If you’re building decks or hanging drywall, this driver makes the job a whole lot easier. A no-load speed of 0 to 900 rpm and 0 to 2,900 rpm couples with a maximum torque of 180 inch-pounds for serious fastener driving. All of DeWalt’s screwdrivers—this one included—have a dead front spindle. The clutches are held apart by light spring pressure so the drilling clutch can rotate without involving the driven clutch and accessory. Just apply pressure to engage the clutch and you’re driving. We really like the depth setter on this driver; you just turn the collar and precise adjustments are made. Each ""click"" of the collar is a change of .007 inch, and a full revolution changes your depth setting .083 inch. Changing the bit holder is just a little sticky, but if you grasp the bit holder with pliers, it’s quick and easy. There’s a neat groove designed into the body of the tool, and we followed DeWalt’s advice for applying a little more pressure to a driving job. Instead of holding it like a regular drill, slide your thumb and index finger along the side of the tool near the top and squeeze the trigger with your middle and ring fingers.
