  1. not-so-light-weight Dan

    The size is right, and is comfortable with one hand. Has plenty of tq and was able to get off my lugs. Is it enough for that one rusty bolt from hell? No, but for everything else, this can handle. Will update over time.

  2. Adam A.

    This impact is about the same size as the older 110-ft-lb model but provides 3x as much torque. I’ve used it to bust off lug nuts, 2-ton tie rod and drag link ball joints, and tons of truck suspension control arms, all of which require 125ft-lb or more of torque. The anti spin feature really helps to keep that power under control once the nut is loose. And its small size allows me to get it into tight spots under 4x4s that traditionally-sized 1/2in drive impacts can’t reach.

  3. Jeff B.

    It takes out the wheel nuts of my Dodge Ram without any problems. It is way smaller and lighter than the DCF899 which I also have and will now use only on heavier jobs. It is good to have both impacts and use the smallest, lightest one that will do the job. As for the detent pin versus hog ring debate, I have both on different guns and both do the job equally well. I have really no preference, buy the one that will be the less expensive at the time of your buy, that’s it.

  4. JB

    Super glad I bought this. I wanted versatility to use on lug nuts to lighter-duty applications without destroying fasteners. This “mid-torque” model is well suited to most DIY jobs – brakes, lug nuts, truck bed tie down bolts, etc. Have used on mower blades, snowblower fasteners, etc. (carefully), and appreciate its ability to do multiple tasks without destroying some of the smaller stuff. Good balance if that’s what you’re looking for.

  5. Arizona Steve

    If you turn wrenches as a hobby or side gig, and you already have some Dewalt batteries, this is a no brainer. I normally use it with a smaller 2ah battery. It will easily remove 95% of the fasteners that I encounter. When working on something like a 3/4 ton vehicle or heavy duty suspension, this might need a little help. It isn’t as small as a stubby Milwaukee, but it only costs half the price.

  6. Kaleem

    open lug nuts …. or any nut which is stuck and your ranch wants you to use all your strength. Easy to use and has so much power. I used it on lug nuts with low power and it was still enough to open them and close them tight.I wanted to buy the bigger one but after using it I am sure a home owner and a car owner would not need anything bigger than this …. and if you might need something bigger at some random time go rent it do not go for bigger than this one because bigger is also heavy which can make this difficult to work on.

  7. Ironman&Ultrarunner

    i bought this one instead of its bigger brother for the ease of handling because it provides all of the torque that i need for my application, which is some mechanical work on my tahoe. it has no problems removing wheels, nuts underneath the car. i purchased this drill specifically to install a 3.5″ lift kit….it worked perfectly and provided more than enough torque. this drill is perfect in my hand and not too heavy. the led light is a nice touch! btw, if you are working with wheels….do yourself a favor and buy a set of torque sticks. i over tightened a nut and it sheared off the bolt while i was driving!

  8. DavidFromCT

    Hasn’t had an issue with anything I’ve thrown at it. Precision drive makes for smooth performance when removing multiple bolts of the same type. Faces stiff competition from Milwaukee but at the price offers a lot of power. For those not requiring more than 250 lb of drive torque, the new Dewalt DCF901 12V stubby 1/2 inch drive is a compelling alternative. I own both, and I’ll be using the DCF901 95% of the time.

  9. Mark

    After using this for a few months I don’t know how I ever lived without it. I was looking at the larger Dcf899 and found this. For a much lower price it gets the job done and doesn’t kill my wrists. No problem removing lug nuts and other bolts on my truck. Zipped my bolts out of my lawnmower blades like they were nothing. I’m sure for larger jobs the DCF899 would be a must but for almost all my diy mechanic work I haven’t had this fail to remove a bolt yet.

  10. Hank Scorpio’s Brother

    Ok. Remember : if you are buying this it’s to try and make your life a bit easier on DIY stuff cos your wrists are old and your knuckle skin doesn’t heal like it used to.You are not assembling an oil pipeline in the Artic tundra and as such need to relax…This delivers more than enough torque to get through 90% of any automobile challenges (I purchased for a suspension overhaul/ rebuild on a 20 year truck and it only failed to remove one bolt which eventually had to be drilled out anyway.. So for those saying “Fail. Couldn’t even take my wheel nuts off” , I’m sorry that you live in a salt mine.Whatever you are using this for know it’s light and smaller than most impact hammers which makes a difference on so many occasions.Also people- spray down your bolts with penetrant on the project your doing three times a week for the one week before you start. It’s a life changer.
