Home Depot has the Ridgid impact wrench + battery for $149.00

This same tool alone sells without the battery at 179.00

Currently Home Depot is selling the same tool without the battery for $149 so be careful if you order, order the correct one with the battery.

Just be aware, unless the battery comes with a bundle they are only covered by a 3 year limited warranty.
Since this part number is 2 products scabbed together and not a Ridgid kit, the tool will have LSA but the battery will only be 3 yr warranty
The battery is not OCTANE. It's still a good deal. Better than getting no free battery. Tool still works the same either way.

This ...or the Milwaukee mid torque? Thoughts?

I started building a Ridgid collection because of their LSA, so this was a buying point for me.

In terms of specs they are almost comparable this one having slightly more torque. Not trying to be biased but at least that's what the description states & a bit more affordable.

Although if I had to choose my collection again I would not mind Milwaukee; however the Ridgid LSA won me over.

Not entirely true. The octane tools do have more power with octane batteries. 98% of the time it's not necessarily needed, though

Same here. I considered Milwaukee and Makita too, but the LSA was the difference maker.

For this impact, it sure was nice to have when I found someone's drill bit in my tire. Luckily I was at home when the tire went flat so I could use the impact. Took off the lug nuts like nothing.

I'm in the Ryobi ecosystem but their impact wrench isn't that great and they don't have a brushless option yet. Would it make sense for me to grab this rigid and a charger to just have as an impact wrench?

Personally I switched to Ridgid from DeWalt 6 months ago for 2 main reasons: 1) LSA is the obvious one. Can't argue with that. 2) Having tools from multiple brands = Too much clutters and too much hassle managing them.

We are all different. Whatever floats your boat. Just wanted to share.

I've had this since release, 2.5 years ago. I would say they are pretty much the same thing(mid torque and this). I have taken off some honda crank bolts the other week with it with just a regular impact socket. Only time I have not been able to get things out are bolts that either take a 1 inch impact or get cut/broke off.

Here in the rust belt lots of stuff is pretty tough but this is my go to gun has completely replaced my half inch ir air impact.

Hard to beat this deal for battery and impact. That in my mind is where ridgid shines 95% of utility for 1/2 the price.

Although it's not nearly as powerful or nice as this one, I'm happy with my Craftsman 300ft-lb impact wrench. Only thing it wasn't able to remove was a seized-on CV axle from the hub using various pullers. Had to have a shop press it off. I doubt this would have gotten it off. Anyway, I'm curious, what kinds of non-truck or heavy equipment applications call for more than 300 ft-lb to get off? Are there cars and SUVs in reasonably good shape that need more? Or is this more for trucks and such, and maybe bragging rights?

Yes I am aware but always great to point out. I bought a bundled kit so I am covered with those 2 batteries.

This is why I am buying it for rotating my tires every 5k miles & when I got to patch the tire when needed.
