Impact driver for crankshaft pulley bolt

If anyone is considering a diy cam belt change and worried about the crankshaft pulley bolt - I can recommend the DeWalt DCF899HN impact driver. Started my belt change last weekend and it had no trouble at all in removing the bolt - making it the easiest part of the job by far! Its quite a heavy tool, but good spec - 3 setting 135/400/950Nm which seems a lot higher than others. I have changed the water pump (had to file off one edge to fit), tensioner and idler pulley, just got to finish getting the cam covers, other belts and engine mount back on and get to those pesky alternator bolts.
