DeWALT DCF880 18V – 1/2″ Impact Wrench Review

A couple of weeks ago i had a box waiting for me when I got home from work. I’m not sure there’s anything better than new tools at your doorstep.

I was really keen to see how well the 18V XR DCF880 performed. If it could take off my ute’s wheel nuts, then I couldn’t ask for anything more. Well, it does. It’s unbelievable that such a small tool (its the same size as the impact drivers) can pack such a good punch. I like it so much that I’ve sold my Bosch high torque wrench, I’ll just never need more power than this.

If you’re more sensible than us, you might not need this AND an impact wrench. If you’re mainly driving screws, get the impact driver plus a socket adapter. If you’re working with nuts and bolts more often, get a 1/4” hex adapter for the wrench.

We love this little tool, and the fantastic LED lights will just be so handy under the bonnet.
