this is a good deal because normally it's $399 full price, however normal kits include two 5.0ah batteries

I have both this and the gen 2 high torque. If you must have only 1 I would highly suggest the high torque one

The high torque one has truly impressive power, but it is also very heavy and huge. While the mid torque is a much more manageable size and weight that can fit in more places, it still has 600 ft-lbs of torque that should be enough for practically anything encountered on typical modern cars.

"Delivers up to 600 ft. lbs. Of Nut-Busting Torque"

LMAO

Yes the size and weight difference is considerable and noticeable. However this struggled with suspension work on a new england 13 year old car. Not to mention Honda crankshaft pulleys, those things laugh at 6 ft long breaker bars. For most uses this would suffice but the high torque is not that much bigger and fits in most places that the mid torque can fit in

I determined that all 3 sizes have a place in my toolbox. The gen2 high torque I do have difficulty getting into spots even with impact swivels and universals. The 3/8 doesn't have the power to get some stuff loose but it's nice and small. Start with the high and work your way down, the 1200ft/lbs is a lifesaver when you need it. Next I want the cordless ratchet.

Is this worth buying for the DIYer who uses wd40 a mini sledge and 4-Way Cross Wrench for home use or overkill?

Yes, the best all around for the weekend warrior would be this Mid Torque kit.

Utube to see comparison of High and Mid torque M18 Fuel models.

If you just need it for wheel lugs to rotate tires occasionally, this is overkill. You might want to upgrade your current kit to a socket with a long breaker bar, or, if you really don't want to do it manually anymore, look into a corded impact wrench for well under $100.

It really puts out 450 ft/lbs torque. "Nut busting torque" is marketing to inflate the numbers.

Honest question, as I've never used a dedicated impact wrench/driver. I have the Ridgid drill and impact driver kit (~550lb torque), and use these socket adapters...

What's the advantage of this vs an impact driver + adapters?


Edit... nevermind... I'm a dummy. Realized I was comparing ft lbs to in lbs.

450 ft-lbs is the tightening torque. The loosening torque is 600 ft-lbs.

This is perfect for tire changing. I have the gen 1 high torque....at 700ft lbs....it was way too much for changing and rotating tires. I had to use a 2 foot breaker bar and a 3 foot pipe to loosen the lug nuts. And I didn't even go crazy on tighten them. I was lucky it didn't snap the studs.

Are you sure it's 550ft lbs? Or 550inch lbs? And impart driver usually in inch lbs and not really meant for torquing down wheels. I hope you didn't just use this on wheels...hope you at least use a torque wrench
