I had a 1/2 cordless IR, and drill. Brought the suck. I beleive they were out for a year before being taken off the market and rereleased with changes.
I bought the new Milwaukee 3/8 impact and Drill. Use the impact everyday for all kinds of things from working on motors to tightening lug nuts before hand torqueing etc. And the drill alot to. Going on a year and no issues.
