Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick Works great
I had a nut on my drive shaft yoke that i tried to get off using wrenches, ratchets, and even a breaker bar using both my legs to push with and was still unable to get the nut loose. I bought this impact wrench and took it straight out of the package without charging and it broke the nut loose!!! I have to admit I was skeptical and planned on taking it back even if it worked but was so impressed I decided to keep it. Well worth it's weight in gold!!! I recommend this to anyone and everyone. The only bad thing I have to say is that the battery and charger were not sold with it but I still got a decent deal on the battery and charger. I paid 182 dollars for the impact, battery, and charger total.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ARService 5 stars. No less.
Used daily for the last 5+ years for emergency roadside service. No problems. Fully charged battery will remove most lug nuts. My routine is to break the nuts free with a breaker bar, zip them off with the impact, impact them back on, torque them with a wrench. This tool has handled something like 8,000 tire changes for me in the last 5 years. When it does finally stop working, ill buy another. Gladly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Datsuntech A Real Tool!
I have other brands of cordless impacts, but this is now my go to tool. I picked this up on sale and since I have a whole selection of other Ryobi tools it was a no brainer. With the big battery this tool off axle nuts, and for those who know, It took of a Honda crank bolt. No small feat, It took a good 10-15 seconds but it did come off. Call me impressed!! It also easily will do a complete tire change over on a single battery. Works best with the large battery though. I have rated it 5 stars, especially for the price I payed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weedavey Best purchased tool in a long time
So far so good. I bought this with very low expectations, but desperate to loosen a bolt on my car that I had been working on for over an hour with a breaker bar and hammer with no luck. In about 5 seconds the bolt came loose using this impact wrench. Well worth the investment, plenty of power, I plan on making a lot of good use out of it! I have to admit, I was reluctant at first about buying a battery powered impact vs. air, but for my application and particular experience it worked out extremely well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kristine I was impressed
Around the shop you run into things where you don't want to get out the air hose to use an impact wrench, many times it's just impractical. I picked this up for now and then use for those quick jobs.
I was mildly surprised when this unit took off all the lug nuts that were on an old boat trailer that had seen use in salt water. The wheel bolts were 7/16 and rusty so it was a fair test. This afternoon again working on an old rusty boat trailer we need to move the wheels back on the trailer so to give another work out we used it to loosen the U-bolts that were rusty again it backed off four of the eight u-bolts with no issues the last four came off when we used some heat on the nuts and the impact to spin them off.
On my next engine rebuild I think I'll be using this for the tear down I'll see if it will remove the head bolts.
Granted it doesn't have the brute power of an air powered or plug in the wall impact, but it does have enough power for most small and lighter duty jobs. You power it with a 4 amp hour battery you have a tool that will do a fair bit of work on a charge. Oh everything that was done above was done on a single 4 amp hour battery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frank67 good budget impact wrench
Ryobi P260 is a great budget impact , took off my wheel nuts torqued to 80ft-lbs no problem and just managed to take off an axle nut. Can crush exhaust clamps so it is powerful for most work. Good if you car is not rusted or any seized bolts then you may need something bigger. But for newer rust free car it seems like a good buy. It is also lightweight compared to the bigger ones. This is a good lugnut impact for small cars, something you might keep in your car. Check out the video it works ok on the small battery but for for best performance go with larger battery Ryobi P108.
