Just puchased a 18 volt set up from craftman and just to let everyone know if you considering one, that this is a very good impact. I f your like me I was scared it would not be strong enuff, but it has plenty of power. I tought I would post cause there is not much info about them out there but it worls great if you cant have the luxury of air

I would be curious what it torques your lug nuts to with a fresh battery??? exactly??

1st lug on
2nd
3rd
4th
5th
6th
7th
8th
9th
10th

I bought and returned a dewalt 14.4 volt.

that started at 120lbs and was 90 on the 5th one, and down to 80 there after. it could pull them all off but it put them on with a large drop of in lbs of torque applied and really fast in my opinion.....

I want a cordless but I want real torque numbers.

Just got my Milwaukee, looks great, works great, havent used it much yet of course, but I did change some tires with ease yesterday. Seems very durable, nice case to protect it. $200 cheaper than the snap on and it comes with 2nd battery.

How about some of you guys do some wheels like I mentioned above and test the torque afterwards so WE ALL KNOW how good they actually work with torque numbers??

Like I said the Dewalt seemed great, but the torque dropped way way off fast.

Has anyone tried out the new Milwaukee 28 volt yet? It's got 325 ft/lbs of torque and is supposed to last twice as long over an 18 volt. Got a b-day coming up and that's what I may ask for.

O.K. I was working on my trailer this weekend. Pulled all four wheels off and when I put them back on, (using the same battery) I checked the first five lug nuts with my torque wrench. I just spun them on, I did NOT sit there and "hammer" on each one. All lug nuts checked between 100 and 110 ft-lbs. I have the Milwaukee 18 volt. It cost me $325 with case and 2 batteries and charger. Dave

I've noticed with my Milwaukee that it will do about 40-60 lugs nuts (Off & On counting as 2, so about 4-6 tire changes) before a noticable drop in power with a good battery.

The nice thing with the 2 batteries is the 1 can be charged and used for tire changes before warm ups or heat races, then the fresh battery put on in case a quick change is need in the main.

Forgot to put in my last post: I checked the first five AND the last five lug nuts. All checked between 100 and 110 ft-lbs.

I've got one from harbor freight, about $165 and I love it. I've used it for about a year now and still works great. It's a 19.2 volt and takes about 1 1/2 hours to charge. one battery will run atleast a half a day in the shop with constant use.I don't know what the torque is but I check the lugs after I put them on anyway.
