By Anthony Capkun
March 3, 2022 – Dewalt’s 20V Max brushless compact stud and joist drill with Flexvolt Advantage technology drills up to 495 7/8-in. holes per charge (2-in. SPF wood using 7/8-in. auger bit when used with DCB609 Flexvolt battery, sold separately).
Suitable for electricians, among others, the drill has a hex quick-change chuck for simple bit changes, and is available with a 7/16-in. chuck or 1/2-in. chuck.
The brushless motor produces up to 1800 UWO (unit watts out), and the tool’s E-Clutch system shuts down the tool when it binds up. The drill comes with a light, and is Tool Connect chip-ready (chip sold separately), allowing for location monitoring on the jobsite.
