Black and Decker BDC120VA100 – The Basics


Black & Decker is one of the most famous tool manufacturers. They have been around for decades and are known for their high-quality tools that come at affordable prices. The BDC120VA100 drill set is one of their most popular tool sets as it comes with over 100 accessories. The kit contains an impressive collection of drill bits and an LD120 cordless drill/driver.

It’s ideal for any drilling job, and that includes drilling wood, bricks, concrete, and even metal sheets. The drill has a 24-position clutch that prevents stripping and overdriving of screws. The handy carry and organizer case holds all bits and pieces of the set and makes it possible to take your work anywhere.

It is the perfect tool to have in the garage because you never know when you’ll have to drill some holes. It has all the bits you need so you won’t have to spend any extra money on that. The kit also comes with a manual screwdriver that accepts all of the tips, so you can drive your screws manually in hard to reach areas. It’s time we take a closer look at the drill and accessories that come with this toolkit.

The Features


LD120 Drill/Driver


The LD120 drill/driver gives you a lot of value for the money. It can deliver up to 300 in. lbs. of torque, and that’s enough to drill holes and drive screws through wood, plastic, and metal. The 24-position clutch provides precision and increases control but also prevents stripping of screws. The drill produces up to 750 RPM, which is more than what you need to get most home improvement jobs done quickly and easily.

The weight of the drill is 4.2 pounds, and it’s9 inches long. Since it’s so compact and lightweight, you can work on overhead spaces, weird angles, and areas with little room. It’s the ideal tool for assembling furniture and drilling holes because you won’t feel any fatigue even after using the device for hours at a time. The 3/8-inch chuck is a standard feature for many similar drills, and it allows quick and easy bit replacements. The drill also has a small built-in storage compartment where you can hold the bits you need and access them at any given time.

The unit runs on the standard Black & Decker Lithium-ion battery that’s a part of most cordless tool combo sets made by this company. The battery is very powerful, and it can hold a charge for 500 days if you don’t use the tool. The power charger has a fast charging option that recharges 80% of the battery in less than two hours, so that’s also very useful.

Accessories and warranty


The BDC120VA100 kit has one hundred parts neatly packed in a plastic case/organizer. It is a kit that comes with many different accessories including drill bits for drilling wood, concrete, and metal. You also get bits for driving screws and even a manual screwdriver with exchangeable tips.

Each drill bit set has at least five bits of different sizes. They vary from 1mm to 12 mm in diameter, and you can use them to drill holes in many different surfaces with ease. The screw-driving bits come in five different sets, four of which can be used with the drill, and a set of adapters for the manual screwdriver. All the bitsand the screwdriver are made of durable steel. The screwdriver has a lockable head, so you can use it to tighten and loosen screws and bolts.

Things we liked about it

In our opinion, this toolset is ideal for every handyman, but also every homeowner. It comes in a compact protective case so that it won’t take up too much room in your garage, but it will help you in many different situations. Drilling holes is the most frequent task for power tools in most homes, and this kit will be more than helpful.

The drill/driver is powerful. It provides up to 750 RPM, and it can make holes through any material with ease. All of the bits you need are included in the toolkit, so you’ll be ready to tackle any drilling job right away. We also like the screwdriver and the accessories that go with it.

Q

Things we didn’t like

Although this is a handy and well-made toolkit, we had issues with the battery. It works well, but it runs out of juice quickly on heavier applications. So, you should either buy a couple of replacement batteries or get a 5ah battery that will more than double the work time.

Most users are happy with the results it provides and the fact that they get to finish DIY home projects much faster than before.The majority of the negative reviews are due to missing parts upon arrival.

Conclusion


Even if you don’t spend a lot of time working on projects in the garage, having a toolkit like the BDC120VA100 is always a good idea. It will help you be prepared for every drilling jobs, and you can pack it up and store it on a shelf when you don’t need it.
