I hope this serves some purpose for some as these are rarely on sale-ish. I wish I had stumbled upon this before changing the front & rear suspension on my Mustang over the past few weeks as my Octane Ridgid was rather cumbersome in some areas. Happy shopping all!

Completely different tools. The M18 compact brushless impact driver (I assume you mean 2850-21) is 133ftlbs and really meant for driving fasteners although you can use it with an adapter for impact sockets, the 1/2" M12 stubby impact wrench is 250 ftlbs and meant for loosing/tightening bolts and nuts. If all you need is something for occasional lugnut removal on a passenger car, and your tire shop isn't staffed by incompetent a-holes who don't care about torque specs, then it would probably work. If you want something for more general automotive work, the stubby is the way to go.

I've been eyeing the bare tool version for a while. Does anyone know how much returning the 6ah pack would net as I have piles of batteries and really don't need more.

It's going to be a single SKU so you can't return the battery separately.

But they're usually pretty easy to flip for $60 bucks or so.

Ha, funny I've been eyeing this for my garage. The free 6.0 battery is worth $65. This is a great deal, however CPO Outlets has (1/2) for $20 less:

https://www.cpooutlets.com/milwau...55-22.html $249

And the (1/4")
https://www.cpooutlets.com/milwau...52-22.html $249

They have it for the same price for the (3/8")
https://www.cpooutlets.com/milwau...54-22.html $269

xc4 vs xc6 buddy. The $20 difference will be worth it for most people. For diy work I recommend ppl get the base tool and the xc 2 battery and charger. Enough power and battery life. These things don't cut it for suspension work and rusted exhaust bolts.

Not related but is there some sort of warranty fraud going on with this tool? That or people are stealing them. I see plenty "brand new, open box, tool only" on Facebook marketplace/offer up/craigslist for $130

No, the deal at CPO is the same but with a better price. The base tool includes a 2.0 and 4.0ah battery with a free 6.0ah battery at checkout.

I assume it's flippers who buy a set at discount, then break it up and sell the individual parts.

That makes me feel better. I happily paid $110 for my brand new 1/2" stubby impact and it's great Big Grin

Yep, and only 3 left when I just looked. Great price if you want all the batts, or want to flip the 6. If you plan on getting into the M12 line and want to look at the fuel hackzall (don't get the brushless, it's one tool it really makes a difference) then I'd suggest keeping the 6 and getting the hackzall bare tool.

I agree. I bought the 3/8" fuel M18 and that has to be the biggest overates pos tool I have ever purchased.
It won't break away at 75lb/ft much less what they rate it at.
No way this impact will do 250.
