Will this remove the lug nuts from a ford 250?

Asked by Ron November 9, 2020
1
Answer

If the lugnuts are properly torqued and not seized on for some reason, this impact COULD remove the lugnuts, but it will struggle and probably hammer away for several seconds. If your primary use will be removing lugnuts, there's really no practical reason to go with a sub-compact 3/8 inch impact wrench. You'll be happier, if this is the primary use, with a larger 1/2 inch impact wrench with more torque. Yeah, it will be heavier and won't look at cute, but will be better suited for lugnut use. If your primary use will be smaller tasks under the hood or around the house, with only the occasional lugnut use, then this may get you by. But it still won't just zip the lugnuts off like you might be expecting based on the rated removal torque specifications. Don't get me wrong, this is a great tool, and typically the first one I grab for most impact needs in my garage. But if I'm removing lugnuts on anything other than an ATV or UTV, I go for the larger, heavier, 1/2 inch impact wrench.

Hello Maap, Thanks for your question on the RIDGID 18-Volt SubCompact Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless 3/8 in. Impact Wrench (Tool Only) with Belt Clip R87207B. That would be dependent upon the blade nut size and torque requirements needed to remove the blade. The RIDGID R86011B 18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless 1/2 in. Impact Wrench (Tool Only) with Belt Clip may be a better option. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in RIDGIDI! - Eve

Maximum fastening torque according to Ridgid is 200 ft. lbs. maximum breakaway torque according to ridgid is 225 ft. lbs. From the things I’ve used it for I would say it’s pretty close to those specs

Big power, small size!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Very powerful little unit, I mostly use it working on cars. I used it for tearing down some engines, can do pretty much everything but the crank bolt with ease. (Need the big boy there) Much better than a 1/4" nut driver with a socket adapter, and actually lighter/smaller. Very similar head size and power to the Milwaukee Stubby M12 Fuel impact, but even lower priced. Would have been a 5 star review, but the battery placement is a bit wonky. It's right flush with the end of the anvil, so it can get in the way in certain circumstances, especially when using short sockets on a flat or nearly flat surface. Handle need more slope, or battery needed some more rearwards offset. This is much less an issue when using deep sockets, and using any extension makes it a total non issue. Sidenote, there is a 1/2" twin to this coming, so if you already have 1/2" impact sockets, maybe wait for that.

Surprisingly Powerful
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Yes, it will take the lug nuts off your car, even with only a 2A battery. My 150ft/lbs F150 lug nuts come off with this impact wrench. It's not instant - the impact buzzes for a couple seconds, but then it's no issue. So if it'll take nuts off my truck, it'll do pretty well any personal vehicle out there. It's also got the advantage of being small and fairly lightweight, especially in comparison to full size 1/2" impact wrenches. Go to the Depot and check out the display - there are lots of full size half inch impact wrenches that are like Thor's hammer. There are also lots of small ones rated for well under 200 ft.lbs when this one is 225. I doubt others would be able to take off truck lug nuts. I switched from Makita to this. Can't go wrong with the lifetime service agreement.

(What's this)
Good powerful little impact wrench. The size of it literally surprised me. It is really compact and definitely packs a punch. I first used it with some 4 inch 3/8 lag bolts and it drove them in without a problem with or without a pilot hole. It actually surprised me when one lag bolt did not want to go in and actually snapped it in half. It definitely removed lug nuts from any of my vehicles from the work truck to the family SUV. It has basically four speeds. One of the speeds is really nice because it drives in the bolt but once it hits bottom it will stop so I can torque it and not over do it. I got some really good run time with a 6ah battery. I actually did not use it all driving in lags for a patio, remove tires, did some brakes and still had 2 bars. It’s a brushless motor which is very efficient. Even though this impact is smaller and doesn’t have the power of the big 1/2 inchers, for me I would definitely say I can do 90% of the jobs I need to do. I really like everything about this impact even its balance and weight. I believe it’s rated at about 250 foot pounds and I would say it’s probably close to that from the task I had to do. It never once overheated on me and is was atleast 100° outside. I really like the feel of it and you can definitely feel the impact hitting when you’re either removing or screwing in a bolt. The impact did feel a little close together not like others that I’ve used for the impact her a little more spaced but the power is there and that’s what matters.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is the bare tool without a battery – but in order to test this I used a 2Ah battery. It has a very compact body - it weights 2 lbs 1.4 oz. without a battery and 3.0 lbs. with the battery. The body is 4.33” long, 2.63” wide and the overall height with the battery is 9.09” tall (see photo). The body length of 4.31” as shown in the Product Overview is false (from the tip of the anvil to the rear of the battery housing) it is really 5.56”. Note I am using the smaller 2Ah battery, not the longer Hyper High Output 2.0Ah battery. Because of its compact size and weight, it is a great tool for general use on surface fasteners – the compact body also gets to some hard to reach fasteners, but the large battery base sometimes gets in the way, but by using a combination of u-joints and extenders, most but not all fasteners can be reached. Overall, it has a nice balanced feel. This has a belt clip that can be attached to either side of the battery plate. This has a 4 mode speed control: 1, 2,3 and Auto. Speeds 1, 2 and 3 limit the maximum RPM’s to 850, 2100 and 2800, Auto when used in the forward direction stops when its starts impacting and when used in reverse will stop when impacting is completed. The LED light in the mode panel is bright enough to be clearly visible even in direct sunlight.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This wrench has impact! Lots of it and the compact size and lighter weight make it easier to use for a longer time and gain access to tighter areas particularly in the automotive industry. Be sure to have a few batteries though because this tool gets through them. I found attaching the sockets a little bit problematic but I know this will ease up over time – it always has with other similar tools. In the video a couple of large lag bolts are driven deep into a wooden bar and mode 3 proved to be the best option for this task. The other modes will prove their worth more in different environments. Build quality is good and the lifetime service offer is an excellent incentive.

This is coming from a guy that owns the M12 3/8 impact wrench
My comparison only goes as far with my experience with the m12 cousin and the makita xwt11, which all focus on delivering power in a small and compact design. Does it deliver? If you take into account how TTi managed to make the head so small and still pulls out a reasoble amount of torque, then we have a decent impact driver that does that in its class. Is it more powerful than m12? No, but it’s close enough when compared to other competitors in similar category. IMO it performs better than makita’s xwt11, which has 1/2 anvil and a similar spec rating of 225 ft lb. The downside of the tool just like the subcompact impact driver and multi material saw is the noise department because it’s louder when compared to m12 only because the m12 gets the work done a little quicker and with more power. Where does this fit in? Lag screws for deck work and maybe....in the automobile department if everything is torqued according to specs and nothing over 225 ft lb rating. The battery size is not so much a problem, but the actual size of the tool really doesn’t do it justice if you haven’t seen it in person. It does look like a toy, but don’t let that decieve you. Only time will tell if it will withstand the abuse in a real world situation.
