Product Description

From the Manufacturer

DEWALT is one the leading manufacturers of power tools in the world. The DC825 1/4-inch heavy-duty 18V impact driver provides a light weight, compact, and durable solution for a wide range of light-to-medium fastening applications. The DC825 offers exceptionally small size, just 5-3/4-inch front to back and with the battery (which is not included) weighs only 4.6 pounds. The DC825 has a durable high speed motor that delivers 0-2,400 RPM for increased productivity. The DC825 also has a frameless motor technology with replaceable brushes for easy serviceability, is compact in size but high with power, and allows for superior airflow which increases motor durability and extended life.

Product Description

The DEWALT DC825B 1/4-inch 18-volt cordless impact driver (bare tool) is an ideal choice for tackling a broad range of fastening applications. Its high-power frameless motor, variable-speed trigger, and ergonomic design all contribute to easy handling, while the exclusive, XRP extended run time battery system lets you work until the job at hand is complete.

Powerful, Application-Specific Performance

Offering 1,330 inch-pounds of torque, the DC825B impact driver delivers the performance you need to complete a wide range of fastening applications quickly and accurately -- from driving and removing fasteners in metal or concrete to drilling in wood and metal. It features variable-speed control from 0 to 2,400 rpm and 0 to 2,700 ipm for faster results and application-specific driving.

This impact driver is easy to control -- even at the end of a long workday -- with its comfortable, anti-slip grip and a body that is durable, lightweight, and well balanced. And its body is compact to fit easily in tight places.

Convenient, replaceable brushes allow for extended tool life, and a heavy-duty impact mechanism directs up to 1,330 inch-pounds of torque to the fastener without causing kickback--protecting you, the tool, and your work piece. A durable magnesium gear case and all-metal transmission also contribute to the DC825B's durability.

Bare Tool

This DEWALT cordless tool does not come with a battery or charger. It's compatible with DEWALT's 18-volt XRP battery system, which provides up to 40 percent more run time than standard Ni-Cad batteries and can be used with any 18-volt DEWALT tool.

The tool is compact, light weight and very well balanced to use.
Effortlessly drives wood screws without stripping the screw heads like a drill will do.
Dale T. Brose
With this impact driver the job is fast and much easier than with the drill driver.

I actually got this tool when I bought the 6-tool set that comes in a contractor bag. I really bought the set for the reciprocating saw, the circular saw, the grinder, and the "normal" drill. My attitude toward the impact driver was more or less, "eh, that thing looks pretty wimpy". Well, that was two months ago, before I completely re-framed half of a house. This is now the most used tool I own. I can drive 3 1/2" screws into studs and headers all day long, one handed. As long as I'm driving straight, I will never strip out screw heads with it. In fact, the worst problem I have is breaking bits. The DeWalt "Impact Ready" bits are the worst. I will sometimes break a bit after only one screw. That should give you an idea of the torque and power this thing generates! The good news is that I did find that, surprisingly, Kobalt bits seem to hold up very well for some reason. I can sometimes get 50 screws driven with one Kobalt bit! I'm talking 3 1/2" screws into yellow pine, by the way. If you're driving 2" screws you'll go all day with one bit. Get the Kobalts, though - they're $13 for a box of 50 at Lowe's. The DeWalts are something like $7 for 5 bits - which are good for about 10 screws total before they all break.

It may seem intimidating that it breaks bits, but don't worry, my 97 pound girlfriend has no trouble at all using this thing. Really it's unbelievable. There is simply no way to put into words how well and easily this thing drives screws. It seems impossible. The days of leaning into the back of a regular drill with all my weight, just to have the screw head strip out millimeters from being set are over!

I own 9 impact drivers from 3 different manufacturers and my old Dewalt (ni-cad style) was my least favorite of the group but this new one (which is made for the new 18v Lithium-Ion type batteries but works with all my old 18v ni-cads) is top notch. Dewalt has apparently fixed most of the problems found in the old ni-cad style impact guns (like excessive bit wobble) and added a light like the Makitas and Ryobis have. Now more compact and more powerful than the competition. A definite winner.

I use this tool to drive drywall and lag screws. I have not had any problems. The redesigned tool is smaller than the older one and the led light has made this tool even better.

I have long been a loyal DeWalt costumer, especially when in comes to cordless tools like the 18v drill I purchased 6 years ago. That drill quickly became my favorite tool and has seen constant use since. In fact I was so happy with the drill that I did not see any reason to buy an impact driver, until a couple of projects I was working on required me to drive a large number of constuction screws and lag bolts. My drill was able to drive them but not as easily or quickly as I would have liked, so I decided it was time to give the impact driver a try and my only regret it that I did not buy one sooner. This driver is by far the best power tool I have ever owned. It is absolutely necessary for driving lag screws or anything comparable but also preforms so much better in less demanding tasks like running deck screws. I have discovered that it is also quite handy for boring large holes even though that is not the intent behind the tool. If you put an Irwin Speedbore bit in this thing it will chew through 4 by lumber in no time. Using the driver for boring has saved my wrist on a number of occasions as those Speedbore bits require quite abit of torque to run and if the bit binds up while using a regular drill all that torque gets transferred to your wrist. Now that I have a set of Irwin Speedbore and Spade bits plus a decent hex drill bit set my drill is relegated to drilling metal and the occasional pilot hole.
This driver is also much better at removing rusty and stripped screws than my drill, just another unexpected bonus.
Without exception this is the one tool that goes with me to every job.

Not long ago a friend gave me an extra DeWalt 18 volt drill he'd come into. I'd been using a 12 volt Makita for over a decade, and I was impressed with how much more torque and battery life the DeWalt had. The same friend also had a DeWalt impact driver from the same series, and again, I was impressed how well this handled mechanical tasks usually relegated to a pneumatic impact driver. But even more impressive was how well the DeWalt worked for driving screws.

A few years ago, the major cordless tool makers started to come out with impact drivers which they marketed not to mechanics, but to carpenters. While today's 18volt cordless drills do a pretty good job of driving screws, they still start to bog down when driving really long screws into hard or resinous wood. The slow, stall, and eventually overheat. But impact drivers don't do this. They work on a different principle, using a motor-driven hammer to repeatedly strike an anvil that drives the output shaft. As the load increases, they switch from spinning to a rapid-fire staccato impact mode, in which every impact turns the screw a bit farther, while the motor continues to spin and bring in cooling air.

I was very pleased to discover that Amazon had a DeWalt impact driver available in a batteryless and caseless package (for those of us who already have a charger and several batteries) for about $125. I purchased mine for a mix of yard projects- this is a great tool for driving the big screws used to tie landscape timbers together- home projects, and motorcycle/scooter maintenance. And amazingly, it's even lighter and more compact than the DEWALT DC759KA Heavy-Duty 18-Volt Ni-Cad 1/2-Inch Cordless Drill/Driver Kit. I'm giving away my Makita 12v drill/driver to a nephew who likes tools and gadgets, and switching 100% to the DeWalt system.
