They have a few other items for "1/2" off.

As usual DTO $15 shipping to consider. Still cheaper than last week.

I guess DTO isn't the best at math. In my order from last week the 40% sale, the impact is listed as 120$ marked 40% off the 199 regular price. Today the 80$ price is listed as 50% off the 160 regular price. I get marketing, I get "sales" I still hate it. I don't regret buying this previously at 120 as I've needed it for a year. I have several other Ridgid tools, a couple other Ridgid impacts and this is useful when pulling a pinion gear or larger truck lug nuts that someone over torqued.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Deals like these are why I went with Ridgid. Maybe they're not always best (although this tool is their crown jewel and has a legitimate claim to one of the best high torque) but they're always damn good tools and if you're patient enough you can get everything you want at bottom tier tool prices. Definitely cementing itself as the best bang for your buck brand.

A lot of people don't want/can't justify paying for top tier but also don't want cheap garbage. Ridgid is the brand for folks like that. I used to be a fan of Kobalt, but their deals are so sporadic and vary based on location that it can be frustrating. Hercules new brushless line up intrigues me, but until they've proven themselves Ridgid is king in this market. The LSA is just the icing on the cake.
Wished I waited. I bought this in 2022 😔 great price!
Wow, 5 years, good for them. That warranty is apparently new and only applies to certain tools, others are just 90 days.

There's really few problems with LSA, as long as people follow through on the registration. And when the batteries wear out, all batteries eventually do, a simple phone call gets new ones sent on their way.


Factory Blems from DTO can be registered for the LSA. There's even a DTO selection on the registration form for where it was purchased. And even though it says to mail in the receipt, I've always just uploaded it and if the registration hasn't processed in a few weeks, just send them a note asking them to review it and it goes right through.

I passed at 120 because this is just so so heavy. At 80 it's a difficult decision.

I just ordered the mid torque and 2x 6ah batteries for $250 from HD. However this and the battery deal they have is a deal in its own. Shame the mid-torque isn't on sale anymore on DTO.

Hm tough choice. I already invested in Milwaukee M12 fuel set and Makita 18v LXT set. Should I get this or wait for sale on a Makita impact wrench (that will likely never happen)?

I got the MAX 6Ah and 4Ah with charger for $75 @ Depot a while back. Can't decide if the 2x4Ah + 2Ah is better. Still within return period…

Isn't the octane still the highest torque 18V wrench ever?

I guess it is. I don't think I'll ever need that much torque and Makita is a brand I can trust that will last. But at $360.

The new Dewalt high torque passed it up recently. Check out torque test channel on YouTube. You're right about the power, but still doesn't hurt to have it available for this price
