed it , with the way their angle grinders eat up batteries.

I ended up returning them after a few days and just sticking with my 414 and 411 grinders, and 996 hammer drill.

I love Dewalt, but in their recent attempts to "improve" their lineup, theyve only managed to step backwards imo. Hopefully, the stop screwing around, and start improving things, because the competition is getting better on almost every aspect.

I'm only interested in the drill and charger. What do people think of the deal if I can unload the batteries and driver for 180 and net the drill at 120?
