Porter Cable Brushless EDGE Drill And Impact Driver – Pushing The Edge

Many innovation in the tool industry has come from Porter Cable brand over the years, the first portable belt sander and the world’s first helical drive circular saw.

They are now under the DeWalt umbrella, and one of their great tools is the Porter Cable Brushless EDGE 20V MAX Drill Driver And Impact Driver.

Brushless motors, combined with Lithium Ion batteries, provide more efficient operation, which translates to more power and longer run times.

Here are the specs from Porter Cable:

– Brushless motor provides 50% more run time
– Powerful motor has 370 MWO (Max Watts Out) of power for heavy duty applications with minimal stall
– Transmission has 1,800 MAX RPM for speed of drilling & fastening applications; No Load Speed: 0-450/0-1800 rpm
– 1/2″ Ratcheting chuck for improved and reliable bit retention
– Compact size of 7.4″ for work in tight spaces
– Lightweight design at 3.3 lbs. (including battery) for less fatigue
– Capacity in Steel ½”, in wood 1”

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Since the kit comes with two batteries, that should allow enough time to re-juice the spare.
  • A built-in holder keeps your bits handy.
  • Other features include an LED light that comes on when you pull the trigger, and stays on for 18 – 20 seconds.

  • The Porter Cable brushless drill is pretty lightweight, which is a definite plus.

    The rubber overmold adds decent cushioning, and should help when using the drill for long periods.
