[Home Depot] [OOS] HOT Ridgid 18V 1/2-inch Impact Wrench w/ 4.0Ah battery - $178

Been eyeing an impact wrench for past few weeks and noticed this came back in stock online. Doesn't seem to be in stock in stores. I was contemplating between this and the kit with 2.0 Ah and socket + bag but I figured I rather have a 4.0 Ah battery. I think this was the same deal as March 2020 bare tool + battery, correct me if I'm wrong..

With the LSA, would have been a hard pick between this and the $129 Ryobi

The LSA is huge. Everything breaks eventually.

This is a Firedeal for sure. Bought this last year during the tool event and never looked back. Changing tires has never been so much fun.

This one is brushless and has the LSA. Very tempted to get this and then find some ridgid <> ryobi battery adapters to use the battery on my ryobi stuff. I bought ryobi stuff on sale cheap but I know that in a few years the batteries will turn to dust and I'll be sol if I don't want to just buy new batteries... this is where the LSA would shine.

I just got the hammer drill + impact wrench kit with 2 2Ah batteries (returned the free tool bringing the price to about 190+tax). I can't imagine the 4Ah battery making that big of a difference and I now have 4 2Ah batteries so lots of backups.

Twice the runtime to be pretty specific. Personally, I think 4.0 Ah is the happy medium between runtime and added weight to the tool, but it really depends on what tool you are using (its own weight and how much current it requires to operate).

I think there are videos around of the 4Ah providing more torque VS the 2Ah.

Its been a life saver for a lot of suspension components, brakes, etc. Mostly hard to break and rusted bolts.

If you're only considering these for a tire swap....think about whether you'd be happy with just using a breaker bar to loosen the lugs and then a standard impact driver with a 1/2 socket adapter to change out your tires. I ended up figuring out I didn't really need an impact wrench for my purposes

I changed mine a week ago with just a breaker bar too, but it would have been way quicker with an uggadugga. If you have more than one vehicle, it adds up to hours every seasonal change and is totally worth it.
