The Milwaukee 1 inch drive with the 5.0 batteries will wear you out. It’ gets pretty heavy swapping out tires from one 5 ton to another. After using one I’m going with the 3/4 drive Milwaukee M18.
Yeah, I tried that on my truck recently. I'm 240# and hung from the bar like an ape and nothing happened. Admittedly, the wheels hadn't been broken free on my truck in over a decade.
What model did you end up getting? I’m seeing several different numbers with the same torque specs as #2864 mentioned earlier, with a fairly big price difference on Amazon. Already have a 12ah battery, just looking for a bare tool.Thanks for the informative replies, I bought the new 1/2 inch cordless Milwaukee m Fuel M 18 with the 8,2 battery . pops them right off. its heavy but man does it bust them loose , Cant say thank you enough guys , I was that 225lb fella wanting a young solider B to break them loose when I had a 10 foot cheater bar on them and they SCREAMED when I finally them got them loose. got 20 % off for black Friday 10% Mil discount but it was still 280. for the tool and 105$ for a battery and charger
Oh no, don’t get them started on anti-seize and lug nuts.don't forget the
"never seize". I go through a small cn every couple years swapping out the studded tires every spring on all the vehicles, except the M35. I just run them off wiggle the wheel and slop some on, then tighten them back up. I bought a couple trucks up here where the wheels were frozen on the drum.
Milwaukee's webpage is not very clear in this regard (apples-to-apples comparison of similar model tools).What model did you end up getting?
