DeWalt DCF826KL Review
DeWalt DCF826KL Strengths & Weaknesses:
| ||81 B||B||C||A||C||C||Price|
|Design|| ||Acceptable Design - While this drill has one or more design features that received a C rating, it can still be a good choice if that area is not critical to your particular needs.|
|Power|| ||Below Average Power - Delivers up to 1330 in-lbs of torque, about 6% less than the class average. Power can sometimes be traded for weight or cost.|
|Speed|| ||Below Average Speed - Generates up to 2400 RPM, about 6% slower than the average impact driver. The DeWalt DCF826KL ranks in the bottom 30% of its class for speed.|
|Weight||√||Light-Weight - Weighs only 3.1 lbs, about 14% lighter than the average impact driver. Ranks in the top 5% of its class for being light-weight.|
|Battery|| ||Below Average Run-Time - Battery endurance is adequate for many work applications, but is 50% less than the class average. Uses Li-ion batteries with a charge rating of 1.1 Ah.|
|Impact|| ||Below Average Impact Rate - Generates 2700 IPM of maximum impact blows, about 14% less than the average impact driver.|
|User Reviews||√||Highly Satisfied Users - Rated 4.4 of 5 stars by 5 users. Most owners are very satisfied with the performance and value of this impact driver and would recommend it to others.|
|Power Ratio||√||High Power-to-Weight - Ranks in the top 25% of its class for power-to-weight ratio, about 12% higher than average. Higher power-to-weight indicates an efficient design.|
|Gearbox||√||All-Metal Gearbox - Transmission gears spin at high RPMs and are susceptible to material break-down. An all-metal gear-box provides superior ruggedness and durability.|
|Motor Brushes||√||External Brush Access - Motor brushes burn-out periodically and being able to access them externally makes it much more convenient to replace the brushes.|
|Warranty||√||Longer Warranty - Backed by DeWalt's limited 3-year warranty. This provides extra protection against potential design defects or premature part failure.|
|Charger||√||Quick Charge - The DeWalt DCF826KL includes a battery charger that will recharge a battery in only 30 minutes. Long charge times are a common complaint with some drivers.|
|Belt Hook|| ||No Belt Hook - Does not include this convenient feature that frees-up both your hands to perform other tasks in-between driving.|

DeWalt DCF826KL Specifications & Features:
- Great product, decent price, love the light weight of the battery.
- This little gem is much smaller and lighter and has plenty of power.
- This is a handy little tool no doubt, but we did not realize that compact referred to the batteries not the tool.
- Its the first thing I grab out of my tool box and have it next to me throughout any job... In my opinion, its the best impact driver in its class...
- It's still a good tool but the old one is better.
