Are you saying you compared a 7.2v 300 in/lb Snap on to a 12v 1200 in/lb rated Milwaulkee?

Snap On is what we use in the R&D department at Mack Trucks ... They are hard to beat

The milwaukee unit.is rated at 1200 in lbs. Snapon is rated at 100 ft lbs. According to my math they are rated the same. I have a snapon 1200 master catalog in front of me.

The 7.2v 1/4 hex is rated in inches/lbs in the 1200 catalog. You might want to reread it. 100 inches/lbs 11.25N-M. They have a newer one online that has 300 inches/lbs. The voltage difference alone tells you you are comparing apples to oranges.

Well that sucks I just saw that I thought they were all in ft lbs. Rookie mistake.

But let's go back to apples to apples.

Warranty for Snapon 1 year tool/ 1 year battery @ 249.99 msrp
Warranty for milwaukee 5 year tool/ 3 year battery @ 169.99 msrp

What would you do?

Don't get me wrong. My tool box is full of Snapon tools and I spend around 10k a year on tools. For the first couple years.

I'll get hate for it, but I love my dewalt 20v with 4a battery. Lasts for days and does just about everything. I especially love the LEDS working in my dark @ss garage. And it was dirt cheap for the abuse/violence it sees.

I have 2 of the snap on 3/8, traded for one, and liked it so much ended up trading for a second. Mine are just the NiCad as well

The only hex drivers I have are 18v Dewalts anymore. Going to need to switch over to the 20's soon.

Be sure to get the 4a batteries. A little pricier, but I think I've charged it maybe twice in 5 months. Not daily use, but used pretty regularly. And it charges very fast.

I am the facility manager for an oil and gas company that rebuilds frac iron, we use cordless impacts on most of our missile rebuilds. I dont see a way you could use an impact harder than what we do, all 1 5/8" nuts all day long torqued as tight as possible before they get a final torque to 850 ft lbs.

I have used the Dewalts (batteries didnt hold up), Milwaukees (front cast hammer assembly falls apart), and now I have been buying the Ingersal Rand 20v. They seem to be holding up the best besides getting really hot, but its to be expected.

The Milwaukees are the worst, they are strong, but the battery connections short out and the cast hammer assembly has fallen apart on about 5 of them out of about 10 that we used. Milwaukee rep says its not design flaw...

We have the IR 20v cordless on our farm, we wore one out in 5-6 years, but I consider that really good. Considering it gets used on the daily. Beat banged, dropped in cow poop, you name it.

Tough as nails, I replaced it with one exactly like it!

Probably won't make you switch back.. I know DeWalt had issues with a bunch of batteries while back.... I have 5ah/6ah between sawzall and large 1/2" I can drain 5ah almost as fast as you can charge a dead one.. I don't have a large 1/2 DeWalt hi-tq yet.. naturally draining/charging a battery at a high cycle rate will kill it..
I guessing this is what you're buying/using Bodie?

Seams Milwaukee has 2 3/4" impacts
2864-22 Which is 1200/1500 3/4"
2767-22 which is 1000/1400 1/2"
2766-22 which is 750/1100 1/2"

IR 1/2" is biggest they make..
DeWalt makes a 3/4" but its currently no different than the 1/2" hi-tq versions..

If batteries don't last.. and **** falls apart.. doesnt really matter how much to it makes....

I like the IR 2235 ti-max with a 1/2" air line... Though that might over to your bolts

I just got the high torque 20v dewalt a few months ago, I don't use it daily but I'm definitely impressed with how it's done. Seems to have more power than my 1/2 titanium IR at 140psi
