DeWalt’s new 12-volt MAX* Drill/Driver is the DCD710S2, part of its 12-volt MAX* lithium-ion line. It weighs 2.4 pounds and has a two-speed transmission with 0-400 and 0-1,500 speeds. A 3/8″ single-sleeve keyless chuck and an included belt hook offer convenience and portability. “Contractors who have tested the tool say they stick the drill in their pouch or clip it on their belt and barely know it’s there,” said Joerg Zellerhoff, a senior product manager at DeWalt. Battery placement at the bottom of the tool allows it to stand up when set down. Sold as part of a kit, in 2010 the DCD710S2 is expected to cost approximately $159.
