    I know you lot have gone over this before and I've done the search but really havent found what I was looking for so.....
    My elcheapo Impact Wrench has bitten the dust and I was wondering what Cordless Impact Wrenches your using. I was thinking about the........
    Panasonic 15.5v EY6535 at 127Nm $670au (this is a 3 in 1 machine) http://www.northwestpowertools.com/impact/ey6535nqkw.htm

    Makita 12v 6914DWFE at 98 Nm $630au http://www.northwestpowertools.com/impact/6914dwbe.htm

    or stepping right up to the
    Makita 24v BTW200ShE at 200Nm for $1100au (this is real bloody expensive)
    http://www.toolbarn.com/cgi-bin/products.cgi/BTW200SHE/

    These are all preferred cordless but if I have to get electric to get a better tool for the price, I will.
    I really dont want to spent this much but to get up to the higher strengths etc, doesn't look like I have a choice. I've just started looking into these properly so any opinions and thoughts you have will be appreciated.
    I dont want to get an air compressor so please leave these out.

    Cheers guys.

    Damn it!:D
    When I checked the back dated posts, (in the search) seemed like there were quite a few of you that used Cordless/Electric Impact Wrenches. I just figure they were small enough to put under/behind the truck seat and handy out in the field. I still havent given up! That Panasonic looks good with the 3 in 1 but I'm not to sure about the power of it, let alone the cost!

    Cheers

    I used the Makita 12v impact wrench you mentioned. I love it! I haven't had it that long but I'm yet to find a blade it won't remove in short order. I can change 3 blades about 5 times on a charge. Not much more to say about it other than it works great. I paid $200.00 USD.

    Mickhippy,

    Ive had the Milwauke 18v corfless impact for about 2 months now and its awesome. I take it with me always, and use it frequently in the field. The cordless impact has always had enough power.

    That is really nice. They must have JUST come out with that DeWalt, because I just inquired about them just during this past summer, and they weren't available, yet. I have the Makita 12V, and I love it. I believe I was the first one that posted about these being used, as I knew I had to have one when I saw the mechanic at my dealer use one to put a different set of blades on my mower. His was a Snap-On though, and is quite a bit pricier. But like I said, though, that Makita is a real nice unit. I'm sure you couldn't go wrong with the DeWalt, either.
