on wheel nuts
i use it on 1 and then tighten with wheel brace
even setting 2, i think would over torque wheel nuts, it would be close though

Yeah, im already leaning towards it. I used a Ryobi electric wipper snipper recently, and it started smoking. And stopped working. So im a bit suss as well.
I like the Makita ones.
i had a roofer out recently and he had all ryobi gear
i asked him why not makita
he said if a makita falls off the roof it would cost $700
if a ryobi falls off the roof, it costs $300
i probably have 10 ryobi tools and about 6 or 7 batteries

that ryobi brushless is a monster
on hi torque 4
i reckon it will undo a harmonic bolt
haha

talk to guys in the trade doing it (I have this advice from them) ...
use 3/4" Sq Drive impact wrenches (yeah as used on trucks) with a min 200psi of air
one even uses 7/8" drive versions with unsplittable impact sockets
why? factory torque is 275 ft lbs he said :eek:

So probably the Ryobi is as good as the Makita hopefully.
Have to check out the warranties for both.

Generally get extended warranty on Ryobi gear if you register it on their website.

I have a number of different battery and corded Ryobi tools.....never have a problem with them.

This is the reason for puttin it out there.
To get something that will last.
Maybe Holden should take heed and do the same with their parts lol.

What about a 6.0 LS? What are they torqued up too? My CP pneumatic gun got my bolt undone and rattled back up tighter than my 600mm bar could.

1/2" Milwaukee are one of the better ones.
