What size battery did you use? It breaks bolts fine. Not sure why some folks say it doesn't break lug nuts.
I have the 4ah battery.

I think the 1/2 version of this is 300/350lbs? It could barely get lug nuts off let one anything when doing a brake/rotor change. I ended up back with the breaker bar instead of the Ryobi impact.
If your 300 ft-lbs rated wrench didn't work, you either had a dud, were using too small or too weak of a battery, or had severely overtorqued and corroded lugs.

As dumb as a box of rocks about this stuff. Please assist. Have a pricey Snapper Pro zero turn, pro model and have an old HF corded 1/2" impact wrench currently using. What would I need akin to this listed wrench etc.to be more than adequate (not great overkill) to get the job done with removing/installing the 3 blades on the mower deck, and what am I likely gonna have to pay for it via SD at some point, keeping my eyes open?
Check the torque specs for those blades, but I'd guess they're in the 50-100 ft-lbs range for which this wrench should be good unless they're seriously corroded or were over-torqued when installed. However, depending on the size of that nut, you might find it difficult to buy a large enough impact socket in 3/8" drive and it's best to avoid adapters - so for that job I'd suggest anybody's run-of-the-mill 1/2" model. And if that's all your using it for, going with Harbor Freight should be fine.

Watch some reviews before you buy this. It doesn't have enough power to remove most lug bolts.

Definitely not corroded or any issues with the car. Maybe the torque wrench was a dud? I don't know... Either way the Makita obviously blows this out of the water

My car's lugs get torqued to 150 ft lbs and the 1/2" Ryobi impact takes them off easily. I like that the 1/2" Ryobi has three settings so I can use it to lightly install lugs when reinstalling, before tightening them with a torque wrench.

I think the 3/8" impact doesn't have a lot of value if you already have a 1/2" model. I don't often find that I need something smaller than the 1/2", and if necessary the 1/2" can be adjusted to deliver lower torque.

Yeah, a friend suggested that I stay w/ a 1/2" to avoid an adapter for the current HF socket I have (5/8", I believe, maybe larger---it was a gift from the friend years & years ago). Thank you for your kind consideration.

Maybe you got a defective one? I can take 130ftlb lugs off with just the P239 driver. I don't have to grab the impact wrench hardly at all.

I have this 3/8 inch impact (Factory Blemish from Direct Tool Outlet) and I was able to remove lug nuts and caliper bolts on my Corolla without any issue. I agree this is not the strongest tool and I plan on buying the 1/2 inch Ryobi impact for tougher jobs. I would not expect this to be able to be of much use for heavier jobs like suspension or for trucks. Home Depot has a good return policy if you are on the fence. Direct Factory Outlet charges return shipping and restocking fees if I remember correctly. I hope this is helpful to someone.

There are additional deals here is someone is looking for something other than a 3/8 impact:

I don't have a need to take off lug nuts or caliper bolts anymore... I'm too old to be jacking up cars and lying on my back for hours on end 😅 Those days are behind me.

Therefore, I was on the fence about this tool...but decided to purchase it because I thought of all the times I pulled out my ratchet set over the last year and banged up my knuckles doing other, smaller, jobs.

Just because it's not ripping through lugs like butter doesn't mean it's not a valuable tool to have around 👍

Like a wise person told me - any tool is super useful when you need it.

the impact wrench is where ryobi is lagging behind compared to their competitors.

they just simply dont have enough power to compete with the competition. Everything else though ryobi has stuff that is up to par if not exceed other expensive brands.

a '1/2 version of this is 300/350lbs' SHOULD be able to loosen 80-90 ft/lbs lugs that are on many passenger vehicles. How many ft/lbs lugs on yours?

They are a lot cheaper in price. You kinda get what you pay for but they are not bad tools for the consumer who only need to use it a few times a year.

If your lug nuts were on that tight, how would you manage to change your flat tire? Never mind that this tool isn't as powerful as other models, but you should check your torque values!

I have the regular 1/4" impact driver and I was looking at getting a wrench too, I have an 88 VW Cabriolet, it's not a large car and there's not many bolts that should be torqued very tightly. I'm sure the 3/8" would be plenty to do all but the axle nuts on that car, and I just borrow my dads high torque pneumatic 1/2" for those.
He's actually used the 1/4" Ryobi at work (he's a Ford tech Mechanic) and said it worked awesome. And he was only using the 1.5Ah battery, so I'm sure as long as you don't expect $500 impact wrench amounts of torque out of these, they're well worth the money and will get most small to medium sized fasteners and bolts loosened up.

This small impact wrench powerful enough for small cars and trucks for taking lug nuts on and off, it's torque power max 220lb, plenty of power for changing tires.
