03 Oct A Really Short Impact Driver and 3 Wrenches from DeWalt
The company has just announced the introduction of the new driver and wrenches in its Atomic Compact Series™, which is part of the 20V MAX* battery system. The 1/4” 3-speed impact driver (DCF850) is the shortest high torque driver ever from DeWalt. It’s shown here as the DCF850P1 kit which includes a tool belt hook, 5 Ah battery, charger and carry bag. The tool is under 4” long and is 8” tall, which is ideal for woodworkers working between joists on decks, installing cabinets and dealing with other tight spots. It has impressive power for driving large screws (1,825 in-lb of torque and 3,250 rpm), an LED light and a variable 3-speed trigger.
Also in the new line-up are a 1/2” impact wrench with a hog ring anvil (DCF921); a 1/2” impact wrench with a detent pin anvil (DCF922); and a 3/8” impact wrench with a hog ring anvil (DCF923). A hog ring anvil is designed for easy socket changes, while a detent pin anvil is for users who require additional socket retention. Each of those tools also boasts a short length and minimal weight for tight-space applications and user comfort. And each delivers up to 300 ft-lbs. of max tightening torque and up to 450 ft-lbs. of max breakaway torque, all at an impressive weight of just 2.5 lbs. (tool only) each. At less than 5” in length, the DCF921 has glass filled nylon housings that help it resist the effects of harsh chemicals and solvents. It has something called Precision Wrench™ Control that provides added control when used in forward/reverse, and a TimberScrew™ mode for performance in wood fastening applications. The LED lights have three modes for varying brightness.
Here’s the complete line-up. (A couple of them are so new they didn’t have their page on the DeWalt website yet so we linked to the search page. Just click on the tool if you end up there…)
