    You boys are always wanting to know what you can buy the top of the line 18 V Dewalt impact wrench with 300 ft. lbs. of torque for and I have heard all kinds of high prices on here from 3 to 4 hundred dollars. I bought a brand new one on Ebay with case, battery and charger for $214.00 last night and most of the buy it now prices start at $259.00 with $20.00 shipping. I snipe the bids and slip up on them before they realize what has taken place and my computer is smoking fast that is why I am able to do this.

    And when that impact wrench craps out on you and 8 months and you find out there is no warrentee your going to wish you bought it from somewhere legit.

    I have all Dewalt 18 volt powered hand tools bought brand new off of Ebay and they have the same exact warranty because I have used it on a charger with no questions asked they replaced it free of charge. What would make you think a legitimate Dewalt dealer on Ebay would not be able to sell with full warranty on a new Dewalt or any other item he is a dealer for. You just got a little confused I understand these things happen to a lot of 22 year olds from New Jersey.

    I bought the rigid 18V tool kit that includes one. The 6 peice kit was 600$ cdn. IT only does 115 ft/lbs but thats tons for me since blades only need 70.

    Cheers

    That is enough torque for most things, lug nuts on a truck is 125 to 150 ft. lbs. depending on the size. The battery powered impact wrenches have a lot of uses around my farm, I have always used air impact or electric but I can see the 18 V battery operated ones having more versatility.
