I went to check it out. The idea is great, I know there are other brands out there with a similar product but this one at walmart has a short handle for me (I'm 6ft tall). The upper box is huge but very thin plastic and the hinges won't hold when packed with tools, but it's not intended to be kept by hand anyway. Too bad the handle is too short for me because it's really interesting.
You might want to check out the Husky Connect Rolling System sold a Home Depot. More expensive system but, It looks like it has a taller stack height.

I don't need this often but when I do it is a Godsend.

It is not variable speed, it is corded and it is bulky but at 1050ft-lb (1423Nm) of torque, removing rusted Axle nuts is like spreading butter.

Bauer Model #1882E-B, $120.00 at Harbor Freight.

I saw that in this month's catalog and I was wondering about how well it works. I'm not a fan of corded impact wrenches, but if it's putting out 1,050 lb.-ft., I'm sure it gets the job done. It would be nice to have for things that my 300 lb.-ft. Craftsman C3 impact can't handle (which isn't much!)
Plus the price is more attractive than the high torque Milwaukee M18 impact.

The 1/2 in Milwaukee M18 impact is 450 ft-lbs, for a cordless that is high, most are around 250 ft-lbs. 450 ft-lbs will get most stuff but it won't get the really messed up stuff.

Most basic cordless impacts are in the 250-400 ft.-lb. range, but I'm talking about the big boy Milwaukee... https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools ... _200684083
1,400 ft.-lb. is for when you're not messing around!
The bare tool is a bit cheaper at $200. An additional $182 for the battery and charger is a bit of a ripoff https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools ... _200685183

My cousin actually just bought the Kobalt 24 volt model from Lowe's for $190ish, and that one puts out around 650.

Then there's the Earthquake XT 20 volt 1/2" impact from HF that is comparable to this Milwaukee and the Snap On impact. I've heard good things about that impact, my uncle has one. https://www.harborfreight.com/20v-max-l ... 63852.html

My cousin who just bought the Kobalt impact had a Bauer cordless impact that claims 450 ft.-lb. but it was a piece of crap. Maybe he just got a bad one, but it took FOREVER to break a wheel bolt that my Craftsman 300 ft.-lb. impact took off easily. He tried both the 1.5ah battery and the 3ah battery, and the latter only yielded minimal improvement.
