DeWALT Introduces Heavy-duty Cordless Impact Drivers and Wrenches with More Power in a Small PackageDurable, Frameless Motor Helps Professional Contractors Complete a Wide Range of Fastening Applications

    July 2007 - DeWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, introduced its new line of heavy-duty impact drivers and wrenches, providing users with a smaller, lighter, more powerful tool to meet the jobsite needs of professional contractors. The line of impact drivers and wrenches includes 18V (DC825KA/DC820KA), 14.4V (DC835KA/DC830KA), 12V (DC845KA/DC840KA, DC841), and 9.6V (DC855KA). The impact drivers and wrenches are ideal for steel framers, commercial electricians, cabinet installers, deck builders, HVAC and wet and dry mechanical contractors who need a compact tool for self-drilling metal screws, setting wood and lag screws, spade bit drilling (up to 1"), and a wide range of nut/bolt combinations.

    Durable, Frameless Motor Helps Professional Contractors Complete a Wide Range of Fastening Applications

    The impact drivers and wrenches are equipped with a high-speed DeWALT-designed frameless motor with replaceable brushes, providing users with high performance, durability and serviceability. The frameless motor design benefits from increased airflow and provides more power, enabling users to complete a wide range of fastening applications. Additionally, DeWALT reduced the overall length and footprint of each model, creating a compact, lightweight tool that allows users to access tighter areas and easily complete overhead applications.

    DeWALT built the new impact tools with an improved variable speed reversing switch, providing users with more control for both setting and removing fasteners. A textured anti-slip comfort grip handle design delivers increased comfort for extended use. The bright LED work light offers additional visibility in dark, confined spaces. Additionally, for increased user flexibility and productivity, DeWALT designed the impact drivers and wrenches with an OEM accessory recess that provides compatibility with many popular after-market components.

    The 18V models are powered by the DeWALT 18V cordless system, which provides users with superior cycle life and runtime. The entire DeWALT 18V system is designed for maximum durability and versatility, allowing users to operate 38 tools off of one battery platform.
