I have been following this conversation for awhile. I'm in the market for an impact myself. 90% of the time it'll be used for changing summers and winters. However, I'd like it to be capable of more rigorous work.

I guess I'm wondering what torque would be acceptable?
There seems to be a "Professional Grade" I'm just not sure where the cut off is.

For example...
The cordless Craftsman @ 200 ft. lbs. for $99
The cordless Milwaukee @ 450 ft. lbs. for $380

Get the beastliest one you can afford. My Northern Tool cordless impact does lugnuts no prob, strut bolts ok, and ****s the bed when it comes to an axle nut that is on there real good.

I have had two of these. The first one lasted six years. I used it quite frequently and it had no trouble zapping off lug nuts and other large nuts/bolts. One day it just stopped working and I bought another one. It is pretty heavy and kind of a pain to maneuver around but it will do the job.
