This impact wrench can be used to open even the most stubborn nuts that resist opening due to rusting or other reasons.
As mentioned earlier, if you’re the type of person that loves to do hands on work, then you’re in for a treat. Basically this socket wrench delivers very high torque and requires practically no effort from the user, other than holding it correctly in place.
The DEWALT DCF880L2 is meant for a ½ inch drive that operates through the power available from a 20V battery. This gives the tool a lot of flexibility as it can be taken to places that are far away from electrical outlets, like driveways, gate locations and other places such as boat docks; where it needs to be used. A great advantage of the DEWALT DCF880L2 is that it is very compact, with its less than 6 inch front to back dimensions. This allows the wrench to be used in tight situations. This ability to reach difficult areas is further helped by the LED lights that can provide visibility for the operator.
The grip on this tool also is textured and easy to hold. The textured surface on the grip ensures that the wrench will not slip easily, while it is used. Its weight of 3.4 pounds is one that is easily maneuvered and hefted even in awkward positions.
The DEWALT DCF880L2 works by using a motor to spin the hammer tool inside it. The hammer stores the energy that is then transferred to the tool or anvil which rotates the nut or other fixture to be removed. This transfer of power is intermittent, and the high torque of 150 ft-lbs is never transferred to the operator of the tool. The pistol type design of this wrench is very operator friendly. The tool comes along with a charger that allows the lithium ion batteries to be charged quickly. There is an indicator with three LED lights that allow the user to gauge the run time available in the pack, so that it can be charged. One great advantage with the DEWALT DCF880L2 is that because it is cordless, there is no fear of dangling cables. This does allow the tool to be used safely in domestic situations, especially where there are children and pets around. It is of great help when you have to work at places that are not near to any power source. It is also necessary to know how to make the correct use of the DEWALT DCF880L2, so that problems are avoided.
A common mistake made by new users is to use the tool to thread a nut on to a bolt from the start. Since this tool has a high torque, this can quite often lead to cross threading that can destroy the threads and make it difficult to use further. Nuts must be hand tightened before the DEWALT DCF880L2 is used. And since the DEWALT DCF880L2 is cordless, it does not give as much power as the impact wrenches that work directly through an electrical outlet. Therefore this can sometimes be a disadvantage. All in all, this impact wrench is a must need for home owners, or individuals that are in the construction field. DEWALT has always been a credible company when it comes to their tools.
