Cheapest for a Dewalt Brushless impact driver (18v)
Get it if you do not want 3-gear like 887

DeWalt DCF787N 18v XR Brushless Impact Driver Body OnlyThe DCF787 XR Brushless Impact Driver is the budget version of the DCF887.

Cracking price
Never understood the point of an impact driver until I owned one. Thinking everything I needed doing could be done with a drill. How wrong I was. Impact driver if my favourite power tool out of everything, and this is a fantastic price for a brushless model

I have one and have used it about twice. I keep seeing people rave about it, but don't get it. Maybe I haven't found the right job yet. What do you use it for?

Most people won't need one, but when you want to build something, like a shed or more, then it becomes very useful. A low end trade combi drill has about 60Nm torque. So with thicker deeper screws you will need to drill a pilot hole

You should consider selling yours, before its replaced by newer versions and they normally go for good price on ebay
Not bad but note this doesn't have the 3 speed settings that the 887n has.
For £20 more you’re better off with the 887. Amazing bit of kit - this is the budget entry level model

According to these youtube.com/wat…70s

The 787 is a better driver, slightly less power but much more reliable. I have the 787 and realistically a DIYer won't notice any difference in the torque.

Also to say it's the budget entry level model is a bit unfair, it's the second down in the range. The entry level models have much less torque and they're brushed.

Not just that but very little torque is driven into your arms so it's much easier to driver screws one hand. MUCH less chance of rounding off screws and bits due to the hundreds of small impacts vs torque pushing you out of the screw.

Yeah you’re right it’s not “entry level”, more entry into brushless , sorry
I've got the 887 and it's invaluable. I'm in the process of building a shed/mancave and have already used around a couple of thousand screws. The driver makes it so easy. An ordinary electric screwdriver wouldn't cope and a drill driver would be very tiring... heavier, much more torquey. The 887 was my favourite tool until I treated myself to one of Dewalt's 18v multi-tools, which is just amazing (get one of those too... you know you want to).
Note that there’s no battery included

Screwing lots of screws in a day, or big screws.

I agree. It's about £18 more at the moment.

Power tool mate is usually the cheapest but poor customer service . Product and price makes up for it .
Powertoolworld usually around the same price with a bit better tried and tested service. Usually you don’t need to use it so you’re alright
