Not the FUEL version, but it is brushless and it's a great deal for a spare impact or a gift this Christmas.

I get that a lifetime warranty is cool and all but to compare Ridgid to Milwaukee or Makita is just silly. They are large clunky tools that feel cheap in the hand and don't get better with a lifetime of use. I'll stick with tools i know i won't need to use with warranty with and pass on Ridgid all together.
Large and clunky? Sounds like you're referring to their tools from a decade or two ago and I love how you turned the lifetime warranty into a negative...LOL, have you never worn out a battery?

In current reality, Ridgid produces some really nice tools. As nice as Milwaukee Fuel or other top tier tools...maybe not, but pretty damn close at a much more affordable price and that lifetime of free service including free replacement batteries seals the deal for many of us.

We'll have to agree to disagree.

For all the people asking about lug nuts, I wouldn't hesitate to use this. Your only real risk is breaking the socket adapter. The tool will do fine.

If you can only have one tool, get this impact driver as it gives you the flexibility to drive screws and slap an adapter on and also act like an impact wrench.

My advice comes from my personal experience owning two Milwaukee impact drivers and 4 different impact wrenches of various size and torque ratings. I've used an M18 fuel impact driver many times to take wheels on and off of race cars when I didn't have my impact wrench handy.

I recommend that anyone doing lug nuts on wheels is to use the impact to take off the lug nuts, but when putting the lug nuts on, start by doing a few threads by hand to make sure they aren't cross threaded and then use the impact to torque to just barely tight, like you just start hearing the impacts as it snugs up ... then switch to torque wrench set to 80 lb or whatever your preferred number is, we use 90 a lot on race cars ... but much more than that can damage lugs, especially if they are aluminum ones.
I have been using IR 1/2 impact wrench for years to rotate tires. but it takes some work: turn on air compressor, roll out air hose and take out heavy IR impact wrench. For screw and drill, I have to use an electric drill, also heavy.
I recently bought Milwaukee impact driver M18 gen 3 with 166ft lbs of torque, which weighs about 3.4 lbs. I plan to use it for lug nuts, screw, drill, etc. One tool for all.

impact driver and impact wrench by Milwaukee have the same hammer design. the only difference is the 1/4 quick connector vs 3/8 plug. with socket connecting to an 1/2 adapter, 1/4 impact driver would lose some torque. Hence impact driver has less torque than impact wrench, which does not require adapter. for lug nuts, impact driver has plenty of power.

I'm looking for the same. This should do it. The only concern is the issue with the retainer ball.

If you're looking to take off lug nuts you need something like this - https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../206320076

The impact in this deal is more suited for driving screws.

You could watch the video in the link. Milwaukee made a 2min video that shows you all sorts of uses for it. Honestly if the only thing you need to do is take off lug nuts, just use a socket and a wrench.

Looks like all the brands are on sale for $100 https://www.homedepot.com/b/Tools...me=default
From link, Makita regular price is $129 and Milwaukee is $170. Typically, retailers would have similar margin within the same category. Is Milwaukee that much more expensive in cost?

if you only need to remove lug nuts a couple times a year, impact wrench is kid of wasted. Get milwaukee impact drive gen 3 with 166 ft lbs torque. it can remove lug nuts with ease and you can use it for other things: screw, nut/bolt, drill, etc.

Any chance this will go any lower for BF? I'm thinking of picking up the 1/2 in. Compact Drill/Driver w/ battery and charger combo for $99.00.
