If It Breaks, Buy Something Else, Don’t Repair or Use Warranty
I have several 18-volt batts and chargers and tools, so I looked for a compact, impact driver. I got my 1st one on Father’s Day 2015. Now, I don’t use this tool daily, weekly, or monthly, for that matter. But when I do use it, it’s usually strong and hard for several hours or days at a time. So this past fall (2016), I’m installing some shelving and lattice around the deck and all of sudden the spindle stops spinning–the motor still runs but the bit won’t spin. The website says the tool has a 3-yr limited warranty. I take to my local HD and they send it to off for “repair evaluation” ($20). 3 weeks I get a call that the repair is $167 (look at the price above). So I got a new for Xmas 2016.
Awesome. I should have bought one 10 years ago!
Wow. I bought this thing after watching the pros who finished my basement using impact drivers the past few months. I’m just a homeowner hack who uses tools here and there around the house fixing small stuff and have always just used a plain old 18v Dewalt compact driver/drill. That did the job but I was never blown away with it that’s for sure. However, this impact driver is the MAN! I just changed all the hinges on my doors from brass to satin nickel hinges and this thing had me swapping those babies out in no time. I banged out each door(3 hinges each) in less than 3 minutes without taking the door off the hinges. I bought the Dewalt 40 piece flextorq driving set that’s made for impact drivers and that along with this tool was one of the best things I’ve bought for my house in a long time. If you are more than a homeowner hack like me than you might want/need Dewalt’s stronger industrial level impact drivers with more bells and whistles(ie 3 speeds, 20v, more torque) but I would find it hard to imagine a normal homeowner needing more power than this tool. It has plenty of power! Great buy.
A great tool for contractor use
A great tool for contractor use. As long as you have plenty of charged batteries these drills will keep up with what I consider medium to light heavy duty use. Sometime a corded drill is the only way to go. But in the HVAC trade 90 percent of the time this is all we need. Residential use is a bit overkill and Dewalt makes a wonderful 12 volt series. Go with the 20 volt if you are upgrading. We have so many 18 volt tools its hard to upgrade just because the 20 volt is the new fad. Make sure you check the capacity of the batteries. 20 volt batteries are not all the same capacity.
Awesome, awesome, awesome.
So much easier for driving fasteners than my DeWalt 18v drill/driver that it is astonishing. It is also much, much lighter and handier than my 18-volt drill.
Dewalt for the win
I bought this for my dad as a Father’s Day gift as he already had a Dewalt drill and batteries and so the bare tool was a good option. He is constantly doing work around the house and for family and so I figured this was a great tool to add to his collection.
Impact Drivers are the Unicorns of Drill type things.
So I first read about this from a blog who talked about the magic of an impact driver. I thought it was hype until I tried ti. I haven’t touched any of my other drills since. This is really the most amazing tool I’ve ever bought. I’m able to screw in 2x4s in my basement with the littlest of effort. I accidentally bought the wrong battery type, since my other dewalt drills run off of the 20V lithium… but I’m very satisfied with this impact driver and as a dewalt loyalist, this fits the bill perfectly.
This is the Drill You Need
When I visited my local auto repair facility to have a transfer tank installed in my truck, I noticed the mechanic was using battery powered tools to fasten things instead of his air tools. I asked him why and he said it is much easier to operate a battery powered impact wrench than it is a air powered tool. He said its lighter and provides as much torque as he needs to fasten small nuts and drill holes. He said the driver is not strong enough to tighten wheel nuts, but it can do everything else.
My New Drill
I have nearly quit using drills to drive anything. Oh, I still use them for drilling holes, but for nearly everything else, I use this. I haven’t used this one much. My Makita, Ridgid, and Milwaukee all clamor for attention. This is at least as good as they are. It is probably better than the Milwaukee simply because the Milwaukee is a 12V. I wasn’t like Amazon was giving this away, but the price was very good and there was a $25.00 off thingie if one purchased over $100.00 in DeWalt stuff. Need I say more? Did I need my arm twisted? This is a great tool. If you have never used one, run by the Depot and see if they have one on display. They have recently (late 2013-early2014). Try it. Then order one from Amazon. (It’s cheaper.) You’ll be glad that you did. (This is an unpaid non-political unadvertisement.)
Why didn’t I get one of these fifteen years ago?
Drives 1/4 inch lag screws through two 2x’s just fine. Does not have enough torque to loosen camber adjusting bolts on my 12 year old car. DeWalt has several models of impact driver with different chucks and different torque ratings. After I bought this one, I figured out it’s the lowest rating, but it does everything I want it to do – sistering joists being the tough work and simple driving of drywall screws into dimensional lumber for backout framing being the light work. It’s great to have the impact driver as a companion to a drill. Having both means you can have a pilot bit in the drill and a screwdriver bit in the impact to work right along without changing bits. The impact is overall smaller, so it fits in more places. The impact does the jobs that require more torque.
Unfathomably Strong Driver
Let’s be honest. It looks like the small child’s drill, but holy cow, this this is epic. Just for fun, we took a 2.5″ square bit screw, stacked 2×4’s to see how deep we could bury a screw head. We drilled THROUGH a 2×4!!! It just didn’t stop. It drove so hard we pushed it completely through the top 2×4 leaving just a hole. Blew my mind.
