I was chatting with Josh-man about tools and tool boxed this evening and the subject of cordless impacts came up. I want to replace my so-so Ryobi impact with something with much more torque. What do you have to say?
I actually have a few. The 1/2" is only for lug nuts for me. At this point anyway.Looks good. My only comment is why 1/2? Unless you take wheels on and off all day, what are you really doing with it that requires the extra size and weight? I find the 3/8's can fit in many places that the 1/2 can't, and most things don't require that much torque. My 3/8 Milwaukee is powerful enough to break nearly any nut or bolt on these trucks as it goes up to 210ft lb. A few of my mechanics friends says the same thing, they use their 1/2 but for the most part their daily driver is the 3/8. I would be scared to use a 1/2 gun on 10mm bolts. Not that their is anything wrong with a 1/2" gun, but I feel that a 3/8 will see a lot more use.
