Snap-On Cordless Impacts

Hi, guys. I'm in the market for a new cordless impact. I have been looking at the newer Snap-On ct8850 of course, but then I seen the ct6818 that I can get pretty cheap. I have looked all over and haven't found and consumer feedback on the ct6818 impact. Do you have any experience with it? THANKS!

I have used both of the 3/8 versions professionally. Based on that experience I would suggest the 6818. The newer updated impact was terrible. I had to send it in for repair 3 times in a year. Also, it lost a lot of power after a few months. The last straw with it was a fuel rail bolt it wouldn't remove, I checked the bolt torque, it was 23lbft ��

I still have my older version, works great.

Just be very sure it's what you want. I get that Snap On tools are cool, but they are the Oakley of the tool world. You can almost always find what you need for a quarter the price elsewhere.

I have used a Snap On 1/2 inch cordless and like it a lot. Coming off for lugs is EZ, going on use it to snug the wheel lugs then use a torque wrench to set proper lug torques

I have Dewalt's 1/4", 3/8", + 1/2" love them all. The 1/2" almost makes too much torque!

I had Snap-On in the past. Good tool but they don't support them long term. They drop the lines and discontinue the batteries and chargers after only a few years.

For lugs, maybe one of these. http://www.popularmechanics.com/home...pact-wrenches/

I’m thinkin about one of these 12v 3/8” drive DeWalt impacts for general purposes. https://www.gamut.com/p/dewalt-cordl...quare-MjE2NDM2
The battery matches a set of cordless drill and screwdriver I bought a few years ago. That would be a plus, not having another type of battery and charger around.
