Drills and Impact Drivers

DeWalt announces a new 20V MAX XR® Drill (DCD791) & Impact Driver (DCF887) with on average 30% faster application speeds, more powerful DeWalt-built brushless motors and better ergonomics than previous DeWalt models. Featuring a dust- and moisture-resistant coated and sealed switch, the new 20V MAX XR® Drill & Impact Driver are ideal for heavy-duty use on job sites where durability takes priority. [The 20V MAX has a maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) of 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.]


The 20V MAX XR® 1/2" Compact Drill/Driver with an all-metal ratcheting chuck is shorter, lighter, and more powerful at a 27% power improvement versus the previous model. The DCD791 is 6.9" in length, weighs 3.4 lbs with a 2.0Ah 20V MAX XR® battery, and delivers 460 UWO (Unit Watts Out) of power. The 20V MAX XR® 1/2" Compact Drill/Driver achieves 0–550 RPM in first gear and 0–2,000 RPM in second. With 3 LED light settings, the drill offers low, medium and spotlight modes at 60 lumens—a full 20X brighter than the previous model. The spotlight mode conveniently brightens dark workspaces and has a 20 minute delay feature that alerts the user 2 minutes before the light shuts off.


The 20V MAX XR® Brushless 1/4" 3-Speed Impact Driver (DCF887) with its easy-grip drop and load chuck is also smaller at 5.3” in length and provides 17% more torque compared to its predecessor. At 2.9 lbs with a 2.0Ah 20V MAX XR® battery, the DCF887 has 3 speeds: The DCF887 has max speed of 3,250 RPM and 1,825 in/lbs of max torque in Speed 3, 2,800 RPM and 1,500 in/lbs of torque in Speed 2, and 1,000 RPM and 240 in/lbs of torque in Speed 1. The impact driver also features PrecisionDrive™ technology, which allows the Impact Driver to stall for 1 second before impacting. This protects the fastener and material surface and provides the user with maximum control during applications that require a high level of craftsmanship.


The DCD791, DCD796 and DCF887 come standard with a 3 year limited warranty, 90 day money back guarantee, and 1 year free service contract.
