The DCF845’s ergonomic shape curves well to your hand, and the rubber overgrip covers a large surface area, great for gripping power and shock absorption. The forward-leaning handle angle is also reasonably aggressive, providing extended driving reach.

Otherwise, the DCF845 includes a standard belt hook but no bit holder or magnetic fastener plate. Several Ryobi impact drivers have a bit holder and magnetic fastener plate onboard without buying a third-party add-on.

Weight

Ryobi PBLID02 On Scale

Bare weight (lbs): 2.32
Weight w/ 2Ah battery (lbs): 3.28
Weight w/ 2.5Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 4Ah battery (lbs): 3.96
Weight w/ 5Ah battery (lbs): Not tested

The PBLID02 is a heavy impact driver, so it’s not ideal for long driving sessions where arm fatigue sets in.

The working weight can differ significantly depending on the battery run in your setup, which is why we tested the weight in different configurations. To keep it lightweight, we recommend combining the PBLID02 with Ryobi’s 18V One+ 2Ah battery for a good balance of performance and weight.

If weight is less of a concern, pair the PBLID02 with Ryobi’s 18V One+ 4Ah battery for a longer run time and improved driving performance.The Makita 18V LXT XDT13Z or Makita 18V LXT XDT14Z are solid alternatives that are comparably-priced impact drivers and far lighter.

Weight w/ 2.5Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 4Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 5Ah battery (lbs): 3.43

The DCF845 isn’t lightweight in its heavy-duty driving class, instead, middle of the pack. The Makita 18V LXT XDT19Z sheds some weight and is a better option if you covet a light, equally powerful setup.

The working weight can differ significantly depending on the battery run in your setup. To keep it as lightweight as possible, We recommend combining the DCF845 with Dewalt’s new 20V Powerstack 1.7Ah battery, which weighs less, has a smaller footprint, and performs better than Dewalt’s 20V Max 2Ah battery, which is a solid alternative for a svelte setup.

If weight is less of a concern, pair the DCF845 with Dewalt’s 20V Max XR 5Ah battery for a longer run time and improved driving performance. Moreover, this setup is one of the lightest 5Ah kits we’ve come across.

Most Ryobi impact drivers have a bulky footprint, and that’s no different with the PBLID02. Notably, the base is more prominent than many similarly-priced impact drivers.

Context is important when discussing the length. The collet-to-back length isn’t as oversized as many Ryobi models that are incredibly large, though it’s not as compact as impact drivers from other brands.

So, the PBLID02 better reaches into tight spaces than other Ryobi models but doesn’t match the clearances possible looking to other brands, as demonstrated in our interior clearance tests below.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 4,000.0

One standout feature of the PBLID02 is that it includes a brushless motor. Brushless motors are more efficient and durable and provide better battery run time than brushed motors.

The brushless motor and the high 4000.0 impacts per minute partly explain why the PBLID02 shined in our driving speed tests.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 4,200.0

As should be expected at this price point, the DCF845 includes a brushless motor, which improves longevity, battery efficiency, and driving performance compared to a brushed motor. This motor choice explains some of the impressive battery run time and driving speed performance.

The high advertised 4200.0 impacts per minute also explain the capable driving performance.

Drive modes

Drive modes: 4
Drive mode 1:  High speed 
Drive mode 2:  Medium speed 
Drive mode 3:  Low speed 
Drive mode 4:  Assist 
Variable speed trigger: Yes

There are four drive modes on the PBLID02, significantly improving its driving versatility. Drive mode 1 offers the highest torque and RPM output and is ideal for rapidly driving lag bolts, decking screws, and other big fasteners.

Drive mode 2 still offers solid driving performance but is better suited to driving shorter screws into dimensional lumber and soft materials such as MDF. We could recess screws in all material densities in drive mode 2, though not at a consistent depth.

Drive mode 3 most accurately recesses screws and is the best setting if demanding a consistently perfect recess. For light and medium-duty jobs, we found a sweet spot of using drive mode 3 or 2 to drive screws quickly, then switching over to drive mode 3 for a consistent recess.

The PBLID02 also includes an assist mode, though we didn’t find it any better than the other drive modes in the forward setting. However, the assist mode is helpful in the reverse setting to bust loose stubborn screws and nuts. When holding the trigger, the collet starts and stops several times and then ramps up the RPM. This assist setting nicely helped to avoid stripping screw heads.

There are no other specialty drive modes that high-end impact drivers include, such as self-tapping, wood, and bolt-loosening drive modes. Several Milwaukee impact drivers have self-tapping options, and some Makita impact drivers include specialty wood and bolt-loosening modes.

Drive modes

Dewalt DCF845 Drive Modes

Drive modes: 3
Drive mode 1:  High speed 
Drive mode 2:  Medium speed 
Drive mode 3:  Low speed/tightening 
Drive mode 4:  N/A 
Variable speed trigger: Yes

The DCF845 includes the essential drive modes that most users need. There’s a high and low speed impacting mode and a precision driving mode.

The precision mode works well for light-duty tasks, such as general woodworking or driving soft screws in a pinch when your cordless drill is out of reach. But we found ourselves using drive mode 2 more frequently when precision was paramount, such as accurately recessing screws into MDF and drywall studs. The increased driving power is more versatile than what’s offered with the precision drive mode while retaining most of the same accuracy.

Users desiring best-in-class driving versatility should look to a Makita impact driver. The Makita 18V LXT XDT19Z and Makita 40V XGT GDT01Z include similar drive modes as the DCF845 but layer in additional assist modes, including self-tapping and bolt-specific settings.

Driving speed

GRK total driving time forward (sec.): 14.7
GRK average driving time forward (sec.): 2.9
GRK total driving time reverse (sec.): 11.0
GRK average driving time reverse (sec.): 2.2

While it doesn’t have the highest torque or RPMs, the PBLID02 performed well in our driving speed tests, finishing near the top of the pack driving GRK RSS screws. The PBLID02 similarly shines at driving decking screws and shorter common screw sizes used in DIY projects and medium-duty tasks around the home.

Driving speed

GRK total driving time forward (sec.): 12.8
GRK average driving time forward (sec.): 2.6

The DCF845 yielded some of the fastest results in our GRK driving speed tests. Dewalt designed the DCF845 with the right balance of features for excellent driving performance without the downsides, such as short battery life, that plague some high-end impact drivers.

The DCF845 is equally capable of driving more than just long GRK screws. We tested driving lag bolts, structural screws, drywall screws, and other standard sizes and lengths. This impact driver handled all with ease for nearly unmatched driving versatility.

The PBLID02 is moderately powerful, as our torque tests demonstrated. In practice, we didn’t encounter a driving task the PBLID02 couldn’t complete, including driving long and big lag bolts into treated lumber. This impact driver doesn’t offer high RPMs, leaving its torque output to do most of the heavy lifting in demanding tasks.

Several closely-priced alternatives offer higher torque output, including the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20, Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF887, and Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF845.

While the DCF845 sped through heavy-duty driving jobs in our tests, the torque output doesn’t explain most of the driving performance. The DCF845 is moderately powerful compared to impact drivers in the Dewalt lineup and outside of it. It is sufficiently powerful to handle demanding tasks, but the Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF887 has a far higher torque output for models in the Dewalt ecosystem.

Battery run time

Power type: Cordless
Battery run time (min.): 30.0
Battery tested: 18V One+ High Performance 2Ah (PBP003)
Voltage: 18

One letdown of the PBLID02 was its battery run time in our testing. Several cheaper Ryobi impact drivers offer better run times. But consider that the tested no-load run time of 30 minutes is still long enough for most jobs around the home.

We tested battery run time with the 2Ah battery version. With an 18V One+ 4Ah or 6Ah battery, expect the battery run time to continue underperforming competing models running the same Ah setup, albeit run time increases significantly.

Battery run time

Power type: Cordless

The DCF845 is among the best-performing heavy-duty impact drivers we’ve tested, with 49.0 minutes of no-load run time. Adding a 5Ah battery should result in outstanding run time, though we didn’t test the run time with this setup.

We tested battery run time with the 2Ah battery version. With a 20V Max XR 5Ah battery, expect the battery run time to continue outperforming competing models running the same Ah setup.

Battery lineup

Ryobi 18V One+ Battery Lineup

Ryobi offers 1.5Ah, 2Ah, 4Ah, 6Ah, 8Ah, and 12Ah batteries in its 18V One+ lineup, and some versions come in a standard or high-performance model. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increases battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying a Ryobi 18V One+ High Performance 2Ah and a Ryobi 18V One+ High Performance 4Ah battery for most 18V One+ impact driver setups for a good balance of performance, price, and size.

Battery lineup

Dewalt 20V Max Battery Lineup

Dewalt offers 1.5Ah, 2Ah, 3Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, 8Ah, 10Ah, and 12Ah batteries in its Max 20V lineup. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increases battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying a Dewalt 20V Max 2Ah and a Dewalt 20V Max XR 5Ah battery for most Dewalt 20V impact driver setups for a good performance, price, and size balance.

Dewalt’s new Powerstack batteries may be a smart buying choice for some users. Dewalt advertises improved driving performance, battery run time, and more battery cycles out of its 1.7Ah and 5Ah batteries which are incredibly compact compared to equivalent Max XR models. We plan on testing the performance differences to understand if the jump in price is worth it for most people.

Many Dewalt impact drivers come in kits with a hybrid 12V and 20V charger in one, which conveniently saves space in your shop if you have multiple tools in the ecosystem.

The PBLID02 generated middle-of-the-pack max RPM on our contact tachometer. However, the performance on paper undersells its driving performance. Impact drivers with similar RPM and torque profiles couldn’t match the PBLID02’s results in our heavy-duty driving speed tests.

The three speed modes have no significant RPM difference between forward and reverse. But the assist mode offers a vastly different RPM profile depending on the forward or reverse setting selected. The assist mode in reverse nearly doubles the RPM output compared to the forward setting to quickly remove screws from your work material after the start and stop mechanism completes its cycle.

We appreciate that Dewalt didn’t design the DCF845 with an absurdly high RPM just to impress users with its on-paper performance. RPM does help drive screws fast, but torque does more to explain overall driving performance. An impact driver that ramps immediately to a high RPM results in frequent cam-out and stripping screws.

None of these are issues with the DCF845 with its moderate RPM readouts. There is also no noticeable RPM difference between forward and reverse in all three drive modes. Some Makita impact drivers include specialty driving modes with different forward and reverse RPMs for a given drive setting.

Driving clearance

Min. interior width clearance (in.): 8.250
Min. top edge clearance (in.): 1.250
Min. interior 45-deg. clearance (in.): 6.500

We don’t recommend the PBLID02 if you consistently drive fasteners in tight spaces. A sub-compact or smaller-footprint compact impact driver can squeeze into tighter spaces.

The long collet-to-back length and extensive base limit the tight spaces it can fit into and the restricted areas it can fit through.

While the DCF845 casts a thin shadow viewed from the front, it didn’t shine in our interior clearance tests, which is somewhat expected for a heavier-duty impact driver. The primary reason is the long collet-to-back length. Otherwise, the footprint resembles many competing impact drivers with similar average results in our clearance tests.

Noise

PBLID02 Impact Driver Noise Chart

Max noise no load (dBA): 86.1
Max impacting noise (dBA): 96.9

The PBLID02’s noise profile is a tale of two stories. When impacting, it is one of the quieter impact drivers we’ve tested, though all impact drivers are loud. The PBLID02 is one of the louder impact drivers when not under load. In practice, paying attention to the noise output when impacting is more critical.

The Milwaukee M12 Fuel Surge 2551-20 and Milwaukee M18 Fuel Surge 2760-20 are other options to consider. Both are hydraulic impact drivers with far quieter impacts.

No impact driver whispers while impacting, including the DCF845, a moderately loud impact driver that can damage your ears with prolonged exposure. You can shave off a few decibels of impact noise performance with the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20, but you’ll need to switch up impact driver classes to markedly improved noise performance.

Light: Yes
Light on/off: No
Number of lights: 1
Light time delay (sec.): 15.0

We’re not huge fans of the PBLID02’s work light, though it does the job in some scenarios. The light is set into the base and shines upward, whereas other models include the light around the collet and point it straight forward. The latter design approach centers the light directly where you’re driving screws.

When driving long screws with the impact driver further away from the work material, we found the PBLID02’s light was centered slightly above the screw being driven. This outcome was only an issue when driving 3-inch and longer screws.

There is no dedicated flashlight feature or the ability to disable the work light, which could minimally improve battery performance.

Light

Dewalt DCF845 Light
Dewalt DCF845 Light Closeup

Light: Yes
Light on/off: No
Number of lights: 3
Light time delay (sec.): 20.0

The DCF845’s work light illuminates a moderately large and bright surface area that is focused in the correct location. One minor head-scratcher is Dewalt’s choice of a 20-second time delay for the light, which is unnecessarily long and drains battery life.

There is no dedicated flashlight mode, one featured included with some Makita impact drivers, where the trigger acts as an on/off button to turn on the light without moving the motor. You also can’t disable the light.

Collet

Ryobi PBLID02 Collet Closeup

Collet size: 1/4-inch hex
Quick-change collet: Yes
Bit-eject collet: Yes
Easy-insert collet: Yes

The PBOID02 includes an easy insert collet that is a breeze to insert bits with one hand, great for convenience. A bit-eject collet is also included, although the jettison force may be slightly overpowered for some tastes. We found ourselves jettisoning the bit and frequently missing catching it. But after a few rounds of usage, catching the bit is easy and isn’t an issue.

Collet

Dewalt DCF845 Collet Closeup

Collet size: 1/4-inch hex
Quick-change collet: Yes
Bit-eject collet: Yes
Easy-insert collet: Yes

The DCF845 is excellent for one-handed bit changes. There is an easy-insert feature that doesn’t require sliding the collet forward to accept a bit. A bit-eject feature also lightly ejects the bit when sliding the collet forward.

Dewalt’s collet design is better executed than other brands offering similar features. The easy-insert mechanism is smooth for simple operation, and the bit-eject feature doesn’t jettison the bit too hard to potentially miss catching the bit.

App integration

App integration: None

There is no bluetooth app integration to review impact driver diagnostics or to customize driving profiles. Dewalt’s ToolConnect and Milwaukee’s One Key models offer app integrations that track impact driver usage, display tool diagnostics, and allow you to set custom driving profiles, such as adjusting the RPM for each drive mode.

App integration

App integration: None

There is no out-of-the-box bluetooth app integration to review impact driver diagnostics or to customize driving profiles on your phone.

Dewalt models like the high end Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF888 come in a ToolConnect version which includes an app integration to track impact driver usage, displays tool diagnostics, and allows you to set custom driving profiles, such as adjusting the RPM for each drive mode.

However, the DCF845 includes an expansion slot in the base where ToolConnect connectivity can be added when buying Dewalt’s after-market chip.

Warranty

Tool warranty (years): 3
Battery warranty (years): 90 day

Ryobi offers an exceptionally-long three-year warranty on its impact drivers. However, Ryobi’s battery warranties don’t come close to matching the length provided by most other manufacturers. Ryobi has a 90-day battery warranty, whereas other manufacturers commonly offer two to three years of coverage.

Warranty

Tool warranty (years): 3
Battery warranty (years): 3

Dewalt stands behind the durability of its impact drivers with exceptionally-long warranties. The DCF845 has a three-year warranty. Dewalt 20V batteries include a two-year warranty.

Dewalt also offers free maintenance and replacement of worn parts for one year for the DCF845 and three years for its 20V batteries.
