Editor's Review: A Look into Cordless Combo Kits

review date: December 1, 2005

DeWalt's cordless combo kit offers no frills, just heavy-duty performance, which helped to make it our choice for best value of the 11 combo kits we tested. The hammer drill is a brute; it won the concrete drilling race in our test. It's one of only two drills we tested with three speed ranges. The saw is powerful with excellent endurance. Controls are excellent, although the knob holding the rip fence is difficult to access. The one-hour charger worked well, but the five different messages displayed by a single red LED were confusing.
