Not having anything like this to compare with I must admit I am impressed. The versatility of a light and powerful performance, coupled with with the freedom of not having trailing leads makes it a joy around site for those quick and varying located jobs where the set up time out ways time spent on the job itself. I use the tool commercially and reviewed numerous reviews prior to purchase to make sure it was right for me.
Battery life. I soon discovered that even though I had 2 x 9ah and 1 x 6ah batteries. It wasn't long before I realised that medium sized breaking out jobs required reverting back to a 110v power supplied tool unfortunately.
So think hard about the majority of the main task you do!

Questions people have asked owners of the 54V XR FLEXVOLT Brushless 3 Mode Dedicated Cordless SDS-Max Hammer

  1. Kenneth asked on
    Hi. Are the 18 Volt XR batteries compatible with this unit?
    Thanks in advance
    1. Paul. replied on
      Hi. No Im afraid they aren't. 54v batts will fit 18v machines but a 18v batt cannot run a 54v machine.
  2. Alan asked on
    Morning, I am looking a purchasing one of the 54V XR FLEXVOLT Brushless 3 Mode Dedicated Cordless SDS-Max Hammer range but seen quite a few models from the DCH333X2 to the DCH481X2 and a few more, can you confirm the best model and why

    Regards
    1. Jonathan replied on
      Hi. The answer really depends on what you want and do. The DCH333 is a SDS plus which take a smaller size drill/chisel and cheaper bit compared to the DCH481 SDS max that I own. If your drilling holes predominantly for raw plugs or drilling smaller holes and the occasional 25/32mm hole, go 333 but if your drilling generally larger holes or chiselling concrete that needs more than a few mm off, then I would say 481.
      To be honest I was initially worried I had made a mistake going 481 and not corded but recently I have been very impressed and having a few extra batteries plus the Dewalt offer of an extra battery, I have smashed jobs I thought impossible with a battery operated tool. An example, chipped the side of a foundation off (200x150x900mm) using only 2 batteries and core drilled a natural stone wall.
      Again, just think of the tasks you will demand and frequency but the 54v systems is impressive.
      I hope this was of help and good luck with choice.

  3. Reece asked on
    Hi, is this drill capable of making a 4" core hole through concrete engineering block? Also what sort of battery life do you get with 9.0ah batteries (and with what task)?
    1. Paul. replied on
      It would depend on the type of core used. A TCT core would be just about doable as long as you didn't push the machine too hard, and it was not it's sole purpose. In other words don't do it too often. Some people try and fit a diamond core bit. Don't bother. The machine isn't fast enough and the adaptors aren't readily available. Run time always depends on the state of the core used and the material. Look at best to two holes per charge.
