Dewalt DCK655X 6 Tool Combo Kit with Impact Driver Review

(34 Customer reviews) The Dewalt DCK655X 18-Volt XRP 6 Tool Combo Kit with Impact Driver features a set of tools that would be the envy of any DIY enthusiast!

Included in the box is a fast, powerful, Hammer Drill, Circular Saw with carbide tipped blade, Reciprocating Saw, Compact Heavy Duty Impact Driver, Angle Grinder Tool and a High Powered Flood Light with flexible neck!

That’s a lot of tools you are getting there at an extremely good price. To purchase all of these separately would cost way way more!

Ok, so is it any good? No point buying if it’s not up to spec.

Well, with over 34 reviews on Amazon contributing to a solid 4.9 star rating we thought this combo kit was definitely worth taking a closer look at. We also really liked the fact that, at the time of review, out of all of the customer reviews there were no ratings under 4 stars!

Overall, people seem extremely impressed with the Dewalt DCK655X Tool Combo Kit and the fact that they include two 18V XRP DC9096 Ni-Cad battery packs, a one hour charger and a contractor’s bag at this price is very nice indeed.

We think you’ll agree that on paper this looks pretty damn impressive!

Let’s see what the users think…

The Negative Reviews

Here at we like to look at the negatives first. Not that we’re pessimistic – just realistic , and we’re sure that’s really what you need to know first to allow you to see if it’s looking further in to or not.

The negatives in this case are definitely hard to find. We had to search hard throughout the 4 and 5 star reviews to find anything to comment on.

One user made comment of the fact that the Grinder tool uses up the battery power pretty quickly but there is always the second pack to fall back on and a 1 hour quick charger for the exhausted one.

Another user commented that the tool bases do not seem to fully cover the battery packs entirely and wondered whether this would mean they could be knocked off accidentally.

That was it really; pretty awesome reviews for this product all in all.

The Positive Reviews

The overwhelming opinions from all of the impressive reviews for the Dewalt DCK655X Tool Combo Kit are all extremely positive indeed.

Everyone swears by this kit of tools.

One customer had previously been a Makita man through and through but purchased this set as they were on sale. 2 years on he still loves his Dewalt Power Tool set and would recommend them to anyone.

Some commented on the durability of the tools and the fact that they had survived being dropped (one from a ladder!) with no ill effect.

The contractor’s bag is of good quality and comes complete with a shoulder strap.

Most commented that the power of the tools is very impressive and the general operation of the tools is smooth and positive.

A number of reviewers had received this set as a gift and were very happy. That’s one awesome gift, anyone offering!


A couple of people mentioned that the battery life was very good and a great improvement over previous purchases from other manufacturers.

Overall people were impressed by the quality and usability of this offering from Dewalt.


The Conclusion

Would we recommend the Dewalt DCK655X Tool Combo Kit?

Absolutely, as you can see from the user reviews, we would be mad not to!

There was not even one really negative comment from any of the 34 user reviews and this kit offers a complete range of cordless power tools suitable for the home handyman through to the construction site professional. Top this off with a comprehensive hand tool set and you are all set to tackle pretty much anything.
