Default Milwaukee 18V Torque Wrench $259

I normally don't post stuff like this, but this is an awesome tool for the DIYer at a price I have never seen before. I have had one for several years and it will so anything most air wrenches will do. It is pretty light despite its size, and even has a low power switch to drop max torque to 100 so you do not overtorque stuff.

Nice tool, nice price.

For anyone still just using air, these are great to have around. I'm especially partial to my little 3/8" drive one, which does about 150 ft-lbs and is small and light, when I don't need to do any heavy lifting. You really only need 2 batteries and a charger, then you can start buying bare tools.

Another good option is Lowe's 24V line. I have their 1/2" impact wrench. It's 50 ft-lbs less than the Milwaukee 18V, but it's brushless, still quite powerful and only $200. I've been very happy with it.

I'm beginning to regret going full Milwaukee. They were the only brushless type available at the time, but I'm starting to see why AvE calls them willfawkyee. The 3/8 M18 Fuel doesn't always respond to trigger pulls (yes the directional switch is fully seated, I habitually tap it before hitting the trigger) and an M12 rotary tool I just bought lasted 30mins before frying. Luckily it died in the on position (will not respond to any buttons/speed change). The M12 3/8 ratchet is weak af too.


I wish Dewalt had all their current stuff available when I started buying. I am still happy with the Milwaukee overall.

Interesting. I have the bigger 1/2 one and it is flawless. Battery lasts seemingly forever and it works all the time. It can even rip off staked and rusted axle nuts...

The other Milwaukee tools I've used extensively recently, heat gun and angle grinder, have all been super durable and robust.

Cannot say that about my Ryobi plug in drill, which is now toast after being my primary tool for grinding down the rear subframe and RTAB pocket undercoating...

I have all milwaukee, over 20 tools 12 and 18V, and have not had any issues yet. But I am not a professional. Just DIY auto and property maintenance. Some are over 5 years old.

The Ryobi stuff is cheap and offers great selection. If kobalt builds up its selection it could be worth looking at. I have not followed Dewalt closely in a few years. The mechanic brands like snap on and ir don't offer enough of the property maintenance tools I need but are probably the best mechanic tools although expensive.

I have a 12v dewalt impact and love it. Going to purchase a 20v or whatever the bigger one is, I'm a dewalt guy and have used them for 15 years. Electric impacts are the bomb

My 1/2" M18 Fuel is perfect. I have 4 M18 Fuel tools and 4 of the M12 line. Only two give me issues.

Dewalt now has a line with 60V batteries. They are making large tools that are battery powered and run off two 60V batteries (120V cordless tools). I don't believe they have any impact wrenches in the line yet. But for property maintenance, you should check them out. Flexvolt 60/120 line.

I like the Kobalt 24V line. They were one of the few that had a dedicated 3/8" drive small impact wrench (no adaptor needed) and the specs on the tools are impressive for the price. It's annoying that certain tools are only sold as kits. I have 3 batteries and 2 chargers. I have a big impact and a small one. I would buy their drill if they sold the bare tool, but I'm not buying it in a kit with another battery and charger, which is the only way they sell it.

They also had a sweet shop light that ran off the 24V batteries, and they discontinued it for some reason. I would've bought that too. Good tools, poor decision making with the product line.
