DeWalt DCF887N 18V XR Impact Driver Review.

Get what fits best for you and your job. With a wide selection of cordless impact drivers for action. Add brushless motors that prolong the engine life and boost the tool’s runtime. And you have impact drivers and impact wrenches that provide what you want.

The DeWALT DCF887N 18V XR Brushless Impact Driver features 3-speed settings. PrecisionDrive mode offers additional control in screwdriver applications to avoid material and fastener damage. The variable speed trigger offers additional control, making work faster, easier, and avoiding material and fastener damage. In addition to this, a specialist SBS module derives more power from the motor. 

The impact driver also includes an ergonomic cold-forged impactor handle that improves overall durability. It has a super lightweight and compact design that is very comfortable to use and fits in small spaces. 

Speed Under Load

In our speed test, the DeWalt DCF887N maintains 429 RPM under load. We expect to see a Pro-level impact driver in this class maintain a 400+ RPM. The DeWalt can hit this mark with a comfortable margin and has no trouble driving a 1/4″ screw, though it finishes.

Fastening Torque

Despite its adequate-but-forgettable performances in the speed test, the DCF887 gets its act together in the torque department. When we test for fastening torque, we expect to see these tools generating at least 1500 in-lbs of hard torque.

Nut-Busting Torque

Cranking out a respectable 3000 in-lbs of nut-busting torque, the DCF887 finishes our testing tied for 6th place with 5 other models. A quick conversion brings that 3000 in-lbs to 250 ft-lbs – the same kind of power we see in compact impact wrenches.

Three-speed settings with a precision mode

We like mechanical switches as opposed to blister buttons. They are more reliable and durable than their electric counterparts. The DCF887 has three-speed settings for customizing your speed and power. Plus, the first setting acts as a precision mode for delicate applications and finish work.

Will the DeWalt DCF887 reflect an update? If DeWalt decides to chase bigger numbers, for sure. There’s no reason to shy away from this model and we don’t see a reason to change it for anything minor unless DeWalt has a big improvement up their hands. provides the DeWalt’s Max range runs deep, and if you’re looking to move into a new cordless platform, the DCF887 is a great place to get started.
