DeWalt debuts Tool Connect impact wrench

Publish date:

DeWalt adds to its growing line of 20-volt Max tools with the XR 1/2" mid-range impact wrench, model DCF896, featuring the company’s Tool Connect user control app.

“Within the Tool Connect app, the new Precision Tap control feature is designed to make tapping threads fast and easy. By adjusting the settings within the Tool Connect app, the wrench can automatically alternate between forward and reverse. This keeps rotations consistent and eliminates the need to manually change the tool’s direction and constantly release and re-engage the trigger,” the company said in a statement.

“Other features of the Tool Connect app include its 10-speed presets available in forward and reverse, which can be selected to account for different fastener sizes and types. Users can also pre-determine their LED brightness and delay.”

The tool measures 6.95” in length and weighs 3.48 lbs., according to DeWalt. It also features a brushless motor, variable speed trigger, belt clip, and LED work light.

The bare tool sells for $239. As a kit with two 5.0Ah batteries, it sells for $439.
