Jake was saying they have a smaller frame 1/4” impact that’s the same power as the ones we’ve been using. Doubt I’d upgrade to it but be nice for the next one. I’d take a smaller diameter over a shorter housing on the 1/4” drive personally. My most used power tool by far.

They’re coming out with a bigger chainsaw in the 60v too, and now have a 15ah 60v battery too. Thing is huge. I think he said the saw is supposed

Takes some getting used to for final torque feel without switching to another handheld 3/8 drive but I’m loving this tool. It’s strong!

two days in the shop, this new 900 rocks.  acts like my 899 on level 2.  its a beast. 


ACME tools sent me a 10% coupon for another order, was all excited to grab some more, but them noticed it expired the day my first order was delivered.  little shady!

My damn quarter drive impact just died. DCF887

The power level switch was acting up earlier today, all settings were 1. And now it’s just dead.

I think it’s well past warranty if I could even figure out when I bought it. I’ll open it up next week and hope for an easy bad wire on that switch or the trigger.

No light coming on either. Same on a couple good batteries. A little rough treatment did nothing.

couple of my first 20v real dewalt batteries are finally biting the dust.  been shopping around for options.  lowes right now has buy two power max for 199 get a free tool (no ah rating on package?!)  or they have their standard 20v battery 3pack of an 8ah, 4ah, 2ah for 199 which seems like a good deal for total power. 

ended up grabbing 6 knock offs (6ah) on amazon for 21$ a piece.  lol   i have had a few of them and they are 80% of the dewalts in power and rating i believe.  i just got two new 5ah real dewalts with my new 900 impacts so when doing crush sleeves i just use those.  the knock offs should be fine for other tooling. 

review to follow when they show up
