Dewalt!
« on: April 06, 2022, 07:38:46 PM »
Rumor has it finally dewalt has a new DCF900 high torque 20v impact coming out soon, i cant wait to hit buy it now on 2 new ones regardless of cost.   Both my DCF899's (700fwd/1200rev ft lb rating) are showing wear and the 1,2 torque limit settings have failed- its full beans on any setting.

im also ready for more forward torque as some of the JK and JL crush sleeves take monster effort to get started.

If it's anything like the massive gains they're pulling with their yet to be released mid-torque, it'll be big. I'm team red and won't be switching because of batteries (and honestly, my M12 Stubby does 90% of what I need at work), but it does have me supper excited to see what TTI (Parent company of Milwaukee) responds with.

oh, i was mistaken- Henrietta Home Depot has a couple of both versions in stock.  1/2" or 3/8" version available for 200$ bare tool.

I wasted an hour at Victor home depot Monday this week. web site said 2 in stock, internal inventory said 3 in stock. 30m looking myself and then waiting for clown with key to show up after paging, 30 minutes digging and none found.

I'm going to stop in to see Jake V and see if he has any or can order. Fuck big box stores...

I got a pair of the new "powerstack" batteries last week in ratchet anticipation. they are rated at 1.7ah, are the thickness of the 2ah but narrower and lighter. they are lasting much longer than the 2ah in practice, and they are supposed to be "better" overall. amazon warehouse at $129 for the pair, dates on them are May of this year. still haven't gotten the tool lol.
I lost a 2ah somewhere, so I've got 1ea 2ah & 4ah, and a pair each 6ah and powerstack.

new 20v ratchet kicks ass, saved me 30min today with hand tools being shorter and lower profile than my Kobalt stuff. 

rips through 1/2" top locks like nothing.  Love it.

One of the powerstack batteries went bad. It would self discharge in 24-48 hours whether on a tool or not.

I bought on Amazon. They simply refunded purchase price since bad lithium batteries can’t be shipped.

So buy pairs of batteries, I guess. Slim chance you could end up with one free? As long as one goes bad inside a month.

Still didn’t get over to see Jake to see if they have the tool in stock.

So they're sticking with the more power same size formula. I can't wait till Torque Test Channel gets their hands on it. Fingers crossed it's as good as their new mid torque.
