the impacts are hard on the bolts i just use the drill of this set its got enough power to turn most fasteners i have tried. they are light and the batteries last so long i forget where i left the charger sometimes, and i use it daily

I hope your not talking about that Makita. They are only rated at 200 IN lbs, not FT lbs.

We have two guys here that had that setup and went with the lithium ion batteries instead. Problem is the regular batteries crap out after a year. Luckly I have a battery repair down town can repair a battery for thirty dollars. I hope It works out well for ya.

lithium ion. they dont care about the cold like LA batteries either. i have the 18v makita drills and 1/2in impact set in my work truck and those batteries are out in the cold and work fine for quite a while even if they were charged a couple months ago
