this deal starts since yesterday. I guess it would be on until end of October if stock lasts (only guessing)

I have a large number of Ryobi tools and batteries, but when I decided I was going to get an impact wrench for tire changes and other odd jobs I went with the Ridgid instead: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ridgid ... 1000785199

An extra $40 buys you brushless, a bunch more torque (620 ft.lb breakaway, 485 ft.lb fastening), and the auto setting works awesome. The battery you get in the Ridgid kit is smaller (2Ah vs 4Ah) so you wouldn't get it if you think you will be trying to use the tool all day or need the Ryobi battery for your collection. But the Ridgid works really great for tough but short jobs, and the battery is covered under Ridgid's lifetime service agreement so even if you only ever buy this one Ridgid tool you will always be able to use it.

Just something to consider......

i cant imagine who needs 600lbs of breaking and 400lbs of tightening, most people the highest demand thing they're gonna use this for their car wheels which are 80-100 lbs, this one is rated for 300lbs, I have the old P260 which is rated for 200lbs and its done everything i have asked it to do. This thing is fine for 95% of people who live in the ryobi ecosystem.

I have ryobi edge trimmer. It's six years old and battery is weak now. I could use this battery there because it is used more often than the impact wrench.

Yes tire lug nuts are 80-90 (except trucks), so the loosening torque would be below 150, anything 200-300 would be enough. And I will not use any impact wrench for tightening. It is for loosening only. The ridgid one has 4-mode setting, I guess a lower torque could be set?

Brushless sealed the deal for me. In this day and age, I see no need to get brushed tools at all when the much better long term option is only slightly more expensive.

If Ryobi/HD sold the equivalent brushless wrench in Canada I probably would have got that instead, but it isn't on the market here yet. I suspect they are clearing out this old model to make room......

Where is this number from?
Also the HD website says max 450, not 485

There's more to an impact wrench than changing tires. If you ever need to do suspension components, you will be glad you have a strong impact wrench. The rigid impact wrench is also powerful enough to break loose crankshaft bolts which are usually torqued to 250 ft/lbs. Ive only had one fastener that I couldnt remove with my rigid impact wrench. That was the day I pulled out my Milwaukee high torque impact wrench and broke a 22mm deep socket.

i do a lot of work on cars, i co-run a grassroots racing team we own and maintain 17+ cars on a regular basis, i have used my ryobi for everything and the only thing that it couldn't do was a CV axle nut, i am sure the extra 100 lbs from the new version will alleviate that.

But like i said, it'll be great for 95% of people in the ryobi ecosystem, which is a consumer grade line, not an automotive workshop... if you're doing that kind of work you're likely not using ryobi
