Replacing an intake manifold and needed a torque wrench, HD and Lowes way too high, this one worked like a champ. Additionally I had read using extensions altered the torque factor, I tried on one bolt marking the head and the bolt, I used a 4 and 6 inch extension and also tried the flex extension , there was no difference in torque values from 10 to 22 foot pounds, the range I was using.

My son suggested we buy one of these if I saw a bargain someday. Well last Ebay bucks entered use or lose time so I popped for one. I am really glad I did because no more chances of getting my wrist broken with a standard right angle drill, plenty of power and it just sails through a 4 5/8 hole for putting in a hole for a toilet and related 4 inch pipe. These new brush less motorized tools are a big advancement from my perspective

Along the Dewalt 20 V line is this light that is very bright at 7000 lumens that is dimmable to 500 lumens. I think it would be great on a camping trip as well as providing job site lighting. It will accept 120V corded power as well as 20V and 69V batteries. It has a built in charger and, if you get a kit, comes with a fan cooled quick charger and a 6 amp hour 60V Max battery. The prices are all over the spectrum on this so if interested look around. I purchased two of the kits around Christmas for 249.99 shipped too the door. Someone has a kit on Ebay right now for 289.95 while Acme tools want's 499.99 for one-go figure. We use ours a lot and way more than expected. Today for example I used one to light up a wall where I was putting a second coat of white paint on so as to view the areas where I missed as I went along and that fast charger really works well.
(I have no connection to Dewalt other than buying their tools)
