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......
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Easy Control, Ergonomic Design, Good Grip, Powerful Torque
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.
