Top Customer Reviews
I also use mine for changing race tires on my BMW. I have used numerous impact wrenches that my friends own (some of which could not break lugnuts at all even on a full charge) and I have used another Makita without the LiON battery, which I used to own. I have found that not only can this one easily break lug nuts tightened to 95 ft/lbs, but that it can do many many wheels one charge. I'd pass mine around the paddock and it could be used all weekend by several people without a recharge. It would even sit in the trailer for a couple of weeks without a recharge and still break lugnuts loose.
While this one certainly isn't cheap, I'd have to say that because of it's very small size and huge power it far surpasses all the other impact drivers I have used and is well worth the money.
