    Hi Phil,
    I have been using makita tools for a long time, I also like Milwaukee 3/8" cordless impact wrench like you said. But now I want to buy a 1/2" cordless impact for car, after doing amount of research, I found this page ( https://www.powertoollab.com/best-co...ch-automotive/) have pertinent suggestions, also recommend Milwaukee 2454-2 Impact Wrench and Craftsman C3, I was going to try Bosch tools, but after reading it, I want to purchase Craftsman.
    My question is that how about Craftsman C3? My only worry is that its warranty only 1 Year. What's your suggestion?

    all depends

    Tommy, I have a couple of friends of what full time professional master mechanics and they both say that the Milwaukee 1/2" cordless impact is the badest boy on the block. The best they have ever used. Like this --- https://www.amazon.com/Milwaukee-276...63-22+m18+fuel
    I don't have one because I can't justify that kind of money when my Ingersoll 1/2" air impact works as well for jobs that require more torque than my M12 3/8" Milwaukee cordless impact. But if you want the best then the Milwaukee M18 cordless impact is the one to get. I hate to say it but in this case you get what you pay for. I personally would not invest my money in any Craftsman tools. They are more along the line of homeowner type tools. I did own a Craftsman 19v multiple tool set with skil saw, drill, sawzall, light and it worked fine for jobs around the house, but not for serious commercial work. BIG difference in torque between the Crastsman C3 and the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 1.2'' impact. The Craftsman C3 is rated at 200 ft. lbs of torque while the Milwaukee is rated at 1100 ft. lbs of torque. The Craftsman with 200 ft lbs is in a lot of cases not enough power to even take off car wheel lug nuts.

    Give you an example -- I have a wood burning pellet stove that I really like. This is my 10th year with a pellet stove. Home depot and Lowes sells their wood burning pellets this year at $ 5.19 for a 40 lb bag. Tractor Supply is $4 a bag and Rural King sells theirs for $3.19 a bag and they are good burning pellets. Tractor supply ones this year really sucked. Didn't burn as hot and a lot of ash. Rural King was on par with Home Depot and Lowes for the quality of the wood pellets but by far the best price. On a normal cold winter day I will go through one bag a day. Less than a $100 a month for home heat is pretty good in this part of the country. If you have a wife and kids who demand it be 80 deg.f all winter then you will use considerably more pellets. I keep my place around 70 deg f. Don't really like it much warmer than 70 in the winter.
    Bummer, the closest one is 2000 miles from me, I think I will have to go somewhere else to get my Black Diamond blasting material.
