JimsJeep We use the cordless impacts a lot a work and have been using the DeWalts for a few years (they worked great) but we have just switched over to Hilti and they are superior to all. I'm not knocking Snap On but they are pricing themselves based on their name and it's just not a superior product.

Boston_Bruins30 Thanks everyone for the input. I'm gonna do some more looking around. Definitely getting one with a lithium battery. My buddies snap on with lithium battery works awesome. Used it all day to swap my axles and part of the second day before it died. Full power right to the end.

theCollector I have the dewalt 1/2 impact and love it.

Irongrave I run the mikita 18V 1/2 impact and love it. Its got a good amount of power for a battery tool and I abuse the hell out of it. I used to be in the building trades so the rest of my tools are all mikita so I went that route for the impact. I have used the IR cordless stuff and they are a nice tool. My dad runs Milwaukee tools and his impact is more abused then mine on almost a daily basis (building and property maintenance for a very large estate) He's tried some of the newer dewalt stuff and the relibilty just isn't there anymore compared to the mikita or Milwaukee tools.

erik8312 I use my ingersoll rand w150 3/8 cordless impact for everything. It takes off lug nuts, motor mounts, suspension parts, etc. I use it daily at the shop. Never had a probelm, holds a good charge, and battery fits other ingersoll rand cordless tools (drill, ratchet, and same charger). I recommend it. Good price and reliable. You can find them on ebay or ingersoll rand factory outlet website.

2003x I have the Snap-On CT6850. I also have a Craftsman 33 Gallon Compressor with several air tools. The Snap On Impact blows the air tools out of the water, just simply no comparison. It has excellent reviews online. The air tools are good for smaller projects. I have never used another electric impact, so I can't compare. But with the snap on I have never had trouble getting any bolts off.

Jerry Bransford Milwaukee makes a good 1/2" impact wrench too. Just make sure whatever you buy comes with lithium ion batteries. NiMH and NiCad batteries are not good choices.

gmabry75 Makita tools are great. Work in a heavy truck dealership shop and there are half a dozen guys that use 3/8 makita impacts for "light" work. Have had makita tools for 18 years and only problem I've ever had were the 14.4 nimh batteries. Makita tools are not cheap, but you do get what you pay for.

Mckiven I do a lot of wood working and use a makita lxt 1/4 impact. Great battery life, doesn't over heat and quick recharge. I can only assume the 1/2 impact by makita is just as good. Make sure you get the lxt series.

coolbreeze Check item #67845 at Harbor Freight. 1/2", 18volt cordless impact $99.99 w/coupon. 1/2", 18volt NiCd and charger included.

lindel I don't have a cordless, but do have an electric that I bought at Tractor Supply for about $70. It's done me proud for almost 10 years now.

Big Cole I used a Ridgid cordless impact wrench during my last round of upgrades. Worked great and was inexpensive.
10-07-2012 08:48 AM
Full Spool For $120 you can get an Ingersoll Rand 1/2" air impact, $400 you can get a Power tank CO2 tank, and have the best of both worlds.

Joshpeb2 I wish you would have posted this sooner. I just sold my other Snap on cordless impact a few weeks ago. I had 2 of them and really only needed one so I sold the spare cheap just to get rid of it.

JeepWrangler4x4 DeWalt ones are pretty decent we use them at work all the time. not sure on the prices tho.

dabolt55 I did not even think about using my cordless impact driver to use on jeep. It is always for home improvements....Thanks.

cordless impact wrenches

Ive been looking into buying a 1/2 in cordless impact wrench with lithium battery. I really want a snap on ct7850 but it just doesnt make sense for me to spend $700. And if I cant get my hands on a good used one I want to look into other options. I heard the mikita was good and half the price. Anyone have any experience with this or any other brands? Thanks
