    Dewalt DW059 Impact Wrench

  1. Does anyone happen to know what the watts rating of the DCB107??? The 12v to 110v convertor I was looking at is rated to output 150 watts... Will that be enough to power the 110v DCB107 charger?
  2. Instead of buying a household stepdown transformer I decided to get a power inverter for the car which is 12V to 110V... I figured if we can do the same for our 230-240v power in NZ to run house hold devices in the car then it's really no different doing it for a USA 110v device... I'll use the tool for work on the car 95% of the time so it's no hassle at all the charge it in the car.... Works out much cheaper doing this way too!
  3. I purchased a Dewalt DCF610 & battery on Ebay for a quite reasonable price... It comes with a DCB107 charger... I purchased from a seller in the USA so I am wondering if the charger will work in New Zealand with the use of a simple plug converter / adaptor... We have 230v power in New Zealand. Does anyone know if the USA DCB107 chargers are multi voltage for input??? If they are not then a simple adaptor will not work either?? Is the only way to get it to work via an expensive step down transformer or something of the sort??? The deal was pretty good for just the battery and tool so I'm happy either way but it would be nice to be able to use the charger instead of buying a new one!
  4. Yes obviously that would be a great idea if the tool was worth a lot... I suspect by the time they charge me a fee just to inspect the tool that alone makes it unviable from a financial perspective.... I suppose I could pay them to diagnose the problem then take it back and replace the part myself with parts sourced online which will no doubt be cheaper than any Dewalt service centre... I'm quite capable of replacing the motor, trigger or gear/impact housing... I just need to workout which component needs replacing!
  5. I seem to be having a little trouble with my Dewalt DW057 impact wrench.... I'm not sure if it's one big issue or a couple of seperate issues... It's not getting anywhere near the torque output it should....... I haven't checked what it is outputting but I know for certain it is much less than 75ft/lbs for tightening wheel nuts on my car... When I use it it quite often will stop dead and not start again unless I rotate the 1/2 inch drive one way or the other... When I do this it will work again with a trigger press.... Sometimes when I press the trigger nothing happens requiring the same rotation of the driver as above... Given the value of the tool I'm a little reluctant to pay to have it repaired... Is there any way I can test the components to determine where the problem lies... I figure it can only be the trigger, motor, or gear/impact assembly... Or can any knowledgeable person tell me what this sort of problem is likely to be... I also have the DW056 & DW059 so I really would like to get this member of the family operational again! Any help much appreciated...
