Can it remove lug nuts to change a tire?

Asked by Frank November 5, 2018
6
Answers

I used this one for lug nuts, figuring it has the power even though it's not marketed as an impact WRENCH and it seemed to work. Worked for a few more screwing projects then the internal mechanism broke. Pretty sure it was the abuse of that mechanic job. From now on, only using for screws and low torque socket work. Get the 3/8" tool they sell for mechanics. Use this one for screws.

What is the part number of this tool?? I am looking for the tool only part number and not the kit...

It has two clips on either side of the battery. Just pull them up and the top will slide off but it is not easy to get off.

Died after 6 months of warranty expired
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
We are IT company ,Using impact driver to install small jobs like mounting penel on wall or TV or monitor, no rough use. Warranty expired december 2019 and in 2020 we were close for 3-4 months. Once we start working impact driver was showing flashing light. We check battery is fine, Works with drill/driver. We have another set from porter cable, its old, same 12v battery and still works after 5yrs, no problem at all. Check pic for condition of tool

Milwaukee sub-compact drills are soo small I almost always carry 2 of them, to save time switching between drilling and driving. @1000lbs. torque it doesn't really need more than trigger control, and for the sensitive driving operations I use the 2401-20 1/4 hex compact driver, which has a clutch and only 500rpm and 175 lbs. of torque. This impact driver has the proper torque to do anything without destroying fasteners and bits, without need for a selector switch. If I need more power, I will use a larger, higher voltage drill, with 1600 lbs of torque. I went in to get the"Fuel" impact, saw this one on sale for $80 and got it instead. It has exceeded my expectations, the ones I had for the "Fuel"! I love Milwaukee tools addictively, so I may still get that one, but not because I need it, this one does it all. My first use of this kit was driving 6", 3/8th diameter lags into solid timber with no pre-drilling, just yesterday, for a pan tilt camera mount, and let me just say....!!!! Yowza! The 2462-20 Impact driver is pretty quiet, relative to other impacts I've used, and it's really solid and freaky light, and freaky powerful. The collet must be pulled out for both placing and releasing bits, the only negative feature, say compared to the fuel or even the somewhat venerable 2401-20, which feature auto-load collets that really do work perfectly, just insert the bit and it locks automatically. So that may be a factor for another user looking for a do- it- all drill. But for me, it isn't a problem because I use the Milwaukee 2401-20 at the same time. It's tough to beat two drills, especially when they are toy sized and monster strong.. This is the world's#2 most Awesome sub-compact impact driver, beaten only by the new fuel version, Milwaukee tools are the best! I am a carpenter- handyman, so I use this impact and the 2401-20 compact driver daily to rapidly assemble various fabrications made of wood, like cabinets, decks and fences.

Amazing Impact Driver!! (Even for small a woman!!)
Quality :

The Milwaukee Cordless Impact Driver is amazing! It is lightweight, requires very little pressure to drive a screw in, has a light that shines on the screw for darker corners or for working in low light (see photo), awesome clip to keep it right at your side, recharges the battery quickly, battery stays charged for a very long time, comes with two 12v batteries which allows one to fully charge long before you need it, battery level indicator on side of driver (see photo), has a quick bit release, keeps the bit tight into the deck screw head which prevents slipping and striping, and is a small size for easier portability. I am a small woman. It is difficult for me to use a heavy drill to drive in screws because I have to put so much of my body weight into the drill to keep the bit from slipping. This becomes almost impossible when working on projects above my head or at odd angles. With the Milwaukee Cordless Impact Driver, I was able to repair my deck with ease. My hands, shoulders, and lower back usually hurt after drilling so much, but I feel great!! I decided to give the Milwakee Cordless Impact Driver a test. With close supervision, I had my five year old drive a 3 inch screws into a couple 2x4. He was able to do it easily. The only downside is the noise of the impact driver. It is fine if you are working during the day. If you have grumpy neighbors or a sleeping baby then I don’t suggest using the driver at night.
