Think theres good chance that the impact wrench combo will go on sale? Its ~$149 for the brushed combo.. and $179 for the brushless combo. Like alot of others, contemplating a power tool for the seasonal winter tire change.

Or would it be better to get this $79 combo that gets you the battery+charge and then hunt for the impact wrench tool only deal?

Am I the only one having trouble getting the bits out of Milwaukee's case? There's not much surface area to grip on a drill bit.

1.5ah battery is not good enough for an impact wrench. You need at least at 4ah to run it properly

This is true, My M12 stubby is quite wimpy with my 1.5Ah batteries...

Don't uh, don't use an impact driver to pull off wheel lugs. It screams amateur hour and it's simply not the tool for the job.

You could also just go in the store and pick one up off the shelf. Again this is NOT a price error, it will scan at that price right in the store. I guess you can have your husband/wife wait outside with the car idling so you can "make a getaway" with your "steal" like in that Ikea commercial, but no one in HD will care since that's the price of it lol.

Yeah but the tool is useful and is worth $79 on its own, so the battery/charger are a bonus.

If you're talking about return trick then no, this is a SB kit it's not separate items. If you're talking about having a return policy then yes, HD has 90 days (might even be 180 right now).

Haha it originally came with 2Ah but I returned it to get the tool cheaper Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Was debating picking up some 4Ah batteries (for Milwaukee M12, 4Ah is higher current than 6Ah) at the last sale but figured I'd not bother for now. For suspension work my mechanic friend has his Snap-on. For wheel lugs the 1.5Ah actually works most of the time, and I use a breaker bar to start it otherwise. No big deal.

Anyone in Winnipeg, don't bother going to Leila for the impact one. It showed 8 in stock but no one could find it. There happened to be 8 that were NOT HP with one battery for the same price without a bag so maybe something got crossed. Those ones are not brushless.

Wasted a little time this morning.

I Just got email that it has been shipped!

So I don't have to run from store to store.

How do you get free shipping on this item?
They try to charge me almost $10 to ship this item.

titanium? hehe, same. but what helps is if you pull up the insert in a vertical position with the case sitting on the table.

help me understand, how is it not useful? what is not useful is using a massive 4Ah battery on a driver that you want to carry around and get into tight spots. 1.5Ah is perfect for a drill/driver, unless you are doing some intense work like drilling 100 holes or putting in 1000 screws all at once.

Yes, but make sure you put it in second gear (higher speed at lower torque)! I made that mistake when I got my first hammer drill. I thought, brick and concrete are really hard, so I should have it in first gear for more torque. Wrong! It took forever to drill a single hole, almost like a normal non-hammer drill. When I flipped it into second gear, it went into the brick like it was butter.

He was talking about impact wrench, not driver. Impact drivers have high impacts per minute but less powerful impacts, and don't require that much juice. Impact wrenches have fewer, harder hitting impacts, and the more juice the better. Higher capacity batteries give you max voltage for longer, while with tiny batteries the voltage decreases when they're not at 100%.

I see. And yet I bet 1.5Ah battery would still be sufficient for an impact wrench to change wheels on one car.

On some hammer drills (like newer Milwaukee 12V) there's a switch to select hammer/drill/driver mode.

Does anyone know whether the hammer mode on such a drill bypasses the clutch, like the drill mode does? I know that driver mode uses the clutch as is it's purpose.

This Ryobi compact hammer drill has hammer mode (and drill mode) on the numbered clutch, so I'm guessing both those modes bypass the clutch on this tool?

Yes, both drill modes bypass the clutch. Or it's the same as having the clutch at its highest (max torque) setting.

I could use a cordless hammer drill, and been wanting to buy into the Ryobi system (neat stuff). But, am I the only one concerned the hammer drill doesn't have the 2nd hand support grip? To me, without it, looks wimpy.
