When it comes to tools that can lend a bit more efficiency and versatility to your kit, an impact driver is among the most important—up there with a cordless drill-driver. Unlike that tool though, an impact driver hits the fastener as it turns it, making it especially helpful when you’re driving screws into wood or sheet metal during jobs like building a deck or installing hinges. If you’ve been thinking of picking one up, Lowe’s is offering 37 percent off this best-selling DeWalt 20-Volt Max Brushless Impact Driver, dropping the price from $159 to $99.
The DeWalt model on sale features a brushless motor that delivers 1,700 inch-pounds of torque and 3,200 rotations per minute. The power makes DeWalt’s impact driver an excellent option for heavy-duty projects, even allowing you to drill into concrete.
The ¼-inch hex chuck can accept 1-inch bit tips and allows for quick changes, saving you time. Meanwhile, the impact driver has a variable trigger that adjusts the tool’s speed based on how far back you pull, affording you precise control. There’s also an integrated light comprised of three LEDs, improving visibility in dim workspaces. It’s the same feature Test Editor Bradley Ford loved in a different DeWalt model he evaluated for our roundup of the best impact drivers.
In addition to its ability to handle heavy-duty tasks, this DeWalt impact driver is compact—another aspect praised by Ford in the model he tested—and therefore easy to maneuver in tight spaces. This also has the benefits of making the tool easy to transport and less tiring for your hand if you have to use it for a while, since it doesn’t weigh as much as a drill-driver.
The DeWalt 20-Volt Max Brushless Impact Driver comes with a 20-volt (naturally), 2.0-amp-hour battery that’s compatible with over 300 other products in DeWalt’s lineup, including this brushless drill-driver. (A charger comes included too.) Being able to use the same battery with other tools not only boosts convenience but saves you money. Batteries can be an expensive part of building out a toolkit, so having that interoperability allows you to maximize their utility.
If you don’t have an impact driver, this deal makes now an excellent time to change that. The sale on the 20-Volt Max Brushless Impact Driver ends January 31, so jump on it and start those unfinished projects you’ve been putting off.
