Discussion

Here is Kobalt’s introduction to the new line:

Using the most innovative electronics and brushless motor technology in the industry today, meet the newest generation of Kobalt 24V Max Brushless tools!

The tools are up to 30% more compact, offer 35% faster charging and continue the Kobalt tradition of guaranteed power and performance all at a value.

This seems like typical marketing for new cordless power tools, but there’s some weight behind it.

For instance, compared to Kobalt’s existing brushless drill (KDD 1424A-03), the new model delivers far greater torque – 850 vs 650 in-lbs. The new impact driver delivers 2000 in-lbs max torque, vs 1800 in-lbs for their KID 1324A-03 model.

While not as powerful as Kobalt’s XTR line of premium 24V max cordless power tools, the new generation of core tools do look to deliver worthwhile improvements over their predecessors.
