I was looking at the Same form factor 150ft lbs version vs the full sized one @300ft lbs torque

^^^ Nevermind. 125 ft/lbs is actually pretty good for a 1/4" drive tool, and DeWalt makes good stuff. I hope you spend some more money with that friendly dealer!

ALso mentioned I wanted the 1/2" drive too. SO I have til noon monday to let him know which of the other 2 tools I want and that will conclude our business.

But, Like I said, I will ask. Any business man scared of a little money is no business man at all. Know what I mean>?

HomeDepot Has them @169 right now...

I wanted to see one in person before I got one. Have had my eyes on these for some time too. But opportunity came and I utilized it.

If I get some big jobs that require them again I'll probably drop the $500 to replace them all again.

That do you think though on the 2 1/2" ones though? 300ft lbs or 150ft lbs version?

If you need more torque then go for the 300ft lb version but know that it's rather large as far as the case itself so keep the in mind as clearance issues may keep you from being able to use it. I got a TON of use from the non-brushless one and it did everything I asked of it w/o any complaints. I got even more use from my Dewalt 12v impact as it was small and lightweight and lived on my belt when I did time as an electrician. If you don't need the longer battery life of the burshless for large jobs then it may not be the best fit for your needs. I'm going to be finishing my basement soon so this will be perfect for that purpose. As some have stated you will likely still need to use breaker bars to manually do things in the garage but around construction and stuff they work fantastically. It really does come down to personal needs & wants though so it's not really a question I can answer for you.

I like a good deal, thats what I got. On the 4 piece set, i got it for almost half price for a NIB set. The impact brushless 1/4" $140 so again, almost half. Personally, I have had one fail over the 12 years I have used their tools. They warranty's without an issue.

The majority of cordless tools i use are impact drivers. I have used dewalt, makita and Milwaukee, all 18v. Makita is my favorite but the dewalts are nice also, i wasnt very happy with the milwaukee impact, it wore out very quickly and it is now slow and loud. I havnt tried milwaukees new impact with the brushless motor. My brushless makita impact is awesome, 3 speeds, batterys last forever and charge quick, plenty of power for a 18v tool.

I have yet to switch over to cordless tools. Had a 12 volt dewalt a few years ago. Worked good but got sick of the charging and running out features.
My garage is a death trap when I get going, light, drill, grinder, sawsall...... all corded.
I am considering makita though.
Anyone use Bosch on a regular basis?

I have a craftsman 20v professional cordless impact. It has worked well on everything I have tried it on. Breaks the stubborn bolts pretty easily, even the rusted out bed bolts when I added the extra d rings.

I thought Dewalt was a US company, but it appears they release overseas first.

Also, to save your batterys that are dying

graduated from a crapsman to my current panasonic model. casual, and even experienced cordless drill-users have been surprised to learn that panasonic made one of the absolute best cordless drills available when i purchased mine 10 years-ago. it is a lithe, lean, very comfortable-to-use beast, far surpassing the big name brands which i had tried. that said, if/when this one dies, there is another brand to consider--------------festool. hard to find (german-made), and pricey, yet with a stellar rep amongst serious tool owners http://festools-online.com/festool-t...ol-drills.html

I realized after I got the combo kit that I didn't get the right sawzall. Mine is a 1" thrust. Yours is the 1-1/8", with a 4 way chuck. I am selling mine so I can buy the right one like you have.

Searched the web, the numbers off our stuff came were all different than what was sold at the big stores.

Just my .02 and in most cases (mine included as I have all craftsman cordless tools) they are good enough for the average homeowner/DIY'er but not for someone who needs their stuff all day, every day.

In many cases, it is actually to PROTECT the little guy. Part numbers are altered so that smaller shops like the one you worked for are not forced into price-matching against the big-box stores.
My Blue-Ray player came from Sam's, and carries a different model number than Best Buy... but the Harmony remote settings work properly using the settings for the "standard" Sony part number that cost $50 more at Best Buy. The two units are identical except for the part number.

How can Walmart sell for $160 when you can't sell for less than $300?
Walmart bought 20,000 units. You bought 20.
