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.
Excerpt: I had my doubts that a battery operated impact wrench had the "ummps" to remove those wheel nuts on my cars, trucks, tractors and lawn mower. I was pleasantly surprised at the power and robustness of the impact driver. The supplied charger was defective and was promptly replaced by the DeWalt Customer Service.
Pros: Easy Control, Ergonomic Design, Good Grip, Powerful Torque
Summary: Used the DW059K cordless impact for rotating tires on a vehicle changing brackets on a farm tractor and screwing lag bolts on a garage door, still have not recharged the battery. Very flexible power tool sure beats starting up the air compresser or plugging in a corded impact wrench. Highly recommend this product and as with all the Dewalt tools that I have purchased the high quality is top notch. This cordless impact will last a long time.
Summary: My plan was to use it in the junkyard to break bolts that wasn't easy to use a breaker bar for. So my review here is for automotive purposes only; I'm blissfully oblivious to it's other uses. It's advertised as 300ft/lb; it feels weaker. It works okay as a power ratchet to get the nuts out after it's broken, but it doesn't do a good job breaking nuts. It'll sit there hammering without anything happening. The breaker bar or the ratchet would get the nut out no problem.
Summary: Tool works well on day to day use of lag screws 6-8" in length. Whether installing or removeing. Only problem is rocker switch fails to engage gun after about 2 months of use requireing repair. But every brand that I have used in the past that was electric with same switch type also failed.I will purchase the Dewalt impact cordless from now on because it is cordless and there is no differ- ence in this one and the electric version.
Summary: Tool works as advertized. However, the locking pin is crazy stiff forcing you to pry off your socket. Nothing a file won't fix. The battery lasts for four too five cars (4wheels off; 4wheels on using a torque stick), by which time the other pack is charged. The only thing it can not handle are Domestic lugs on full size trucks, most of which are overtightened to 150-200 ft lbs. One of those trucks and the battery is zapped. Airwrench time.
Summary: This impact wrench is larger than most others, and a bit heavier, but with more torque than you'd ever need it's an easy trade. Even for Dewalt, who make great tools, this wrench is above average for quality. It just feels like it means business. I've yet to find something it can't loosen or tighten (and I've been looking - at home and around my mother's ranch for rusty bolts just to see if it can do the job - it can).
Summary: If you are looking for a cordless impact that will do the job this is definitley the one to buy. Plenty of staying power and the battery recharge is quick. If you want to tighten up stove bolts I have a Makita and a Miluwakee I'll sell you but if you want to have something with enough power to do something buy this one.
Summary: My only gripe on this tool is the trigger. It may work fine for others, but it just doesn't seem to be that user friendly for me. I'm used to a single triger, with a FWD/REV selector switch. It is a bit large, but works perfectly, is powerful, and has a long battery life. I used it on wheel lugs, up to 3/4 in. bolts. I recommend it.
