    Debated on buying the "high torque" version of this model, but when with this instead. For my needs, it's awesome. I use this pretty much for just automotive work; not a professional mechanic by a long shot, but just work on my car and friends. I swapped the shocks in my moms car recently, and this saved me I would guess an hour in the process, and it's FUN to use.

    I got this one for an absolute steal on Amazon warehouse - it was in used/like new condition, so I was hesitant, but it just looked like someone opened the box, and returned it immediately. With 2 batteries, a charger, nice case and the driver, $135 was just too good to pass up.

    Pros: I'm a Bosch convert. All their power tools that I now own just fit well in my hand, are well balanced, feel quality, the batteries last forever, and charge quick. In fact, I don't see me looking at any other brand, they're just that well designed (ze germans, no?). If you do the math, this puts out around 135lbs/ft of torque, which is almost double what my Bosch 12v impact driver puts out. It's not heavy, it's not huge, but puts out bolt snapping torque in a small package. Two batteries included are a huge plus, even at the new price this is a great deal. They charge... insanely quick. Maybe I hadn't drained it, but it seemed like 15 minutes until fully charged, which is nuts. LED is a nice touch. Progressive trigger is also somewhat a rarity in the bigger impact drivers; this has it which is nice - doesn't try to jump out of your hand. Also has the brake function, so when you let of the trigger, it just stops spinning immediately. Keeps nuts from flying out of sockets, which is a pain. Ergonomics, power, and battery life are the key features, and it's very well priced.

    Cons: LED could be brighter; no battery meter.

    Conclusion: If you don't work on tractors or things that require massive amounts of torque (i.e. above 130ft/lbs), I don't think there is a better 1/2 driver out there. I have a Dewalt, and now basically hate it (twice as heavy, worse battery, poor ergonomics/balance, same power). Can't say enough about Bosch tools, they are my new go-to brand when looking for anything new.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Short and handy, July 23, 2013

    I bought this particular impact wrench for two specific reasons, one is it is LiOn and one is that it is the shortest (back to front of the motor) on the market. Currently deWalt only offers an 18V version almost as short, while modern batteries are available for it the future is obviously their 20VMax line, but for the deWalt impact wrench you're stuck with the old huge NiCad style battery mount. The Milwaukees (plural) are much longer and one of the two 18V LiOn Milwaukees battery systems is already discontinued.

    Length is very important because there are many hard-to-get-to bolts on modern vehicles where an impact wrench could be handy. On one vehicle of mine the issue is the oil filter cap is only a few inches from a cross member. I can get this tool+socket+oil socket in there, whereas my impact driver + 1/2" socket adapter +the rest will not fit.

    Using a Universal Joint is not a good substitute, as you lose force with every degree of bend, and you lose the impact force with every joint in the tool chain.

    An added bonus is this now comes with the new 4.0AH "Fat Pack" batteries instead of the older 3.0 Fat packs. This is more than double the slim 1.5Ah batteries (which have given me very good service.) Great value from Bosch!

    My only complaint is the availability of this tool. It goes out of stock often, and while many places list it, few actually carry it. Amazon to the rescue!

    So after doing a lot of research on this guy, warehouse deals had it for $155 with 2 4.0A batteries. Basically a steal since it was new (which cost $220).

    I completed a suspension job with this gun, it would not break the lug-nuts and some of the larger suspension bolts (however I had a breaker bar to help).

    I would say for the DIY mechanic, who doesn't use this on a daily basis....its a winner!

    P.S. make sure you buy ear plugs, this thing can get loud...especially in a confined garage.
