When you think of professional power tools, which power tool manufacturer do you think of? While there are plenty of brands in the market place, one brand that comes to everyone's mind is Dewalt. Dewalt is a company that is known for a wide range of professional power tools that are made to last tough job site conditions. So how do you get into this brand? Let's take a look at the Dewalt Combo kit.
Dewalt Combo Kit Overview
So here is the deal. Dewalt is one of the hottest selling power tool brands. In fact, the Dewalt XRP was one of the best selling 18V NiCd brands. Even when you look around today, there are people still using the older NiCd batteries. When I talk to some of the tradesmen, they understand the benefit to upgrading but they question the decision since their XRP are still working and the large investment of upgrading.
So here is the deal with this article. I am not reviewing the Dewalt tools. This is more to show people what they can get and how they can get invested in the 20V Lithium platform for an inexpensive investment.
The way I look at this kit is sure, it's not all their top of the line tools but it will get you what you want. You can now get invested into a Lithium line for very cheap. You get professional tools that will perform any task. If there is a certain top of the line Dewalt tool you want, you can just buy the bare tool and still use the other tools. This kit is designed to get you into current times with the Lithium batteries and not break the bank.
Dewalt Combo Kit Features
The kit features 8 tools, 2 batteries, a charger, and Toughbox. The model number is DCKTS882D2M1.
The kit features a single 4Ah and a single 2Ah Lithium battery. The large batteries are great for the higher demand tools like the saws while the 2Ah battery is great for the impact and smaller tools.

You can pick this kit up for about $500 at The Home Depot. This is a steal when you consider just how much the box and two batteries run. Now throw in 8 tools, you get a great deal and a great way to invest into a better battery platform.
Dewalt Combo Kit Final Thoughts
Overall you can't go wrong with this kit. 8 tools, two batteries, a charger and a great box for $500.
