    They are on sale at Wilco right now and I am tempted to buy one.

    I saw a kid using one to take the lug nuts off his truck prior to junking it, but I doubt they were torqued. I think they work pretty well. I would buy a lithium battery for it if I bought one.

    The cordless ones have major torque. I totally doubted them when I saw them, but then I used one to install my entire lift kit. On one battery.

    I had no issues getting nuts off.

    Electric impact wrenches are great because of their portability. You don't need a big air compressor to run them, and you're not limited by the length of the air hose.

    A have big air compressor so I don't have an electric one, but I would like to have one.

    They're reliable, if you get a reliable brand.

    What voltage?

    I have a 14.4 volt Makita. Haven't used it much yet. I know they say the 18v will do lug nuts, not sure about the 14v. I need to try it one day. I do love my Makita though.

    we have 28 volt makita's and milwakee's at my job there awesome. we have to use them because we cracking bolts with lead and asbestos on them and you cant use pnuematic air tools. it breaks loose equiptment thats been in rain for 30 years no problem.i know dewalt makes a great 1/2" drive that probably isnt that expensive, but i think you would be happy with a nice cordless 18v snap-on.my friends use on 1" flywheel nuts and prop nuts all day on outboards.good luck

    I paid about $30 for mine from Canadian Tire....works awesome for how cheap it is.

    It will over torque lugs on my truck (80 lbs plus) and no issues at all breaking torque on wheel nuts

    The ones with enough power to be compared to air impacts cost so much you could nearly buy a whole air compressor and air impact, a much more versatile setup plus air impacts are much smaller and lighter.

    What do you want out of the tool?

    I had an 18v Makita, and it took my lug nuts off. But, it didn't budge my rear diff fill cap.
