First deal post! Tell me what you all think.

Price is $199 for the kit. Don't forget that Home Depot accepts Paypal so that's 5% with a category cashback card. Note: These are not the fuel versions but still looks like a decent deal especially since the batteries are included.

2) M18 1/2 in. impact wrench. #2663-20. 450 ft lbs torque. M18 XC 3.0 Ah battery included.

Is it just me, or is this kind of screwy to get an M12 and M18 together in a kit?

Kind of, but also kind of handy. Both lines have some great tools, and don't forget the heated jackets.

Yeah, I stuck that in the original post but maybe it's hard to see. I know that the fuel impact is brushless and has more power, but are there other reasons would you choose the fuel impact vs. non fuel if 450 ft lbs is enough for the application?
The impact is much larger than the fuel one, I'd bet it's heavier too. I personally am looking to hold out for the m12 stubby, it has enough power to do most things and I have my old pneumatic for anything ultra heavy duty.
Sucks because I just bought the 3/8" ratchet in another kit a couple of weeks ago. If this ratchet was the 1/4", I'd still probably get this and keep an eye out for the stubby later.

More torque isn't always better, better designed tool is always better.
I bet more than a few people have regretted the high torque of the Fuel ratchet when they didn't have room for a good hold on the tool and got their fingers slammed into the engine block when they pulled the trigger.

To me, torque is pretty irrelevant on a power ratchet since they are designed to push/pull on them like a regular ratchet wrench to break the fastener loose and then pull the trigger to zip it off.

If you buy a Milwaukee impact, make sure it has more power than you need. I bought one and it doesn't quite hit the rated ft/lbs. Both of these tools are older versions as others have pointed out.

Perhaps they want to sell you into both product lines? I love M12 but am indifferent towards the M18 line.

I honestly miss the 2663-20. I sold it to get the 2863 and the 2663 has a good balance and will do most if not all the jobs for your around the house/garage applications. I don't see anything being torqued down more than 500 foot pounds for your car or around the house. Don't get me wrong the 2863 is more than enough... but as an impact wrench... the 2663 is perfect.

I bought the mid torque fuel and have loved it. I also bought the fuel ratchet when it was on sale earlier this year for 139 and find it too large. I would recommend the mid torque or high torque in 1/2" and a stubby m12 in 3/8. With those two you can complete just about any servicing to your car.
Stubby M12 comes in 1/2" as well, any reason to go with 3/8"? I guess not having to switch sockets backa nd forth?

I'm looking Into the Ridgid octane impact wrench. It costs $250 versus this. I would really appreciate some honest opinions. Thanks .
Have the rigid octane, you can get it for 80 or less if you take advantage of partial return. I wouldn't pay 250 for it unless you are getting other stuff.

That being said the octane impact wrench is a beast. It's also big so mainly for lugs and stuff. If I had to do it again i'd get the m12 fuel stubby 1/2" impact wrench. Its not as powerful but much more compact. I do a lot of suspension and under body stuff so the octanes pretty useless in tight spaces.

If you want a big powerful impact for changing tires etc. you won't be disapointed with the octane. Other good options are the m18 fuel impacts (around 250-700 depending how beastly) and the Earthquake from harbor freight is awesome too.

Ridgid octane has 50% more break away torque than the gen5x brushless. Its rated at 650lbs break away and the stock 450lbs(same as stock gen 5x brushless) tightening. And the batteries last forever. id say the 2ah is good for rotating 16 sets of tires before its down to a half charge. I can rotate 4 sets, and it wont even move a bar.

Just because it's smaller w/lower torque, but this is personal choice. I use my mid torque fuel m18 impact 1/2 for lugs and break calipers on suv. My wheel bolts freeze on due to rust so would be surprised if the stubby could remove them and brake caliper screws are tightened to 200ftlbs on the front of my VW Touareg. I had to stand on my breaker bar once to remove the wheel lug screws.

I think you misunderstood the question. I'm asking why get the stubby M12 in 3/8" if you can get it in 1/2"? They have the same torque ratings, and the difference is .1"

the rigid octane impact wrench and the gen5x impact wrench are the same tool just rebadged octane. The improvement comes from the octane batteries.

There"s tests on youtube where they throw an octane battery on gen5x tools and most of them are identical to the octanes.

Actually, the Gen5x brushless and the Ridgid Octane are the same impact wrench. The only difference is the octane battery. Slap an Octane Battery on a gen5x brushless and you have the same power as the Ridgid Octane. They even have the same part number. The just couldn't call the gen5x brushless octane when they first released it because the octane line wasn't released (batteries weren't ready).

$250 is way overpriced since you can pick up the wrench with a non octane battery for $149 currently and there are constantly deals to get it with other kits.

I would recommend the Ridgid Impact Wrench (go for gen5x brushless to save money for the same tool) over this Milwaukee Impact Wrench. Similar size and with the octane battery, more power, and a much better warranty on the tool. You can even get the LSA on batteries if you get them from a kit.

However, as a part of this kit, if the ratchet is useful to you, and you think 450 ft lbs break away is sufficient for your needs, then this isn't a bad price.
