DEWALT introduces two new drills 20 April 2022

DEWALT has introduced two new drills - the DCD800 and DCD805 for work in confined, hard to reach areas without sacrificing performance.

DEWALT says each drill’s high output brushless motor provides users with up to 40% more unit watts out in a compact design boasting a tool head that is ½ inch shorter in length. “DEWALT is committed to delivering new, innovative solutions that meet the demands of those in the construction industry and the trades,” said Brandon Stumpf, senior product manager, at Stanley Black & Decker. “The upgrades to these latest DEWALT drills reflect our promise to our users to make even the most essential tools more powerful and ergonomic, ultimately contributing to more productive jobsites.”

Engineered for optimal speed, control and precision, the drills feature a high-speed transmission using a variable trigger and two speed settings as well as high bit retention with a ½ inch metal ratcheting chuck. The 20V MAX* XR® brushless ½ inch drill/driver (DCD800) completes a wide range of drilling jobs with up to 2,000 rpm in second speed when drilling into construction materials. The 20V MAX* XR® brushless ½ inch hammer drill/driver (DCD805) quickly drills into masonry material with up to 34,000 bpm through an integrated hammer mode function.  

Each drill features an adjustable three position, three mode LED light producing up to 70 lumens to enhance visibility, including LED spotlight mode, a twenty minute shut off function allowing for extended work time in dimly lit work areas. The tools also accept the Tool Connect™ chip that syncs with the Tool Connect™ Site Manager App for seamless worksite asset management.
