Just twist your wrist to switch from forward to reverse—twist it further to increase the speed!

Overview

When operating DeWalt's Gyroscopic Screwdriver, think of it as exactly that—a screwdriver. Twist to the left to loosen, twist to the right to tighten. If you want to increase the speed, simply twist your wrist further. Sensors inside the tool respond to the motion of your wrist, eliminating the need for manual switches. The adjustable two-position handle allows both an in-line screwdriver configuration or a pistol-grip configuration, while dual LED lights provide better visibility in dark spaces. The kit includes two battery packs, each of which can last for up to 5 days of runtime with the typical user. For a compact, portable screwdriver with precise, intuitive speed control, look no further than the DeWalt DCF680N2.

  • Motion-activated forward and reverse eliminates need for manual switch
  • Motion-activated variable speed from 0-430 RPM—simply turn your wrist further in either direction to speed up the drill
  • Adjustable two-position handle allows for operation in either in-line or pistol-grip positions
  • Excellent for light fastening applications in wood, plastic, and light-gauge metal
  • LED light illuminates confined areas without casting shadows
  • On-board battery indicator warns user when battery is low
  • 1/4'' hex-shank chuck holds 1'' driver bits and allows for quick screwdriver bit changes
  • 8V MAX battery pack boasts longer run-time and charges in only one hour
  • Fifteen clutch positions for precise control to prevent stripping

Great tool once you get the hang of it. Very innovative.

Tony Posted January 3, 2015
I bought the first incarnation of this DeWalt 8V tool a year or so ago (not the B&D version) at a big box store. It is my go-to for light/medium work. It took some getting used to as I kept pressing the trigger harder to get it to run faster... Wrong!

After a few tries I got the hang of it. The trigger is really an on/off switch and there is no reverse switch. Just load the drill/driver, put it in place and press the trigger. Except for the light going on, nothing happens until you rotate your wrist. To go clockwise, rotate your hand/wrist clockwise (to the right); the more you turn your wrist, the faster it goes. Likewise for reverse, rotate counter-clockwise (to the left). After a while this becomes intuitive.

This tool is not an impact driver, but has a similar looking ΒΌ" hex quick-release chuck.

Thinking about this tool, I felt that it could use a little more torque. Then again, if it were a 12V tool, the rotational torque could hurt your wrist or jump out of your hand if the tool bottomed-out at full speed... Ouch! Rethinking my thought, DeWalt made a good choice with 8V.

I would definitely recommend this tool, but also note that it is different than traditional drill/drivers. So give yourself a little time to get used to it.
