DeWALT Cordless Impact Driver

Impact drivers combine hammering action with high torque rotation to drive screws more easily than with a standard drill/driver. The 20-volt DeWALT 3-Speed Cordless Impact Driver (Model #DCF895L2) comes with two lithium-ion batteries and a brushless motor that increases runtime.

The DeWALT cordless impact driver has three LED work lights mounted on the front to illuminate the work, and a quick release chuck that allows you to change bits in no time.

The DeWALT cordless impact driver is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: You know, I like big things in little packages, especially when I’m over here in the power tools section. And DeWalt’s got one for you that I want to highlight. This is their new impact driver. And I like this for a couple of reasons.

First of all, this is their first cordless, brushless motor. Now all of that less, actually equals more for you, because having a brushless motor means you’re going to get more run time on your battery. And it does run on a 20-volt lithium-ion battery.

Another feature that I like is—look at this—when I press the trigger, three LED lights come on as opposed to, say, just one, so it illuminates your work surface better. Another feature that I like is if I need to change my bit, I just simply push it right in there and it locks into place. And to release it, I just press this little button right here and it comes right out.

It’s pretty lightweight—it weighs just over three pounds. Another thing I like about it is it’s got a little clip here so that I can hook it on to my blue jeans or my tool belt. The kit comes with two rechargeable batteries and a charger.

So all of that, I think, it’s a pretty darn good tool.
