I wouldn't exactly call installing Red Heads in a slab "woodworking" as was your previous claim for what this impact wrench was designed for.

Those agents, whoever they are, that say this Ryobi Impact Wrench isn't for automotive use need to talk to the agents on the Ryobi Tools Team who respond in the Q&A section [homedepot.com] talking about automotive use.
Woodworking - their words not mine. Actually the Q&A is pretty consistent for the most part with what I've said, with a few exceptions. Whether it's slab anchors or lag bolts, the idea remains the same; it makes sense to have more forward torque than reverse for those applications.

You must be looking at a different tool than I am. The Ryobi impact wrench I'm looking at, #P1833, has half a dozen responses in the Q&A from the Ryobi team about automotive use and not a single one that I noticed about "woodworking" or more forward torque than reverse.

The number you referenced (P1833) is the kit number.
The impact wrench model number, is P261.
Without focusing on woodworking vs. automotive work, there seems to be some validity to what riggedveda is saying.

A response from the Ryobi Tools Team in the comment section of Home Depot about the claims of 300 ft/lbs of torque:and the inability to remove a commenter's lug nuts:

"Since this impact wrench is not designed for lug nuts, we do not recommend attempting to use it for that purpose. This impact wrench may be able to install the lug nuts but does not have enough torque to remove them. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri"



Another response from One World Technologies (reps name was redacted) as stated in Garage Journal forum. And the followup question was "What IS the reverse torque":

"The impact is not designed to remove lug nuts. The reverse torque is less than forward torque.

Best regards,

There is not a revers (sic) torque rating available. The forward is the torque listed in the manual. The unit is not designed to remove lug nuts, once they are on and the tire spins during driving they can get a little tighter and over time can get rusty and the unit may or may not remove the lug nut die (sic) to those variables."

i dont know if its a mistake or not, but Ryobi has some of the brushless version with the extra batteries for the same price as the non brushless ones in the OP https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI...807605-_-N

Ah, so there does seem to be some legitimate confusion. Personally, I have a really hard time believing that an impact wrench was designed for woodworking instead of automotive use. An impact driver, sure - but not an impact wrench.

I mean, how small of a market would there be for an impact wrench not intended for mechanics...

Agree, this is how you screw up a decent return policy for everyone else.

Yeah and in Massachusetts a 12 year old can marry a 60 year old if they have a note from their parents. Just because there aren't specific rules against something doesn't make it less scummy.
You're great at finding proportional analogies that help to elucidate your position... Next time the cops run into a pedophile using this loophole to perpetuate his misdeeds, they'll probably throw out the inverse of your analogy to salvage a moral victory... They'll be like "Ya see man, what you're doing to her is a lot like this thing that people do to the Home Depot..."

Thanks. If you buy a tool off eBay can you warranty it? I have Ryobi now and I'm on my 6 battery so I'm done with them
U might want to contact customer service to see if they can help. They stand behind their tools. Just a thought. Good luck either way.

The $9.97 Ridgid "work light" is the saddest little light I've seen. I will keep them for power outages, but the light output is pretty sad considering how much space they take up. Your average two AA battery LED flashlight for a couple dollars is going to be 4-5x as bright and light 4-5x the area this Ridgid does.
