The new DEWALT model DCD790 compact 20V MAX* lithium ion drill/driver with Extreme Runtime (XR) features a brushless motor that delivers up to 57% more runtime versus standard brushed motors.
The kitted XR drill /driver (DCD790D2) and hammerdrill (DCD795D2) both come with two of the new DEWALT 20V MAX* XR 2.0 Ah lithium ion battery packs (DCB203) that provide 33% more capacity than standard DEWALT 20V MAX* battery packs.
Additionally, these battery packs feature a fuel gauge allowing users to check the state of charge remaining in their pack during use.
The DCD790's ergonomics feature a slim profile comfort grip handle for ideal balance and a light feel. The drill/driver is a compact 7.2 inches front-to-back length in a lightweight 3.5-pound package for tight space and overhead use.
It has a 2-speed transmission for fast application speeds — 0-600/0-2,000 RPM — when drilling and fastening.
A ratcheting metal chuck provides tight bit gripping and a repositioned LED work light minimizes chuck shadow for visibility when working in confined spaces.
