In early October 2010 Dewalt released their new line of 12v MAX power tools. Among this release was the DCF815S2, an 1/4" impact driver with the guts and gumption to make mincemeat of its very anticipated debut and, perhaps, a mincemeat pie of the present competition.
Featuring a minor redesign that moves the tool battery directly below the handle, this 12v impact driver is now more compact and ergonomic than any of Dewalt's previous comparable releases. The slightly longer handle is slim and comfortable to grip and provides a stable base for the driver. Weighing just a meager 2.3 lbs the driver is completely compact rendering the thing perfect for use in awkward spaces and in every pesky tight spot. Being such a perfectly lightweight, the tool is also ideal for overhead and time consuming applications.
The DCF815S2 also delivers some pretty up-standing power. Producing 0-2,450 RPM, 0-3,400 IPM (impacts per minute), and an intense 950in-lbs of max torque, the tool is a power-house with the capacity to handle the toughest impact-driving applications you can throw at it. Also boasting a new 1/4" hex chuck designed to allow users to load and lock bits with one hand, the driver is unabashedly convenient and simple to operate. Three LED lights are also positioned at the front of the tool allowing the driver to provide a virtually shadowless working environment despite any combination of working conditions.
Additionally, because the tool is powered with Dewalt's lithium ion battery technology, the tool offers extended run-time with a strong, non-dwindling and fast-charging power source. Essentially, this impact driver has really got you covered; it's a comprehensive, complete power tool with all the spice to ensure your projects are completed fast and with the utmost professional performance.
