    I also found out when you let the lift down on one, a replacement housing is about $35... it still worked, but was hard to hold on to.

    I had thought about getting the one inch but it was not on the market quite a while ago. Also I do not plan on building any bridges so the 3/4 inch drive fuel for me.

    I have the Dewalt 20V MAX XR (DCF899M1). I used it to get many of the lug nuts off and it even got some of the nuts off the two piece rims.

    Some of the flange nuts on the rims were really stuck, took one of the wheels to a local shop that works on trucks and their big 1" air gun couldn't get them all off. In hind sight, they may have been able to if they let the air compressor catch back up.

    I ended up getting one of those geared torque multiplier lug wrenches, which made getting the rim nuts off easy. Just double check what direction you are going, because that thing will definitely strip the nut and stud without even knowing it.

    Some of the lug nuts where on pretty good, so instead of abusing the Dewalt and its battery, I used the multiplier to break free the ones that the Dewalt didn't get quickly.

    The newest Milwaukee 1/2 inch drive 18V. Unbeatable. Walks all over my over-priced Snap-On guns.

    The Milwaukee 1/2" high torque has more power than the 3/4". I have both at work (school bus fleet) and we gave the 3/4 to the other department and kept the 1/2" for us. I like it so much I bought one for myself.

    No kidding?!

    But, yeah, Milwaukee? They're hard to beat. For almost ANY tool.
