that video test is cool but it doesn't really show much other than the dealt isn't operating at an RPM that is as high. Doesn't really show what the max torque is or both. I have heard this thing is extremely powerful, if I needed to spend $270 on a tool for lug nuts I would be all over it

Or, you know, most things on a vehicles suspension or undercarriage.

I have the Milwaukee Fuel Impact Wrench and love it, but this Dewalt seems better since it has 3 speeds vs 2 speed on my Milwaukee, and more importantly the speed switch looks easier to use.
Wearing gloves while working, I often find the speed button hard to press, a minor detail.

I think I paid a similar price at IHLCanada.

Just checked IHLCanada for comparison:

DEWALT DCF899B 20-Volt Max XR Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2 in. Impact Wrench with Detent Pin Anvil (Tool Only) = $249.95
DEWALT DCF899HP2 20-Volt Max XR Brushless High Torque 1/2 in. Impact Wrench Kit with Hog Ring Anvil (2x 5Ah batteries+charger+bag) = $379.00
Milwaukee 2762-20 M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. High Torque Impact Wrench with Pin Detent (Tool Only) = $249.95

The kit for $379 seems like the best deal if you need battery or charger.

have it but in the brushed version. Have had it for a couple of years now and it is damn powerful. Never any issues. I had lent it out to a friend to undo his stuck on lug nuts. They came off no issues. Compared to my old ingersoll rand cordless impact, the dewalt kills it.

pick it up! you won't regret it.

The specs on this DeWalt are quite decent - and the price is excellent for this bare tool. If you don't have a compressor and air tools, this is a very good option. I've had overtorqued bolts before (thank you, Costco...) and let's just say that there are times when it's useful to have the kind of power that this tool can deliver.

More than decent. This thing is a beast at 700 ft-lbs of max torque.

Yeah - it's a good tool and the hog ring is a good feature. I hope that the plastic casing is up to the types of jobs that the specs are suited for tackling.

I have it, and it works very vell.

It is powerful, and ripping off a nut head could be easily done. I would NOT use this to remove/fasten 'tuner/chrome' wheel lug nuts. Cheap OEM steel ones? sure :)

If someone is in Kanata and want to have a handle, I can arrange for a meet with the tool at the Standard Auto Wreckers junk yard :)

My number 2 tool when I junk yard hunt for parts!

Also note: the bare tool (that I got anyways) was made in the USA, not China... if that matters for purchasing conundrums.
Total $ spent because of RFD... $15,277.42
Total $ saved because of RFD... $7471.93

Not paying 'retail' for anything: Priceless

I tested the DCF880B. My lugs are torques to 80ft/lb and it removed then easily.

I guess I should stick with 1/2" gear.

Op's is rates at 700-Feet /lbs vs 150-Feet /lbs for the one I got. For me it is enough for the lugs.

No trouble for me removing lugnutz tightened to 150ftlbs, but I wouldn't expect any different from a tool with specs like this. I also used it a few weeks ago to install a front trailer hitch on my truck (for bikes) and it was a big help there too. Because it's battery powered, I used it more than I used my air impact before, since it's less hassle.

It's a great tool, I have it for a couple years. The best to change wheels.
