DeWalt Impact Ready Accessories Specifically for Impact Drivers

DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools and accessories, is the first power tool manufacturer to introduce a new category of accessories to meet the growing demand for impact drivers. DEWALT estimates that North American sales of impact drivers have seen double digit growth, exceeding approximately $85 million in the past five years, among users who benefit from the compact size and high levels of non-reactionary torque provided by these tools. In order to accommodate the increased use of impact drivers to perform drilling and fastening applications, DEWALT introduced a new category of durable IMPACT READY™ accessories that are compatible with DEWALT impact drivers (DC827KL and DC825KA). DEWALT visited numerous jobsites to research end user needs and found that impact drivers were very popular; however there was a need for accessories that would address specific user demands:

Reduced bit breakage – users felt that existing bits were not durable enough to withstand the high levels of torque generated by impact drivers and were seeking accessories that would help to reduce the occurrence of breakage, saving money on replacement bits and improving productivity.

Improved versatility – contractors wanted to use their impact drivers to complete a wider range of drilling and fastening applications, but bits designed for durability in extremely high torque applications did not exist. Therefore, users were limited to using their impacts for a small number of drilling and fastening applications such as deck construction, hanging drywall into wood studs, and light assembly.
