          5 star power, 2 star longevity
          Was a great tool, lots of power. Only works with 3amp battery and above which is too bad. A little heavy but worth it. Three great setting for lug nuts. Unfortunately it stopped working after a year. Only works one nut at a time. I have to disconnect the battery and reinstall after every nut. . . Lost my receipt so I think it is now garbage??

            This is an impressive impact. You have to be careful you don't snap lugs off using this changing tires. I took it to the junkyard the day I bought it and riped have a car apart it never got stuck on 1 rusty bolt. Can't beat the lifetime warranty also.... Good buy...

              This tool is now my go to for all things...
              This tool is now my go to for all things needing heavy duty removal and installation. No more stretching hoses and waiting for the air pressure to get up to it can function correctly.

              High impact unit with an impressive 900 ft./lbs. of fastening torque!
              This cordless impact wrench provides the mobility that older air powered tools didn't have. This power tool is designed to tighten bolts and nuts, while impact drivers are for drilling holes and driving screws. This High Impact tool produces 900 ft./lbs. of fastening torque, while the mid impact unit has 650 ft./lbs. The auto-tightening mode automatically stops when fastening bolts to prevent over tightening, and when in reverse mode will back off when the bolt is loose so that it doesn’t run off the end and go flying.  This impact wrench has a detent pin which is a spring-loaded ball bearing that projects out of the pin shaft into a hole or detent, locking the pin in place and holds the socket onto the driver. A retaining pin must be pressed in to release the spring pressure to remove a socket. Whereas, other models have a hog ring, which works like a snap ring fitted around the square socket drive groove. The variable 3-speed trigger helps to provide speed control, and the LED light is handy for dimly lit areas. Fits all Ridgid 18-volt batteries.

              Do not buy rigid tools for the lifetime warranty
              Rigid tools offerwhat seems like a great warranty, but thats not necessarily the truth, I purchaed a cordless drill set used 4 years the batteries got weak , so I call and they sent me replacement batteries, I thought what a great company, and heres the real truth, when it comes for the tool its a whole different program, you have to locate a service center, take your tool battery and charger, and then they will send off for repairs, you will be without your tools for 12 weeks or longer. The closest SC was 50 miles from me. It will cost more to go back and forth, while being without. dont fall for the gimick of lifetime warranty.

                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.
