portable, powerful, long battery life.
Use to remove lug nuts when rotating and changing tires/wheels spring and fall. Has more power than 120 volt impact wrench I was using. No need for power cords or air hose and compressor.

Good product, but should be better for the money
I bought this product after buying a 1/4" impact and drill combo so that my batteries would interchange. It would be nice to include a little rubber or poly urethane boot to protect the nose of the impact. I'm not sure how they achieved anywhere near 500ft lbs with this tool, because I can't even achieve over 150 with it, but I knew going in that the number was too high to be true.
As for the battery, Really poor design on the locking mechanism. I've already had one fail and lock the battery on the tool where I could not release and remove it without a huge fight. The pin that hold the latch is made from weak plastic. Once it breaks, the fight begins. When you push the red button to release it, you'll incur sympathetic movement from the mechanism enough to prevent full release of the latch. The cure for me was to drill out the entire latch where the plastic rod goes and insert a metal rod in its place. I don't understand why I'm the one that has to engineer this stuff properly after paying such good money.
