Q:Can this be used with hole saw? It would be great if it can drill holes in the studs.
by|Feb 8, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  No. This powered ratchet is designed for light duty fastening applications. It's not intended to use with hole saws by the manufacturer DEWALT. We would recommend using a drill instead.

      Q:Is the 70 FT-LBS set or can you adjust the FT-LB S to a lower setting?
      by|Jan 26, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  The model DCF512B has a variable speed trigger. It does not have speed, FT-LBS selections. The more you depress the trigger the higher the speed and offered specifications.

          Well built versatile ATOMIC Compact 1/2 RATCHET
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I finally got to use my 1/2 compact atomic series ratchet 20 volt. It is well balanced and liteweight { with battery installed }.It is very compact for a 1/2 drive and get get into tight arias...Of course the power will depend on the amp battery you use,but has excellent power and long life for the difficult jobs I get into in my personel garage. It is very well constructed and will take quite a bit rough handling and everyday use. it's size makes it easy to get into spaces where you can get a box end wrench into. Just another good quality product from Dewalt and readily available locally everywhere.As you can see by photos I am a diehard Dewalt user and can honestly recomend these products.

            20 Volt Ratchet
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used the 20 volt ratchet to install a hitch on my truck. Worked well and would recommend in the future. Used the slim 20 volt battery. A standard 20 volt was a little bulky but manageable when tested. Great quality and slim design made it easy to access tight areas. Made my install go off without a “hitch”.

              An amazing and handy ratchet tool
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Absolutely love this product! The ratchet fits perfectly into tight places when working on my car. It's lightweight and the LED helps light up those small dark areas around the engine. I've used the ratchet to tighten down some nuts and bolts on my kids playground.

                Wrist Saver!!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm in absolute love with this thing! This ratchet is very useful for me as I have carpal tunnel and when I'm using a standard ratchet my hand and wrist kills me. The amount of time it saves is also wonderful, it gets in places that a impact wrench won't fit and I can't explain how much time that saves me. Highly recommend!!

                  Powerful driver
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have an old home that needs some floor joists reinforced. A traditional driver doesn't give me enough space with reinforcing 2x on one or both sides of the joists. This ½" Atomic Series was the perfect compact tool. I drove 3½ lag bolts into old, hard joists like a hot knife through butter. The work light is helpful and I really like the grip for working above my head. I have many of the 20V Max tools and this is a great addition to my DeWalt line I may not have a ton of uses for this but when I do need it, I will be glad I have it.

                    Well designed power ratchet
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The dewalt 20V 1/2” ratchet is really nice. Very light weight, just the right size as far as gripping it in my hand. I like the fact that it has a light that shines on the work area. The lock is nice.

                      Tough for tough jobs
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 1/2 inch for those stubborn bolts. Amazing torque with the accessibility to fit in tight areas. Those 70 ft-lbs of torque come in handy. Along with the LED light and the speed setting. Light weight depending on the battery used.

                        Powerful Ratchet
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Give your wrists and knuckles a break with this DeWalt DCF512B ATMOIC 20 volt 1/2 Inch Cordless Ratchet, that will for most uses replace the air ratchet, the trip hazard air hose and that constant compressor noise. The variable speed trigger helps with precise control when tightening or loosening nuts and bolts. This ratchet is somewhat bulky and slightly heavy, but when you snap on a Extension, Wobble Extension or a Swivel with the Socket on the Detent Pin, this tool will shine, and replace the standard ratchet for most of its duty. With this model number, you switch from Forward to Reverse with the twist of the Ratchets head, which I don't necessarily care for, but recommend keeping this switch oiled for a consistently smooth operation. As with most cordless tools, a fully charged rather larger AH "Amp-Hour" battery provides better results, so I would stick with more of the 4 AH and up batteries for best results, especially if needing to achieve the factory stated 70 ft-lbs. of torque and 60 ft-lbs of breakaway torque. The LED light provides user with illumination when working in dimly lit areas,, and as a plumber, this ratchet tool will snap Cast Iron pipe using Wheeler Rex Repair Cutters overhead or in various awkward positions, making the job that much easier and less fatigue, reulting in better work production. This model number does not include a battery, charger or a bag.

                          Amazing ratchet too!
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this product! The Dewalt Atomic Brushless Ratchet is amazing. I love that it’s solid enough without being too bulky. The brushless motor is powerful and I think the LED light is a nice bonus. Thank you Dewalt for allowing me to sample this product.

                            Dewalt Atomic 1/2" Compact Ratchet
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this ratchet for the purpose of working on my car and our jobs particularly outside and it works Great. Dewalt put a-lot of thought into durability and comfort which is to be expected. The only reason I will drop a star, would be great if the head was offset by about 25° to 40° to make room for the battery when working against flush surfaces. But I gotta say, for it's intended purpose, it's an awesome addition to anyone's toolbox.
