Summary: Helped me too easily change the bad wheel bearings on my wife's car. The torque on this thing really delivers! Battery life is outstanding. The only bolts that it couldn't take off were ones that were previously overtightened.......500ft-lbs of torque when the torque specs only called for 70ft-lbs on that particular bolt. The only con is that there isn't a way to tell how much torque is being allied.
DeWalt cordless impact wrench with 300 ft-lbs of torque does the job!
12 January 2015
Summary: This impact wrench develops 300 ft-lbs of torque and does a great job. I noticed that this was the model that I saw most people carrying at the junk yard so I read up before buying one. The kit comes with a charger, two (2!) batteries and a case which is really nice. There are a lot of other cordless impoact wrenches that don't develop as much torque and some of them are by DeWalt, so read the wrapper carefully before buying.
Summary: This review was first written in 2011 for the DW059B I (then) purchased. Since that time I have purchased (2) additional DW059K-2 kits, having been so pleased with the impact's performance. I am posting that review with updates, based upon my experience with the impact since that time. I own a business where we source vehicle parts for various shops - obsolete parts, discontinued parts, and when we're unable to locate NOS parts - used parts.
Summary: Everything and more that is expected from Dewalt. Very strong and powerful. No doubt this impact wrench would remove the most stubborn wheel nuts. Every job I have used it on has been perfect. Comes with two batteries and a charger with carrying case. I always say you get the quality of what you pay for. It may cost a little more for this tool but I expect to get many years of service.
Summary: Very powerful and long lasting batteries. Compact size makes this great to carry in the RV in case of a flat tire. Using it currently to assist in a Corvette restoration. Excellent quality and makes nut and bolt removal a breeze. Use it more that my air impact.
Summary: I have always used air impacts because the battery powered ones did not have enough power. This impact has a lot more torque then my IR air impact. It comes with NiCad batteries so as the battery runs down you lose power so you need a second battery on hand if you need full power.
