Milwaukee Impact Wrench

Looking at replacing my Milwaukee compact impact wrench with a high torque one as it’s not man enough for a lot of the jobs i need it for. Swithering between the 1/2 and the 3/4 model pros and cons of both?

Impact wrench you mean, although they do do torque wrenches now!

3/4 for wheel nuts
1/2 mid torque for lighter jobs
Impact screw driver with adaptors to 3/8


That's what I have works well for me.
 
I think the high torque 1/2 and 3/4 are the same size bit 3/4 slightly more Welly. Most 1/2" socket sets stop at 32 mm so anything bigger would be better with 3/4. Sockets are a lot cheaper and easier to come by in 1/2". My 1/2" has coped with all wheelnuts of tractors and Manitou so far but that means nothing

the 1/2 and 3/4 are much the same, light edge on power of the 3/4 due to transmitting force to larger sockets better hence why its better on wheel nuts and stuff, but they weight the same so not saving anything there.

for lighter stuff the hi torque is kind of overkill and the mid torque is plenty plus way lighter and more compact, if the OP already has a 1/2 drive mid torque or even a smaller version of the mid torque i wouldn't bother with the 1/2 high torque just go all out 3/4.

They will both have there uses, my new screw driver impact has a surprising amount of power in it with the 3/8 adaptor plus its really small and light, and then its great when i do need to use it as an actual screw driver too :ROFLMAO:
