Second lowest all time from what I saw on the camel, fulfilled by Amazon. Got one today. FWIW this is a 150 ft/lb gun that is a 886/887 etc 1/4 impact with a different anvil. Some people may suffice with an adapter from 1/4 to sockets, but I need something SHORT so I got this. You can also convert an old 1/4 impact in some cases, but by the time you mess around with that or splitting kits etc you won't save but a few bucks and more than likely give up a warranty.

150 ft lbs for a 18/20V tool is a tad embarrassing. $106 is not that bad, still...

I wanted to want this because it seems like a good price, but 150ft/lbs is so low. Plus I already have the 887 impact driver that has the same torque. I think the impact driver is one of most people's first tools. It seems like if you fall into that category buying this adapter would serve you better. https://m.lowes.com/pd/dewalt-imp...psQAvD_BwE

You're confusing inch pounds with foot pounds. 150x12=1800 inch/lbs
As op mentioned, this is just an 887 with a different head. Powerful, but not enough for all automotive work

This isn't an impact driver, it's an impact wrench, and while they both work by impact, there is a big difference in purpose between a wrench and a driver. A wrench is used for loosening nuts and bolts found on automotive applications while a driver used for fastening screws and drilling holes in building and construction. Using an adapter will greatly reduce the torque transfer from the tool to the fastener, which will significantly reduce the max torque capability.... and if you're already limited to 150 Ft-lbs, that's probably a no-go.

Second, this isn't meant to be your go-to tool for ripping the crankshaft bolt off of a Honda. It's meant to be a compact, lightweight, low-fatigue tool for lower-torque requirement tasks in tight, hard to reach places.

If I was only going to own 1 impact wrench, a stubby cordless impact would probably not be it. But there is definitely a place in your tool collection if you own multiple. Would it be this DCF890B? Probably not, the Milwaukee M12 Fuel 2554-20 3/8" impact is only 4.8" long vs this 5.5" and is rated to 250 Ft-Lbs with a 5 year warranty. Then again it costs $160+. This is a good deal if you are looking to save money at any cost and you are already invested in the Dewalt 20v battery system, but there are better options if you are willing to spend a little more.

I agree 100% that this is not a bad tool for $100ish, given someone already is invested in the Dewalt 20V system: 150 ft-lbs are not much when you have 12v competitors pulling almost double that, but it should be enough for the vast majority of DIYers that wish to do some light work here and there.

And this is my point, not elaborated in my 1st post: not really a slick deal: you should not pay more for a 150 ft-lbs 20V (i.e. not exactly tiny) wrench. The list price of $199 is ludicrous in 2019 for this. $100 if you don't' care to switch to yet another battery system is fair, but not slick, even if it is the lowest it has ever been.

I don't think I've confused anything: the tool is rated at 150 ft-lbs or foot-pounds. If you are referring to Amazon's page that had 150 in-lbs (or ~12.5 ft-lbs), it is probably a typo, otherwise, it would be TRULY embarrassing.

I don't thin 150 ft-lbs qualifies as powerful in 2019. The tool is serviceable for most jobs. Just not a slick deal - IMHO

Your right as you can just use the adapter but you will lose torque through that. I have both the 887 and this and yes it is more of a convenience but still makes a difference for certain tasks. At least i dont have to worry about snapping adapters anymore. I also use these tools everyday however so for an average diyer prolly not worth it

I have a bunch of Dewalt 20v tools but for automotive I went with the M12 line. Those stubby impact wrenches are just amazing for their size and as a hobbyist cover 90% of my needs. Anything needing more than they can handle I break out the 899.

Just depends on what you need it for. I have both.

I use the smaller one for 1/4" bolts all the time. It is 2lbs.

The larger one sits in the toolbox almost all the time. It is 5.2lbs.

How much can i expect to pay for a battery for one of these? I have not bought that far into any system yet. I do have 2 Bosch 12V drills/drivers, and 2 18V.. but nothing else... I am looking to buy a heavy duty impact wrench for mechanic work (lug nuts, etc), but also looking to buy into a system that works for lawn care and general DIY contracting. Any thoughts?

5Ah new kit batteries on eBay are ~$55 range. Battery life with Dewalt brushless tools is very good.
