picked up some Milwaukee cordless impacts and ratchet, They are nice, hope to not fire up the compressor so much.

Anyone using them.

I bought a milwaukee corded impact wrench many years ago and 
I think it has the capability to go to 300 ft. lbs. of torque, so it's 
a capable tool, IMO, and has served me well.

I use the "old" Easco ratchet set that I bought in high school.
Still work very well and not a problem!

Not Milwaukee, but use the Bosch version everyday. Technology has come a long way. Don't sell your compressor just yet though, if you look at the specs the compressed air impact guns are much more powerful.

If you need a tool and don't buy it...
you'll eventually pay for it...
and not have it.

DeWalt 1/2 inch drive can really twist things.I've had it for 3-4 years and use it for many many project.  It use the same 18 volt batteries drills and other common tools use. Wink

They've got 20, 60 and 120 volt stuff now with lots of torque. Almost no need for air tools anymore. Pricey but worth it.

If I had a better compressor, I'd have some air tools, theya re still pretty good. I do agree with a cordless impact, drill, saw, etc

We use 20v Ingersoll 1/2" impacts at work. They develop over 1000lbs of torque. They'll twist off a 3/4" bolt if you're not careful.

I had a cheapo Black & Decker cordless ratchet back in the 90s.  I used it all the time until the battery died. By then they had discontinued it and I couldn't find another. Not something for heavy-duty service, but it was surprisingly strong. 

Milwaukee makes one now, but you're at $150 by the time you get the battery and charger.  I keep waiting for them to go on sale at Home Depot, but I've been waiting two years now.

I got a  Ingersoll Rand 20V impact,  plenty powerful for anything i'd ever want done, i've even made a adapter to a drill chuck, lot's of broken drill bits in my future.

  But it was free,  it's retail price ( the whole kit, recharger and extra battery)  is almost as much as my compressor.   But i never would have bought it if I had to come up with the money.   I won it as a contingency prize after winning a race a couple of years ago.
