To those who use it for blade removal. Do you still need to hold the blade to keep it from turning?
The answer is no.
For those using an 18v impact wrench, is it a standard 1/2" drive? What brands are the ones to be considered? Delta, Milwaukee, or ???
I would get either dewalt or milwaukee whichever one is cheaper... most of the time milwaukee will be a little cheaper but sometimes more... I would stay away from cheap brands they may work great at first but then they wear out faster and the battery doesnt last as long(even new for some cheap brands).
edit yes most are 1/2"
My wife got me the only thing I wanted for Christmas last year, a Milwaukee 18v 1/2" CORDLESS impact wrench.
Best thing I've ever been able to keep in the truck.
If I get a flat, I can just pop the wheel up in the air and zip zip zip, off to the shop it goes.
I can change a blade if I bend one without looking for a power outlet anymore.
As for changing the blades, once in a while, you will get one that'll stick on ya, and the impact wrench isn't going to get it off.
Then, you'll have to get the breaker bar out and give it a "gentle" tug.
try a snap on or a makita or a milwaukee
I've got the snap-on, it's awesome. More torque than a lot of the other brands.
DeWalt is the leader with 300 Ft lbs. Snap on is 220, or 240 last time I checked.
DeWalt is great with 300 ft. lbs. don't know how I got along without it.
