What experts liked
Has an anti slip technology to enhance safety
- Best of Machinery
While the speed is still variable depending on how hard you squeeze the trigger, you can lower the high end, which comes in handy.
- Digital Trends
Dewalt has packed this tool with increased options and features, including a new 3 speed adjustable power setting that will help for those situations when finesse is needed more than power.
- Impact Drivers Specialist
Powered by a 20-volt MAX XR battery, the unit boasts an extended runtime and power capacity.
- Sympathink
This impact driver is packed with exceptional raw power that allows users to drive in screws through hard materials or concrete easily
- Tool Guy Reviews
Super fast charging so you’ll never be hanging around.
- Power Drill Guru
What experts didn't like
No batteries included
- Best of Machinery
The only real downside here is price, in terms of the drill itself and the bits you need to buy, but the upside outweighs the upcharge.
- Digital Trends
We think the tool would be much improved by having a 2nd setting that falls more in the middle of the two extremes.
- Impact Drivers Specialist
It is priced relatively higher than most models in its category
- Tool Guy Reviews
3 speeds will cover pretty much everything you require from the drill, however some of the other drills reviewed here have the benefit of being variable.
- Power Drill Guru
