Good Year 24V Cordless Impact Wrench 1/2" Drive 200 FT/LB

Anybody would you please help me out to make up my mind to know which one to get? Thanks.

If you don't get anything here, go to Consumer Reports or Google Cordless Impact Wrench Reviews.

I can't help you out, mine is an 18v Dewalt.

I would suggest buying the one with the longest warranty and the easiest return process.

Ok I was gonna go with Craftsman 20v...unfortunately its no longer in the market. Got to go with a different route. I have Cman 19.2v and it's ok ok. Want a higher torque that is able to take off anything like a breeze.

you cant have you cake and eat it to .... you get what you pay for
you can take anything off like a breeze-but not for cheap
you will need to step up and spend the money to get the performance you want

I also have the 18v Dewalt so I can't really comment on the quality of the ones you mention but there are reasons that the top brands cost more.
This is just my opinion but if you already have a cheaper one that you want to upgrade why buy another cheaper one that you will want to upgrade again.
If you use it a lot buy a top brand that will last. If you hardly ever use it why not put that money toward something else.

PathfinderDude 03-26-2012 09:38 AM

Ok I think I have come down to final decision. Since u guys say quality of brand name says it all and stepping up to pay more, I will go ahead get the Kobalt one. :)

How about IR 19.2? Seems like a bricksh#t house gun.

47dodge 03-26-2012 02:41 PM

If this is the IR you are looking at did you notice for the $220 it doesn't come with a battery or charger? IR is a quality brand but when you add a battery and charger you be at the same price as other top brands.

PathfinderDude 03-26-2012 04:57 PM

No...smh! Thanks for double checking with me. Lol Oh boy that's gonna be a huge amount of $$$ to eat up. I guess I'm better off with Kobalt since it comes with two batteries and charger all for 260 dollars.

Built an entire 6000 sq. ft. log home with a Craftsman electric impact wrench. It wasn't cordless but I wouldn't buy a cordless one anyway. They're NEVER powerful enough.

Still have it and it still works great.

I got to agree with you on that part. Corded is a lot stronger than cordless. Even my friend, who works at Home Depot told me he's not a big fan of batteries.

How is the Kobalt impact gun working out for you? I've been meaning to try one since I've been impressed with my Kobalt air gun. It looks to be more powerful than the Craftsman C3 gun.


Battery technology has come a long way. We now have cordless guns that are POWERFUL thanks to lithium ion batteries. I have a few cordless impacts that would make most, if not all corded 1/2" guns hide in the toolbox. I use them to remove axle nuts and some crank pulley bolts, and they don't flinch at all.

You'd be hard pressed to find a professional builder these days who uses corded tools... back in '94, when I built my shop, my son-in-law, who built pole buildings for a living, laughed at me when I drug out my old Craftsman 1/2 drill. His entire company had already made the switch.

I went out and bought a Milwaukee 14.4V which I still use today (with the original batteries BTW!).

A few months ago I had to retrieve an old Pontiac that I bought two states from me. I bought a Horrible Freight cordless impact... I had a coupon and it cost about $60.00. I needed to switch some tires around on the old car and drug out that new impact...it went dead after two lug nuts! I knew what I was buying... I usually avoid HF with a passion but I thought I'd get lucky just once.

Now I use that impact for what it can handle... carb adjustments... and it works well on the mixture screws!!!
