This deal is $12 cheaper than a similar front page deal a month ago - and that one only had a 4aH battery

FYI this is for the mid torque impact, 2861-20. The previous deal was for the high torque model, 2767-20. Still not a bad deal with a 5.0ah battery. The mid torque is a lot lighter and can bust loose most nuts. But there's always that stubborn one that requires the high torque.
If you can't break lug nuts free with this wrench, you're doing something wrong like using little 1.5ah batteries, dead batts, too many extensions/adapters, have it in forward gear, forgetting to pull the trigger, etc.
I'm in California, so minimal rust issues, but the mid-torque model has no issue taking off properly torqued lug nuts on my BMWs. I have yet to run into a situation where it couldn't break loose a bolt or lug nut. I've replaced all suspension components on my cars so far with it.

The high-torque is really too bulky to use most of the time. Unless you're swapping crank shafts on engines all the time, or work at a tire shop and deal with over torqued lug nuts or rusty ones, it's not very useful. The high-torque is not worth more money in my view, simply because you end up paying for the extra torque with bulk.

This price seems okish, personally I would pass unless I absolutely need a wrench now, but it's not outrageous either. I paid $169 for the mid-torque + battery combo at international tool about a year ago. I actually like the pin detent more too. Definitely feels more secure, and it's easy to use if you keep an allen wrench handy.

Blazing deal if this was the high torque. I find the mid to mostly be in no man's land. Usually most of the regular impact wrenches can take care of everything the mid torque could but there are a few situations where the high torque would be needed that mid cant handle. I'm not wishing for the mid torque if a regular impact wrench isn't enough....I'm going straight to the high torque.

I have this and like it very much. Do suspension, braking, lug nuts and more. Haven't run into anything it can't handle.

Only thing you may want to skip this for 2767-20 is would be balancer bolts. The mid may have problems with those.

That's exactly why I wanted the mid torque, to completely replace an air impact.

Are you able to take off lug nuts without breaking them first? That's my biggest hesitation with the mid-torque model, after I saw a few product reviews with guys saying it struggles with breaking lose lug nuts

I live in the rust belt, so it's probably a bit different, but I certainly think the high torque is worth it if you're really working on cars. Like you said though, it is bulky, mostly in weight. I can't imagine using it all of the time. If I was only going to own one, it'd probably be the mid torque.

I bought both high torque and mid torque just a couple weeks ago on the Zoro deal OP linked, except I had a 25% off coupon. I was just removing a subframe on a Toyota and used my old Craftsman 19.2 impact which didn't have enough power to remove those bolts. I should have tried the M18 mid torque, but didn't think about it and jumped straight to the high torque. It made it look easy! I expect my long breaker bars to see a lot less use now.

This mid-torque is a lot more compact than the high torque one, and can handle most, but not all automotive applications. Not sure if this is a great price though

I live in the rust belt and my m12 stubby can handle lug nuts, axle retaining nuts, strut bolts and more. I cant imagine the mid torque struggling to peel off lug nuts unless ur talking about a big rig

How does this compare to octane rigid impact in terms of size and weight? Thanks.

If you're already invested in Ridgid and have octane batteries then I would recommend the octane impact. The combo kit at Home Depot is $150 with a 4ah(non-octane) battery. It's 650ftlbs with the octane battery And was more than enough to do the whole suspension change on mustang over the winter.
