DeWALT DCF889HM2 Impact Wrench – More Power

The lackluster DeWALT DCF889 just got an upgrade with 100 more ft. lbs. of torque.  The DCF889HM2 is now available at The Home Depot.  DeWALT didn’t stop there they also increased the IPM to 2300 and the RPMs to 1500.  Still not industry leading power but this tool is good for most jobs including driving lags. Not too much is know yet about this tool but we will keep you posted.   Check out this Russian using...

Mac 12V 3/8″ Impact Wrench – BWP038

As you know, we recently reviewed Mac’s new 20V 1/2″ BWP050. It was a great performer and really surpassed my expectations. Aside from the placement of the LED light, it really didn’t have any downside. I loved the gun and intended to use it on our race trailer, but I quickly realized it was simply too much gun for an ATV application. Aside from the size, the level of power the BWP050 offers could easily damage the aluminum covers and housings. I really like the platform and seeing how we’re using the Mac 12V ratchet (reviewed HERE), I really...

Mac 20V Impact Wrench – BWP050

If you’re a regular TIA reader, it’s not breaking news that Mac recently revamped their cordless line with a pretty impressive lineup powered by Dewalt’s proven 20V Max platform. You may have even read my recent review of the 12V Ractchet from said lineup. If you’ve come here from Google you might also be aware that TIA is currently the only tool blog on which you’ll find reviews of Mac’s new cordless lineup. That’s important right? I mean, almost 6,000 people have summited Mt. Everest, but Sir Edmund Hillary is probably the only one you can name.   Features...

Bosch has been bringing their A game to the table with their new line up of Brushless tools.  This time they introduced the IWBH182-01L which is a 1/2″ Pin Detent Impact Wrench.  Is it the strongest on the market?  No.  Is it the only one with 3 speed?  No.  But this is the only one on the market that has the whole package.  While this tool does give up torque, it doesn’t lack on speed.  So if 1,650 in-lbs of torque is going to get you through the day, then this is the tool to have.

Bosch IDH182 18V EC Brushless Socket Ready Impact – Tools in Action Pro

If you are reading this post you are in for a real treat.  This is our first installment of Tools in Action Pro.  While we visit a lot of job sites, we rarely ever document our encounters with the pro.  Mainly because of the time factor involved in trying to align schedules and the amount of time we have to spend on each video.  Our normal videos take hours of time between creating and editing the videos.  Being on site with a contractor is much more involved because there are so many variables out of our control, plus all the...

Ingersoll Rand W7150 1/2 In. 20 V High-Torque Impact Wrench – King of the Nut Busters

A few years back at SEMA we got our first glimpse of the new IQ20 cordless line and the W7150 from Ingersoll Rand.  While we didn’t get to test it, we did get to touch and feel it.  It stood out as a quality tool from its polished aluminum casing to its stout overall feel.  I can sum up the W7150 with one word “Power”.  It easily has the power of most pneumatics and is the most powerful cordless impact ever tested here at TIA. When you first open the case of the W7150 you notice how nice everything...

How nice would it be to have lots of power and quality in the palm of your hands and a tool that is lightweight?   Well that is exactly what Milwaukee is doing with their M12 Fuel line.  Unless you have been hiding in a cave, you are probably familiar with the new M12 Fuel line, which incorporated brushless motors.  While brushless technology isn’t new, the application of a small tool with lots of power is new in the M12 line.  As with the Milwaukee M12 Impact driver, this tool is a new addition to the ever growing M12...
