DEWALT DCD460T2 60V MAX 2 Battery FLEXVOLT Stud Joist Drill Kit Review

DEWALT DCD460T2 Stud and Joist Drill Kit 


DEWALT DCD460T2 is a hot new release, cordless and flexible, half an inch stud and joist drill kit that includes the DCD460 model drill with a 60V brushless motor and FLEXVOLT battery that is known to be the first ever battery in the world that changes voltage when you swap tools (you will get two FLEXVOLT batteries in this kit). Being cordless, it gives you a great deal of freedom, without sacrificing on speed and power as it comes with a decent brushless motor with the enhanced runtime, power and 0-300 to 0-1250rpm variable ranges of speed. It has a metal gear housing that makes it feel rather reliable and durable.  You will be more in control with the two position side handle and the adjustable bail handle that also ensures leverage. It comes with the innovative e-clutch which is basically a “perform and protect” function that senses any reactionary torque from a stall or a bind-up and decreases speed automatically so it comes down to a manageable level till you can control the drill unit again.


Yellow and black Dewalt Drill weighs 12.9 pounds (has a package weight of 24.25 inches) as assembled, with measurements of 12.2 x 11.2 x 20.2 inches. It is suitable for use by electricians, HVAC installers, plumbers and others for drilling large diameter holes in wood, giving them a total control of the drilling task with great power, speed, and run time with low vibration and dust containment. 60V Flexvolt battery is flexible as the name suggests and also works with 20V Dewalt MAX tools, being backwards compatible, and this means you would get up to four times the runtime and will also be perfectly fine with the 120V MAX Dewalt tools as well. In the DCD460T2 drill kit box, you will get the DCD460 drill, two DCB606 lithium ion batteries, a fast charger, a black and yellow kit bag, a two-position side handle, an adjustable bail handle and a chuck key, and holder.  On the product page, you will find the capacity specifications for wood (hole saw, spade bit and auger bit) and steel (hole saw and twist bit), which you may want to have a look. It is offered with a three-year limited warranty by the manufacturer- Dewalt, that also includes a year of a free service contract and a 90-day money back guarantee so you can certainly have a peace of mind. Great kit overall and the price seems right.
