Out of curiosity, what could the battery event provide?

Depends on what you’ll use it for, but I went for the M12 with a free 4ah battery for $199 instead since i have plenty of M12 tools but only 1.5ah batteries.

For homeowner use you don't want the pin detent. It will make it harder to remove sockets. Hog ring is the style you want.

Rookie question, are these used to change tires?

Or can you recommend the right one for that purpose?

Yes but it’s a bit overkill for just that purpose a better suit for just seasonal changeovers would be the Ryobi 1/2 impact with a 4ah battery for 129 on right now, or if you wanna spring for it the Ridgid 1/2 impact which comes with a lifetime service agreement. This tool is more inline with professional mechanics.

Good tool for pretty much anything the amateur mechanic could throw at it. If you're already in the Milwaukee M18 battery ecosystem, this is a decent buy. I agree with the other poster that I prefer hog-ring for speed of changing. I have a Makita that has over 1,100 ft-lbs of breakaway torque but it's overkill for the projects I do (which is pretty much everything) and it's bulkier and heavier than the M18 - especially with a 5ah battery. That being said, there is something to be said for a high torque tool that is substantial enough to not spin itself out of your grip. I think the Milwaukee is a well-balanced tool.

agreed. you can def change tires with this but if thats all you're looking to do with this impact wrench then i would skip this, and elect to go for one of the stubby or compact models, or even go one step lower and just get a 1/2 inch socket bit adapter and loosen the tires with a breaker bar first, then you can use an impact driver to remove the lugs the rest of the way

professional Mechanic, This is my Go-to tool. I hardly use air anymore

Edit; Also I really recommend the angle Die Grinder if your a professional and have extra Money to burn. I bought one brand new. another go to tool.

You can also wait for the price to drop further on these, as Milwaukee just released a new version of M18 midtorque.

For just wheels, the Milwaukee M12 3/8" or 1/2" FUEL impact wrench is perfect. 250lbs tq and really light and compact

That’s if it can take it off.. it tends to struggle.

My 3/8" stubby with an adapter using 1/2" impact sockets with a 4ah takes off my jeep wrangler and car lugs easily.

Maybe 3/4 or 1 ton trucks are a different story?

Did you just get the tool? Have you tried after the winter when the salt/snow and all else settles in for a few months?
