Superior torque delivery

Dewalt DCD771C2 20V MAX Lithium-Ion Compact Drill and Driver Kit features 16 options of clutch settings. While other combo tools may come with over 20 settings, this one from Dewalt works perfectly fine with few clutch settings.

The clutch adjustment is surprisingly smooth, making it easy for you to quickly change settings with as little downtime as possible.

Ergonomic design for comfort

The handles and knobs for both the drill and driver are smoothly contoured, making it comfortable to handle these aggressive tools.

The tools are also covered in rubber bumpers to protect them from wear and tear and to keep your work surface from unsightly scratches.

The drill, which is powered by a 20V battery, comes with a conveniently lengthened and raised pistol grip, delivering a comfortable and balanced grip profile.

Even with the 1.5Ah compact battery, the drill/driver is adequately light so you will not succumb to fatigue too quickly, allowing you to make the most of your day at the job site.

Built for convenience

The Dewalt DCD771C2 20V MAX Lithium-Ion Compact Drill and Driver Kit comes with a quick-change ratcheting chuck that locks tightly even when smaller drill bits are loaded.

In addition, you can conveniently select the drilling or driving speed in just one click without the need to constantly fiddle with the switch.

The kit comes with a removable belt and a bit holder for added accessibility while you are at the job site.
If you are working in a dimly lit space such as the basement, you will appreciate the LED light that automatically lights up when you switch on the trigger and stays on a little longer after the trigger is released.

All in all, the Dewalt DCD771C2 20V MAX Lithium-Ion Compact Drill and Driver Kit offers superior performance. The 2000 RPM motor capacity provides greater efficiency and a longer life for the drill bits.

The drill is perfectly suited for medium-duty applications while the drill/driver will be convenient for the professional contract or DIY hobbyist who undertakes slightly heavier applications.
