[Amazon.ca] Dewalt 20 volt DCF894B impact wrench bare tool $247

Good price for the mid-range impact wrench bare tool if you already have Dewalt batteries

Not a great deal at all IMO. Lowe’s had t for 169 and Mississauga hardware had it for 149. If you can wait, definitely wait for a better deal.

I bought this a few months ago at HD on a price beat for $220. The first one lasted one seasonal tire change before the fwd/rev directional switch broke. The second one has done two more seasonal changeovers plus two boat trailer tires. It works great but the aformentioned switch seems "mushy" on these. You want to run this with a 5ah batt for sure.

**now that I have read the op's post properly I do agree that the price he paid for bare-tool only is def not hot. My deal came with a 2ah battery for $220** Sorry for the confusion.

Are you positive its the same model op is talking about? They have a similar looking model that is lighter duty and cheaper.

Not a good deal. The 899 goes on sale for around 300ish and comes with 2x5ah batteries and charger.

Now if this was the same price and comes with batteries that would be good. Nice that it is quite a bit smaller than the 899

I have the 894 and I got the bare tool for $199 as I needed it then, if you can wait you can definitely get better pricing. I have owned it for a year and no issues with the fed/rev switch.

Will never see those prices again, last year Dewalt instructed vendors not to offer those deep discounts on it's line of tools. They have implemented a minimum pricing policy

A little pricey for something to break lug nuts with.

You will never see a source because minimum price levels are illegal. They can pull advertising funds or lower your discount structure but nobody can force anyone to sell something at a certain price without some steep fines.

For those who only want an impact wrench for tire changes, the cheaper Milwaukee M12 Fuel Stubby took off my vehicles lugs with no problem at all.
I did a Sienna, Civic, Forester & a Tundra.
The highest torque it had to remove was the Tundra of course (~100ft/lb).
