DeWALT DCF886 Brushless Impact Driver - 5 Things You Need to Know

Sometimes small is better.

Impact drivers often need to be used in tight, compact spaces. If that's the case for us, we need to have in our kit a power tool that'll be free from cords and small enough to work where we need it to, but packing the sort of power that'll both surprise and amaze us.

That's where DeWALT's DCF886 comes in, and we'll show you why it's worthy of space in your tool bag.

#1 - Brushless Motor

Brushless motors mean that DeWALT is able to engineer an impact driver that has a head length of only 140mm, making it compact enough to work in even the tightest of spaces. Plus you'll have a tool in your hand that weighs a mere 1.4kg.

In addition, brushless means virtually no servicing and loads more run-time from your XR lithium-ion battery pack.

#2 - 2Ah or Body-only

Already packing DeWALT batteries? Then go for the naked (body-only) version (see it here). Or snap up the tidy little upgraded version which comes with 2Ah batteries. These new batteries weigh the same as the older 1.5Ah packs, but obviously are going to give you that wee bit extra run-time per charge. See this version here.



#3 - Loads of Speed, Loads of Impact

Despite its ultra-compact footprint, the DCF886 manages to push out plenty of power from the brushless motor, all controlled at your fingertips via the variable speed trigger, thanks to DeWALT's excellent XR Switch.

So you'll be getting 2,800rpm to drive screws and up to 3,200 impacts per minute for tougher applications.

#4 - LED Halo Ring

Working in confined spaces usually means you're in the dark. But thanks to the bright LED halo ring round the 1/4" hex drive, you'll have plenty of light to see exactly what you're doing.

#5 - Aluminium Front Housing

Obviously if you're pushing a massive screw into a piece of tough timber, you're going to be generating loads of heat at the drive end of the tool. And heat can be harmful to your power tools. So DeWALT has engineered the front housing of the DCF886 out of aluminium for improved heat dispersion. And this helps prolong the motor life, even when you're performing heavy duty applications.
