The line of heavy-duty XRP™ hammerdrill/drill/drivers and XRP lithium ion drill includes three 18-V models (DCD950KX, DCD950VX, and DCD940KX), three 14.4-V models (DCD930KX, DC930VX, and DCD920KX) and a 12-V model (DCD910KX). Additionally, the new line includes an XRP™ lithium ion 18-V hammerdrill/drill/driver (DCD970KL) with a nano-phosphate lithium ion battery that is backwards compatible with more than 40 tools in the company’s 18-V system. Each hammerdrill/drill/driver has a patented, three-speed transmission that matches each speed to the appropriate application, offering professional end users maximum performance for various applications. The speed shifting control is now positioned front to back and has positive detent stops, allowing users to easily shift between various speeds. Additionally, the new drills now have a two-collar design that enables users to quickly transition among drill, screwdriver, and hammer drilling modes without changing the clutch setting. The XRP lithium ion and XRP drills are built with a high-power, high-efficiency frameless motor that delivers increased performance for drilling and fastening applications. All the hammerdrills are equipped with an exclusive chuck that self-tightens throughout the application to prevent bits from slipping.
