Milwaukee has been having all the thunder lately with the M12 Fuel brushless line of tools that it is promoting. Well In typical DeWALT style the next generation of 20V brushless tools appeared nonchalantly on the whats new page over at DeWALT.com. It looks like we have a hammer drill, 1/4″ impact and a drill driver which only has 10 UWO more than the existing compact 20V tools. It is still way too early in the day for me to figure out the UWO + ft. lbs equation. I can tell you the advantage here is going to be in runtime, 57% more runtime according to DeWALT. The brushless combined with the new 2.0 Ah will significantly enhance performance. They also look a little more compact than the existing 20V compact line.
DCD795D2 – 20V XR Brushless Compact Hammerdrill Kit
The DCD795 is .05″ bigger than the Milwaukee M12 Fuel, but is a 20V! That is some insane power to have in a tight area. It weighs 3.6 lbs and has a metal 1/2″ chuck. 2 speeds produce 0-600/0-2,000 RPM and up to 36,000 BPM for drilling into masonry. DeWALT put the LED at the base of the light, while this avoids shadows it gets blocked out in very tight areas where you can only get the head of the drill in.
DCD790D2 – 20V XR Brushless Compact Drill / Driver Kit
The DCD790D2 is identical to the DCD795, but without a hammerdrill feature.
DCF886 – 20V MAX* 1/4″ Impact Driver
They have 2 combo kits available with the new drills that include a DCF886 XR impact. I am assuming this a new brushless impact. We will find out more as we get it. It just so happens that this week we will be in Baltimore visiting with DeWALT, expect some coverage from that.
