I bought this for about this price in the spring. It is a good tool, complete with calibration certificate. I primarily use it for wheel nut torque at 100 ft-lbs. One thing not obvious from the CanTire description is that this has ratchet operation - a very nice feature.
My only complaint is that the case can be tough to open sometimes.
I don't understand the down votes without a reason given.

Why would you get this over the regular Mastercraft Maximum version which is cheaper and has lifetime warranty(This one has 1 year)?

Just because it says Dewalt?

Is this actually made by DeWalt or just rebranded?

Aw man this is tempting, but I'm quite happy with impact wrench and haven't had any issues when working with lug bolts and nuts. To add to this thread, just came across a set of impact torque sticks for $80 on their site:

Dunno if it's a historical low, but seems fair for what it is.

People are buying the $17 Princess Auto one. I bought the PA one as a secondary/backup, but found out that the lugs I torqued with it were way under torqued (I also have a recently calibrated Craftsman from the 90's... well before they lost their way).

I posted in that Princess Auto thread and people were pretty unhappy that I was trashing the thing.. I guess buying a precision tool that isn't precise is ok as long as it's cheap?

Website is wrong then. It is lifetime warranty. Says so right on the package. This is the most popular torque wrench on RFD.

Pretty sure that the lifetime warranty does not apply to the calibration of the tool.

It doesn't. I never said it did.

Glad I saw this been thinking of getting one for my toolset and saw the pa one on sale again. Maybe I will get this one instead

I have a 20 year old beam type torque wrench which I admit I only ever use for wheel lugs. It was cheap and super reliable (no need to recalibrate - ever). Are people using these click types for something other than wheel lugs?
