DEWALT DCF899B 20V MAX XR Brushless High Torque 1/2″ Impact Wrench Review
When it comes to the world of power tools, a formidable manufacturer is none other than DeWalt. But, does this DeWalt DCF899B Brushless Impact Wrench deliver the power you should expect from such a world-renown company?
We have reviewed the unit, and it comes as a bare tool, meaning that it does not come with a battery or charger, a common feature in power tools from the manufacturer with model numbers ending in letter “B.” It features a heavy-duty impact mechanism capable of handling a max torque of up to 700 ft-lbs and a maximum breakaway torque of 1,200 ft-lbs.
The impact wrench has a 3-speed selector switch for controlling drive/torque depending on your application. A bright LED light is also added to enable you to work in low light situations.
This DeWalt impact wrench model is a very well balanced and ergonomically designed unit. So, what are the features that we fell in love with in this unit?
DeWalt offers us this mode with a detent pin. The detent pin anvil contains a retaining pin that you must press to release any socket from the impact driver.
The detent pin is perfect for those people who intend to work in elevated positions and will be driving nuts or bolts of the same size. This is a common feature in construction type projects such as building or bridge assembly and water tower assembly, where a detent pin prevents the socket from unexpectedly falling out.
Makita 200 Piece Metric Bit and Hand Tool Set
Article by Sam Spinosa
The Makita 200 piece metric bit and hand tool set #D-37203. A single kit that can dish out bits for multiple tools. Impact, hammer, and standard drill drivers can find the majority of bits they need all in one place. Highly recommend to guys that either have no existing bit kits, or if you just want a ton of non impact stuff all in one spot. Some of the hand tools are a little chintzy, like the metric tape measure isn’t that useful, but there are several other great details about it.
* All the different size bits you would expect, with addition of some oversize drives: 3 sizes of T40 (torx), hex bits all the way up to H8, and 1 pozidrive p24.
* This kit has a book design where if opening the case from left to right, the right panel can also open revealing a set of hand tools on the bottom of the case.
* It has a complete line of nut setters from 5.5mm to 13mm. If you work on auto body panels you might appreciate the shorter profile 13mm for Dodge, 10mm for Toyota, etc.
* It has 3.2mm & 3.5mm drill bits, which make perfect pilot holes for standard #8 and #10 screws.
* Aside from the countersink, it comes with an 8mm spade bit which can also create the right size countersink for most commonly used flat head screws.
* The included 5 piece hole saw set goes from 1 to 2.5 inches
* The box cutter comes fully loaded with 7 refills and the screwdriver is a ratcheting driver.
* The blow mold resin case has everything labeled in resin, no stickers. I wish it was waterproof but it isn’t. Maybe middle of the road thickness of the resin. It’s definently not susceptible to being cut or chipped.
