Milwaukee M18 Mid-torque Gen2 1/2 inch Impact wrench with Boot, hackable $159.8

This is actually a better deal than recent bare M18 mid-torque gen2 impact if you want the boot. These boots are awesome - fit well and protect well. As with the rest of "hackable" deals, the battery is just an unwanted overpriced filler that you would order and return for refund individually. This overpriced item actually reduces the price of the wanted item by $89.20 down to $159.80+tax for the tool+boot.
So order both, receive both, return battery for refund.

This deal is the Impact Wrench Gen 2. Used mostly by a mechanic. Does have plenty of other use's can drive long thicker Lag screws.

Gen 3 would be a Impact Driver. Meant to drive mostly screws small lags.

If your looking to take off tires etc get this one this deal posted. This is just about all you would need for a car to do any work. The High Impact Wrench is huge and heavy compared to this one. Unless your working on something that's really old and rust you might need the High Impact. I barley use my High Torque Impact.

I would stay away from the M18 Compact Impact Wrench with only 250 ft-lbs of nut-busting torque. The Mid Torque has 650 ft-lbs of nut-busting torque and is not much larger than Compact. Unless some reason you need it for the size etc but I would look into the M12 Stubby line at that point.

If you add the 5.0ah battery to the cart, you can return the battery separately for $89.20 and the cost of the tool is only $159.80.

The boot is just a protective cover, but lots of professional mechanics like having them.

I paid $134 + tax for the gen 2 mid torque, after hack.
I wouldn't pay $26 for a rubber boot.

Believe the main draw is to be able to remove it and wash grease/oil/crud off, whereas washing the impact itself takes a bit more care.

Would you pay less than $10 for the boot? My Honey App is offering bonus points worth $16.70 for the impact (battery purchase not required for Bonus Honey points). YMMV.
I've had great success with Honey, over $350 claimed GC's so far this year.

Great deal IMHO. I agree that the boot is a bit costly for what it is but it protects the tool and I prefer to keep my hand and power tools in the best condition possible. Thanks OP!

Can Honey be used in conjunction with coupon codes, or is it 1 or the other?

Just what I needed to see today 😂. In for one. Replacing the last gen mid torque that I use at work. Now I can keep this at home and not have to cart it back and forth.

I've earned Honey points (bonus and regular) in conjunction with !0% off HD issued discounts, for instance. I believe the only thing you need to be careful of, is another competing online discount/coupon source such as retail me not and others like it. Typically one wins out over the other, from my experience. I choose to temporarily disable all others when taking advantage of the Honey Bonus points. Screen shot the bonus points just like I attached previously for proof if needed.

I bought the ridged impact wrench a few weeks ago from an sd for about $160. It was for my dad…should I return it and get him this instead ? He hasn't even opened it yet, I guess that's a good thing, no tire to change out yet
