The DeWalt DCD970KL is an 18V 1/2" XRP Lilon Hammerdrill. It is considered the best in its class length for balance and control. The hammerdrill uses two XRP nano phosphate Li-Ion batteries that have an extended run-time and battery length. The 1/2" chuck is self-tightening, giving the hammerdrill a better grip on the bit. The DeWalt DCD970KL is powered by a 450 unit watt motor and features an LED worklight that is perfect for work in confined, hard to see spaces. The hammerdrill comes with a 3-speed, all-metal transmission that is perfect for matching the speed of the drill to the task at hand. It includes a 1 hour charger, 2 batteries, a 360 degree side handle and a heavy duty kit box.
