Got this after the Craftsman impact wrench, night and day difference! This DeWalt is 300 ft lbs compaired to the Craftsman 200. This DeWalt has taken off numerous lug nuts from a dozen cars and still hasn't been recharged (20v 3.0 mha). EXCELLENT Bang for the buck!
Bought and used several times. Extreme power and quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I bought this a couple weeks ago, in anticipation of breaking some nuts that were subject to 19 years of salt and water...these things were the definition of RUST and were frozen. They were 22mm. No problem for this impact wrench. Save a lot of time and energy.
Bought about a year ago when I had to disassemble some large swing sets for relocation and had no access to power for air tools. These are built with good size bolts, 1/2" or larger, and have been sitting in the weather since 1996.
The Dewalt wrenches ripped the old hardware out like they were toys! By the end of the job the batteries were still showing close to full power and I reassembled the toys on the same charge with the new hardware. They have held up great and worked well on many other jobs since.
The only downside to this wrench is that it is a bit bulky and heavy, I see there are now XR versions that are a nicer size, but can't complain about how this unit performs.
Only down side is the size/weight factor. It works great and is a big time savor.
This impact has yet to fail to loosen any nut or bolt I have needed undone.
