Decent deal. I'd bite on the D handle jigsaw if I could return the battery in store. Not much resale value to the 5.0ah batteries.

FYI Milwaukee NPS 19 is tomorrow where they show off their new tools for the upcoming year, can't wait! Should be some good deals coming up on older tools that are being replaced.

I've been looking to get a Milwaukee impact wrench to replace my Craftsman CP3 (trying to have all my tools under 1 battery platform). Debating if I should get the M12 stubby impact wrench or the M18. I'm mainly using it for removing lug nuts and possibly brake job and I know M12 is a favorite with mechanics.

I already have two 5.0ah and one 9.0ah from my drill/driver set and string trimmer (respectively). I have a M12 2.0ah that I got free with my oscillating tool and 4.0ah from hackzall.

does anyone know if those 20 off 200 coupons on ebay work online or if there are online versions of them?

I've bought some and used in store, but not online yet ...

for my use, it will be my only impact as my shop doesnt have enough juice to run a lg compressor, and i do a lot of remote work. so the m18 is an easy choice for me. if i had a pneumatic, the stubby, or a smaller m18 would be my choice.

ive been watching these impacts for about 9 months now, and i havent seen this one go on sale for this price till now. what is really holding me back from clicking buy is that about a year ago it was down to 220 with charger and battery. idk if it will ever hit that mark again. at this point its going to be closer to 270 after i buy the charger.

Thanks. I only want he M18 version for the extra umpf for hard to remove lug nuts.

I'm not a mechanic so the M18 may be overkill. The M12 is probably more within my budget but my only concern is if it is strong enough to remove lug nuts. I've seen videos and the stubby had no problem from what I've seen but I guess I can always do it the hard way and do it manually if needed.

Hopefully, they'll have deals for the 1/2" stubby with free battery deal. I don't need the M12 charger. I'm actually looking to unload my brand new one

I think the mid torque one is probably your best bet.

agree with fithos... i dont have any of them, but from my exhausting research, it seems like the m12 is for random nuts and bolts. more torque than an impact *driver*, but not enough to take most lugs off. the mid torque models will do 90% of the stuff out there, including lugs... the high torque model(2767) is going to do what the mid torque will, but will also take off some very large axle nuts, and other very very rusted on nuts, at the expense of weight and price.

if you are looking to do lug nuts, i dont think the m12 will cut it.

Thanks. I'll look and keep an eye out for the mid-torque.

I only mentioned the M12 1/2" stubby because there are quite a few videos on YouTube where you see people using it to remove lug nuts. Both cars, SUV and bigger trucks.

no problerm

yeah, im not saying it wont do it at all, but you will definitely get the occasional one that is on there real good and the stubby wont do it. for me an impact is meant to be overkill. unless youre a pro that is carrying the thing around all day and the extra weight is going to affect you... id rather have something that will cover everything i could possibly throw at it.

I have the M12 Fuel and it failed to budge the lug nuts in my truck. Should have gone with M18... and I did. Alas, I don't have a charger for M18 batteries.

I'll just say this: It only takes one job where there isn't enough torque in the tool to make you realize you should've just bought the big boy version in the first place. They have a one key version where you can dial in tightening torque and I believe it's within 10% error in testing. It has the full 1400 ft lbs. THATS the one I'm waiting for a deal on. I've got their first gen brushed torque wrench and it does 700 or 800 but it's let me down a few times. Just waiting for the right deal to upgrade.

I've been thinking a lot about which one to get and I have to say I think the m18 high torque is overkill. It's so big and bulky that it just isn't worth it. Howveer. I have an air tank with a heavy duty impact that I can use when all else fails.

While I hear what your saying I have the ridgid version of the m18 midtorque and only twice has it not had the juice to loosen the nut/bolt. One was u bolt that had been rusted in place for 75 years, California rust but still a long time, ended up using a torch, 3/4 and 1 inch impacts didn't touch it. The other was a head bolt but I may have only had the impact on level 1 or 2 don't remember that I used a 3 foot breaker bar. I would say mid torque will work for 99% or more of daily tasks and that is coming from someone who rebuilds medium duty trucks, f250, 3500, 450 and 550s on the side.
