If you choose the hamilton mountain store the m12 3/8 stubby is listed @ $119
Probably YMMV to pricematch another HD (the way some HD's are)
But if you can its listed as $119 tool only

M12 FUEL 12V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Stubby 3/8-Inch Impact Wrench (Tool-Only)
Model # 2554-20|Store SKU # 1001232346
That's a crazy price! Sweet deal for whoever's was able to pick them up for that price.

Trying to figure out the best tool to get.. I’m not in any ecosystem already just been borrowing family’s tools. Hoping you could give me some guidance..

I’m going to start doing my own car wheel changes.. trying to figure out which impact driver to get, a bit confused by the 1/4” hex vs 3/8” vs 1/2”? Is the only difference with the stubby that it’s smaller? M12 vs M18? Can all of these break lug nuts loose on my hatch?

Sorry if these are obvious/stupid questions, fairly new to the world of power tools. thanks
Any sort of hex impact is going to be for driving fasteners like screws or lag bolts.

3/8 vs 1/2 is just the size of the socket drive. For doing wheel changes, a 1/2" socket is most common. In kits, larger sockets, past about 20mm, usually come only in 1/2 drive, but you can use adapters.

Most users seem to be reporting that the m12 stubby will do wheel changes. I do my vehicles to 140/150ftlbs, with a bit of corrosion, it will be even more than that. And power tools never live up to the specs that the manufactures claims. I'd worry that in a few years, when your batteries start to lose capacity, that the m12 might not be enough anymore without replacing the batteries.

I use a Dewalt 899 impact, I got it with two 4ah batteries and charger for about $300 a few years ago. It's obviously bigger than the m12 stubby but it can do a lot more.

Milwaukee stuff is expensive, but it will last a long time and you'll be able to get replacement batteries for a long time.

If you get an m18 high power impact kit, then the charger will be able to charge m12 batteries. Then, if you need something to get in tight spots, you can get the m12 ratchet during a Milwaukee promo - usually you'd get a free battery with that. That's more money than an m12 stubby kit, but it will cover all your needs.

Hamilton has a few more M12 3/8" stubies back in stock. I was able to price adjust my $170 purchase from a few weeks back to Hamilton's new $120, WIN!

The M12 1/2" stubby kit is currently on sale at TSC Stores ... online says $289 but the physical flyer is for $249 (back page) until Aug 22, appears to be limited to on hand quantities.

Managed to score one from Hamilton. However I tried first to see if the Oakville store would pricematch and the girl the counter said they don't pricematch other stores!
However for those of you who are willing to drive to Hamilton, you can get one from your local store and then go to Hamilton to do a return and re-purchase. You'll
be refunded at the full price you bought and the re-purchase will be at the Hamilton price. A store manager told me this trick a while ago even though he wouldn't
do the pricematch.

There's no point in having the physical flyer. The 1/2" isn't available in store.

I wanted to try a PM for an online order, maybe text them a pic of the flyer ad.

Tried that today in Toronto. They said they might price match as a special favour IF the other store was in the same zone. Unfortunately Hamilton is in a different zone, so no luck for me. :-(

I got lucky. The guy on the floor was too busy to care. And the cashier didn't know where Hamilton was so she just gave it to me
