Then go to Harbor Freight and get a $12 set of sockets ...I use it for changing tires on trailers and truck.
yeah that's the exact one i have. it is perfect for mower blades, trailer lug nuts, mower lug nuts, etc.

i think if you had one of those more powerful ones it would just strip out the bolts inside the deck spindles.

i have the regular nicad batteries for it. you can get the lithium ion batteries and they give you more power. i'm gonna buy the lithium ion charger and batteries at some point.

Most all 18v lith ion are about all one needs for tires and mower work. I have enjoyed better service with the 3amp battery last much longer and holds it power longer.

Caddy029,

I am sort-of cheap. But, the dewalt is a fantastic impact wrench. 112 ft/lb of torque is perfect for mower blades. The bolts on my Exmarks are 15/16 and it works great. I probably charge it twice a month. I change blades at least 2x per week. Not bad for a 1/4 inch impact. I buy the adapters at Harbor Freight and have not broken one yet. Sockets from Harbor Freight too.

Tim

If you're really worried, you could buy a few torque sticks in the size you need.

Just as a note we were told not to use these with electric impacts. Something about how they are not consistent enough with the output.

Also, nicad and lio doesn't affect power output. Just longetivity

I have all snap on. And IR air tools. And the Matco pitbull air ratchet

i was thinking about going with this.. my old 18v craftsman professional is getting pretty weak... i have the new 20v drill, so this would make a great addition.
