I have the 1/4” Milwaukee cordless off of a recommendation off of one of DTRs videos. I use it to take bolts off and put them on. Does not have enough torque to break the tighter bolts free, but starting them with any wrench will work. I think the size of the 1/4” wrench is also a little smaller which helps get into smaller places better.

Honestly though working on my vehicles, most jobs are so short the cordless ratchet sits on the shelf and I just use a regular socket wrench.

I’m looking at a 1/2” Milwaukee impact wrench to take the big rusted bolts off.

I have the 3/8” M12. I use it often. As said, it isn’t super strong, as most air ratchets aren’t strong like an impact. I pull on the M12, like with any ratchet, to break loose bolts if I have space to pull it. Then squeeze and let it do the work.

It's normal for older FICMs but not good, I would keep an eye on it on cold starts.

I have a 3/8" and use it a lot, only has about 25-30 lbs of torque. I want to get the 1/2" next. Couldn't see the need for a 1/4" but if I had one I'm sure I'd use it. I do use the 1/4" impact quite a bit, pretty handy with the quick change bits. And from all my research only get genuine batteries whether M12 or M18

You'll love the 1/2" impact, one of my all time favorite tools. It's heavier than air but it works circles around my old air impact. The one I linked earlier from a seller on fleabay was the best deal I could find. Brand new from an authorized seller for under $200 Get the high torque fuel! I also have 1/4" and a 3/8" Fuel impacts, the 1/4" is light and handy, I used it to drive all the screws last year when I built my pump house plus you can get square drive 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 bits so it's handy on vehicles too. I bought a 1/2" for my son for school and he put it head to head with another kid who has a snap-on, he said the Milwaukee out performed it easily and he only has a 5 AH battery. I found a 2 pack of 6 AH batteries for about $120, if you don't use it that much you can easily get by with one battery. Mine was out the whole time I was doing the 5 speed swap in the Ranger and it still had half the battery left. The only battery I had to charge on that whole job was the M12 on the ratchet.
For home use a 5 AH battery is prolly plenty, I wouldn't get anything smaller. If you don't already have an M18 charger I found a genuine 5 AH battery and charger for under $100, that's what I got for the kid. You can always pick up a second battery later. I have extras because of my farm shop, I'm always working on something plus I have multiple tools. The 6 AH added a surprising amount of extra weight over the 5 AH but it lasts forever. I probably would have been fine with 5's, where the 6's shine is drilling holes in fence posts or doing a lot of driving screws on a building project. They don't add power just longer life.
One thing, you gotta watch fleabay to get genuine stuff, the clones look very deceptive. If it says "for" Milwaukee it's a clone

i got the 1/4 and run a 3/8 adapter most of the time the torque wasnt so different between the to and it gets int o smaller spaces
first real job i used it on was my daughter had the water pup in her jeep go out. its been a good little truck and worth every penny i paid for it but its a PITA to work on.
that little wrench paid for itself right there on that one job
as was said i use it to bust em loose then let it do the work by the time i got down there and got all the tools etc i needed to do the job with her having both electric ad manual fan clutches... it was 3 pm before i even started and she got off work at 4:30 and i wanted to pick her up in the jeep. didn't quite make it but it was way closer than it would have been with just a ratchet. had to send the wife off in the caddy to get her but it worked out

i am sold on mine and will grab a 3/8 when i get the chance just to have both on hand.
i got the little 12 volt impact wrench and damn if that thing didn't bust the lugs lose on the wifes caddy
100fp to spec and while it was about the limit of the thing... i was still impressed it broke them loose.
now i need a full collection of Milwaukee stuff
the 18 volt impact would bust the lugs on the truck no problem from what i hear and would be a great addition at some point

There has only been a couple of times, but I would almost get the non fuel. The head is a lot bigger and has harmed me a few times. That being said, I have the 3/8 and love it. I went with 3/8 because the sockets go down decently small but also go up pretty big too. Anything besides that, its probably delicate enough I wouldn't want to use the ratchet or big enough that I should be using the impact.

@ChrisSki @SparkyF250 @john galt @backhoebill @Weberman3 I hope I'm not missing anyone. I was thinking maybe the fuel and non fuel version of the 3/8" would be nice because there is a 20 ft/lb of difference between the two and a could adapt up or down with one adapter. The only reason I could see using a 1/4" adapter is for not being able to wrench in tight spaces. Seems like the size difference between the fuel and non fuel will warrant enough to get them both. I'd like to have all 6, but that's a little overkill.

Are the ratchet head covers worth getting? Seems like they just keep the wrench all pretty...

I'll likely break all of the 1/2" and 3/8" jobs by hand then just use the cordless to speed up the job. If it's something on the suspension side of things, I'll like get one of the 1/2 fuel M18's from CPO, there are some really good combo deals on there.

Although, I'm about to do my front end and the 1/2" might be pretty beneficial for the tight spaces.

If you bought swivels and 1/4 extensions, I would get the Fuel 3/8s. There has only been like 1 time I wasn't really able to adapt my way out of it and needed to get a wrench. I have a hex impact driver, and I bought hex to square adapters. So its smaller than my big impact, but can do more than my ratchet. Plus I got all three adapters so I have 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2. They recently came out with a new 3/8 M12 stubby impact and it really packs a punch for its size.

Thanks for the recommendation. I've got this sitting in the garage now. It is certainly the stoutest of the three ton jacks between HF and the parts stores.

My son has had the 3/8” stubby for a couple months now, and it rips lug nuts off the F250. My 1400lb hi-torque unit is as strong as my 3/4” Ingersoll 2145qi, and will get most things, even on my equipment. I agree about not having the fuel ratchet. I bought the standard M12 because it is more “petite”. Not as strong, but no regrets. It still can be tight, only showing that the fuel version wouldn’t work in some spots. Home Depot has a bunch of “buy this and get free this” deals, including some batteries for free. They usually have the best pricing, and are 10% off for vets. My 9amp batteries will run my large leaf blowers for over an hour straight.
