Battery Impact Wrench

It that time of year again , so looking for a new toy, that will make whipping wheels off a joy!
Sierra Rear axel nuts too if possible ;-)
Anybody got any recent recommendations for a decent one?
Thinking 1/2" but wouldn't rule out 3/8 if comparable performance
Up to about £200 but flexible either way if a show stopper, else more beer funds

Cheers

another vote for Lidl (i am a member of the Lidl fanboy club), usually a 3 year warranty, batteries always in stock and the tools are pretty good quality

The Lidl Parkside one is utterly useless the new the Lidl that open a month go in my area had them in when it opened . Blurb on the box makes big claims about torque on the box even shows it undoing wheel nuts but the torque claims aren't realistic

Thanks so far

The Ryobi looks good, but some mixed reviews and the price creeps up when you add in batteries
I think the point of the one range would be wasted oil me too as theres not many tools I dont have already
Thanks though a possibility

Conrod , I've got a ton of Lidl/Aldi tools and I rate them.
But! I'm wary for an impact wrench as I dont want to be disappointed. Some of the big names dont fare well either!


If I cant get one for <£500 thats any good, I'll stick to my 3ft breaker bar!

Cheers

If you're going to get any use out of it, milwaukee is the only thing I'd spend my money on these days, easily better in every way than the dewalt, bosch, makitas these days. That's in heavy industry, getting abused 24/7 tho.
My old man had ryobi stuff which seem OK for a home garage, if a little gutless, but the price far outweighs the shortcomings for the amount of use his get.

And they've just brought out an inch drive one, can't wait to snap some bolts, (or my wrists) with that mother f****r !

Ryobi for me, works very well. I'm a hobbyist so not used all day everyday but as i have a few of their tools it made sense (one charger/2 batteries).

I got a load of AEG 18v items at a really good price when homebase were discontinuing stocking them. Have to say so far both the 1" impact wrench & impact driver done well and upto the job on most things tried

I have air tools also and old school big bar so was not expecting them to be able to tackle problem stuff but fine with wheel bolts, suspension items etc while stripping my old renault 5, 6Ah battery holds up for ages

Thanks all.
What youíve described is exactly where I am.
Biggest fear is buying one that ends up an expensive nut spinner, after youíve already done the hard work with a breaker etc.
I,m only a hobbyist, / home mechanic but I want it to be a go to tool and I do need it to do suspension brakes and other rusty old kit in my old age!
Looks like £200 is a bit shy, so happy to up the budget, a bit , but as a hobbyist donít think I can justify £500

I was going to say that you could have a hands on with the Ryobi, but you are a bit far away.
Unless you pass M1 Junction 30 at anytime?
I changed a drive shaft and it tightened the shaft nut beyond my 220ftlb torque wrench

I've tried a few of these, electric and some pneumatic ones, and never had them able to break a nut that I then subsequently get off with a normal 250mm wrench. No idea what I'm doing wrong but I've always been very skeptical.

I also have this and wish I'd bought one years ago.

Looking at that Lidl link I noticed there is a mains one too which will undo up to 500Nm but only do up to 100Nm. Is this the same with the battery ones?





Phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just
went on and on.

The Ryobi has 3 torque settings, the highest being 400Nm. I can confirm that this is also tightening torque.
It also has an impact driver attachment.

Thanks for the offer Mr 40Ē
Have you used it on any challenging parts yet? Wheels, brake calliper mounts , suspension or anything?

Iíd convinced myself that I needed one of these:

And one of these:
https://www.screwfix.com/p/dewalt-dcd778m2t-sfgb-18v-4-0ah-li-ion-xr-brushless-cordless-combi-drill/979hf

As my current driver is very tired too
Very good reviews on one of the mechanics forums, my only concern really is itís over 2.6 kg and on the bigger side which could make it unwieldy!

Which then brings us back to Lidl, super cheap if it does 90% and if it doesnít it,s £60, or the Ryobi, which looks a good contender, or the DeWalt, or something else!!

The mains ones work in a different way.
I wouldnt bother.

I dont think there is anything on a kit car the lidl one wouldnt undo.
