Average price on Ebay is $142. Not slick.

Not that great of a tool, pretty underpowered. The Ridgid 1/2" is much stronger.

And Makita has one that is stronger than that, so lets compare apples to apples.

The Makita would be a compact size impact wrench whereas the Ridgid would be a Mid-Torque, or mid-size impact wrench. The Ridgid is a much larger tool.
The equivalent Ridgid impact wrench in size to the Makita would be their new Ridgid 3/8" compact impact wrench.

Not surprising, it also have close to the same power ratings as the Makita.

Ah ok thanks! I was a bit worried because I saw an amazon review saying it's too weak to remove lug nuts, but from my understand most commercial car lug nuts are torqued to about 80 ft pds of torque while this wrench outputs 200ish

The Ridgid one for sure: from web; "Impact Wrench: Maximum torque output of 485 ft./lbs. of torque in forward and 620 ft./lbs. of torque in reverse for heavy-duty applications"
and from Q&A; "I use it all day in a professional shop! With the 4ah battery, it goes 3-4 days without needing to charge. I use it for axle nuts, crankshaft pulleys and lug nuts. This thing never skips a beat, and has never strained! Just buy it!"

The 3/8" Ridgid impact is 200ft/lbs and the 1/2" (mentioned here) does 450ftlbs with that battery or 620ftlbs with an octane battery
