Black & Decker BDCDMT120 The Basics


The BDCDMT120 toolset brings you all of the essential tools you need to take care of any project you might have around the house. The set comes with a drill and six different attachments that do some jobs very easy. They come in a hard case for convenient carry. The 20V motor powers the machine and it’s strong enough to allow you to make cuts and holes in wood and even ceramics. The set is handy because it turns one machine into six different tools with different applications. The Matrix quick connect system makes it easy to change bits in seconds. Let’s see what it offers in more detail.

The Features


Design


 The BDCDMT120 toolset by Black & Decker is a set for every handyman and craftsman. It’s a handy device that can make many tough jobs much easier. The design of the hand drill is excellent, and changing bits was never easier. First, let’s start with the handle. It’s covered in rubber that provides an excellent, firm grip. It’s also ergonomic, so it sits in your palm perfectly.

This system can take care of many different tasks. All you have to do to switch the tool is press on a small white button found on the top of the drill. The bit comes off, and the other one clicks right in. It literally takes 5 seconds to switch bits, which is just great. The set comes with all essential tools you could need for DIY jobs around the house.

Power


Power won’t be an issue with this tool, that’s for sure. It’s powered by a 20V MAX motor. That’s enough power for any job you might have. The motor has 800 RPM at maximum speed and a full battery. It’s one of the most powerful and functional motors you can get today. The different tooltips will allow you to sand, drill, and cut wood with great ease.

Battery


The battery on the BDCDMT1206 is absolutely impressive. It works about 18 hours on a full charge on average, and that’s great because you don’t have to think about recharging it that often. In fact, if you charge the lithium-ion battery fully, it will hold the charge for up to a year and a half. If that’s not impressive – we don’t know what is!

Things we liked about it

There are a couple of things that we liked about this B&D toolset. The first thing is the overall design. It looks nice, and the hard case makes it easy to carry anywhere. The most prominent trait of this tool has to be the Matrix Quick connect system which is one of the best we’ve seen so far. It’s so simple; even a child can do it.

You can transform this battery-powered drill into 6 different tools, and that means that you’ll save a substantial amount of cash. So, it’s affordable, but it’s also convenient. Since everything fits nicely in the carry case, getting from one place to another becomes effortless. Instead of carrying 6 different heavy tools, you only have to bring a 14-pound case in one hand.

Q

Things we didn’t like

Well, even though this is a beneficial tool, it’s not designed for heavy-duty applications. If you want to cut through thick wood or plastic, the battery will drain much quicker than we like. If you push the motor to its limits, it won’t work for a long time.

Another thing that most people complain about when it comes to this toolset are the tools. Some of them work well, but others are not so practical. The oscillating tool is not powerful enough to get the job done.

General Impressions


If you are looking for a tool that will make most small jobs around the house easy, this is a great pick. It looks good, it’s easy to control, the Matrix quick connects system makes it easy to change tips. However, keep in mind that this isn’t a tool you should use on heavy-duty jobs. With that said, it’s a toolkit for every household. Here are some other cordless drills that you might want to take a look at, too. 

Black & Decker is a company known for making great tools, and this one won’t disappoint you either. It’s affordable compared to what you would pay when buying all the tools separately. 

Conclusion


The Conclusion Finishing DIY projects around the house becomes a breeze with the BDCDMT120. The tool can replace 6 tools, and the quick change system makes it easy to switch from the impact driver to the sander, drill, or any other available attachment. It’s beneficial for both beginners and professionals because it’s compact and easy to use.

This tool will be your best friend when you need to get things done, but don’t expect it to work as a full-size tool its replacing. The battery can hold a charge for months, and the motor provides plenty of power – this is a tool you can’t go wrong with!
