    Q:Will this drill generate enough power or torque to remove a 21MM wheel lug nut?
    by|Feb 12, 2018
    6 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  I do not believe it will and it is lucky to drill numerous 3/4 holes through studs any more than a dozen times the torque fact depletes the batter very quickly.

    by|May 5, 2023

    A:  If the lug nut was properly torqued when installed, then no.

    by|May 5, 2023

    A:  No, you need an impact driver. This tool is a drill driver.

    by|May 5, 2023

    A:  probably not because you would have use a hammer drill something that would ratchet or hammer. i think the drill would twist in your hand.

    by|May 5, 2023

      A:  I do not believe it will remove tight lug nuts. I use it for lag bolts, and hex head roof screws. It is not an impact gun.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  No, you need a impact gun which you can buy cordless, corded or pneumatic.

          I have had this drill for 5 years. The batteries now won't charge, but I have used this thing to the max on several occasions and I couldn't be happier with the result. A couple more batteries and this thing will last another 5 years. Mine does not have an led light, which is handy. Also if you are doing a ton of overhead work a lighter lithium ion or smaller voltage would be better. You can definitely get a forearm and shoulder workout if working overhead. My father has a craftsman 19.2 volt and this will run circles around that. Overall very pleased with my black Friday purchase 5 years ago!

            Cordless Driver is a bit heavy, but a great value with plenty of power.
            Purchased item for all around basic use. It's a bit heavy, but holds a charge very well, and has plenty of power for turning even the toughest screws. Bag is a bit small, but holds all items, including charger. Overall, this was a great value.

            Great Product!
            Got this drill as a birthday gift for my husband - he loved it! Says its the best gift I've ever gotten him! The drill and driver charge quickly and are strong, despite being compact. Great product!

            Unbreakable!
            Had this drill since 2008 and never failed me. I've dropped it numerous times off an 8' ladder and it's still running strong. Also the battery life is unbelievable! Still only takes about a 1/2 hour to fully charge and it will run all day with moderate use!! No signs of getting weak at all!!! Will definitely buy another one when this starts to slow down, if ever. You will get your moneys worth on this drill. And I bought mine when it was $160. What a deal at $99!!!!!!

            This drill has excellent power.
            In the past I've had many different cordless drills,but have never bought a Dewalt because of the price differntial. When I saw this drill at The Home Depot at the "special price"I had to have it. Being a woodworker for 50 years I have seen and in one case used a Dewalt cordless drill of a friend of mine and was surprised at the power. I had to have one.
