First real proper test of the Ryobi impact wrench today and it spun off the rusty

towbar bolts (22mm) in seconds. No strain at all.

 

Far superior to the cheap Machine mart 12v item. That really needed a front bearing

because it stopped when apply pressure to a fixing.

I did something similar to you, I had a few Makita 18v tools so bought a Makita 18v impact wrench - https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Also picked up a set of Halfords advance impact socket sets for £36 https://www.halfords...pact-socket-set

 

One of the best tools I've bought as it made light work of swapping the front strut's, drop links, ball joints, and (over the last couple of days) exhaust.
 
I'd suggest getting one to anyone that works on their own car, I regret putting it off for so long.

I only have the Lidl mains powered 'cheapie' but to date, all Lidl tools have done what they should.

 

It makes removing and replacing the wheel nuts a breeze.  Also used it to remove the brake carrier nuts and replace.  So much easier than  struggling with a ratchet.

 

As above, don't know why I put it off for so long!


What if the Hokey Cokey IS what it's all about?

I was going to buy the 240v electric one from Machine Mart, but thought it too

restrictive needing a mains supply. It wouldnt run on any of my inverters.

 

But that had good reviews over the years.

I’ve got one like that, it’s great for smaller nuts, and is very lightweight so is easy to use all day long.
