Bought the kobalt 24v at lowes a few weeks back.

$149 with bag charger and battery also.

I would recommend it, rebuilt a suspension with ease so far.

Find a Milwaukee M18 mid-torque reconditioned and some Chinese batteries. I paid about your budget and removed the brakes from my E450 without sweat, just noise. Caliper brackets are torqued to 195ft-lbs. Lug nuts at 135ft-lbs came off instantly.

I have a 1/4” M12 that takes care of a lot of driving tasks that don’t need brute force.

get the one you are interested in (battery)

if you want dewalt tools get a dewalt.. etc etc.

also if you get the super biggest one they are very heavy and fatiguing for more than lug nuts.

The main reason I'm interested in one now is, I've got some severely rusted nuts holding on to the old rider mower blades. LOL

It'll also come in handy for other needs down the road I'm sure.

Buy once, cry once. https://www.milwaukeetool.com/Products/Power-Tools/Fastening/Impact-Wrenches/2767-20

I have a Milwaukee 2767-20 that has 1450 ft lbs of breakaway torque. I daresay it will take apart ANYTHING on a car or light truck. I've done crank bolts off in 20 seconds; makes light work of a harmonic balancer change out. It'll eat Makitas and Kobalts for lunch without breaking a sweat. Wish I'd had it 20 years ago.

It will give you self confidence working on a car or light truck.

Depends how much torque you need. Ryobi had a basic one, charger battery and impact was about $100 for 350 foot pounds. There is a decent deal on a Rigid, their Octane is about 620 foot pounds and around $150 when on sale. If you want to go nut busting, there's the Milwaukee 2767 which is 1400 foot pounds in reverse and typically about $250 but there's deals occasionally where they throw in a battery or discount it slightly, got mine with a battery and on sale for $211. The 620 should be good for most car work.

The one below is just the 2 amp hour battery, the 4 is supposed to be better and I'm not sure you will get the 620 foot pounds out it if just using the 2 amp hour battery. $180 for the drill and impact driver plus 2 batteries and charger.

Out of stock now but they have this deal all the time, just have to wait for it. $150 for the impact driver, 4 amp hour battery and charger.

Looks like Milwaukee has some competition, there's a Ridgid out there now with 1500 foot pounds, weighs 6.3 pounds instead of 5.9 of the Milwaukee so it's heavier. Still the list price at $229 is a little lower than Milwaukee and they do the normal lifetime warranty.

I agree with the Milwaukee brushless style tools. Top notch. We have used everything over the years at work including Makita,Dewalt,Bosch....Milwaukee is the best so far except for hammer drills. Hilti is the only hammer drill worth buying.

Before you buy consider your cordless tool needs over the next few years and buy the brand that best suits you. I have gone with Milwaukee M18 and have several tools and OPE and vacuum, lights.

But Dewalt makes good tools and so do other companies. The batteries can be expensive. I have just started to try some aftermarket batteries for Milwaukee and Ryobi. Time will tell.

But the way to buy is bare tool only.

I have been beating on my Ridgid 18 volt drill and impact driver every day in a shop environment for 4 years now. Absolutely zero complaints, batteries still even perform close to new. I added the half inch impact gun 2 and change years ago, its rare now that my 1/2 inch air impact gets used. Its a great impact gun. Waiting for the 3/8 gun to make its way into stores.
