Highly recommended. I purchased it at my local Home Depot along with a drill set that included two DCB207 batteries. To my surprise one of the batteries already had a full charge as indicated by the charger. I took it to my garage and in a little more than 2 minutes, using the van's jack and a 3/4 socket, I had the van on stands and the wheels off. It not only had enough power to take the lug nuts off, but it jacked the van up with ease. Both tasks took mere seconds. I'll be putting this wrench in our van for our holiday trip across the turnpike.
The trigger is a much improved version than that of the 18v DW059B in that it slides straight back, and doesn't tilt like the 059 making it seem like it handles better. It is heavy like the 059, but that is to be expected. The detent seems hard and made it difficult at times to put a socket on. But compared to the other features, it is a minimal gripe. The built-in light wasn't helpful until I needed an expedient light source. I simply tapped the trigger and I had several seconds of light. And, of course, it uses the 20v max batteries which seem to be a much better system than the 18v.
Bottom line, itâs a good product worth every penny I paid for it. The Home Depot I shopped was excellent as well. The attendant in the self-check-out line had the tool to take the security tag off so I didn't have to wait in a long line. This was my first Dewalt purchase, but It won't be my last.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DeWaltAfficionado Awesome Impact Wrench
This is an awesome impact wrench. Easily handles everything I throw at it, including lug nuts, lag bolts, etc. I've used it for rotating tires on all my chariots, repairing my deck, building some planter boxes in my backyard, and screwing anchor bolts into my garage floor. Be sure to get the 'new for 2014' Type 2 model which features 400 ft-lbs of torque vs. 300 in the older Type 1 model, and a few other improvements like variable torque control at the trigger, repositioned LED light at the base of the handle, and battery level indication using the LED light. You can tell the difference by the redesigned nose cone on the Type 2 (the one with the horizontal slats).

Home Depot had the best price on the item. Got it on the date stated.
It performs well, doing all things I had hoped it would.
Only con is the pin that holds the socket on. It truly locks it on and makes the socket hard to get off. Solution I found is to have the pin insert in the socket where there is a hole in the socket. A punch can then be used to depress the pin making removal easier.

This tool is amazing for the mobile technician! There isn't much that this tool cannot unfasten or torque down. It works amazing for lugnuts even on large trucks, and I've used it for large suspension jobs as well as the quick break inspection. The 20 V Max batteries last forever and a day, and I am very pleased.
