10x Speed and 2x Torque
The Black & Decker BDCS80I 8-volt Max impact screwdriver features 10x speed and 2x torque for increased range of tasks versus other screwdrivers. This unit allows variable speed for increased control, all contained in a compact size for comfortable usage and easy storage. Also, this unit has a LED light for better visibility when completing tasks. This 8-volt lithium ion battery can hold a charge for up to 18 months, so it’s ready when you are. Great for use on furniture assembly, installation (cabinets, drawers, curtains, blinds, etc), woodworking projects, hanging pictures/decorative items, and installing shelves.
The top two complaints involving screwdrivers are speed and power. Black & Decker is bringing true power and innovation to the screwdriving category with the 8-volt Max impact screwdriver, a unique tool that provides superior speed and torque for improved performance during screwdriving and fastening applications. Most traditional pistol grip 4-volt cordless screwdrivers on the market provide 200 RPM (revolutions per minute). With a speed of 2,200 RPM, the 8-volt Max impact screwdriver drives select screws with up to 10x more speed. With its high speeds, the impact screwdriver is particularly handy when tackling big jobs with lots of screwdriving such as removing and replacing kitchen cabinet hardware or assembling furniture.
Most cordless screwdriver speeds are very slow, with an average speed of 200 RPM. The impact screwdriver speed can be almost 10x faster. When driving a light-duty fastener, the Black & Decker impact screwdriver will operate like a traditional cordless screwdriver; however, when the Impact Screwdriver encounters higher opposing torque, such as when driving a larger or longer fastener, an impact mechanism is activated and the tool applies a rapid series of rotary impulses (beats per minute). The quick impacts of the mechanism deliver more torque to help drive the fastener faster.
Another advantage is that the Impact Screwdriver is non-reactionary. When encountering resistive torque other screwdrivers stall and twist in your hands. The Black & Decker Impact Screwdriver will not. Also, you do not need to apply much force to keep the bit engaged with the fastener head. The Impact Screwdriver’s compact, lightweight design makes it easy to drive and remove screws in hard-to-reach areas.
The motor and transmission generate 125 inch-pounds of max torque, while the variable speed trigger delivers 0-2,200 rotations-per-minute (RPM) delivering improved performance during large and small fastening applications. The variable speeds let you make quick adjustments in screwdriving speed to optimize power for the most common DIY screwdriving tasks, and LED light illuminates dark work areas. An impact mechanism helps prevent stripped screws while the variable speed provides increased control when starting bits. Impact Screwdriver includes a 1/4-inch hex chuck for secure bit retention.
