Rips rusty bolts out with easeBought about a year ago when I had to disassemble some large swing sets for relocation and had no access to power for air tools. These are built with good size bolts, 1/2" or larger, and have been sitting in the weather since 1996.
The Dewalt wrenches ripped the old hardware out like they were toys! By the end of the job the batteries were still showing close to full power and I reassembled the toys on the same charge with the new hardware. They have held up great and worked well on many other jobs since.
The only downside to this wrench is that it is a bit bulky and heavy, I see there are now XR versions that are a nicer size, but can't complain about how this unit performs.

Easy to use, even easier to break those rusty boltI bought this a couple weeks ago, in anticipation of breaking some nuts that were subject to 19 years of salt and water...these things were the definition of RUST and were frozen. They were 22mm. No problem for this impact wrench. Save a lot of time and energy.
