Quote from why_so_serious

IIRC, I saw a video with a guy comparing the old style Ryobi Impact Wrench to a Dewalt and both started to fail to remove nuts at around 250 so if the new style has any improvements it should be at least 250 or something in between 250 and 300. Caveat though is that he was using the new HP battery which may skew numbers a bit. Not sure if new HP batteries only help brushless or also help non-brushless performance.

Ryobi has not updated their impact in a few years so it's probably coming.
I think the cells in the new HP packs have a higher discharge rate last time I checked so that seems about right.

$50 may be, but even $99 way to much.
If you're patient enough, you may find them for $50 or under.

I bought this kit while it was this price around Black Friday and love it. I knew it was a good buy the very first time I used it. I would recommend it for the home garage weekend warrior DIYer.

So I decided to return this tool and buy a corded Metabo [amazon.com]. My thinking is that I don't have a specific need/want for a cordless wrench so I'd rather not have to deal with a battery replacement x years in the future. I was also a little perturbed by reports that this is not truly as powerful as its specs suggest, and the Metabo seems like a more powerful machine. I considered the Porter Cable [amazon.com] tool but the Metabo's promise of variable power made the difference. Metabo is what was Hitachi (hence the green color) and I already have some Hitachi tools with which I have been very happy. I still think this Ryobi is a good tool at a good price but I reckoned it wasn't the best choice for me.

Metabo HPT is what used to be Hitachi, a solid consumer level tool brand. The HPT stands for Hitachi Power Tools.

What you got was an actual Metabo, a high quality professional level German brand that shares little with Metabo HPT except the similar name and ownership by the same private equity firm.

And the fact that it's green! Smilie Thanks for the info.

UPDATE: received the Metabo today and it is a 6.5 lb beast! One thing to note is that it uses a detent pin rather than a hog ring. That won't be a problem for me but might be for some.

You should be fully tightening lugs with a torque wrench really.
I always just finger tighten on my wife's car.

This is just an okay deal unless you really need all the 300 ft-lbs. You can add a Ryobi P166 and P238 to your cart and get them both for $99. The P238 can do 183 ft-lbs which is more than enough for lug nuts and most anything else many will be using it for. The P166 kit gets you two 3.0Ah Lithium+ HP batteries as well as a charger and bag.
There's a reason one is called an impact driver and this one is called an impact wrench. Try using that impact driver on some lugs semi regularly and then see how straight it drives a screw afterwards. Not to mention the wear from pushing that motor to it's limits, with any decent amount of use that impact driver will be dead after a year. Telling someone to use the wrong tool for a job it was never intended to do is always horrible advice. Could it technically remove lugs? With a half inch socket adaptor yes. Is it a good idea to use a little quarter inch driver on lugs? Not at all.

If you are referring to the 3/8ths you don't want it. I could torque down to 80ft/lbs and it simply couldn't break loose.

Returned whole setup.

Reading thru some of the Q&A on HD for this, one recommendation is to loosen lug nuts on the highest speed and tighten on the lowest.
Some YoeTube Video to kill some time:
