This was our #1 pick for Best Impact Driver. This DeWalt impact driver is seriously powerful. This thing can drive 4-inch screws into pressure-treated wood like it’s nothing. This model really stands out from the cordless drivers we reviewed for many reasons. Good battery life and a lot of power. Went the entire day without having to charge the battery. It also impacts and removes nuts and bolts like it’s nothing.
DEWALT DCF887B 3-Speed Impact Driver
You get three LED lights with this bad boy. Compared to all of the other top-rated impact drivers in the market, this 3-speed 1/4″ impact driver is the best of the best. We love it! It comes with two 20v (18v nominal) DeWALT batteries if you get the kit, which is super useful even though the battery life is excellent, you could probably give the other battery to your friend! I’m sure they’ll love you for it.
Okay, I know what you’re saying, three LED lights?! Won’t the battery run out quickly? Nope, the batteries on this 20v impact Dewalt driver last a really long time. A single charge lasted us a full 8-hour day on the job. It’s a nice compact driver, it’s powerful, and the battery is decent. Really did not struggle to do any job with this. It comes with a pretty nifty case too! It’s a lot of fun to use.
The DeWALT brand is trusted by many. Unlike other DeWalt cordless tools, this one was made in China, so beware of that if you like to buy USA only products. Very sad, as DeWALT brands itself as USA manufacturing, but it’s still a great product. And, for peace of mind, this 20v impact brushless motor driver also comes with a standard 3-year Dewalt warranty. There is also the option to buy the 20v Max Impact Drill and Driver Combo Kit, which comes with two batteries, 20v battery charger, drill, and driver.
Overall, I’m really happy with this product. This truly is the best impact driver. If you’re going to buy one impact driver, this is the one. This really is a step up from all the other options in the market today.
