I just saw Ryobi has one for its 18 volt lithium line, and the bare tool is cheaper than the HF one of the same voltage. I think I'm gonna try one, maybe I'll look at the specs, if I get the time.

Depends what you want for torque. I have a Hitachi, don't know the model #. It's lightweight and feels like a 3/8 but has the power of a mid-sized 1/2. It might twist off a 1/2" bolt if the conditions are right but it will twist off a 3/8 bolt. Works great for cultivator bolts because of it's smaller size. The batteries seemingly last forever before needing a recharge. Jim

I have a 1/2 inch Snap-On and it will remove tractor lug nuts.

I have a 18 dewalt, rated around 500 lb-ft. Gets 99% of the jobs done I need to do. Yes there may be better cordless, however sooner or later your batteries will go south. I stuck with dewalt cordless tools because I have invested in 5 good batteries. There aren't too many dewalts cordless tools that I don't have. Still waiting on dewalt to come up with a grease gun.

I have a 20 volt lithium battery Dewalt that will remove tractor lugnuts and last for a long time on a battery,have to be careful to not break a wrist with the torque.

Been very happy with my Dewalt. Actually, it's got the 1/4" quick-change hex head but I've done lots of jobs using the 1/2" step-up adapter for it. They're the cat's meow for driving things like lag and deck screws!

Ryobi is pretty good... Used on lugnuts and to take off mower blades but nothing really heavy.

Although I do not own one yet from what I have researched and saw the dewalt twenty volt seems about the best. Even better than the snap on in my opinion. But If you don't need massive torque like for lugs ridgid I'd best for all cordless. Lifetime warranty even on batteries. Nobody else even comes close to that.

My 18 volt Snap On is 11 years old and still going. Used very heavily daily in an automotive repair facility. The only time an air impact comes out is when I forget to put a battery on the charger.

I have a 12 volt Hitachi; I can't tell much difference in performance from my friend's 18 volt Ryobi - except that it weighs a lot less than the 18 volt.

Milwaukee all the way. I have the 18 volt lithium battery. 450 torgue, beats the snapon. Had a selection of all kinds of drills and torque wrenches, Got rid of all of them and have 7 of the milwauke tools including a grease gun and flashlight that use the same battery (diadoe type). best made!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had an 18v DeWalt for several years and am extremely pleased with it. It's the larger model that was not part of a kit with other tools.

I have a Milwaukee... No one has beaten it for torque yet. We run trials at work from time to time. Not sure how long it will last though, Have had to get it repaired twice now, (warranty no cost, no questions). But I do beat the snot out of it. Use it to put the wheels on all the combines and grain carts that come in at work, plus use for just about everything else where it will fit.
