      +1

      The only reason nobody talks about Bosch in the US is because their tools aren’t widely available.

    Just go Parkside because everything else is prohibitively expensive unless you’re in a trade and do it for a living. Ryobi is the best for weekenders in the US, DeWalt is has the best sales and availability of the more professional tier brands, Milwaukee is the best if you’re in a specific trade becsusr they have the most specialized tools.

    My sawzall let out the last magic smoke a month ago, my second impact has started smoking, and my batteries are about 6 years old. All DeWalt but not their XR stuff. Was hoping to hear they were trash and something else was significantly better. The impact usually can't even take off lug nuts unless it has the bigger battery pack which are now ~$100 a pop, the same battery can only cut through 3 pieces of exhaust tubing before it needs a recharge with new Lenox metal blades.

      I bought the Atomic brushless compact sawzall the other day, seems to work really well with my little 2ah batteries so far. Was cutting up some rotted out fencing and it ripped through the 2x4 stringers and still showed 3/3 bars on the battery after about 20 cuts.

      Oh yeah also, the old DeWalt impacts sucked but the new brushless ones are kickass and Lowes/HD usually do a Black Friday thing where you can get the impact for free if you buy a $200 battery kit (XR 6.0+4.0 and a charger iirc), sounds like you need a battery upgrade anyway so it might be worth looking into. I'm planning on doing that myself this year since I need both the impact and the batts.

    Makita is basically the Toyota of the tool world, and the best option for general heavy duty/trade needs.

            People who use power tools for a living can burn through a couple batteries a day, so they will have several batteries charged and ready and will use them with whatever tool they are primarily using them with that day. If I have, for example, a dewalt impact and a milfricky sawzall, I dont want to have to have to worry about bringing and charging 4 spare batteries, two for each brand, I'd rather bring 2 spare batteries that share the same charging infrastructure and tool interface. That way I'm not taking up space in my box with batteries that I might not even use. Hope this helps

            You would be moronic for not just buying a DeWalt sawzall and impact since all of the brands offer all of the main tools you need.

            Or, you could buy that generic battery that isn’t even that much cheaper than OE batteries and doesn’t work properly on high demand tools.

I'd love to use Milwaukee impacts and drills and dewalt reciprocating saws and grinders because that is what each vendor does best. That is why the concept of a universal battery is so appealing.

    Who makes the best impact driver and why

    • 4 weeks ago
      Kevin Van Dam

      Pick a color

      Every major brand has a flagship brushless impact driver that is like 1800-2400in-lbs and has multiple speed and power settings. Any speed difference will vary depending on the size and type of fastener so all the brands come out super close.

      It’s not really a power thing because as you hit >2000in-lbs with an impact driver, it becomes hard to use on medium size screws and smaller stuff is out of the question.

      Dewalt has been burning people's shit to the ground with their latest batches of batteries, inverters, and chargers. Milwaukee M18 series tools still reign supreme for the class.

      If you can't afford Milwaukee, just buy Harbor Freight shit until you can. Best advice I can ever give.

      >just buy Bauer which is worse than Ryobi with a worse warranty but ends up costing more because they don’t have the free tool and battery deals

        Cry all you fricking want about your bad experiences. The Bauer Driver can output more torque than a shitty Ryobi and can be discarded easily when it shits out in a couple years. You're a fricking moron if you compromise and buy a budget tier tool like a Ryobi because it'll "last longer" when it can't even torque a lugnut to spec.

        Harbor Freight is fricking fine for an entry level hobby mechanic. If you're doing the work professionally and you aren't using Milwaukee, you're a moron. You're a double moron if you're a prpfessional or a serious enthusiast and don't have air tools - of which, you're a moron for not buying Harbor Freight unless you can justify Ingersoll-Rand.

I work in the trades and it too is mostly dominated by red and black/yellow. Ryobi is what they buy their little kids.

        I probably would've gone red myself, but yellow goes on way better sales and I can't justify the extra cost for my relatively light-duty use, plus I just like Lowe's way more than Home Depot and the blue store doesn't sell the red tools.

    I'm a DIY hobbyist mechanic and for a while ryobi was my go-to but I fully switched to milwaukee for the beautiful stubby 3/8 that handles pretty much any job I throw at it, besides the tough shit I need a 1/2 for. All you need is a 3/8 stubby and maybe their electric ratchet and you're golden, the M12 batteries are slim and not too bulky, which is mainly why I switched to milwaukee, just love the small form factors of their tools and batteries

      Terrible advice from another kid who has done a couple of oil changes and went M12 Fuel because he wanted to be in the cool kid’s club without spending the money on 18V.

      The M12 stubby, you can do all of the same shit with an impact driver and a socket adapter and it’s not strong enough to do anything you can’t remove by hand. And then when you do more than a couple oil changes and run into an axle nut that doesn’t want to move, have fun when you realize your cool kid M12 Fuel tools will never come anywhere close to getting the job done, and that’s the reason most people buy an impact wrench in the first place.

      Not to mention if you ever do any work beyond oil changes and getting your Packout foam inserts cut perfectly, 12V is shit for any real drilling or cutting. Those batteries get hot fast when you stick a hole saw on the 12V drill.

        I take dually lug nuts off with my m12 stubby, crank pulley bolts sometimes work not always, that's what the half inch is for
        you're not putting any real torque through a 1/4in hex socket adapter also that's gonna make your tool long as hell and not fit anywhere tight

        • 3 weeks ago
          Kevin Van Dam

          Git decent socket adapters, you will have like 80% the power and maybe 1” more length on fhe impact driver compared to the stubby. My impact driver will do freshly torqued 100ft-lb lug nuts just like the stubby.

          Patrician move is to start with an 18V drill + impact driver kit because you’re a redditor unboxer if you have a Fuel stubby and ratchet but no drill. And then get down on an 18V mid torque 1/2” because they’re so compact now and will actually have power when you need it and that will cover all but the most rusted stubborn automotive stuff.

          Nobody shills the 12V impact as “babby’s first and only impact wrench” unless they haven’t used anything else.

            moronic. It’s a compact with a purpose. It does stuff you could do with an impact driver. It won’t do stuff that is hard to do by hand, which is why Anon’s first ugga dugga should not be a 12V stubby and that money is much better spent on a Ryobi 18V mid torque.

            The stubbies really aren’t mich smaller than an impact driver and a socket adapter. And if the impact doesn’t fit, use hand tools. Meanwhile if you run into a bolt with lots of space but it’s too tight for your super cool M12 Fuel tool and hand tools won’t do it either, then you’re dead in the water until your smart friend comes over with his Ryobi HP 1/2” because he bought the tool he needed first rather than the tool he thought looked cool.

            I'd almost be OK with Ryobi except I can't fricking stand their stupid '90s battery design, the dildo sticking out of them makes them way more of a pain in the ass to put in a toolbag or especially a pouch. Also there's barely a price difference between them and DeWalt if you can wait for sales, like right now the DeWalt compact sawzall is only $10 more than the Ryobi, and you can get DeWalt stuff everywhere instead of being limited to HD.

            Oh and the M12… I dont think they get compared head to head because of the voltage difference, even though they’re about the same size. Too lazy to search more, although they had about the same specs advertised by TTI, the parent company.

            That stubby impact is straight because I can stick the 18V battery straight on my circular saw and cut lumber or on my high torque 1/2” and remove a crusty water heater anode.

            One of the main problems with ryobi is that the tools aren’t durable, their casings aren’t as strong.
            One drop onto the battery and it shatters, this is a well known issue.

            Also I just took apart one of the ryobi 40v packs I had and it had 1500mah 18650s in it, that’s pathetic, the Milwaukee tools use Samsung 3000mah cells inside which is basically double the battery in the same space.

          • 3 weeks ago
            Kevin Van Dam

            You realize that those 1500mAh cells were used in basically everybody’s packs a few years ago, right? And they still use them? And there’s a tradeoff between current output and capacity, right? A 5x 1500mAh 18650 pack will put out far more power than a 5x 3000mAh 18650 pack. Also the 3.0Ah pack needs to charge a lot slower.

            it's not 2015 moron, a 3000mah cell puts out 30A now, battery tech advanced, ryobi is just cheap and uses cheap cells to maintain profit margins

            Nobody uses 3000mAh 18650s in 3.0Ah packs, and there’s a reason for that. They’re fine for flashlights drawing an amp, but won’t last long if you stick em on a circular saw.

            Also the pack anon pulled apart because it’s dead is probably from 2015.

            >yes it is
            If you consider 1” longer as HUGE, I understand, you’re trying to make all 4” work.

            And you’re arguing something I never said. If you buy the 12V stubby after you have a bigger impact and you’re set on the main 18V tools, that’s the way to go. It’s the numerous Fuel fanbois with an unused stubby and high speed ratchet in a packout container with perfectly cut foam that has never seen a spot of grease. And then they say “Well it removes the lug nuts on my Golf that I just recently torqued to 80ft-lbs so it’s good enough for anything somebody would want to do with automotive work!” and that’s horrible advice for somebody who is trying to up their wrenching game and has $300 to spend on their first couple power tools.

            The one they did was the 3.0 M12 packs, and they charge real slow and don’t have any balls and have a 1-year shorter warranty than the 3.0Ah packs with 6x 1500mAh 18650s. They don’t sell many of them, the 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5Ah CP packs are much more common.

            Why would anybody mislead and lie on the internet? Why do you think the 3.0CP packs are so much larger than the 2.0 packs? Milwaukee and DeWalt don’t even use 3000mAh 18650s in their 6.0 packs. Makita might be the only one among the main contractor grade stuff who uses 3000mAh 18650s in a normal 10-cell pack, and it has lower peak performance than the 3.0-5.0Ah packs. They all use 21700 cells for 5-cell 3.0Ah and 4.0Ah packs.

            Do they even make the 3.0Ah 3-cell pack anymore? They probably had to discontinue the thing after realizing what a horrible idea was just like when they tried to lower the parts count in the 2767 Fuel impact and they were all breaking. You’re probably buying NOS if you find one in a kit.

      Terrible advice from another kid who has done a couple of oil changes and went M12 Fuel because he wanted to be in the cool kid’s club without spending the money on 18V.

      The M12 stubby, you can do all of the same shit with an impact driver and a socket adapter and it’s not strong enough to do anything you can’t remove by hand. And then when you do more than a couple oil changes and run into an axle nut that doesn’t want to move, have fun when you realize your cool kid M12 Fuel tools will never come anywhere close to getting the job done, and that’s the reason most people buy an impact wrench in the first place.

      Not to mention if you ever do any work beyond oil changes and getting your Packout foam inserts cut perfectly, 12V is shit for any real drilling or cutting. Those batteries get hot fast when you stick a hole saw on the 12V drill.

      Also the stubby impact can’t even reliably remove lug nuts unless they were freshly installed by an autist with a torque wrench in the past few months. They’re useless when you get a pickup truck with dirty studs straight out of a tire shop where they slammed the wheels on with air tools.

        Well yeah I know it has it's limitations and I've searched around before I switched to M12 what jobs it can handle, a stubby with a 6ah battery is plenty enough for my brake jobs and any suspension work I've done so far, I still have my ryobi 1/2 that does the trick, along with axle nuts, etc. I know what it's good and what it sucks with, never said it can tackle anything

        I'm not doing intensive mechanic work here so the compactness of the M12 tools works fine for me and hasn't let me down yet.

      Lame if true. I warranties a Ryobi battery that was a year or two old recently with no receipt or registration and they sent me a new one.

      And then as soon as I got the new one, I cracked open the tamper evidence plug and was able to recover the cell that went a little too low and the dead battery is almost as good as new.
