Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flipper Worth the Money
I have used this tool professionally for about 4 years. Good quality and durability. Batteries are still original and still run for a long time. It has been and abused but keeps on going. The only issue is from being dropped and banged around the clips on the battery have broken off, so I have to tape the battery on to the tool which is not a problem because I don't need to change them that often. I bought this new one for home use since I feel it should last forever with casual home use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flatback1986 Awesome impact !
I purchased this tool mainly because I need the extra batteries. This impact came with the higher performing batteries with the yellow color on the top. The batteries are longer lasting than the standard black on top. I used the tool and was surprised at how much power it has for the size. My buddy had to remove a rim from his 30 ft triple axle tailer, he laughted when I handed him the impact, he said this will never break the lug nuts loose. Then he tried it and is a believer.... Now. The tool was thirty dollars more than the batteries alone, i could not go wrong with this purchase, plus its a Dewalt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Does not work as advertised. Torque is very low. Tool is underpowered.
The product is advertised as generating 1740 in lbs of torque ... or 145 ft lbs. It is supposed to be ideal for loosening lug nuts - exactly why I purchased it.
Contrary to claims, it would not loosen common lug nuts, and could generate only 50 ft lbs of torque.
I loosened a lug nut MANUALLY - because the tool couldn't do it - and then let the tool tighten it back up. It only tightened it to 50 ft lbs. I checked it with a proper torque wrench. I could easily continue to tighten it with a normal socket wrench.
Tool was brand new, batteries were fully charged ... it simply does not work as advertised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VenturaHomeRepair A Little Pricey but worth it !
Purchased this item due to needing new batteries and charger for my existing tools. Works great ! I have used it to
speed up the process of replacing the struts on my wife's car.
I still double checked with a socket and breaker bar after though because this tool does not have the strength to tighten some bolts and lug nuts to proper torque. Over all
it did a great job and I would recommend this impact driver to a friend.
