“Not every job requires 1550 in. lbs. of torque, so having three torque options gives the user the ability to match the right amount of force with the application,” said Jeanne White, Rockwell’s Senior Product Manager.

The new Rockwell® 20V MaxLithium Brushless 3-speed Impact Driver features an impressive power range up to 1550 in. lbs. of torque to tackle the most demanding jobs indoors and out. The brushless power tool is backed by Rockwell’s new 20 year warranty, plus Free Replacement Batteries For 20 Years, once the tool is registered.

Rockwell’s 20V brushless motors feature 10 times the motor life and 25 percent more power than comparable, conventional brushed motors. Highly magnetic rare earth metals increase power output. Plus, battery run time is increased by up to 50 percent per charge versus standard brushed motors. Brushless motors have computer-controlled power distribution, which improves motor efficiency and durability by reducing heat, friction, noise and wear.

“Not every job requires 1550 in. lbs. of torque, so having three torque options gives the user the ability to match the right amount of force with the application,” said Jeanne White, Rockwell’s Senior Product Manager. “The new 20 year warranty on our brushless power tools sets Rockwell apart from all major power tool brands.”

Impact drivers have a ¼ in. chuck and only accept hex shanked bits, which grip evenly on all six sides to eliminate slippage. Impact drivers complement drill-drivers by driving a variety of screws with rotational force (impacts) to sink screws and minimize stripped screw heads.

Rockwell’s 20V brushless 3-speed impact driver is a serious deck building and assembly tool. It’s designed to drive screws hard and fast in the densest materials. It’s especially useful in repetitive work environments, and since the tool’s concussions are channeled to the screw, there’s no residual effect to the user’s wrist or forearm. Its compact size and stubby headstock afford easy access into limited clearance areas.

Rockwell’s 20V MaxLithium Brushless 3-speed Impact Driver has three speed/torque options at the push of a button. Press the button to match torque and application. Each torque level has a digital indicator with level one at 530 in./lbs. of torque. This setting is ideal for driving smaller screws. Press level two, and torque increases to 930 in. lbs. for medium jobs. At level three, maximum torque reaches1550 in. lbs., enabling the driver to sink 3 to 3.5 in. lag screws in hardwoods in no time at all. At 3.2 lbs. (with battery), the tool has an excellent power-to-weight ratio.

The impact driver has overmold on the back of the handle for a steady grip. The tool also is equipped with a belt clip that safely secures the tool to the user’s belt when not in use.

The tool’s LED worklight doubles as low-battery-charge indicator when blinking. The LED light continues to stay on for a short period after the trigger is released. A digital power gauge on the back of the battery pack monitors the battery’s charge level.

The 3-speed brushless impact driver has a ¼ in. chuck and accepts ¼ in. hex-shanked bits. The driver has speed ranges of 0-1300, 0-2100 and 0-2900 no-load rpm and 0-1600, 0-2900 and 0-3200 impacts-per-minute (ipm).

The 20V brushless impact driver includes two, 2.0 Ah MaxLithium batteries, a one-hour charger, belt clip and soft bag for storage.
