If this was the 1/2" or 3/8" Sub compact impact wrench I would be all over it.

I bought one about 11 months ago for 149$. This is a good tool, plenty of torque. I did several front end suspension rebuilds and brake jobs on one charge. The 4a battery lasts a long time! I was very surprised how much work it did before needing a recharge. Highly recommended.

make sure you can deal with the full size battery on the subcompacts. It kinda ruins the compact size of the imapct wrench.

A decent deal, Be aware of the size from anvil to the back is 7.7", the biggest among brands in the similar torque range.
Dewalt DCF894's 6.95", Milwaukee M18 Gen1's 6.7" and Gen II's 6", Makita XWT17/18's 6.7".

I think the length in that direction is very critical in narrow space when working on cars.

The measurement of how much torque the tool is putting on the bolt you are trying to tighten.

Many impact wrenches have more power in reverse. In this case it can use up to 620 ft/lbs of torque to loosen the bolt and 485 ft/lbs to tighten.

I bought the subcompact a little while back (bare tool in store) Had to return it. Couldn't even loosen my lug nuts, let alone large suspension items. The size was right to get into tight spaces, even with a 4ah battery, but doesn't do much good if it can't break the bolts loose…

Well if the subcompact impact wrench doesn't loosen the lug nuts on my truck then it gets returned, the youtbe videos seem to show at least 225 ft pounds of loosening torque. I already have the 1/2" x4 impact wrench and the x5 1/2" impact wrench and they are great, I just want the smaller size for close quarters.

The unit is actually foot * lbs, looks like HD got their units wrong in the listing. Generally speaking, torque is rotational force, where the common American unit, ft-lbs or lbf-ft, can be thought of as the amount of pounds of force one would have to exert on a bar one foot away from the object you're applying the force to. I always think of how much force I could exert on a breaker bar, probably around 150lbs. At 2 feet, that's 300 ft-lbs, but that's also with a lot of exertion, so the impact wrench is definitely the way to go.

Octane branding is gone which is why these Octane branded tools are getting price reductions. This kit includes one of the newer line of batteries that look/feel cheaper and lack the rubber bumpers. (But at least all the new batteries appear to offer LSA - even when purchased separately.)

But your point on power still stands, this kit includes the standard R87004 4ah battery instead of the R840040 MAX Output 4ah battery that would seem to replace the old Octane battery - seems a strange choice for this tool.
