Cordless impact gun?

So I'm in the market for a cordless impact gun. I have milwaukee m18 tools and was thinking about one of their guns. I wont use it a ton but want one that will work. I was looking at the regular "1/2 high torque they call it on amazon for $122. Seemed like a decent deal but not sure if I should spend a little more on a better one. They claim 450 foot pounds but not sure I believe it. I have the drills, skill saw, and love the grinder. So nice to be able to be cordless.

M18 i got is badass. Not the new 1,400 ft lbs, 1,100 I believe. And its a fuckin monster. Beats the shit outta pneumatic that I used to use

Gotta spend for a bigger battery tho if u want to see full potential. Not the biggest, but i got a couple 9.0 batteries. My cordless m18 tool collection getting a bit extensive and ridiculous . Best cordless tools hands down

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Yeah I have gone through many cordless sets and these m18 are realy nice. My boss has the makita 18volt stuff and my milwaukee blows it away with power. I haven't used a regular skill saw in forever. So nice not having a cord or dragging around a hose. I have piles of the old makita 14.4 stuff I need to take to the dump.

Re: Cordless impact gun?

I have the m18, too. Two of them. I used them everyday, all day, assembling bikes and grills and shit at walmarts, before I got stuck in virus-limbo.

First one I had came from a big batch that had switch problems. The useless lights would stay on and kill your battery faster, but I used it for a year before I took it to Milwaukee and they replaced it free.

They're awesome, lightweight, and will do most bike and moped jobs. Reverse isn't as strong as forward, but it's pulled every V1 flywheel and clutch nut off I've had. Makes life way easier to get those off and on.

Also, to compare, I had a dewalt and an old makita 24v, too. The milwaukee seemed more powerful than both of them. (edited)

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Havent tried the "FUEL" series but the standard m18 torque driver is all ya need.

That is the one for $122 on amazon. I would love the fuel but cant justify spending 300 on one. I mad get the fuel mid they call it. Its smaller and lighter

Re: Cordless impact gun?

yeah, thats the one

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Just found a remanufactured one on acme tools for $149 and got it.

Re: Cordless impact gun?

I have the 3/8 fuel, whatever the most badass 3/8 one they have... Like 180 bare tool I think it was? It's awesome and I love it. My m18 impact driver 1/4 hex I got in 2012 and have beat the shit it of it and it won't die.

Also got the fuel saw zall and a couple drills. And the weed whacker. It's all been awesome. My neighbor has the chainsaw and even that is damn good.

I almost got the 3/8 but my regular hex drive impact with a socket adapter can do alot for bikes and smaller things. We will see. When I get my 1/2 driver I may decide to get the 3/8 also. I am a tool junkie.

Ive been beating on a Ridgid 18v 1/4 impact for years now, and it never disappoints. I discovered quickly that thate 4.0amp battery is alot better than the stock 1.5amp batteries it came with. I went Ridgid because of their lifetime warranty... nowadays I would probably go Ryobi 18v due to the amount of accessories they offer and the cheaper prices. My father has the Ryobi set and they seem pretty decent. Before you hate, just remember that Ryobi, Mikata, Dewalt, Ridgid, Hercules, Chicago Electric, Bauer, and even Milwaukee are all built in china. So we are all trying to figure out which of the forced china labor drills are better than the other!!!

FYI i use the Ridgid 18v circular saw, drills, and saw-zall. All do a good job however recently my brushless 18v ridgid drill recently had the chuck crap out. I purchased that refurbished so maybe that had something to do with it.

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Remanufactured Porter Cable 20v torque driver / impact combo, charger 2 batteries

from NEWEGG 5-6 yrs ago, 100bucks . Solid as a rock ! same 2 batteries still going now

metal stud framing all day,, 20g, 18g,even 16g with the impact

I shove the 20v PC lithium battery into the ryobi 18v 6" skillsaw ,, and it sings now,

JUST LINE UP THE PINS +/- . velcro strap it on*

I use the adjustable torque driver on lite duty stuff (MOPEDS),, and as a drill,

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Worth noting is the fact that an impact guns torque rating is in reverse (counterclockwise). Forward direction will be less.

Nice! We need some pics upon arrival.

Re: Cordless impact gun?

dude yea that miluakee rules. I have a decent enough ryobi that'll do moped stuff and light duty, but if something's really needing the action I borrow my buddy's fuel

Something else worth noting... If a gun fails to remove said fastener, try a socket slightly larger to help rattle it loose. It works sometimes but not always.

I'm a tool addict. I have 2 140 lincoln mug welder. One with flux and one with gas because I'm lazy and hate switching over the machines. Also have a small inverter mig, a small inverter stick/tig and an engine drive stick. Way to much but I can't help myself if I find a deal.

Thats close to the dumbest advice i ever saw....a loose socket will round off shoulders on the bolt or nut or some times bust the socket....wow intelligence at it's finest

Ya, if you're dumb enough to use a 12 point socket instead of a 6 point moron!

Re: Cordless impact gun?

A loose 6 point is just as bad as a 12 point moron.....you actually.had me fooled into thinking you might.have some mechanical knowledge....i see you are one of those.top notch mechanics that comes in bragging about all his mechanical knowledge carrying a plastic tackle box with a few made in taiwan open end wrenches,a cheapo pair.of plyers,a flat head screw driver and an off brand crescent wrench ready to take it all on...you really are a piece of work to tell somebody to use a larger socket ...with what i see of your knowledge i wouldn't want you to even sweep the floor in any of my shops...the rattle is done.by the impact.inside ..a loose socket.....hahahaaaa (edited)

Re: Cordless impact gun?

Evil just to give you an insite....the impact hammer inside makes the rattle without a loose socket...thats what impacts do.....hahaha loose socket lolololl. Hahahaaa

Again, until you've tried it, its outside your realm of thought flat earther. A loose six point socket will not ruin a a six point fastener. Besides the fucking fastener is of no use if you cant get it loose moron. Next... (edited)

The more you try to convince yourself you're right the dumber you get....when you hammer on the corner of a nut or bolt with a loose socket it is going to round the corners..... loose socket hahahaha lololololollllllllll by the way ....once you round the corners it is that much more hard to get loose...dumbass (edited)

Re: Cordless impact gun?

I like how you guys just bicker back and forth like children. You guys could turn a cute and snuggly kitten thread into "your dumb", "no, your dumb", "my kitten is softer", "no my kitten is softer". Fuck give it up. This is getting old.

I tried to leave it and let things go but he just had to keep pushing....sorry but the shit stirrer just had to keep stiring so i decided to stir back...i really don't mean to piss any of you off but now when he decides to back off and let it end i will be glad to. Again not my intention to offend anybody

You have no clue because you've never tried it. It never occurred to you to think outside the box. You are speaking on your opinion AGAIN. I stated what I have learned from experience. Its worked more than once.

Again, the next time an impact fails to remove a stubborn bolt, grab the next size larger socket (6 point). That would be 1/16 or 1mm larger. No it will not round the head off. If it does then you shouldn't of been using an impact anyway. Otherwise just get cut it off.
