    Don't have a model# for you, but it's hard to go wrong with Milwaukee.

    Ditto. If it's really stubborn use the gear reduction attachment and it will do the job.

    I use a top of the line matco infinum 1/2 drive impact, it is supposed to make 1300 ftlbs of torque. I do know its stronger than the dewalt because the shop has dewalt tools and the matco will effortlessly remove bolts that the dewalt cant remove. Its not in our budget at the shop to buy tools off the tool truck its nice to know I got what I paied for.

    Good to know the price is worth it because, yeah, MATCO and SNAP-ON, they're pricey.
