Systainer insert for PDC 18/4 with Airstream batteries
« on: November 17, 2017, 11:12 PM »
I just purchased the basic PDC 18/4, P/N 574700 and the P/N 708222 plastic insert does work with Airstream batteries.

Hey, @Ahheiss. I want to make sure that I'm understanding your question correctly.

Are you asking if 708222 is the correct insert for the current (Airstream) version of the PDC 18/4 (574700)? If so, yes, that is the correct part number for the insert.

I have a related question.   Is there a basic PDC offering with an insert that would hold 4.2 Ah batteries (499849) and their TCL 3 charger? If so what is the part number of that basic drill/systainer?  Thanks.

FWIW, I got last year's PDC for Christmas.  I think the tool is the same, but the charger a batteries are the TCL3 and BPCC18, respectively.  The set parts were pretty much a jumble in the systainer after shipping, but the attached photos show how the charger and the two batteries all fit in.  Hope this helps!
