    I am afraid that I won't be able to hold off in purchasing the Earthquake XT 20v 1/2" impact wrench. Do i need it? No. Do I badly want it? Yes I do! Want to get the Titanium 140 for myself for Christmas as well.

    Their tire changer is a great addition. I mount them on the floor but the bead breaker and stand are great. Have used it to break beads and clean the mud out many times. And the big tire iron bar that comes with it comes in handy all the time.

    Could be. But it’s literally 2x as expensive as the highly rated Earthquake XT 20v impact at Harbor Freight.

    I'd say that the milwaulkee is a good "pro-sumer" level tool, and the HF one is good enough for the joe schmo grade.

    Just depends on how much use you're going to be putting it through. HF is getting better everyday in their more "professional" lines though

    Saw the boxes in the store today. The orange is good looking, the green is eye popping. Kinda want a tool cart now.

    No mud flaps, plasti dipped emblems, and rear bumper, Weather tech digital fit, Bed mat from tractor supply. Pioneer 4400BH head unit. B.A.M.F bed rail tie downs. AVS vent visors.
    Was the T-55 you got at NAPA a impact socket? I’m having a hard time find that size in an impact, I got a Milwaukee fuel 1/2” impact back on Black Friday at Norther tools.

    Cant believe this is a thread!! I love me some HF. Still doing repairs from the hurricane last year and spent a lot of time and money at HF, they know me by name. The damn free coupons dont help either so I’m in there every other week.

    Got the Hercules saw a few months back, love it. Got a lot of hate from my neighbors who have dewalts, but ive done all the moulding in the house plus built some garden boxes with no issues. I also got the miter saw stand (not the hercules brand) cheaper and arms have a longer reach.7EC0EEE2-6617-43CC-9776-5E9FD3E0FE24.jpg
