Sweet Spot
This dude hits the sweet spot of weight, balance, and torque between the high torque and the impact driver. It’s probably all most people will need, especially DIYers, since you can throw a reducer on it and use it with 3/8 as well without running into too many space constraints due to its compactness relative to the high torque. Overall great feel. Another worthy competitor to the other big boys.

I can't believe how quick this made working on the tractor
The RIDGID R86012 medium power brushless impact driver just pops the 223 ft lb screws out that have been in the tractor for seven years. I would have struggled a lot to get those out with a breaker bar. This driver is rated up to 650 ft lb removal torque. I most like the automatic mode that stops impacting when the bolt comes loose or when it snugs down. That makes it easier to handle and helps prevent over torqueing. The driver is rated for 500 ft lb tightening and has three speeds in addition to automatic. There is a good worklight in the base of the handle. It takes the same 18V batteries that I use in all my other RIDGID tools.

Great quality, powerful, portable, great features.
This Ridgid 18V impact wrench (model R86012) is perfect for handling those projects that need attachment or removal of nuts and sockets. I am not an auto mechanic; so my use of the tool is for general construction projects. I had gotten by before with an adapter to my drill, but a dedicated tool is quicker and more efficient. I already have Ridgid tools utilizing 18V batteries. I have a Ridgid dual battery charger and 4.0Ah 18V batteries; so I only needed the impact wrench (tool only). This tool works perfectly with my existing batteries. That is one advantage of Ridgid’s 18V compatible battery system. This is a mid-torque wrench so it is the right size with more than enough power for most construction-type projects. It has some very nice features including four speed settings, one of which is “auto”. On auto, the wrench will shut off automatically when the nut or bolt provides feed back resistance. That will allow more defined user action depending on what additional tightening is needed. There is an LED light to illuminate the area when the trigger is depressed. The sockets are held in place with a friction ring and my sockets go on easily and are removed with a firm grasp and pull. The motor is brushless. The 4.0Ah battery provides long run use and quick recharge with the Ridgid battery charger; so the tool is very portable.

Powerful, Handy at Home or Shop
A great looking tool that has a lot of power. It shows a max fastening torque of 500ft/lbs and a max breakaway torque of 650ft/lbs. It's brushless, which means it's more powerful and longer lasting. This one is has a 1/2" pin detent anvil. The pin detent is designed to better hold impact sockets when dropping the socket could be a hazard or safety issue. It has a variable speed trigger, three speed modes and an Auto Mode. Auto Mode helps to protect against over-tightening by shutting down when impacting starts. If running in the reverse direction, it shuts down when impacting stops. An LED light is activated automatically with the trigger. The belt hook can be installed on either side if the tool. The tool has an electric brake that stops the rotation when the trigger is released. This is great to have when servicing things like your car, truck, mower, tractor, etc. It's great to have in your vehicle in the event that you have a flat. It sure beats using a lug wrench. I've been using RIDGID tools for many years with great satisfaction and service. You may also register your tool for their Lifetime Service Agreement. That information is included with the tool. The owners manual is clear and easy to understand. Read it to get the best use from your tool. There's a lot of power in this tool. Enjoy it.

In love
I'm always guy people call to help out in a bind with fast tire... yea I know..they should know how to change one regardless but regardless this tool made it easier. No more having to fill my portable compressor and bringing my pneumatic impact wrench. This Ridgid impact is a game changer. I haven't had to "use" it in a pinch yet but I did use to it take my lugnuts off and on to try it out and I did NOT disappoint. It took on and off the nuts without any issues . The multiple impact settings is perfect for protection against over tourquing. This is my new favorite tool. Gonna be so much easier to rotate my tires without firing up the compressor.

Natural Feeling, Advanced Digital Control Brushless Mid-Torque 1/2" Impact Wrench
This is a straight-forward, advanced brushless 650 ft-lb (mid-torque) 1/2" Impact Wrench. Everything about it is refined and feels right. It is 10% more compact than the model it replaces. They've lost the top-mounted mechanical mode control switch and the awkward rubber cladding on the previous model and switched to a LED lit push button mode control on the base. There is an optional rubber complete upper body shroud available for those that will knock this tool around a lot/work in an especially grimy environment. The Digital Controller for the Brushless Motor is the magic in this tool. It delivers more power and runs more efficient, of course, but the big feature for me is Auto Mode. Auto Mode allows you to run the gun without having to be worried about over-tightening. When taking lug nuts off in Auto Mode the gun shuts off when impacting stops. You don't have that Whirrrrrr! until you release the trigger. The Electric Brake kicks in. When re-installing the lug nuts Auto Mode shuts off the gun when impacting begins. This prevents over-torque without having to be hair trigger about it. Final tightening is done by switching to a manual torque wrench. The gun has Low, Medium and High modes but I prefer the Automatic Mode. Everything feels right/natural about the ergonomics and including the reverse/forward selector. 5 Stars for an excellent tool. This replaces my very experienced pneumatic 1/2" torque wrench and is an addition to my smaller, sub-compact 3/8" 18V wrench (lower torque).

Very nice impact tool
Nice well thought out impact wrench, another good addition to the Ridgid line. It has a friction ring to hold the socket on. It also has 3 speeds you can choose and a auto mode. The variable speed trigger is a nice feature. The weight is not too heavy and its compact size is a nice feature. The speed range is from zero to 2,800 in high. In the auto mode it will automatically shut down when reaching impact level. you can then finish with torque wrench if wanted or switch to one of the other 3 speeds. Has a electric brake to stop when release the trigger.

Great tool with a lot of power in spare. No need to use the compressor to remove the wheel lug nuts.
