Product Description

This 12-volt extender drill kit with quick connect bit change system features a 24-position clutch With screw Icons, and 3-finger trigger for comfort and control in all positions. The Black & Decker XD1200K includes battery, charger, 15 accessories, and kit box.

If your work requires you to drill or drive in a lot of tight or awkward places (under sinks, overhead, inside cabinets, between pipes, etc.), this Black & Decker five-position drill/driver may be the perfect tool for you. The drill features a compact design and swiveling head that rotates 90 degrees front and back of center, with 45-degree stops along the way. A straightaway, inline stop even provides added reach for tight spaces in which a standard power drill might not fit. Lightweight and nimble, this Black & Decker drill is extremely maneuverable, as well. A comfort-grip handle and three-finger trigger provide excellent control, while a 24-position clutch and variable speeds of 0 to 700 rpm allow the drill to power through wood, steel, or masonry without damaging bits or stripping screws along the way. --Carl Thress

Ideal for drilling holes and driving screws in wood, metal, and plastic, this 1/4-inch hex cordless drill/driver from Black & Decker features an innovative five-position swiveling head that gets into even the hardest to reach areas. Offering a three-finger trigger for a secure hold as you work, the XD1200K gives you quick and easy access to tight corners, under sinks, around pipes, and in other close quarters. Its first position is that of a standard drill; the second puts you at a 45 degree angle; third is straight-up or in-line; fourth is a backwards 45-degree angle; fifth is a right angle position. Beyond its versatility, the XD1200K boasts a fast and easy seven-bit changing system, a pull and release collar for effortless accessory changes, and a 24-position clutch for optimum control when driving. A 1/4-inch keyless chuck and spring-loaded NiCad batteries that slide in and out make for a user-friendly design, so you can get more done in less time. This handy drill comes with six drill bits, four screwdriving bits, five nut drivers, keyless chuck, one 12-volt battery, charger, and storage case.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great Product
    This product is really nice. It is light and convenient, plus I like the movable head....more info
  • Just what I need
    I have a joint hypermobility problem and can't deal with heavy objects for any length of time. This drill is light enough that I can work with it for more than short periods.

    The angle adjustment is extremely useful although I wish it came with more bits. It has a decent amount of power for smaller jobs, but have come across jobs that it just can't handle.
    Overall, I am very pleased with this drill....more info
  • Durable, powerful, versitile necessity!
    I've owned this Black and Decker drill/driver model for around 7 or 8 years. It's been a lifesaver to say the least. I also own a 'real' corded drill that I use for jobs that require serious torque, but in the 8 years I've owned that, I've only used it three or four times.

    This Black and Decker cordless drill/driver on the other hand is by far my favorite tool that I own. I've done everything from installing blinds to assembling a wooden swingset with this drill (the battery did not last through the entire swingset, but it did last for several hours). One reviewer commented he could not find a replacement battery, but honestly, in 8 years I haven't needed one. I whole heartedly recommend this tool as an all purpose household drill/driver. Have realistic expectations - If you plan do more than just household maintenance and repair tasks or small projects, you will need to invest in another drill.

    1. The 5 position head - a nice feature that comes in handy once in a while.
    2. "Quick Connect Bit Change System" - it's so easy to drill a pilot hole, switch to a screwdriver bit, and finish the job in a matter of seconds.
    3. Accessories - it comes with an assortment of drill and driver bits, but other hex sets work interchangeably with this driver.
    4. The Battery - charges quickly, holds a charge for a long time, and lasts through several jobs, even with long periods of non-use.
    5. Lefty approved! - drills usually aren't an issue left handed users, but just in case you were wondering, this tool is ergonimically ambidextrous and therefore does not discrimate against us :)

    Cons: After just 8 years, the drill is finally starting to show some wear. ...more info
  • Good product
    This Drill/Driver is great for any projects. Its easy to use. Its a little bulky though. Other then that it's ok. I would recommand it. Price is not too expensive. I bought mind at a great discount....more info
  • very flexible tool----
    Nice compact tool. Fits in some close quarters & makes a good Right
    Angle drill. Only flaw----Batteries might be scarce???...more info
  • Irreplaceble piece of equipment
    I have/had four cordless drills--24v to 9.5v--all B&D Firestorm. I say "had" because this product used to be a Firestorm 18V drill/driver and mine, one day, just quit. Regardless, I view it as the best drill/driver on the market. If there is a downside, it is that B&D lowered it to 12v rather than leaving it at 18v. The swivel head makes inserting screws above your head effortless; swivel the head around and the head gets closer to the work, without your hand getting in the way. The hex lock makes changing screw heads or bits a snap.

    What about my other drills? I use them for, well, drilling, especially the 24V for concrete or well cured wood.

    I HIGHLY recommend this product, and I haven't even bought it yet. I've been looking for a replacement for my 18V and this is as close as I have found. ...more info
  • Powerful, very handy, great price!
    I adore my little power drill! I just moved into my new apartment and it's been perfect for setting up furniture. It's so versatile, I really like that you can position the head in different ways, it makes drilling in tight spaces much easier.

    The design is so comprehensive, there are lots of different power settings, it has the right trigger sensitivity for good control, and there are way too many screw icons for me to use.

    I've been using it all day, setting up various pieces of furniture (bed frame, desk, boards, etc.) and it hasn't shown signs of dying at all. It deserves 5 stars for what I'm using it for!...more info
  • gimmicky, but works
    This drill reminds me of a riddle I heard when I was a kid, "What's the furthest you can be into the woods?"

    The answer: "halfway".

    So why would I need a drill that pivots 180 degrees? After 90 degrees, you're just repeating positions, and I only use 1 or 2 as it is. That being said, this is an okay little drill that has good battery life and gets the job done. my biggest issue is that the drill bits don't fully lock into place, wiggling annoyingly for about 1/4 cm in the socket. After heavy use, i can safely say they're not going anywhere, but i'd prefer a drill that I could tighten the bits with a key, regardless of how much the head pivots....more info
  • Nice tool !
    I have several Black and Decker 12 volt cordless power tools. This one is the most dynamic of them, because it is flexible. It has the same level of power as my standard 12 volt system, yet can get into places the CDC1200K cannot. The "QuickConnect" feature is GREAT if you have the bits to support the 1/4" chuck. I use the other drill for drilling and this one for driving. If you purchase the multi-voltage quick charger ( at amazon or many other places ) you can have a conditioned, charged battery that is ready at a moments notice. If your not building the Trump Tower, these 12 volt drill/drivers are GREAT....more info
  • Good, but should be more powerful, for a 12V
    Item is great, very steady in hand. I charged it only once after I received it from Amazon but been using it on and off multiple times for 3 weeks without having to recharge.
    The included screwdrivers are enough for fixing things here and there in the house.
    Only comment: I would expect more power from a 12V. Sometime I feel that the torque setting does not really work.... They all give me the same torque???
    Overall it's a great product and I recommend it if you want a simple, all-in-one tool for your house. Obviously not for big project, just for fixing things.......more info
  • Cordless driver/drill
    Love it. Makes mildly difficult jobs a breeze. Has just the right amount of power and versatility I need. I highly recommend this product....more info
  • Does Everything I Need it To.
    First of all let me say that I don't know anything about heavy industrial uses for a drill so I am not qualified to speak of such issues as I have never been a tradesman. Further, I have never been asked to take part in any projects in which I had anything to do aside from digging or simple grunt work. Therefore, the other reviewers are far better qualified than I in regards to judging whether this drill is effective in diverse settings. I bought mine strictly for home use. I just got a new condo and the 12V comes in handy for everything I need to do. It drilled holes perfectly for cabinet handles and cabinet knobs. I also made steady use of it for the putting up of window treatments. The model was reliable and I have no complaints. It appears ideal for simple home operations and is a great addition to my toolbox. Also, considering that I got mine for 37 bucks--it's financially a good deal....more info
