A better deal for the same price included Octane batteries for more torque.

EDIT:

Appears Home Depot recently discontinued the above kit, so OP's kit appears to be the only one available now.

The above deal still works if you add the 2x3AH battery kit to your cart and then and then pick the impact wrench as the free tool. Is the 4AH battery one of the newer Bluetooth ones or the older standard ones?

E: The hell, that promo was running through may and now the kit is OOS?

The 2x Octane batteries are out of stock online, may come back or they may be dead. I have several to return from my kits purchased.

How does this tool compare to the Milwaukee Mid-torque impact wrench in power and size?

I think they are quite similar if you look only at the wrenches and not at the broader ecosystem. With the Octane batteries, the Ridgid is rated at slightly more breakaway torque (Ridgid 620 ft-lbs vs. Milwaukee 600 ft-lbs) but the Ridgid is about 1/2" to 3/4" longer (could be significant depending on what you work on). It's a personal choice whether the Ridgid's lower price, LSA, and (marginally) higher power rating makes for a better deal than the Milwaukee's compactness, 18V tool selection, and reputation for quality. I asked a similar question on Reddit and a user there shared his personal experience with how powerful the Ridgid is: https://www.reddit.com/r/Tools/comments/elduwa/ridgid_octane_impact_wrench/fdhb67z/

If the price for each was the same, I'd go Milwaukee since compactness is more important than an additional 20 ft-lbs of torque for working on modern cars. But I bought the Ridgid because it is quite a bit cheaper, especially factoring in the LSA you get for batteries. Furthermore, the nice Milwaukee ecosystem isn't really relevant for me since I'm a home user with no need to replace my corded tablesaw, router, circular saw, jigsaw or sanders with cordless -- I just needed an impact wrench.

In practice, I haven't run into any issues with the Ridgid -- it has so much torque, which is great when you need to use wobble extensions/U-joints for access (these usually sap torque). Each time I've used the Ridgid impact wrench, I wonder why I didn't buy it sooner!

This is better if size isn't an issue.

The M12 fuel stubby impact wrench is apparently amazeballs though. I can't justify getting the fuel first though, when you consider the LSA and battery LSA (I tend to beat the hell out of batteries).

Eventually you end up getting multiple different brands anyway, that's why 3rd printers created battery adapters.

Have a cheaper/better source for battery adapters than eBay?

Not other than taking apart the type of battery you're adapting to and fabbing your own fit. With a bit of work you can pretty easily find dead battery packs and then it's just a matter of jimmying together a wiring harness.

Great review and I plan on buying this as well. I have Milwaukee drill and driver (1/4), but the impact tools are so much more expensive. This tool is powerful based on many reviews and great for homeowner stuff...

Is this their top of line?

I was holding out to pickup a used Makita XWTO4Z or XWTO8Z since I have a couple of 5Ah batteries.

What is the better option for homeowner use and how long would this battery last before needing a charge?
