Almost all of my tool use is for DIY work on my cars and motorcycle, so I have tons of hand tools and exactly one power tool - a DeWalt corded drill. Or should I say, “had,” because I recently moved from the US to Australia and had to sell the drill because the power here is 240v instead of 110v. Around the same time I started to realize that I could make good use of an impact wrench in the garage. I can see that cordless is the way to go for an impact wrench, because for breaking loose a nut you need all the torque at low RPMs, which you won’t get from an AC motor. I’m not looking to invest in air tools right now.
So now I’m in the market for a cordless drill and impact wrench (two separate tools, to be clear). In the US I would probably have bought DeWalt or Milwaukee tools, but here in Oz you don’t really find either of those brands (they are around but uncommon). My primary choices appear to be Makita, Ryobi, AEG, or Bosch. It looks like the Bosch tools are more expensive than the other three, and from digging around Toolguyd it looks like AEG (and maybe Ryobi?) is a TTI brand, who also makes Milwaukee. I’m just looking for something of decent quality that will last, suitable for light home and garage use. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
