Heads up: long days and beautiful weather are here, and that means you can't keep putting off that honey-do list.

To wit: The Dewalt MAX Cordless Drill and Impact Driver has everything you need to drive even the dullest screw through the most stubborn of knots, and it's 100 bucks off.

This bundle is on par with the best price of the year so far. When you consider that the impact driver and drill on their own are both $159 each, you're getting both for less than the price of one. That's over 40% off, too!

Dewalt is a fan-favorite brand here at Yahoo, and for good reason. All of the tools are loaded up with useful features. The Dewalt Impact Driver has three LEDs around the chuck that make it easy to see what you're doing without casting shadows and provides enough power to drive nails through the hardest, most gnarled wood.

You can also load bits with just one hand — ideal for when you're at the top of a ladder and need to keep a grip on something. Due to the smaller size of the impact driver, it fits into tighter spaces than a traditional drill.

Of course, if you want something a bit quieter (the impact driver can be pretty loud), the standard drill is plenty powerful on its own. It also has an LED and weighs just 3.6 pounds. A little on the heavy side, but roughly the same as most corded drills.

With over 42,000 flawless ratings, weekend warriors everywhere love this tool bundle.

"Great tool set," one fan wrote. "What more can I say? It's Dewalt. The package price these two tools come up at makes this such a good buy for two quality tools. Add two batteries, the charger and the carry bag, you can't go wrong. Built for the serious DIY enthusiast, priced for the hobbyist."

One mechanic wrote that this bundle is a fantastic choice for automotive work. "I work in the service department of a motorcycle dealership and this impact driver seems to be every bit as good as the much more expensive competitive models. It has 133 foot-pounds of torque, which is good enough for just about any car wheel lug nuts."

And with Father's Day only a few weeks away, keep it in mind for gifts. You might be surprised at the results: "I got this for my husband because he really wanted it. He loves it! The great thing is he doesn't complain about assembling things anymore."

Most users loved this set of tools, but one reviewer wished they had an easier way to tell how much charge remained. "I would prefer to have a charge level indication on the batteries, but no other complaints."

Another shopper echoed that, saying: "A really great set of tools. The battery is a little light on the charge, so it’s worth about an hour or two of life, but that is the only real downside of these."

Everyone should have a few tools around the house, and this bundle is a great starting point.
