  1. Kent

    Awesome little powerful impact. I converted a bunch of guys to Milwaukee in my shop. Easily removes most car wheels, if they are not overtorqued. Caliper bracket bolts are now a piece of cake. I still use my air impact once or twice a week, but most of the time, the mid-torque will do the work.

    Been using this tool for a couple months. I’m very impressed with it for the most part. It did struggle with removing 19mm and 22mm wheel locks that are usually torqued to 85ft/lbs. Maybe the previous tech over torqued it. Had this happen a few times which resorted to the air tool. But all in all this is still an amazing tool

    Good quality tool. I already had the high torque fuel m18 impact and the compact 3/8 fuel impact and wanted to add this to my tool box. I am an automotive tech, I find this tool can do a large amount of the work I require, it is great for fitting in tight areas. My only complaint is I wish that it had even more power, it does slightly struggle with ram 1/2 ton lug nuts and I’ve had some trouble with driveshaft bolts that have locktite on them. But overall this tool is light for the amount of power, and comes with the awesome Milwaukee name and warranty. I also recommend buying the boot for it (I have been having issues finding it so far for the mid torque).
