Black and Decker BD2KITCDDCS Review
Reviewed by: Timothy Henderson
It’s always good to have a toolkit or a combo toolkit around the house because you never know when you’ll need to make some repairs or finish up some home improvement project. The two most frequently used power tools are the drill/driver and the circular saw. This two-piece combo set has only those two tools, and it’s designed for every homeowner.
The drill/driver can be used on a wide range of different applications. You need it to dismantle old furniture and put new pieces together. You use it all the time in the garage, and it’s also handy for drilling holes in wood, and plaster walls. The best thing about this drill is that you can take to a remote job site or anywhere else where your work takes you.
The second tool in this kit is the very convenient cordless circular saw. It’s lightweight and compact, but also very versatile. The saw has an adjustable bevel between 45 and 90 degrees so that you can make difficult without much effort.

Black and Decker BD2KITCDDCS – The Basics
Like we already said in the intro, the BD2KITCDDCS combo set has two amazing tools: the LDX120 Drill/Driver and the BDCCS20 Circular Saw. Both of these tools are versatile, lightweight, and easy to use. They also run on the same 20V MAX battery, which is a standard Black and Decker battery that works with many other cordless tools they make.
The LDX120 drill/driver is a member of many different combo kits by Black and Decker because of it’s practical use and power. You can use it to finish up many different drilling and driving jobs with ease. A single charge will provide you with hours of power, so you won’t have to think about batteries at all. It’s a great device to have because it can help you complete all of those furniture restoring and woodworking projects around the house. You can use it for many different applications, and it will deliver perfect results every time.
The BDCCS20 Circular Saw is one of the most popular cordless saws on the market. It’s compact enough so it can fit in tight spaces, it’s easy to operate, and it’s also safe. But the most significant selling point of this saw is the adjustable angle. Most other similar, even much more expensive saws don’t have that feature. It will help you make ideal cuts between 45 and 90 degrees, and it’s the perfect tool for any woodworking project. So, let’s take a closer look at each device individually.
First of all, the LDX120 drill/driver was made with practicality in mind. It’s compact and lightweight and has made its way into thousands of homes around the world. It’s the perfect tools for drilling holes in hard to reach areas, but it’s also powerful enough to drill holes through metal and concrete.
The drill weighs only 2.5 pounds, so you won’t feel tired after using it for a more extended period. It also helps you get plenty of control and maneuverability. The grip is made of anti-slip rubberized materials. It’s ergonomic and sits well in hand. The built-in LED light located below the tip illuminates the area you are working on making sure you get precise results every time.
The powerful motor provides up to 115 in-lbs of torque, and it can produce up to 650 RPM. You can use it on most materials including wood, plastic, plaster, and metal sheets. The battery will hold a charge for 18 months if not used, and it has juice for about 5 hours of work time. Over 90% of users are more than happy with the power and value of this fantastic tool.
BDCCS20 Circular Saw
The BDCCS20 circular saw is one of the best cordless saws on the market. It’s got a high torque motor driving the 5.5-inch blade. The saw is handy and can help you make those problematic angled cuts with ease. You can use it to cut through wooden beams, plaster walls, planks, and so on. You won’t have issues with the power as it has enough to cut through the hardest wood.
You can adjust the saw according to the job. You can make cuts from 45 to 90 degrees by using the bevel adjustment. The saw makes precise and even cuts from the get-go, so you won’t have to even out the piece you are working on later. Like other tools that fall into the 20V max collection, this one also has a rubberized grip with an anti-slip coating. It weighs only 6lbs so that you won’t have a hard time controlling and maneuvering it.
Safety is one of the most important features when it comes to circular saws, and this one is very safe to use. It’s got a metal safety shroud that will shield your hands from the blade and your eyes from the debris. You can take it off, but that’s not advised because of the risk of serious injuries.
Accessories and warranty
Every purchase comes with some accessories. They include one LBXR20 20V MAX battery, a battery charger, a double-ended driver bit for the drill/driver, and a 5.5″ circular saw blade. That means that you get everything you need to get to work immediately.
The 2-year limited warranty covers all internal damage, including the motor, but doesn’t cover physical damage or the one caused by improper use. You will have to send the tools to the closest repair shop and wait for 30 days to get it back in case something doesn’t work.

Things we liked about it
We absolutely liked both tools when it comes to power and versatility. They are versatile and durable, and they make difficult jobs more manageable. The drill has plenty of power for most drilling jobs, and it’s very lightweight and easy to control. The saw is compact and easy to use, but the feature we liked the most is the bevel adjustment. It can help you make difficult cuts in seconds, which is nice.
Things we didn’t like
We didn’t like the fact that the 20V MAX battery dies in about 15 to 20 minutes of heavy use. If you need to use the tool for hours, think about getting a 5ah battery instead. We like our tools in tool bags, so that’s another thing we didn’t like about this combo set.
Over 70% of users have given this combo set a 5 out of 5 because of its power and compact size. Less than 5% of users are not happy with what they bought, so it’s safe to say that this is one very well-made and useful combo kit indeed.
If you’re a person that likes to spend time doing home improvement projects, but you don’t want to get a huge kit that has 7-8 tools, the BD2KITCDDCS could be what you’re looking for. You do get only two tools, but both, the drill/driver, and the circular saw are one of the best cordless tools on the market. Your life will become much easier for a double-digit price tag
