They launched the 1/4-inch Hex 4.3-Amp PCE201 specifically to give tradesmen an option in the workplace. The Porter-Cable PCE201 4.3-amp impact driver is designed for deck builders, steel roofing installers and other tradesmen who complete numerous fastening applications in challenging workplaces (but who have easy access to power).


Porter-Cable PCE201 4.3-amp Impact Driver Features

The PCE201 provides the same performance of Porter-Cable’s cordless impact drivers, like the Porter-CablePCCK640LB impact driver, but has the potential to increase productivity since the tool doesn’t need to be constantly recharged or have batteries swapped out.

The Porter-Cable PCE201 4.3-amp impact driver features a 4.3-amp motor and delivers 3,500 beats per minute (BPM) to get the work done. It uses the metal gear housing as a heat sync to help dissipate heat build up caused by the impacting mechanism. The PCE201 impact driver is compact, yet delivers 1,450 inch-lbs of maximum torque. With a variable speed trigger and reverse gear, the PCE201 spins at up to 2,900 revolutions per minute (RPM) so you can control what you’re doing. The tool does lack a 2-speed/mode gearbox, so finer applications like hinges might require a tool with a bit more finesse.

 Porter-Cable PCE201 4.3-amp Impact Driver

The Porter-Cable PCE201 Impact Driver weighs 3.25 pounds and it’s pretty compact so you should be able to use it in tight spaces. It integrates an electric brake, a 1/4-inch hex chuck and external brushes so you can service the motor. There’s also a reversible belt hook which we’ve found handy – particularly when doing work on a ladder or in scenarios where you need to set the drill down in an awkward location.


The tool will be available November 2012 at Lowe’s and independent distributors and will retail for just under $90 and come with a 3-year limited warranty and one-year service contract.
