The base mounted LED work light increases visibility in dark corners whilst the 202mm front to back length increases application versatility.

The DCF887 Brushless Impact Driver has an improved brushless motor increases the torque provided, 205Nm to be precise, suitable for a range of light to heavy applications. With an integrated three mode selector for different applications, mode one is best suited for light and small jobs, whereas mode three is more suitable for heavy impact jobs. It has a new impact mechanism for a longer drive and better speed, the specialist SBS module derives more power from the motor and the new chuck design with “drop and load” bit holder makes for fast bit changes when working. The three LED light ring lights up the working area, the overall length has been reduced to 135mm so it is also well suited for making it ideal for use in small spaces. The lightweight design reduces the amount of fatigue the user will experience after long sessions, this impact driver also includes an ergonomic cold forged impactor handle that improves overall durability. The ‘PrecisionDrive’ mode offers additional control in screwdriving applications to avoid material and fastener damage and it is compatible with all DEWALT 18v XR battery packs.

The DCH253 Brushless SDS+ Hammer Drill is powerful enough to drill holes into brick and masonry 4mm to 24mm, the rotation stop mode can be used for light chiselling in plaster and tiles for example, the impact stop mode can be used for rotary only drilling in wood and metal. It has a best in class vibration, 6.9m/s reduces user fatigue making it easier to use for longer periods without feeling like you have done a workout. The bright white LED with delay feature improves visibility in poor light conditions and the lightweight design makes it comfortable to manoeuvre into over head positions.
