Yeah, its $129 currently. Part of me is really tempted......

Its $99 for an extra battery at HD, so for $30 more your getting the 3/8. Sounds like a win to me

I use a 2.0 on my 3/8s Milwaukee and if I charge it 2x a week I'd be surprised

Thats what I meant I mean. I'm not going to be using it every day for 8 hours a day. I'd be using it once a month at the most, for maybe a few hours. So for me 2ah is probably fine.

Guess this means I can donate my brushed Harbor Freight corded 1/2" impact to Goodwill now. :)

Do you know how much it sucks running 150ft of extension cord out to the car JUST to use an impact wrench?

Also, it barely makes enough torque to tighten lugs. The power is terrible.

That said for $40 it has saved my bacon quite a few times with things like Steering Gear Pitman arm nuts, and axle nuts. Took forever and I thought it was going to melt the brushes, but it busted them loose.

I'll probably keep it around at my dads house but I'll keep the Rigid with me at my Apartment.

Glad I picked up the 3/8th package as well then, it will also be useful for working on some items with cars.

Both could be useful at a track day if you had a spare set of tires, or brakes...etc.
