Frequently Asked Questions
Does this come with a battery and charger?
This model is battery operated, but the battery is inside the tool. One charger is included with your 8V Cordless Impact Forcedriver.
How much does the 8V Cordless Impact Forcedriver weigh?
It’s hard to believe how much power’s packed into the Forcedriver. Don’t let the 1.34lbs fool you – with 225 in-lbs of torque, you’ll be able to drive large fasteners or remove seized or rusted bolts with surprising ease. With three handle positions, this tool will become an indispensable go-to for any household.
What makes the 8V Cordless Impact Forcedriver different than a typical screwdriver?
Typical screwdrivers are meant for relatively easy jobs, including installing or removing screws and maybe making pre-drilled holes in soft woods. A typical electric screwdriver automates the tedious jobs that we’d otherwise do by hand. The Forcedriver does all that, but takes it further than just a typical screwdriver and get into the most difficult areas with its adjustable handle. Equipped with impact, Forcedriver delivers 10x’s more power than a typical screwdriver to allow you to tackle harder tasks like removing stripped or damaged screws and small bolts. Forcedriver gives you more than a typical screwdriver in a smaller-than-a-drill package. You’ll do more than you thought possible with less than you expected.
If I have to choose between a Forcedriver and an impact driver, what is better? How will I know which is right for me?
Comparing Forcedriver and an impact drill is difficult because they aren’t exactly equivalent tools. To know what’s going to be a better fit for your toolbox, it’s best to understand what kinds of jobs you plan to handle.
For basic projects, like hanging pictures, minor household repairs, or assembling pre-fab furniture, a tool like our SD Driver
will meet your needs.
For next-level projects, like installing cabinets, deck repair, bike repairs, or tougher-than-average jobs including punchwork for electricians or HVAC work, the Forcedriver would be perfect for you. This will help you tackle all the easy to intermediate jobs you may encounter.
For expert level projects, like construction (including building decks, sheds) or more intensive jobs, upgrade to a bigger drill, like the Worx 20V Impact Driver
, Ai Drill and Driver
, Brushless Drill and Driver
, or even our Drill and Impact Driver Combo kit
How much torque does the Worx Cordless Impact Forcedriver have?
Torque is a measurement of turning power. The 8V Cordless Impact Forcedriver has about 225 inch-pounds of torque letting it easily master most common drilling and driving applications around the house.
What is the auto-impact function?
The auto-impact function applies extra force and power when Forcedriver senses you have a tough job to handle, like a stripped screw. Extra force allows the bit to grip damaged screw heads and remove them, but without over-burdening your typical jobs.
What size chuck does the Worx Forcedriver have? Where can I buy bits?
The Forcedriver will take 1/4" hex bits, which can be purchased at any local hardware or home improvement store.
How do I change the bits?
To change the bit, pull the collar away from the head of the Forcedriver. Insert the 1/4” hex bit and release the collar. That’s it! You’re ready to work. To remove, pull the collar away from the head of the Forcedriver and pull out the bit.
How long does it take to charge the battery?
The battery will recharge in about 5 hours.
Does the Forcedriver have a light?
Yes, there’s an LED light on the Forcedriver to help you see what you’re working on.
