Dewalt's NEW DCF885C2 20V MAX Compact Impact Driver Kit

  • Maximize Your Productivity – 20V MAX 


    This September 2011, Dewalt released a new and certainly improved line of 20V MAX compact, cordless power tools. This innovated platform has been turning heads and causing ruckuses and, apparently, intends to change the way both professional tool users and weekend-crafters work with 20V of power. Their new compact impact driver is among the new tools released and, for a number of reasons, this driver stands out in a crowd.

    Dewalt’s DCF885C2 compact impact driver kit, as the name clearly indicates, is ultra-compact. The thing is ergonomically comfortable and fits in your hand like a natural extension of your working body. The tool is amazingly lightweight and, at only 2.8-lbs, is continuously comfortable to operate and especially so in awkward or tight-space environments. Extended applications have also been made more simple thanks to the tool’s well balance and overall ergonomic design.

    Of course, the tool is physically ideal for small spaces, but it is also equip with some intensely big power. In fact, with superior interior components, Dewalt has ensured the thing can do big damage no matter the capacity of your work space. The impact driver boasts 2,800 RPM, 3,200 IPM (impacts per minute), and 1,400-in/lbs (117-ft/lbs) of torque allowing users to glean quite a bit of bang from a surprisingly small package. NOTE: if you are a crafter that requires a little more umph or energy from you drivers, the tool is also available with a 3.0-Ah battery. This model (number DCF885L2) is slightly heavier at 3.4-lbs, but offers longer run-time and a generally stronger battery with a battery warranty. 

    For additional convenience on the job, the DCF885C2 also features three specially positioned LED lights. These LEDs are designed to provide users with optimal, shadowless visibility and they maintain brightness for 20 seconds after the trigger releases. This delay ensures you have a bright eye on your work environment even when you’re not working it. The tool also features a one-handed loading 1/4” hex chuck (which accepts 1” bit tips) and a belt hook for enhanced portability, organization, and comfort as you work and move about your workspace.

    The tool additionally includes two Dewalt 20V MAX (1.5-Ah) battery packs, a 30-minute fast charger, and a kitbox for your traveling and storage needs. Oh! and although last, it’s certainly not least, the impact driver also comes with a three year limited warranty, a 90-day money back guarantee and a 1-year free service contract. This means that the tool not only comes with a lot of Dewalt power and charm, it also comes with a warranty to back it up.
