Just got the Ridgid impact gun for christmas. Haven't tried it yet on lug nuts, but did use it on the Vespa the other day and it didn't break a sweat.

would any of these battery impact wrenches take off the lugs on my 2500 that i torque to 140 lbs every time i swap tires or rotate them. right now i have to use a breaker bar first. i know my compressor is small and doesnt put out the volume . so rather than upgrade the compressor which is fine for everything else i need it for i was looking at the milwaukkee 2763-22. any thoughts?

This is the only one we will use. We have 7 of these in our shop and they will do the job for sure.

1/2 Milwaukee M18 Fuel works great on my lugs, but I only torque them to 110 ish.

You need 2 batteries and a charger. Once you buy that, the individual tools are relatively cheap to add, so might as well accumulate a bunch over time. Pick one up every 3 or 4 months and you'll have a full set in no time.

IMO the major brands are close enough in performance. Dewalt, Rigid, Makita, Milwaukee, Ryobi, Hitachi, Porter, Craftsman ... pick a platform with a good selection and stick with it. The main difference between the pro grade and consumer lines is durability; Dewalt and Rigid are built to be used hard all day every day. But unless you make a living at a trade, that's probably not you. I've got Ryobi, which is supposed to be cheap, but I've been abusing some of my tools for 15 years and they are still going strong.

Obviously carry a lug wrench and breaker bar as backup. I always finish torque with a torque wrench.

Ryobi is good to for the price. They are made by Old Milwaukee,so is Rigid.
I've actually been looking at swapping all of my Cordless tools out for the Ryobi One+ series.... one battery for 80+ tools seems like a good thing for me. I have a circular saw, drill, impact, smaller drill, sawzall, inflator and an LED light.... every frickin one of them takes a different battery and it seems the tool I go to use never has a charged battery.

Direct Tools is running a sale this weekend, 25% off everything.... I might have to finally pull the trigger hmm...

My good buddy has one, and we were a little disappointed because it wouldn't take off F250 lugs or brake caliper bolts, which is mainly what we wanted it for. I don't know what she's advertised for, but 160 ft/lb was too much for it. Have you used it for anything heavier yet?

I haven't, but your post will have me trying some lug nuts this weekend.

The combo kits are a good buy if you are starting from scratch, and if you price it out separately the battery and charger are free or close to it. Here's a good starter kit with drill, circular saw, sawzall, worklight, battery and charger for $199.

I just picked up a ryobi hammer drill last night. Drill alone was $79, while kit with 2 Lithium batteries and charger was $99. 2 batteries are usually $99 so it was a no brainer.

Best part of having all the same series is you can stock up on batteries when they have a sale. I have 5 batteries now, 3 compact and 2 extra capacity, all new.

Get the six-pack charger P135. It's great for keeping the batteries charged. Great investment.

I've been using the Ryobi 1/2" with the big batteries for over two years now. Can use it all day assembling trailers and have never fully discharged a battery. In the winter when not getting used, the battery stays charged for months.

Make sure your threads are clean and greased and you should be good to go.

The Snap On is insanely nice, but at the price, not so much.

I picked up this kit this past weekend from direct tools when they did the 25% off. I think it ended up being $150 or so.
