I've had some time with this Impact Wrench now and so far its been amazing. My old pneumatic impact gun is finally showing its age and is struggling to remove lug nuts on my truck that are hand torqued to 140 ft-lbs. This M18 FUEL cordless beast features class leading 1400 ft-lbs of reverse nut busting awesomeness. Since I already have a lot of Milwaukee M18 tools I purchased this as a bare tool which does not come with batteries or a charger.
One feature that I found especially handy is "Bolt Removal Mode" where you can hold the trigger full open and the gun automatically reduces speed to 750RPM once the nut/bolt has been broken loose so it doesn't fly out of the socket once fully loosened. This is a feature I didn't even know I needed until I used it!
