If you are in the market for a high-quality power drill (and it is safe to assume that you are) then you have come to the right place.
Those already familiar with the world of power tools most likely do not need to be introduced to DeWalt.
For those that are newer to the tool game, know that DeWalt is one of, if not the biggest, manufacturer of high-quality power tools that exist today.
Their reputation is mostly for making very high-quality products, but of course, we wouldn’t want to judge the quality of the DCK240C2 on that of previous tools, would we?
Of course not. We will do an up-close and personal look at this tool in the review that follows, but for now, there is some preliminary information that we can give to help you understand what we are looking at.
We will start by mentioning that this is a high-end drill, which makes it better for people that are going to use it frequently.
However, if you do fall into that category, there is a lot to appreciate.
It’s lightweight, very versatile, and optimized for accessing tight spaces. For the user that utilizes tools often enough to appreciate these features it really is a great buy.
But does this mean that it is worth paying extra for? Read on and decide for yourself.
Package Weight: 8.95 pounds
Dimensions: 15.1 x 6.4 x 9.9 inches
Power Source: Battery
Maximum No Load RPM: 1500
You get a drill and a driver with this combo set, which is really great for people who are just starting out in the world of tools and trying to improve and grow their collection.
While you may not have an immediate need for the driver, chances are, if you continue down the path of a do-it-yourselfer, the need will eventually arise.
When that happens, you will be glad to have gotten a good deal on a combo set.
Conversely, of course, if you already have a similar driver and/or drill, you are probably going to find it much more economical to shy away from the combo option.
If you are looking for a tool that won’t leave you too fatigued or sore after a long day of work, this tool will be perfect for you.
The drill features a weight of only a few pounds which should make it easy to work with for extended periods.
The dimensions of the product are also optimized for small spaces. Simply put, the smaller the drill, the easier it will be to work on a variety of different projects. You don’t always have to work with awkward angles, but when you do it is certainly nice to have something that is compact.
The grip is also designed to be ergonomic, which will further ensure that users will enjoy a comfortable experience with this tool.
The motor featured on this drill is also impressive. The unit features multiple speed settings which allow you the option to operate the drill at a rate of 0-450 rotations per minute, or 0-1500 rotations per minute.
The variable speed component, as well as the high rate of maximum power, are both attributes that will serve to further increase what you can accomplish with the drill.
More speed settings mean more nuance to each individual job.
Like many modern high-end tools, the DCK240C2 puts a high emphasis on the visibility of your workpiece.
This is accomplished through the placement of three LED lights near the chuck of the tool that light up as you work so that darkened spaces aren’t a problem to work in.
This is the sort of feature that you may not always have much of a need for, but when situations do arise you will probably be glad to have it.
Does the tool come with a carrying case?
More like a carrying bag, but yes. The material is cloth, and not at all job site rugged, but it certainly gets the job done.
Can the drill be used on concrete?
While some users have had success drilling into concrete, this is not the intended use of the tool. Using the drill on concrete may very well cause damage that is not covered by the warranty.
What kind of warranty does it come with?
DeWalt offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, 1-year of free maintenance, and a 3-year limited warranty.
The majority of people that use the DeWalt DCK240C2 are very happy with it. People appreciate the versatility, the ergonomic design, and the high-quality motor.
The biggest complaints that we have seen leveraged against the tool pertain to the battery. Many users are saying that after several months, the quality of the battery life diminishes fairly significantly.
It is hard to tell if this is a small defect that not every drill encounters or something that shoppers should count on.
The problem can be fixed by replacing the battery, but, of course, this may not be appealing to shoppers so soon after purchasing their tool.
So, what are we thinking here? It’s a really good tool, right? Forgetting for a moment that the DCK240C2 is fairly pricey, the features should appeal to most users.
Everyone wants a lightweight, compact, versatile drill, right?
Sure, it is expensive and there are some problems with the battery, but if you can overlook these factors, it may very well make a great addition to your collection.
Of course, our job is not to tell you what to buy. We hope only to simplify the process of selecting a drill, and to that end, we hope we were helpful!
