    Tools you have bought/want to buy feedback thread

    FWIW Cuppa Mate I used to always carry onboard a 1,000Nm Milwaukee 1/2” drive rattle and after wrist surgery had to downgrade to a 600Nm which felt like half the weight in reality and still getting the trackside job done
    Brands….whatever…..1,000Nm nut busting home/work power is too much for us Young Blokes out and about with GVM’s to also consider every added bonus weight reduction necessary too

    EDIT: Milwaukee’s older 1,000Nm nut buster was heaps heavier than that looking great sounding tool to your kit Cuppa Mate Apologies

    Not impressed with some of the design features of my new Stihl. I found out, the hard way, not to overreach the kick back lever. You badly burn of all your fingertips on the exhaust. Yeoww!!
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

Athritis is becoming a thing for me, & I find exertion can often be followed by pain for several days if I'm not careful. Disappointingly I don't think an electric rattle gun is suitable for doing up wheel nuts, but could I think be very handy for undoing a variety of fasterners. Just a few days ago I was lent an Hitach one to undo the front diff plug - so easy!

    Anyway Makita will be the brand as that's what I have batteries for. I'm wondering if anyone else has a Makita DTW700Z 'mid torque' model & if so would you recommend it as a general 'all rounder'? It is physically smaller & lighter than the Hitachi (HiKoki) one I used, but more powerful & with a variety of settings. It's weight is probably much the same as the long length of pipe I carry for leverage on stubborn nuts, & more flexible to boot.

    G'day Cuppa. I've got the DTW1002 so cant answer your question from experience, but seriously I'd think 700Nm would be ample for general duties. One thing I would personally be discerning about is buying a Japanese made one, not Chinese. When I bought my 1000Nm model, the Bunnings units were made in PRC but Total Tools sold the Japanese-made ones so I bought there.

    PS, you looking after my winch controller cap?

    Just to please McEducate myself too Folks, this new “Nut-Busting” rating is some sort of higher RPM startup or something?
    Old rattles were rated true available Nm without technology oomphs maybes?

    Thanks, for the advice on country of origin. If I buy, it will be online, so possibly hard to check. Maybe I could get someone here to check Total Tools for me, & then buy online from them if they still have the Japanese made ones.

    Cheers Plassy, that'd be good. I note the $399 ebay one has 3 years warranty on it, whereas Total Tools says it has 5 years for $6 more.

    Cuppa, I have a 1/4" Craftsman impact that other then wheel nuts and panhard bar nuts, has helped me a lot on my Patrol disassembly. I have to use an 1/4 to 1/2 adapter to be able to use my sockets. A friend has a 1/2" Dewalt impact gun that can pretty much break any stud he wants it he lets it go. I am prone to believe that any good brand impact made for 1/2 will have enough torque to wheel nuts.

    On a side note, my "hobby" 1/4 impact is still useful even for wheel nuts and panhard nuts... I just break them with a breaker bar and let the toy impact gun do spinning for me...

    Hey Cuppa, I just went through researching impact wrenches to add to my collection.
    Looked at high/medium and standard torque ones.
    I ended up with a standard 340nm purely for its size and weigh.
    Unless you are working in heavy machinery or construction anything more IMO is an overkill.
    To give you an idea, I stripped my sons Hilux and put it back together with this little thing. Pretty much every bolt. And never even tried it on a high setting
    I have a Milwaukee kit so went with them but Makita would have something similar.

    This thing fits in the palm of my hand.

    Hey Cuppa, only had Choinese-made DTW700Z at Total Tools and Bunnings. Might not be a choice there for you. The 1000Nm unit is still marked as made in Japan, or as the Total Tools guy told me, "made in Japan". He said every crate of Makita comes in from Choina.
