Found this deal on Lowe's. I've been looking for this single tool set for a while.

I have this tool and love it. I've heard others complain about lack of power, but I've experienced no problems.

I purchased this last week. While I liked the fact that it combines the 1/4 and 1/2 driver. I tried to take off the lug nut on my Honda CRV, it couldn't do it. I used my Ridgid 1/2 impact, that took it off with no problem. I wonder if it's because the Bosch battery 2-Ah is the culprit for the lack of power. I am going to return it today.

I have this thing before and it was weak. The battery is not the problem.
Also have the brushless Freak (original version) and that version is great.

It's primarily an impact driver with a bonus to use the 1/2 square drive. It's on par with other 1/4" impact drivers and way beneath most 1/2 impact wrenches.

It is not an impact wrench.

There's a couple of models of this. OP shared a 1600 in-lb. There's also a 1800 in-lb model. I have the 1800 in-lb model and can remove the 110 ft-lb torque lug nuts off my crossover.

Yeah, I believe it has the CORE18v battery and brushless motor, with the model number GDX18V-1800CB15. i have this and it's great. It's $200 at Lowes, but Amazon had a Bosch promotion last fall when I bought it for $129.
