SKIL 20V Brushless Impact Driver Features

At the heart of this heavy hitter is the Brushless motor and the 20-volt lithium battery. Listed at 1800 in-lbs (150 ft-lbs) of torque, we tested the SKIL 20V brushless impact driver breaking free nuts that were torqued to 250ft-lbs. The 20-volt battery also includes a USB port for charging any of your phones or smart devices. You get three power modes: High, Low, and Control Mode. Control Modes starts slow, then when it senses that a fastener is started, it kicks into High speed. We like using the variable speed trigger to feather the RPMs and power where we want it.
