Cordless impact tool

Post by Rodeoflyer » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:22 pm

I plan to buy a cordless impact and heard the ingersoll is top notch.

Suggestions on different models or thoughts?

That looks like a beast! I'm using a Milwaukee 1/2" that's worked great for me. That ingersoll looks like it outspecs it though. Mine has removed lug nuts from passenger buses and 18 wheelers

My buddy has a hookup with Milwaukie and gets their battery tools to test. He says they're a huge leap up from anything else he's tried and loves those tools to death. That being said I doubt he has tried IR tools, and IR is known as a top notch company.

Been using Makita 18v lithium for about 12 years now. Love em. Have their 1/2" impact for busting truck nuts. No issues. The Milwaukee stuff is pretty decent too. Batteries don't seem to last as long and their 1/4" impact drivers have a lot to be desired but some of their heavy stuff is solid

I have this one and use it all the time, love it. Stole it from Amazon for cheap with the battery and charger included, one of the reviews said it had the battery but the description said tool only, I took the chance and bingo!

I have the HDepot Ridgid 18v tools. 1/2" impact was only $110. It removes the lugnuts on the Power Wagon, so I am happy. The IRand & the Milwalkee are the most powerful I think (1100 for the Milwalkee-1300 ft lbs for the IRand).
In WNY State. 2008 Red QC PW G56. No lift yet, stock size tires. It pulls an 18' 2016 Starcraft AR One Extreme, 3500 lbs.

G-56 Gear ratios: 1st) 6.29:1 2nd) 3.48:1 3rd) 2.10:1 4th) 1.38:1 5th) 1.0:1 6th) 0.79:1 Rev 6.29:1 --- = 78.01613:1 Crawl Ratio

I ended up purchasing the Ingersoll W7150-K1. I can't afford the Hilti stuff :-) and the Ingersoll was my bang for the buck decision. I appreciate all the suggestion and info!

Now I begin my search for a cordless ratchet...I may just stick with Ingersoll and get the 3150.

I have several Makita tools - drills, grinder, saw, recipro. I haven't had any problems with their stuff but the for the same specs Ingersoll is advertised lighter weight, 20V and seems to be comparable durability. I guess I'll find out...

Only a suggestion. I use my makita tools every single day. I carry the impact on my belt next to the hammer. And I give the skillsaw and recip saw quite a workout. Not to mention the oopsies when something goes sliding off a roof. They charge fast and last forever

Milwaukee has the best torque and seams to last the longest. Ive had a few different ones and currently use there 3/8" impact. Holds up to everything I throw at it. Im a diesel mechanic by trade and work in very harsh environments close to Alaska.

Wow - only 3/8" impact - I would have expected at least a 1/2" impact for durability...

3/8" is just as powerful but more versatile as you can get into tighter spots

if you've got cordless electric tools already, I'd go with that same brand so you can use the same battery. Obviously if your stuff is old or something, then get the "new" stuff or pick another brand.

I had all dewalt stuff before, so it made sense to get the 1/2 impact. It has zero issues loosening the lugs, and I've used it for all sorts of tough-to-remove bolts now. Makes pulling wheels way easier. Make sure you're not using an impact to install the lugs though. http://amzn.to/2rE8tAd

I'd be interested in the 3/8 impact too, but I've got a 1/4 one already and figured I'd step it up a bit with the 1/2. I've been happy so far.

I have sent a ton of Milwaukee tools for warranty. They tried to deny warranty on a sawzall. They claimed it was abused. Not joking. I politely told them to eat dirt if they believe a tool mad for destruction burns out because of abuse. It's a 7-1 ratio on Milwaukee tools being sent back for warranty over makita. Batteries though are 1-1. Both have good batteries. And I've found it's back and forth on which tools are more powerful. I have many sets of both brands that get worked daily. But I find makita more durable and longer lasting overall. Been using them both since the 18v lithium kits came out. I have quite a few makita tools bought in 2006 still going hard on the job site.
