It's been this price at Amazon since Nov 20. Am I missing something?

Same at Home Depot IRRC. All the reviews say the driver is good but the wrench is pointless

The 1/2 impact wrench is weak. Using a 5ah battery, it struggles to open up the lug nuts on my TL.

The driver is great. Purchased last year around Christmas and love it. The wrench seems underpowered. I'd pass on this despite a good price.

This is only for light job. If you want more power, pay extra to get this one Makita XWT08Z LXT

This wrench is rated at 245 ft.lbs of nut busting torque and my lug nuts were only torqued down at 80 ft.lbs. To me changing tires is a light job, not trying to open up a crank bolt here.

Have this set, great for light miscellaneous jobs around the house (hanging shelves, putting together Ikea furniture, etc.) As mentioned before not quite strong enough for lug bolts, I usually break them loose with the breaker bar then switch to this to get them the rest of the way off. Still saves a considerable amount of time. Likewise I'll get the bolts mostly back on with the impact driver and then snug down with a torque wrench.

Specs says its 1,500 in-lbs and that equals 125ft-lbs not 245ft-lbs.

1500 in.lbs is the 1/4" impact driver, not the 1/2" impact wrench.

From the HD website, 6th bullet down: "Impact wrench with Makita built BL brushless motor delivers 155 ft./lbs. of maximum torque and 245 ft./lbs. of nut-busting torque"

Only 3Ah batteries. Do yourself a favor and get 5s!


Drills are nice though. If only looking for batteries there another popular post with a few options In comments.

The 1/2" impact wrench is horrid! I love Makita and this is the worst tool I've ever bought. I returned it within hours of buying it. It will not remove a lug nut torqued to 80ftlbs. The 1/4 hex impact driver is more powerful.
