    I was looking at that one because I have the C3 drill aswell........along with charger and batteries. The 200ft lbs is what has kept me from buying it. I don't think it will be enough to loosen those stubborn nuts and bolts.

    I was dissapointed in this one http://www.dewalt.com/tools/cordless-impact-driverswrenches-high-torque-wrenches-dw059k-2.aspx and it's 300ft lbs. Wouldn't even loosen the axle nut on the truck.

    I have almost the exact tools in my tool bag. Only major difference is

    - Pry Bar
    - Torque Wrenches
    - a punch and chisel set
    - Screw drivers
    - dikes and pliers
    - bailing wire

    I usually don't carry my torque wrench with me.............Something about carrying around a $350 Matco 0-250lb torque wrench around with me just bugs me.

    Whats wrong with a corded impact? Ill have to try mine to see if it draws to much power, but I have broken everything from BJ's, to CV nuts free with it. It's also much cheaper then a cordless. I have run my DeWalt 12" compound miter saw on my truck and while it goes very slow it does work.....until the brake engages and pops the fuse.

    Ill try it on the press I rented by compacting a 2x4 and then I can check it with my torque wrench to see how much it can handle.

    Say what? A 15 amp saw off the inverter in the bed of the truck?
     
  19. Oswego

    Yup. 15amp. Like I said it runs slow and when you take your finger off the trigger the electric brake trips it but it does work. I'm sure it's not the smartest or safest method, but in a pinch you can do it.

    damn.. sounds like I need to re-evaluate my tools and supplies. I only have a small craftsman socket set with a couple screw drivers and then a bunch of recovery gear.

    Skateboards and extra crap are taking up wayyy too much space in the tool box.
