    Gone through Dewalt and Hitachi and now onto Milwaukee. They cope well. We have a high turnover if tooling. Mostly impact wrench, drills and grinders. I too vote Milwaukee.

    We currently use about 8x Bosch Impact Wrench 18v Battery type. Love them, only problem is they lose a bit of their grunt after the first bar drops on the battery so i take about 3 up with me and swap between 2 guns throughout a 2 hour period of use.

    More on the extreme end of use, think we push them as hard possible. Had one die in 3 months of use which i think is good going under the circumstances.

    Use a 18V Milwaukee Band Saw though, great tool, useless battery(get 6 cuts out of it if lucky)

    I have for a long time been contemplating getting a half inch drive cordless impact tool.

    I do own a lot of 18 volt Makita stuff so logic said to go Makita.

    However, until now I reckon that when it came to this particular tool there were better options, hence my delay in purchase, because if I changed brand I would have to also purchase new batteries and charger.

    I had a little look around yesterday and I discovered that Makita have released a new model.

    It is a bit pricey at $420 but this thing is a weapon. 1,600Nm of nut busting torque.
    This got me so excited that I now have one on order.

    I was asked " Is it ignorance or apathy?" I replied "I don't know and I don't care."

    Resurrecting an old thread here
    I bought an 18v Ozito cordless impact wrench recently (skin only) for the princely sum of $139, I have been using a cordless tech gun for smaller work and wanted something with a bit more Grunt.
    It is brushless and is the 215nm model ( there is also a 180nm unit for $119) and it had absolutely NO difficulty undoing the rusted wheel nuts on my boat trailer So I gave it a whirl on the wheel nuts on my D2a which it also handled with ease.
    I was hoping that it would handle the trailer nuts because that was the primary reason for buying it and I was happily surprised with the amount of "Grunt" when it worked just as well on my truck wheel nuts as well.
    Using one of these when changing a tyre will make the chore SO much easier and as I am in my 60's that bloody breaker bar and wheel spanner are killers.
    I have NO illusions about this lasting forever although it does have a 5 year warranty and I won't be using it full time like a fitter would But as far as bang for buck goes this little unit is great

    cordless gear saves a lot of effort and can be used to run wheel nut OFF and UP, just don't be tempted to do the final tension on you wheel nuts with it. Ideally use a torque wrench or at least by hand with a tyre lever or breaker bar.

    If you are going to give it a lot of use then buy a Milwaukee. Top shelf tools and worth the price for professional use.

    X2. I bought a 3/4 drive, 18 volt one which started me down the Milwauke path. The thing is fantastic, if a little big. The 1/2" ones are cheaper. I'll not change now.

    I have No intention of using this on a continual basis and it certainly wont be seeing anything like professional use.
    It doesn't make much sense for me to spend hundreds of dollars more for a Milwaki or Dewalt unit for what I will need this tool for and how often I will use it so this Ozito unit will suit me just fine.
    I would much rather spend the extra quids on fishing gear or fuel for my next trip than on an expensive tool that will see little use
