    I read about Makita, Bosch and dewalt perform better. there was a comparation done by Caranddriver ( I guess you already read it http://www.caranddriver.com/features...tested-gearbox). So I'll pick makita or hitachi due battery, however makita has better reputation. if we talk about track use, battery is what matters and size.

    Makita should win over battery and size,
    Bosch should be the best due torque and size

    talking about value..
    Maybe pick Milwaukee or hitachi..but again Milwaukee has better reputation as tool manufacture.

    I really wanted to buy a Snap On Cordless Impact, but at almost $600, its hard to swallow that price.
    I am looking for some cheaper alternatives, that still are durable, reliable, and with a decent warranty. What kind do YOU use?

    Anyone have any experiences with other brands? Post up your reviews whether its good or bad.

    A few other brands who make cordless impact guns:
    1) Bosch
    2) Makita
    3) Ingersoll Rand
    4) Milwaukee
    5) Snap On
    6) Hitatchi




    Mods: If this is the wrong section, my fault......just figured its the track guys that use these the most, so thats why I posted in here.
    What is the cheapest one that works good?

    Snap on isn't the same quality as it use to be. Their hand tools are better than craftsman still but for the price I don't think they are worth it. Now the power tools aren't really the best. I have actually found the craftsman grinders are better than the snap on. I broke 2 snap on power tools where craftsman didn't break at all. Craftsman does not have lifetime warranty on their power tools. You can buy an extra added warranty. I personally like craftsman and snap on for tools and I will say IR are really good air tools.

    I have the Milwaukee 1/2" big impact and with 1,100 ft.lbs (not inches) of breaking force, we haven't come across anything that we couldn't undo with it yet. Compressor doesn't even get turned on.. Thing is a beast.. Battery last pretty long too.

    This.

    The Fuel version is the one to get. Out guns everything and hits hard, feels super solid internally when it is hitting compared to all the other guns (including the cheaper non Fuel M18 Milwaukee 1/2" gun). A race team we work with has one DeWalt guy, One Makita guy and one Bosch guy. Our Milwaukee Fuel 1/2" impact out guns them all. We had some well worn and tired Dewalt stuff and before I bought more I just searched up what was the baddest 1/2" gun and then rebuilt our cordless race tool kit from there. Some of it is the brushless motor Fuel version, some of it their more budget normal line. Between Craigslist and E-Bay I got now:

    1/2" M18 Fuel Impact
    1/2" M18 Impact
    1/4" M18 Fuel Impact Driver
    1/4" M18 Impact Driver
    M18 Drill
    M18 Hammer Drill
    M18 Fuel Angle Grinder
    M18 Reciprocating Saw
    M12 3/8" ratchet
    M12 1/8" die grinder
    4 M18 2.0 batteries
    2 M18 3.0 Batteries
    4 M18 4.0 batteries
    3 M12 batteries

    Haven't looked back since. The 1/2" Fuel impact, the angle grinder, the drill and the 1/4" impact drivers get used the most. I had one drill die and short out it's battery but was under warranty still.

    Yup, I also have the Fuel Brushless set up as well Mike. Yes.. These new M18 Fuel Bushless units put most of the others to shame.. Very solid.
