These two subcompact tools, are among the best tools that i’ve ever own. The batteries charge really quickly, the speed, power and versatility of both of the tools are excellent. Amazon provided also a perfect transaction for me.
This is an excellent compact combination, for serious diy or limited professional use, but now quite expensive at nearly £170, compared to the equivalent ‘makita 10. 8v lithium-ion cordless kit with combi drill and impact driver’ for about £130. I recently got mine for just under £140, but the price has jumped a lot since then. I already had the similar dewalt combi pair of impact driver and screwdriver, but really wanted the subcompact drill. This was the cheapest way to get it, with battery and charger, and the extra impact drill and battery are handy to have. These are ideal for getting into confined and awkward spaces, such as inside small wall cabinets. The impact driver is quite noisy, but makes it very easy for driving large screws, 3 inch x no 8, very easily, even in awkward positions, as there is little reaction torque and require little force. The drill/screwdriver has two gear settings, but no impact drilling. The battery capacity is quite small for heavy continuous use, but for normal use lasts many hours, and this makes it better for getting into small awkward spaces. It may be worth getting an extra battery to have on charge while using the drill and impact driver.
I bought mine for just under £130 at screwfix and they are good enough value for money at that price. I would not have been willing to pay more though. Dewalt, hitachi and bosch 18v twin drill kits can be had for not much more, £160 to £180 (screwfix again) and by far more capable than this 10. 8v pack with the added bonus of hammer action and larger chuck capacity. This impact driver is my first and a great little tool as long as you can put up with the noise i call it ‘the rattler’. It is much less effort than a traditional drill/driver with no damage to screw heads and no need for heavy pressure behind the driver. I have driven a lot of 3 and 4 inch 8s and 10s with ease with this tool. I have been using mine with a wera rapidaptor and wera extra tough bits. I find the normal impact driver bits shatter by far too easily and can be quite dangerous in that respect, especially if you do not wear safety glasses every time you use the tool. I see reviews raving about the great battery life. Here are the specifications for the DEWALT DCK211S2 10:
- DCD710 10.8V Drill driver with 10mm chuck
- DCF815 10.8V Impact driver
- DCD710 features 15+1 position adjustable torque control
- DCF815 features 3 LED ‘Halo’ ring, providing maximum illumination to work piece
- DCF815 features 6.35mm ‘drop in’ hex retention, allowing 25mm bits to be inserted directly

Reviews from purchasers :
- Excellent Combo
- very pleased with supplier and product
- What a great drill set
Very happy with this purchase impact driver very powerful for the size and the drill is also powerful for the size and record carryback.
Will do exactly what you need it to do, 10. 8 range gives you 107n of force enough to do almost anything with, with them both being close to 1kilo each, top deal 5/5.
This is an excellent combination of power tools. They are lightweight and compact and deliver a punch with the new 10. 8v li-ion batteries which give you full power to the end of charge. If you are looking for this type of rechargeable power tool look no further you won’t be disappointed. The price is excellent value for money.
These are by far the best drills i’ve ever owned. Even though they are the 10. 8v drills they are powerful, but much lighter than the 18v drills, so easier to use. I use them for home/diy use, not heavy duty trade use, but they are perfect for my needs, the batteries charge very quickly too, so waiting for a battery to charge is never a problem. I’d recommend these to anyone as you can feel the quality when you use these.
Got this for my husband for christmas and he loves it. Although you would think a small drill like this can’t handle big jobs he has used this for everthing from motorcycle maintenance to replacing a window.
Have had a kitchen fitted and the workmen all had this set. As a keen diy’er i went on line immediately and found amazon to be the cheapest. Arrived within a couple of days, with free postage, and i started using them straight away. Phenomenal piece of equipment. No need for anymore painfull wrists using a screwdriver.
I write this in defense of the 10. 8v as a number of reviewers compare this to larger voltages & jobs which are too big ?. Of course this will give them problems but if you use them sensibly for what they were designed to do they are unbeatable. I have bought a couple of spare batteries which really are necessary but the capacities are clearly stated so the complaints about battery life are worthless. My allotment is entirely raised beds full width, 3 planks high, 30ft long, 4ft wide plus my neighbour’s (much,much bigger). I have driven/drilled thousands upon thousands of screws/pilot holes for the verticals & joining pieces effortlessly. ( max screw 3′ x 10, majority 1. 5′ x 8 )i personally have no hesitation in recommending this equipment whatsoever. I just ask that reviewers remember what the equipment is designed for.
Just great, small but powerful ,very light. Charges up very quickly another batt would be handy?. Shame extra batt are so expensive.
Fantastic piece of kit, well worth the money.
Impact driver is the best part of this kit with the 3 led light and its compact design matched with its power its fantastic for working on the car or anything else you can through at it. The drill is a little useless other than to have as a back up. The bag isn’t all that great either as its not really big enough once you have some drill bits in there but is fairly well made. All in all it’s a good bit of kit but i have given my drill to the girlfriend to use.
