power on demand
wow! the ridgid high torque impact wrench is amazing. it packs so hard of a punch i was able to pull the tire off of a semi using just the impact wrench. that is astounding considering those nuts were put on by a 1 inch drive air impact wrench. backed by ridgid’s lifetime parts and labor warranty the impact wrench is a solidly built machine. it has quite a bit of weight to it. it is equipped with both forward and reverse and the trigger is variable speed. a rubber grip around the trigger makes for great grip and comfort. all around another great tool by ridgid!

Great impact wrench
I received the Ridgid 1/2” HP High Torque impact wrench in good condition. This is a new 4 mode brushless 1/2” impact wrench. The 4 mode settings include an Auto mode, to automatically stop torquing when a nut is loosened or tightened. It has a claimed fastening torque of 900 ft-lbs and 1300 ft-lbs of nut busting torque. It has a claimed 0-1800 rpm, and 0-2300 IPM. It has a hog ring that holds sockets and extensions securely. An LED at the base provides adequate illumination with an expected shadow. I don’t have a scale that’s accurate for low weight, it has a specified weight of 5.75 lbs. It is made in China, with a lifetime service agreement if you register the tool. Proof of purchase is required. I can’t speak to hard use or durability since I just got this tool. I like this impact wrench, and expect to use it for bigger wrenching tasks on my cars.

Great Tool
The Ridgid definitely delivers. It actually outperforms its rated torque according to some torque test channels, but I can say it definitely brings the beans in the real world of auto repair. The one caveat is I have older batteries, 2 amp hr, and it doesn’t seem to like them even though they take a full charge. It’ll shut off from overheating I’m guessing. I’m guessing newer batteries wouldn’t.l have the same issue, and 5 amp hr are probably the floor to take full advantage of this impact. But that’s my frugality, not three tool’s fault, so I won’t ding it for that.

A beast
This is a really good quality impact wrench. And very powerful. I was able to remove Lugnuts off of a semi truck and other bolts in the engine compartment. And the way I see it is if it was able to do that then it could do anything else that a normal car has. I even tested it on an old motor to remove the crankshaft bolt and it did it. I removed Lugnuts off of my truck with no problem and this thing is powerful enough to possibly break Lugnuts when tightening on the top setting. I really like the features of the settings for 1 to 3 and even the auto tightening mode is pretty cool even though I did not use it that much. I’m not used to using a friction ring but I had no issues with any sockets flying off or anything loose. The anvil is definitely strong and should hold up to the power this thing has. I was running it with a 4 ah battery and that gave me enough juice to do anything I needed. I literally struggled with not one bolt. I was even able to remove an old rusted bolt from a tractor that’s been sitting for years. And it being a brushless motor makes me comfortable knowing it’s going to last. The tool is a little heavy but it’s well balanced and packs the power to back up the weight. I definitely think this impact wrench can compete with any of the top ones out there. Definitely a great tool and should last many years to come. Definitely want to take care of this one.

This thing is Great
Just got this and it's Great, I had it in my truck last night when a friend called me and asked if I could help him change a tire on his F250 Duley, while I was at work. I told him yes. I had my new impact wrench in my truck. So he stopped by at 2:00 AM and we did it in the parking lot. So anyway I just got this and it was a tool only because I already have two Ridgid battery's that I can use with it. When I first took it out of the box I could not believe the weight of this thing it's about 5 to 7 LB's with out the battery. I like the way it fits my hand it's very comfortable when you use it. I put a 1/2" extension on it with a 1/2 to 3/4 adaptor and a 29mm socket to remove the lug nuts. I broke them lose with no problem at all using auto mode. We then swapped the inside tire and put it back on. We put the lugs on by hand and then use the impact this time with a torque limiting extension and socket to tighten the lugs. I use the 1st mode this time and then checked the torque with a torque wench set at 150 FT LB's. I still had a long way to go to get to 150 LB's. So I changed to mode 2 and Impacted them again, then again with the Torque wrench. This time I got a little movement before I got my 150 LB torque. Then torqued all 8 lugs. My Friend was so impressed with this new impact he went around his truck and impacted all his wheels for a total of 32 lug's. I only had a 2 Amp hour battery and I checked it today and still had a 3/4 charge on it. So the Impact gun did not take a lot of power to do this job. Very impressive, I also like the fact that the light on the Impact was good enough to see the lugs deep inside the wheel. This is so much better than getting out a compressor and air hose then a air impact and hoping you have enough air pressure. I think this would be the perfect tool to keep in my truck for that unexpected flat tire change. This Impact is just so well made it's would be hard to go without it now.

Big Tool for Big Jobs
This beast of an impact wrench delivers 2,300 impacts per minute with a breakaway torque of 1,300 ft-lbs and maximum fastening torque of 900 ft-lbs. It's big and it's heavy but not a burden and nicely balanced in use. Of the four modes 3 offers the highest RPM and torque and the clever A setting senses when the fastener has loosened or tightened fully and cuts the power. That saves most fasteners coming right off the stud, falling and getting lost - most of the time, anyway. This tool deserves to be in every truck and heavy duty workshop. The tool only option means I don't have to buy batteries when I don't need them as I already have enough for now.

My new favorite tool!
I am delighted with the RIDGID 18-Volt Brushless Cordless 1/2 in. High Impact Wrench. I just used it to rotate my tires. The impacts are about as loud as an air impact wrench, but you don't have the whistle of the compressed air nor do you have the air compressor noise. The Rigid impact wrench is a sophisticated tool with four torque/speed settings. Level 1 was not enough to loosen my lug nuts, and when I used it to snug the nuts, they were somewhere around 40ftlb. Level 2 was adequate for removing lugs nuts. I did not try 3, but automatic was interesting. It broke the nuts loose and stopped. A second trigger squeeze spun the nut off the lug. With the battery, the Rigid impact wrench weighs 6.6lb. The battery indicates that it is still fully charged after removing and then snugging 20 lug nuts. The drive is quite a snug fit in the sockets. The Rigid impact wrench will save you time, effort, and hearing.

Powerful battery powered brushless impact wrench provides up to 900 ft-lbs of torque with a 1300 ft-lbs breakaway torque. The advantage of brushless motors is that they rely on magnets rather than brushes that wear down and don’t last as long as brushless motors. It has 3 manual set modes, that deliver 600-1800 RPM and an auto mode that delivers 1100 RPM’s. It is powered by an 18 volt battery. It weighs 5 1/2 pounds without the battery and feels heavy, reflecting its robust construction. All Rigid tools come with a lifetime warranty.

Monster torque
My review of the Ridgid High torque 1/2 in impact wrench. So I don't put much value into manufacturers specs because I feel they are all over stated but this wrench has unreal power. 4 modes of torque. Compared to others I have used it comparable on torque but feels lighter and more nimble. I will be the first one to say that I am not giving up my air tools just yet but these cordless impacts have come along way and the are so convenient for when you are not near a compressor.

Solid, powerful, fast, and heavy duty
I'll list some of the features and then share my experience with this Ridgid 18v 1/2 inch high torque impact wrench. This unit has a brushless motor for maximum performance and longer runtime. It runs on the Ridgid 18v batteries and they recommend you use the max output batteries for maximum power. This impact has a 1/2 inch anvil for 1/2 inch sockets. This tool has a max breakaway torque of 1,300 ft-lbs., and max fastening torque of 900 ft lbs. This unit has a 4 mode selector. To switch modes press the mode button and the one you are on will illuminate. The no load speeds for each mode are (1) Low: 0-600 RPM, (2) Medium: 0-1,300 RPM, (3) High: 0-1,800 RPM, and (4) AUTO: 0-1,100 RPM. The IPM or impacts per minute are 0-2,300/min. This unit has overload protection. It has a variable speed trigger which means the more pressure you apply to the trigger the faster it will spin. There is a direction of rotation selector switch. Position it to the left to tighten, right to loosen, and middle to lock the trigger. There is a built in LED light that illuminates when you put any pressure on the trigger. The light will continue to stay on for about 10 seconds after you release the trigger. This is great for low light conditions. It has slots to mount holes for a belt clip (sold separately) on either side. I already owned a Ridgid and a Ryobi 1/4 hex impact, but this is my first 1/2 inch battery powered impact. This tool feels solid and well built. It does have some weight to it but feels really nice in your hands. The head of this unit is solid metal with a very hard plastic body wrapped with rubber grips and bumpers. The grip is amazing. The rubber is textured with little bumps that make it virtually slip proof. I have not had a job where I needed this tool yet but I have tested and played with it out in my work shop. I paired this up with my gear wrench 1/2 inch impact socket set.The trigger glides nice and smooth. The power and speed when driving a bolt does not compare to my smaller 1/4 in hex impacts. The anvil turns nice and smooth, even when the impact kicks in. The impacts hit very hard but are still easy to control. I am waiting on some railroad ties to be delivered and that will be the ultimate test when I drive the lag bolts through them. I will try to update this review when I complete that job. If you are in the market for an 18v, brushless, 4-mode, 12in., high torque impact wrench look no further. This is a heavy duty tool. The speed and the power this unit delivers would make Tim The Tool Man Taylor grunt and howl.
