Looking for a good and reasonably priced cordless impact gun or kit, to remove and replace lug nuts as well as other things.

Looking for both 1/2 and 3/8ths sizes

I have a Ryobi where the batteries interchange with my other cordless tools. I don't use it a lot, mostly for the race car or trailer. In the shop I use air.

I have a Ryobi also. You can find it for $100 with battery and charger.

I can do all 6 trailer wheels off and on with a single battery. Torqued at 115, 8 per wheel. Good enough for me, especially for the price.

Got Milwaukee m18 3/8 stubby. The thing is tiny and incredible. 250 ft lbs. Has different settings to prevent breaking. Love it.

Bought the 3/8 90 degree, similar to air ratchet. Between both I got three batteries as the stubby came with two and three ratchet another.

Compared them to snapon... And couldn't justify the extra. Few years back I bought another big air compressor for my other garage... Wish I wouldn't have with these tools.

I just picked up a Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2861 mid-torque wrench. This is in between the new stubby series and the large 1400 ft/lb models.

I got it to take in the truck in case I need to change a tire on the side of the road. This one has a rated 600 ft/lbs of break away torque.

I also plan to get a 3/8" stubby M12 but with the videos I saw it took too long to remove larger truck lug nuts.

The best part is you put a charger in the trailer and you have 1 style battery for your impact,drill,sawzall and a tire inflator you can carry in the car.

Do you have the P261 model impact? Will it remove truck lug nuts torqued to 125 ft lbs?

I have several brands at work- Mikita, Dewalt, Snap on, Ryobi & Milwaukee. For the $$ ryobi is hard to beat, Milwaukee is good also.

I have a 20V Dewalt 1/2". With a charged 5AH battery it will remove nuts that my 1/2" air impact can't. Also have a 1/4" hex driver that uses same battery, I use a 3/8" adapter to use sockets. So far it has twisted off 3'8" Gr.5 bolts. Like these tools. Cool JB
