Black & Decker BD4KITCDCMSL – The Basics
Like we said before, Black & Decker tools are a synonym for power tools all around the world. They are one of the most established tool manufacturers all over the planet because of their high-quality tools.
The BD4KITCDCMSL 4-piece tool set is destined for all tool-lovers, and it’s a great overall set to have in the garage as a homeowner.
The set contains the LDX120 Drill/Driver, the super-useful BDCMS20 MOUSE® Detail Sander, a powerful and easy to control BDCCS20 Circular Saw, and a helpful safety BDCF20 LED Work Light. The set also contains a couple of 20V MAX batteries and all the bits and blades you need for the tools.
The good thing about this cordless set is that they use the same 20V MAX batteries like other Black & Decker battery-powered tools, so you can expand your collection without buying any extra batteries. We will now take a closer look at each tool that makes this great set.
The LDX120 Drill/driver is one of the most popular cordless tools made by this company. It’s compact and lightweight, providing plenty of control in everyday use. The unit weighs only 2.5lbs so that you won’t feel any fatigue even after prolonged use. The grip sits well in hand, and it’s covered with an anti-slip coating for increased control. The drill also has an integrated LED work light that allows you to make precise drills at all times.
Even though is small and compact, the motor provides 115 in-lbs of torque and a maximum RPM of 650. It works best for woodworking, but you can also use it to drill holes in concrete and metal. One of the best features of the drill/driver is the ability to work in tight spaces where other tools won’t fit.
BDCCS20 Circular Saw
The BDCCS20 Circular Saw is a tool for amateurs and professionals alike. It does offer less power than a standard circular saw, but you can use it far away from an outlet, so you get a lot of practical use. The high torque 5-1/2-inch motor powering the tool will make quick work of any cutting job you might have.
Since it works on batteries, you can use this saw anywhere. It’s almost effortless to use due to the low weight and the anti-slip coating. One of the most impressive features has to be the bevel adjustment option that allows you to set the cutting angle between 45 and 90 degrees. It’s a feature that most other similar saw lack, and a beneficial one indeed. The only thing it’s not good for are heavy-duty applications, but that should be obvious for a professional.
BDCMS20 MOUSE® Detail Sander
The Mouse detail sander is one of the best cordless sanders you can buy. It’s a compact and lightweight tools designed to make the hardest sanding jobs feel like a breeze. It can reach tight spaces with ease and dramatically speed-up your furniture restoration projects and other DIY home jobs.
The powerful 20V MAX battery powers the motor that produces up to 12,000 oscillations per minute. That’s more than enough to get most sanding jobs done. Upon purchase, you get some sanding paper, and you can find new ones in any hardware store. The detail finger paper is also included, and it helps you sand off the tightest of spaces. The dust collector catches all of the dust, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time cleaning your workpiece.
BDCF20 LED Work Light
The BDCF20 LED work light is the last member of this 4-piece set. It’s a practical work light powered by the same 20V MAX battery. The light has a low focus, which makes it easy to work next to it. The 70 lumen of light is more than enough than what you need to work in low-light areas. The head rotates and has eight positions you can lock it in. One charge will provide you with 11 hours of light.
Accessories and Warranty
Every purchase includes two batteries, a battery charger, but that’s not all. You also get a double-ended driver bit, a saw blade, a circular saw wrench, and three sandpapers. The limited 2-year warranty covers everything except fall-damage and improper use of the tools.

Things we liked about it
We liked the fact the set has all of the tools you need for woodworking. They work with the same batteries, and the tools are mostly handy. The Detail mouse sander is our favorite tool in this set because it gets the job done where other devices failed. The drill/driver has plenty of power and a built-in LED light that makes some tasks much more manageable.
Things we didn’t like
Well, we mostly liked the set, but we didn’t like the fact that the batteries deplete really quickly if you push the capabilities of the circular saw. If you try to cut some thicker or harder wood, you will need to change batteries every 15 minutes.
People are satisfied with what they get for the money they spent. The tools work great for many DIY handymen around the world. The only thing they complain about is the power of the LED light.
If you are looking for a toolset that has only the four of the most used tools, this could be exactly what you’re looking for. These four tools have plenty of power, and they will help you get most sanding, cutting, sawing, and drilling jobs done quickly and easily. The 20V MAX batteries are great and enable you to take your work wherever you want. You only have to make sure that they are fully charged before you go to a job site. If not used, the batteries will hold a charge for 18 months at a time which is an excellent feature for people who don’t like to think about batteries. Overall it’s a great little set to have around the house.
