This is an excellent tool. It’s high quality and has a lot of power. It can take of lug nuts without any effort. It actually broke a bolt on me when I was tightening a nut.
The power of this drill will just about satisfy anyone looking to remove the even the tightest nuts. It provides quick power that can be used for the toughest of jobs, such as loosening lag bolts and truck lug nuts. Removing wheels can be done win a hurry. One customer noted that he removed 80lb torqued lug nuts even when the battery was getting low.

The DeWalt DW059K-2 however is not with it’s flaws. It’s doesn’t have variable speed or an electric brake. The trigger is set up so that pressing the top will remove the bolt, and pressing the bottom will tighten it. Having a forward and reverse switch is more practical.
Also, it’s big and heavy. It can be hard to position sometimes and you won’t be able to fit it into tight spots.
The DeWalt DW059K-2 is recommend if you want to get the toughest jobs done. It provides plenty of power, quick battery charge, and durability.
This impact wrench is larger than most others, and a bit heavier, but with more torque than you’d ever need it’s an easy trade. Even for Dewalt, who make great tools, this wrench is above average for quality. It just feels like it means business. I’ve yet to find something it can’t loosen or tighten (and I’ve been looking – at home and around my mother’s ranch for rusty bolts just to see if it can do the job – it can). – E. Richman
Good tool, quite powerful. I use it a lot when I work on my truck. Well built, rugged and strong. Battery life is great. However it is very noisy (need hearing protection), has no brake, very heavy and is not as powerful as expected. The socket attachement is not practical at all. – Frenchy (San Franciso)
Another job that I had been putting off was changing my rear struts. Some mechanics quoted me upwards of $200 just for the labor, as I had already picked up new parts myself. I had no problems loosening the lug nuts, strut mounting bolts or the strut nut on top. It took it off and tightened it with ease. If you are somewhat mechanically inclined and wouldn’t mind doing the bigger projects, you’ll save yourself a lot of money and time. The only con I have experienced so far as others have mentioned is that this particular model does not have variable speed. – Shannon Kobashigawa
