The 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver (PCCK607LB) boasts more runtime as well as 20% more power and improved bit retention compared to the prior model (PCC601). Its efficient brushless motor, high-speed transmission, and 1.5Ah battery deliver up to 370 Max Watts Out (MWO) to maximize drilling and fastening speeds. A two-speed gear transmission delivers 0-450 Rotations Per Minute (RPM) in low speed for high-torque applications and 0-1,800 RPM in high speed for maximum fastening speed. Since compact size is an important feature for professionals, the 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver is just 7.4 inches in length and weighs only 3.3 pounds with its battery.

Both brushless unit kits come with two Lithium Ion, professional-grade batteries and each tool hosts an onboard state of charge indicator to gauge battery life over the course of a job. Finally, each tool is designed with an over-molded grip for comfort and an LED work light that stays on for 20 seconds at a time to help illuminate dark work areas. With rubber bumpers on the sides of the tool and a belt hook for storage at arm's reach, each of these two new members in the Brushless EDGE™ family of tools is a top choice for the residential contractor.

The new 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Drill/Driver (PCCK607LB) and 20V MAX* Lithium Ion Brushless Impact Driver (PCCK647LB) will be available at select Lowe's stores in September 2016 and nationally at Lowe's and independent retailers in November 2016. Priced at $139 MSRP (kitted with two batteries) each, they will come with a three-year limited, one-year service, and 90-day money-back guarantee.

*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
