Tool Review: DeWalt 1/4″ XR impact driver

This thing kicks ass and lasts a long time. I’ve exposed it to rain, dirt, and 1″ nylock nuts.

It’s probably my most used tool, and has done almost any job I’ve thrown at it. The socket adapter in the picture above is testament to its strength and durability. I was putting on a nylock nut on to a 1-in bolt, and the adapter twisted like a piece of junk chineseum but not any kind of sign of failure or wear or anything from the DeWalt.

10 out of 10, would buy again. Maybe next time I’ll get the 1/2-in anvil impact driver, but that’s another 300 bucks I don’t want to spend.
