Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


DeWalt XR Premium and Compact Drills

The new DeWalt XR extreme runtime line of drills/drivers is expanding. DeWalt combined two technologies in engineering the XR series. They started with the development of their own brushless motor that claims to improve runtime by 57% over standard brushed motors. DeWalt then paired their high efficiency motor with a 20 volt battery that boasts 33% more capacity.


On the XR Premium side of the line, the gear casing and transmission are all metal construction. The chuck is also an all metal design with carbide inserts. Each drill has 3 speeds giving the user an RPM range of 0 – 2000. The compact side of the features a lightweight and ergonomic design. The transmission is 2 speed and offers the same 0 – 2000 RPM as the Premium drills. The power in the XR Compact drills is optimized for light/medium drilling and fastening applications.

Call it Black Friday shopping for the DeWalt crowd out there if you like, but retailers are having a hard time keeping several of these models in stock.
