Drive large and difficult fasteners using these battery-powered cordless impact drivers. These tools combine the rotational force of a driver with impact force along the axis of the bit to produce higher torque than conventional drivers. For best results, impact drivers should be used with impact drive bits, which are made from softer material than standard drive bits in order to better absorb high impact and torque. Cordless tools are generally more compact than corded tools, making them well suited for working in tight spaces. They don't have cords to tangle or trip over and don't require access to an AC power source to operate. Cordless tools can often share batteries with tools of the same brand and voltage. Battery chemistry, capacity (amp hours), and recharge time impact the run time and down time for the tool.
Compact and lightweight, these general purpose impact drivers have batteries rated below 18V. These tools are powerful enough for most intermittent light to medium duty tasks.
12V — Max Series
12V — M12 Series
With batteries that are rated at 18V and higher, heavy duty cordless impact drivers provide more power than tools with lower-voltage batteries for frequent, continuous use and demanding applications such as removing stuck or rusted fasteners. These tools are typically heavier and less compact than tools with lower-voltage batteries.
20V — Max Series
18V — M18 Series
18V — LXT Series
These high-performance cordless impact drivers have brushless motors. Tools with brushless motors are typically smaller and lighter than comparable tools with a standard motor, which helps reduce fatigue when using the tool for long periods of time. Brushless motors do not lose energy through friction and heat, making them more efficient and durable than standard motors. These professional-grade tools are suitable for frequent, heavy use in construction, assembly, and manufacturing operations.
18V — LXT Series
Right-Angle for Confined Spaces
Right-angle impact drivers have a chuck that is oriented 90° to the tool body, providing a slim profile for working in areas with low clearance.
