Atomic Compact Series 20V Max by Dewalt

Atomic Compact Series of Impact Drivers by DewaltDewalt adds to the growing Atomic Compact Series 20V Max portfolio with a new 20V Max 1/4″ 3-Speed Impact Driver (DCF850), 20V Max 1/2″ Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil (DCF921), 20V Max 1/2″ Impact Wrench with Detent Pin Anvil (DCF922), and 20V Max 3/8″ Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil (DCF923). Each tool boasts a short length and minimal weight for tight-space applications and user comfort.

At only 3.97-In. in length, the 20V Max 1/4-In. 3-Speed Impact Driver (DCF850) is 29 percent shorter. With a brushless motor that delivers 30 percent more max torque at 1825 in-lbs., as well as 3250 RPM (no-load), the impact driver powers through heavy applications like larger fasteners and spade bits while providing access to tighter spaces like cabinetry and framing. Three LED lights provide optimum illumination, while 3-Speed setting and a variable speed trigger allow for precision and control.

More benefits of the Atomic Compact Series

Each of the new 20V Max Impact Wrenches delivers up to 300 ft-lbs. of max tightening torque. They also deliver up to 450 ft-lbs. of max breakaway torque. This is all done at an astonishing weight of just 2.5 lbs. (tool only) each. At less than 5-In in length, the DCF921 brushless impact wrench is 28 percent more compact for comfort and improved access when working in tight spaces. Glass filled nylon housings help resist the effects of harsh automotive chemicals and solvents making it ideal for use in a variety of construction and automotive applications including grooved couplings, pipe flanges, concrete anchors, brake repair, engine bay work, suspension repair and more.

Precision Wrench Control provides added control when used in forward/reverse and TimberScrew Mode for performance in wood fastening applications. The DCF921 and DCF923 each feature a hog ring anvil for easy socket changes. However, the DCF922 has a detent pin anvil for users who require additional socket retention. Users can also select LED brightness with the 3 mode select button.

The new Dewalt Atomic Compact Series 20V Max Impact Driver and Impact Wrenches will be available this fall where Dewalt products are sold. See below for additional information on SKUs and MSRPs. For more information on Dewalt products, visit
