so apparently milwaukee has a feature called one-key. It is an app that communicates with the tool. So say I want to tighten every bolt down to 27ft lbs of torque, but my impact only offers 10lb. and 50lbs. I can go into the app and change the setting for the impact from 50lbs. to 20 or whatever.

Get back to your books copernicus. None of those things have anything to do with impacts.

so apparently some people say One-Key sucks for specifying torques. It will specify speed, but the torques has levels from 1-20. **** THIS IS TOO HARD

I kinda want the compact impact, but at the same time, it would be annoying when I had to use extensions I imagine. Where as the nut buster would give me that cream pants feeling when I hit the trigger, but it would be way to heavy and wouldn't fit in some places.

Anyone like a electric ratchet?

get something from a store with a good return policy, so if you get something and turns out it sucks then throw it away.

each product is going to have something another product does better.

Their house brand, Chicago. I have a Bauer 20v cordless drill/hammer/screw (a gift) and it's damn good. I'll see how long the Bauer holds up. Generally I like to buy American made, like Milwaukee and DeWalt. And I need the heavy duty quality for high torque lugs on my trucks. My Makita makes light work of my truck lugs and doesn't drain the batt.
