The DCF896 Mid-Range Impact Wrench is based off of the latest edition to the DEWALT® impact wrench family, the DCF894. Integrated Bluetooth® technology pairs this tool with the free Tool Connect™ mobile app and online inventory manager portal, allowing users to track, manage and customize the tool settings. Through the app, users are able to program three customized modes based on individual needs and have control over forward and reverse speed to account for different fastener sizes and types, LED brightness and delay as well as Precision Wrench™ and the all new exclusive Precision Tap™ modes. Within Precision Wrench™, users can program the tool to automatically shut off after impacting for a set amount of time, useful for those performing repeatable applications and helps with tightening consistancy by removing variability in impact time. Precision Tap™ mode is designed to make tapping threads faster and easier by having the tool automatically alternate between forward and reverse, keeping rotations consistant and eliminating the need to manually change the tool’s direction. Use this tool along with other Tool Connect™ offerings for a complete management solution.

Tons of torque, small and lightweightThis thing has tons of torque for how small it is. I just wish I had got a bigger battery for it, I just got the 1.5ah battery. Will definitely be investing in a higher capacity battery. The tool connect app is pretty cool, and is big part of the reason I bought this one as my last cordless impact was stolen. Now if this one is stolen I can track it and it also won’t work if it’s not in Bluetooth range of my phone. But this also brings me to my biggest complaint about the tool, just because my phone is in my pocket, so obviously within Bluetooth range, the tool is always disabled when I first go to use it, I have to pull my phone out, open the app, and wait for it to connect before the tool will do anything. And sometimes it will say “updating device” which is what it says when it’s enabling it, but it won’t enable, and it will sit here and do this 3 or 4 times before actually enabling the tool. One time I even had to force close the app on my phone, reopen, and try again. Might sound like a minor annoyance, and it wasn’t that big of a deal to me at first, it was worth the peace of mind of knowing my toold wouldn’t be stolen or at least wouldn’t work if stolen, but after using it for a while, now, and having to do this EVERY single time, it does get pretty annoying.
Specs are offI bought this to remove Honda 19mm crank bolt for timming belt replacement, which are usually on at 250ft or less, i could not for the love of god not come off. I also used a weighted socket and no luck, after about 2 5.0amp battery later it decides to move and finally come off, i returned it and got the 1200ft version with a battery and charger same price
