DeWalt jumps into the mechanic’s tool market with both feet. We focus this video review specifically on the DeWalt impact socket set. The DWMT74739 23-piece socket set is priced to kill at less than $50, as well as a full lifetime warranty that is set to do the same. In addition to this 23-piece set, DeWalt is loaded with many more multi-piece offerings. We will be sure to get our hands on them as well.

DeWalt Impact Socket Set DWMT74739 Features

In this 23-piece DeWalt DWMT74739 impact socket set, it incudes metric and SAE sizes. Strength and durability come from the heat-treated CR-440 steel, as well as the black oxide coating extends the life and durability. For easy locating, sizes and manufacturer markings are laser etched on each piece in the DeWalt impact socket set. DeWalt uses their DirectTorque technology to aid in securely gripping fasteners, hence not stripping or rounding off bolt heads or nuts. We quickly noticed that the DeWalt impact sockets looked remarkably similar to the Sonic Tools USA sockets we have reviewed in the past. Measuring with a micrometer showed the Sonic socket was 2.5 thousandths (.0025″) larger in diameter, not noticeable with your eye.

Our Thoughts

The big yellow and black machine seems to be moving full steam ahead in the mechanic tool market. If our first impression of these tools are right, DeWalt is offering professional grade tools that are priced for the weekender or entry-level. The big truck outfits may need to be looking over their shoulder, that’s not a bee headed your way. We would like to see the 20 and 23mm sockets added to this kit, but this is no deal-breaker. Time and more tool testing will tell the tale. At this time, we can’t help but give this 23-piece DeWalt Impact Socket Set the thumbs up, with a price below $50 and a full lifetime warranty.
