About DeWalt

Compact yet powerful, this DeWalt XR impact driver is the tool for the job whenever you need to work in small, cramped spaces. Equipped with a parabolic switch profile, you are also allowed a certain degree of freedom to select among several speed options.

Compared with other bulkier and heavier models, the ergonomic design of the DeWalt DCF815 aims to reduce fatigue when you need to work for long periods of time. The handle’s rubber over-mold efficiently absorbs surface vibrations during operation.
