I bought the Ingersoll Rand W7150 last year. Greatest thing I've bought and same power as yours. Be really careful as it will break bolts if you're not careful! If you think you want that last pull of the trigger, refrain...

Thanks guys. Over the years I've become a Milwaukee tools fan boy. I don't wrench much but this seems worthy of hauling around on the trail. Good tip on not breaking the bolts.

impact driver with socket adapter

Does anyone have some comparison data between using a dedicated impact wrench versus using an impact driver with socket adapters?

I already have the impact driver, and it seems pretty inexpensive to get a couple of socket adapters versus buying an impact. Especially for just the occasional use that would be my case.

Does anyone do that? I don't know how often I would use the impact wrench.

Designated impact wrench will put to shame your impact driver. If You can't justify the price of a new one then look into something used off of craigslist and invest in a good battery. If you have a good air compressor harbor freight earthquake impact wrench for about 80 bucks with coupons is a beast!

Why suggestion is if you're going to buy a battery operated one like the Milwaukee or the Dewalt then stick with that style for drill and impact driver etc. so the batteries are interchangeable.

Any time you add an extension you reduce the effective torque of the impact as well.

No data, just real time usage experience. There's no comparison. All my cordless are Makita 18V LXT. Most recent was the high torque impact wrench. You're not breaking lugs free with and impact driver. The impact wrench laughs at lugs.

But I agree with the above. Stick with one line of cordless tools. I went with the Makita impact wrench since all my others were Makita for housework and woodworking.

I treat myself all the time to being single. And the Jeep has been my new project. It's fun to buy stuff. Fortunate to have the money to do so.

Ha! Reminds me of when I bought my Jeep. My wife said "If you buy that I will leave you." She was a good woman, but the Jeep is awesome. LOL

I've been eyeing battery powered rattle guns - sure would be great for changing wheels/tires. A friend had Dewalt's version and loves it. I have some Milwaukee stuff and it has been great. Decisions, decisions.

After 24 years of marriage ended, I bought an 2013 Rubicon - first pic. After a year of being single - second pic.

thanks for the info. I have a couple of milwaukee tools. it isn't necessarily the money, but i used my impact driver quite a bit to build my kids a playhouse and not much since then. just don't want another tool languishing in the garage.

Mine is a luxury and will be seldom used, but who cares? When I do use it I'll be a happy camper. That's all that matters to me anymore.

Very nice!

I have lots of tools I don't use that often. When I need that certain tool it's right there and there is no substitute.

I carry mine in my tow rig when I'm not Jeeping. It makes short work changing tires. I've pulled over to help guys towing 5ers that got a flat, it makes short work of changing a tire on the side of the road. The dewalt has 2 different size batteries and they have a charge indicator.

Yep, and I happen to enjoy helping other folks (especially jeepers) out when they need it. My winch has been used almost exclusively to tug other jeeps rather than my own.

Married for 28 years and been single for the last 25 (approx.) years. Treating myself to a new wife next month. Who would think that I would be getting married again at 70+

LMAO -- this thread is GREAT!!! Last time I had a NEW car was when I was 18...... married for 22 years and got one hand-me-down after another.... I gotta say DIVORCE is GREAT! New GF (HOT!!!), new toys (guns, golfcart, motorcycle, jetskis) and most importantly a NEW JEEP! (Lost my 98 TJ after 19 yrs to an accident back in Dec....) So bring on the new JKU! 300 miles and I have the "itch" to lift it already...... It's amazing what you can afford when you don't have your wife spending it faster than you can make it.....
