The rigid would be a good tool but not sure how the battery ones compare to a pneumatic.

Me neither Mike.  But this thing has up to 450ft lbs of torque which has gotta be enough, no?

Probably. I'm planning to get one someday soon so let me know how you like it.

Will do.  The promo on at Home Depot (until end of Oct) buys you the impact for $180, and you get a battery and charger with it thrown in (worth $150).  I'll let you know how it goes.

Kool, I have a Makita Li Ion drill with 2 5.0 AH batteries so I'll likely get an impact that uses the same packs but that will depend on if I can get one that cheap.

The only thing I ever use an impact driver (the air or motorized kind) for is installing car wheels.  The manual ones I posted do well for loosening and tightening.  Plus, most motorcycle stuff has torque numbers, so you're not using an impact driver for much.

100% impact is for loosening only. Unless steel wheels on a car then just giv er

Yeah I totally hear you guys.  I won't be using the thing for tightening stuff up, just for breaking loose bolts and the like.  There have been a few occasions where a bolt has been my undoing, however -



- no longer.  This thing is the absolute dogs bollocks, got the clutch nut off without blinking.  Winter tire changes are going to be a walk in the park with this thing, and with 450ft lbs of torque I can't imagine many situations where I'd need more.  Unless that build-an-Eiffel-tower itch needs scratching.

I've got a Chicago Pneumatic impact wrench running on continuous 105psi and a Milwaukee battery powered impact wrench and the Milwaukee shits on the CP, so much so that I haven't used the air one in a couple of years.
