I've usually seen this impact wrench tool-only for this price, but Home Depot is throwing in a 3.0-Ah battery and also a charger.

Yeah, but this tool has a brushless motor (which are supposed to be more energy-efficient than their brushed-motor counterparts).

The 3ah isn't bad and this isn't the biggest baddest, that's the 899, which I've changed a couple sets of tires on one 4ah that still shows full charge. I wouldn't worry too much about the size unless you make a living with it, in which case you should be invested in the system probably.

The 894 is mid-range... the best is the 899 with 1200lbs of torque ...

Mid-range, yes... but unless you're breaking loose seized tractor-trailer nuts, 330 ft-lbs of fastening torque is plenty for a vast majority of applications (at least of the DIY variety). Too much torque can stretch bolts and possibly snap them off (although you should really be using a torque wrench to finish fastening your lug nuts).

Also (comparing "apples-to-apples"), the fastening torque of the 899 is 700 ft-lbs (DeWalt is claiming 1200 ft-lbs of max "break-away" torque--which is kind of a "sketchy" metric IMHO).

Good advice. Use this for busting nuts loose. Use a torque wrench for fastening them.

This wrench is actually nice for fastening as well since it has the "Precision wrench" feature, with it it slows down when removing nuts and bolts after they break free so they don't go flying off, and when tightening it spins freely until the nut or bolt reaches a point that it needs impacting power, and it pauses for a second before beating on it so you can stop and switch to a torque wrench to finish.
