I have one of these. It works really well for day-to day projects.

It's rated for a lot over 100 ft pounds. I bought a Dewalt corded one last year because it was 1/2 price and I never even use it the cordless one works so well.
The Dewalt I have is rated for 700 ft-lbs but it has 3 levels so you don't just snap everything smaller than a 5/8" stud.

EDIT: OP - sound like you don't need a "thunder gun", so this:

I have a brushless 1/4" hex impact driver, and it's my most used cordless tool for wrenching. On high, it's throwing down a legit 100-120 ft-lbs, and on low it won't snap a #6 screw. Has paid for itself in time saved.

I have 2 of the 1/4" 12v Bosch Impact drivers, 1 of the 1/2 18V Bosch Impact driver, and the Makita 18V 1/2" impact driver. I like them all, the Makita is the same as the fuel series Mikfakwee 1/2". I can't say it will replace my air tools as they weight a crap load more and still don't fit everywhere but they are nice if you can't get air.

Buddy has the yellow versions of the 3/8" and they do well so far.

I prefer the teal as I think they have a better build quality per the AVE tear down videos.

One of the reason I like the 12V bosch is they are super compact, I think the makita is the same most of the other companies have a bit more bulk on the batteries and it makes a difference working in tight spaces.

My M18 Fuel 1/2" impact (model 2767) is rated at 1000 ft/lbs of fastening torque and 1400 ft lbs of breaking torque - you won't need any air tools for "serious work" It does have a three or four different levels you can select if you don't need the full 1400 lbs of whoop-ass. They aren't cheap, but they are awesome!
Yup. Recently upgraded my ~10 year old Craftsman 19.2V drill/1/4" driver, and 1/2" impact for Milwaukee 18V Fuel. SHazzaaam.

Home Depot has a deal you get a free 5.0 Ah battery with purchase of the drill/driver combo, 1/2" impact, etc.

The drill/driver combo comes with 2 batteries and charger. The impact is bare tool no charger or battery.

The Craftsman is nice,It's like the difference between homeowner grade and professional grade tools. They aren't cheap, but you don't have to deal with tools that just barely "get it done".

Dude. My dewalt 20v inflator has the highest 'this is dumb' to 'omg how did I live without this' factor of all my cordless stuff.

This, I've bought all kinds of dewalt 20v tools, but never seen the need for a 3/8" impact or small 1/2" the 1/4" hex impact is 144lbft IIRC, I switch between 1/4 and 3/8 drivers, then pick up the 1/2" impact for a 1/2" or larger fastener, ie, lugnuts


I'd buy the basic budget kit, 1/4" driver, drill, 2 bath and charger for about 200 or less, then buy the 1/2 impact for 150

I've got a contractor and his helper here rebuilding a deck. They have a giant box full of 18V Ryobi stuff. I've been running the handrail and have my Milwaukee 18V Fuel stuff out. They have been allowed to use it and as such have been. After about 3 days, they don't even get their tools out unless I need one of mine back and take it away from them. They have a Ryobi compound miter saw, corded. They used the Milwaukee 18V Fuel version once and put their corded saw back in the truck. I realize it isn't a wholly apples to apples comparison, I just get a bit of a giggle watching their preference change. It has also been enlightening watching a direct side x side comparison.

My retired neighbor helps me, I help him. We get along fine. He has become Mr. Offer Up specializing in Milwaukee stuff. He winds up with some smoking deals due to buying packages and breaking them up, selling individual tools until he winds up with something like a 9.0 battery for free because the sale of the rest made him back his money. As such, he has hooked me up with some serious deals. 12.0 battery for 90 bucks, Fuel Sawzall for 140, Multitool for 50, 8.0 battery for 60, several 9.0 batteries for 75-80 each. Picked up another 3/8" impact a few days ago for 80. Blew up a 1/2" drill driver that I've used the crap out of, hollered at him that I wanted another one. Had one for 60 the next day.

I brought it up because it's what I've got and I wouldn't do it again knowing what we know now about Sears decline but I have no complaints about my 19.2 volt stuff. And I keep finding deals on second hand stuff. I have 3 drills, 2 flashlights, a fluorescent lantern, 2 small circular saws, which are probably the least effective thing they made, 2 1/2 inch impacts, a 3/8 impact, a right angle drill, a sawzall, a palm sander, an inflator, a chainsaw, a sabre saw, a hedge trimmer, a car vac, .... who'da thunk...

Best upgrade is the large Li batteries

Need another drill and circ saw? Just changed my saw to a Milwaukee, Sears was not up to the task of cutting a 2x4.

My buddy had a Crapsman 19.2 volt impact. The piece of shit wouldn’t break the lugnuts on his wife’s Camry about 6 months after he got it. Lugs are torqued to 70 ft lbs. He replaced it with a fuel 1/2 inch.

Not really. The last time I used one of the circ. Saws it was with a cutoff wheel to cut a guy wire support. They pretty much suck. But the impacts are a whole other story.

I been meaning to pick one of those up but my old one will not die. It's a $50 orange (now blackish) HF impact rated at 300 ft lbs. I've had it and used it excessively since 2005. I never expected it to last through 14 years of salty jeeps.
