I just got a rigid 1/2" cordless impact for christmas. I dig it.

Although, I got a $50 sears gift card for christmas too... and I don't know what to spend it on.

I got a Dewalt 20V 1/2" cordless. Installed the wheels on the Jeep and then checked the lug nuts afterwards. They were tight.

I have this and love it, I barely ever touch the pneumatic impact anymore. Plus the big ass batteries are nice for using on my drill and 1/4" impact driver when I have other big projects and need them to last longer.

Also got one, used it to take a skid steer tire off that's probably been on for over 10 years. It didn't even feel like it was trying, took it off in a matter of seconds. Bobcat was in a field where getting air tools was basically impossible and I really didn't want to even try by hand.

I completely forgot about this. This falls in line with one of those never use it, but when you do categories. I bought it because people use it as an extra gauge on their sonics. It only frustrated my wife, but I like having it around anyways.

I've only used it a handful of times (diagnose an o2 issue with Herman, clear check engine codes, and to do some initial scanning on potential new vehicles). It is a very nice compact setup that does some custom gauge screens and engine code reading. I suspect it will help with some monitoring on the Kernel when the time comes.

I got the smaller version 1/2 impact. Wouldn't spin rusted on caliper bracket bolts' but great everywhere else.
Plus there is a 18v battery adapter to upgrade 18v tools to 20v!

I bought the leaf blower because it was half off. That has been very handy, from blowing snow off the windshield, as a blacksmith bellows for starting fire, and even blowing leaves!
