    Looking to buy a cordless impact wrench.

    Hi all.

    Can anyone recommend a good cordless impact wrench to buy?

    It doesn't have to be the best brand. Any ones to avoid, or good things to look for?

    I'm not looking to spend silly money as its just for the odd stubborn nut and bolt. Looking to buy new, as i don't want to be dealing in the stolen tools trade.

    Thanks for any help.

    Chris.

    do you have any other battery tools? see if there are compatible guns to match the battery and chanrger that you already have, as the battery and chargers are the expensive bits.

    Hi Rick.

    Yes that's worth thinking about. I have a Dewalt drill with two batteries. I was also thinking of getting a cordless angle grinder at some point. Maybe i could get just the tools without the battery and charger. Thanks Rick.

    Chris,

    I bought one of these a few years ago now, best tool I've had in ages. Great for tight bolts and jobs in a hurry. I stripped a whole truck with it a while back saves time and effort. Battery last for ages.

    Wrong one, it is this one

    If you're looking for something that you'll use regularly go for the brushless versions, better battery life, more power but also dearer to repair, I personally have all Makita cordless stuff as it's what I started out with & as I've got around 15 batteries & several chargers, it just makes sense to stay with one brand.

    I've got a Dewalt 18v XR brushless impact driver.
    Use it sporadically for home use, brought dewalt on strength of online reviews and due already have a cordless dewalt drill (with same batteries) and a corded drill which has lasted years.

    Can't say how it compares to others, as its the only one I've ever had...but its never failed to undo anything yet.

    I agree with this.
    I have the 3/8th and 1/2 in 18v lithium ion 4ah.
    The 1/2 is a bit too heavy duty and is only used on fully seized nuts. The 3/8 is a little cracker and gets in tight spaces but still does up to 230nm of torque.
    I bought both of these as "naked" units off ebay as i already had 3 batteries when i bought my drill.
    The 3/8 has been absoluted hammered over 5 years and never missed a beat. (Up to m20 nuts too)
    The best part though is the batteries sometimes they go for months without a charge with no issues. The old 18v dewalt ovals needed topping up regular and suffered with cell failure.
    Never regretted spending the extra on these as they have paid for themselve 10 times over.

    I have this

    https://www.kielder.co/products/18v-...-1-5ah-battery

    it's the ********, wish I'd bought one years ago, small, light and loads of power. Wouldn't bother with 1/2 unless you're doing tyres/ brakes all day or commercials. wheel nuts 36" 1/2' breaker bar to crack them, then this to run them off.
