Excerpt: DeWalt has some pretty powerful impact drivers and wrenches, but their new DW059HK-2 18V XRP NiCd Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil is nearly twice as strong as their existing DC821KA 1/2″ Impact Wrench. The DW059HK-2 was designed from the ground up as a brand new tool that could hold up to (and thrive in) extremely high-torque applications. We’re talking the stuff undertaken by real pros, be they mechanics, contractors, plumbers, or maintenance professionals.
Excerpt: The body of the DW059 is made of a high impact ABS plastic. A rubber overmold provides some cushioning on the handle. At just over 7 1/2 pounds it's a heavy tool that will quickly build up arm muscle if used for hours on end. Fortunately it's typical used intermittently rather than continuously. It uses a large rocker style trigger.
Pros: Durable construction, Ample power, Great battery life
Cons: Heavy, Loud, No electric brake, No variable speed, No torque control, Rocker style trigger
