Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seaspray It works
It was on my list as a Christmas gift after I had read the reviews,. I'm not disappointed! Used it yesterday to fix my trailer, then loosened 20 lugs on my truck, motorhome and car with no problems. It still has power and was not a fully charged battery when I tried it, might have to sell my breaker bars.

I bought this impact wrench based on the reviews on here. The store with the upside down red triangle had some good sales on, but I have come undone before when I bought a battery powered impact wrench, so I wanted to make sure I got one which could definitely do the lug nuts on my wheels. I bought the impact wrench and then because it had no battery or charger I bought the drill/circular saw/torch combo pack which was $99 so for $250 taxes in I got the impact wrench,drill,saw and torch complete with a battery and charger. Pretty good value to me! When I got back I put the battery on the impact wrench as I thought it might come with a bit of juice in it but it didn't manage to undo the lug nuts. So I stuck it on charge and sure enough once it had enough battery it managed to undo the lug nuts with little bother. I tend to torque my lug nuts to 130lbs and the impact wrench took literally 2-3 seconds to free them up and then they spun right off. For a battery powered impact wrench and a reasonably priced one at that, so far I'm very happy with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by None Bargain if you already have One+ batteries and charger!!!!
90 lb/ft lug nuts on the car took 1 second and 150 lb/ft lugnuts on the new F150 took 2-3 seconds.
Already own some One+ stuff from over the last 10 years and figured for $100 I would return it if it did not do what I needed.
More compact in my hand than I expected too - not much bigger than their 1/4 impact driver! Just heavier due to the bigger hammer in the nose.
Already better than I expected and a cheap way to dip my toe in the water about wanting cordless and electric to replace needing a big new air compressor in my home shop.
Very satisfied with my new purchase - hopefully it holds up to hobbyist automotive use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tuli I love it.
It is hard for me being a disable person to change tires of my wife's SUV. When I bought this with some dough, the sales rep told me if does not work to returned it. I use a p108 battery and it did the job for me. I rotate all 4 tires of both of my vehicles with one battery. I will not know what to do with my favorite tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by utahbob Purchased to use with my rock crawling Jeep.
I had seen some reviews saying that this impact would not remove even 55 ft lb torqued lug nuts. I tested it at the store and felt it would do the job. I got it home and CHARGED the battery, after which I tried it on my Jeep, I keep the steel wheels on my Jeep torqued to 110 ft lbs (with a torque wrench), and it took all four of them off without any hesitation at all. I rotated all 4 tires ( had to loosen and then retorque, torque was too high), then took the wheels off of my wife's Honda to change the brakes, removed and reinstalled all 4 tires without any hesitation at all. That makes a total of 8 tires removed and replaced on one charge and no problems at all with the amount of torque

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Windypointp Works Well
Picked this up because I already have other Ryobi tools, batteries, and charger. Using a fully charged Lithium+ battery (the small version), it easily did a complete tire rotation on my Acura. After I was finished, I took it over to my F150 truck and zipped a couple of the lugs off without any issues (and those are torqued to 150lbs). A lot of the reviews state that this impact will not loosen lugs, I am not encountering that issue. I agree that it's nowhere near as strong as an air tool or some of the new brand name cordless options, but for $100 it's a bargain and a time saver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dieseltech this diesel mechanic is impressed with this gun!
at work I only use snap-on tools including their 18v cordless impact. for home use (mainly for rotating tires) I bought the ryobi impact since I have other ryobi 18v tools for the house. I cant see myself buying another snap on impact for $500. anyways, I worked on my friend's truck at home where I had to take out a locknut that was torqued to 450 ft/lbs.. The ryobi gun broke the 1 7/8" nut free with no problem. I found it amusing that this ryobi gets the job done.
