I purchased the Milwaukee 2861-21CT Mid-Torque Impact Wrench with Friction Ring from my local Milwaukee dealer. What an amazing tool. Once again, Milwaukee has hit the ball out of the park with this Impact Wrench. I have a Tacoma 4WD pick-up truck, and using the MIDDLE setting on the Impact wrench, this thing popped the lug nuts off like they weren't even fastened down. I was shocked and amazed. I didn't have to use the top and most powerful setting to break these lug nuts loose. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This impact wrench has a LOT of power. I would match this tool up with my air impact wrenches any day of the week. However, you have to keep your expectations REAL. If your working on heavy duty trucks, buses, farm equipment, industrial motors and related equipment types, this might not be the tool for you. You might need the FULL size Milwaukee Impact Wrench for those situations.
Over the last couple of years, I've slowly changed out all of my power tools from various other brands to EXCLUSIVELY Milwaukee. I've totally embraced the M18/M12 Fuel system. I still have some off brand power tools, which I keep as loaners for people that want to borrow something. I NEVER lend my Milwaukee Tools. What I've learned is this. If you buy junk, no matter how you polish it, at it's core, it's still junk. I'm NOT a Milwaukee employee, and I'm NOT being remunerated in any way by Milwaukee for this review. I love the brand and I love the products that I've purchased. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this tool.
