Can I use this adapter to take the lug nuts off my car using a Ridgid Gen5x and an impact socket?

Asked by Wyo August 23, 2020

Answers

No. I would not. These are designed for use on a impact driver for bolts and screws on relatively low torque gun rated in inch lbs. They are not designed for automotive impact drivers that have much higher torque rated in foot pounds. You need tools designed for automotive impact tool use for high torque applications. The first tool I have linked to is the 1/4 in driver similar to what those adapters are made for. The second tool I have linked to is an automotive type driver with 3/8 drive. Look at the torque spec differences in the two tools. https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Brushless-1-4-in-3-Speed-Impact-Driver-with-Belt-Clip-Tool-Only-R86037N/206947575 https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-OCTANE-Cordless-Brushless-3-8-in-6-Mode-Impact-Wrench-Kit-with-2-0-Ah-Battery-and-18-Volt-Charger-R86239SB/310380057

How much torque can they handle before they break?

I used it on my Fuel impact which has about 1800 torque and it held up well, but I can't say it'll last for extended use under high torque stress.

Is this supposed to snap or lock in? Mine comes out with hardly any pressure.

They have no magnets on them but it is highly recommended you use a magnetic bit holder for these adaptors.

Do these lock directly into the collet or do they require an additional adapter to attach into?

Asked by Doug August 17, 2018

Answers

Lock directly in any hex impact driver without needing an adapter. Would work in a regular drill as well although I've never used that application. Non-magnetic but great product nonetheless. I have used & applied pressure on these with several different hex impact drivers, no breakage.

I can't believe this is Milwaukee product
I just bought this adapter and it snap-off on second drive. Took me sometime to get the broken piece out. Own other Milwaukee tool for more than 30 years and never has this terrible experience before. I think Milwaukee can do better than this or just don't sell it.

Horrible
First time using the 3/8” and it broke. Using the Dewalt DCF 887 Impact Driver. Returned it and replaced with the same, thinking I must have gotten a defective one and again it broke after the third bolt. I do NOT recomend it.

LIght duty only
You can probably use these adapters up to about 125 ft-lbs of torque. Go above that and they'll snap right off at the head. If all you're hoping to do is spin nuts after loosening them with a breaker, they'll do that job. Milwaukee's marketing implies that these adapters will do more than that, and for that they get a low rating.
