kajun, When dealing with cordless anything, go with the brand you are committed to and have spare batteries. Batteries are your weak link.
About 15 years ago I got tired of the cheap cordless drills and tried a Dewalt from Lowes. The salesman there said, if you don't like, bring it back. Never did, been committed to Dewalt from that point.
I hate the dewalt XRP battery, they only last for a few years. Some may say theirs last longer, and may if not used very much. Lithium batteries are too expensive and only hold half the charge. Find Nickle-Metal batteries, mine seem to last forever. I have to buy them from ebay and they are after markets made in china, where I was told dewalts are now made, not sure.
I have both 1/4 and 1/2 inch impact. If there is a not the 1/2 inch can't remove I have a 3/4 inch drive ratchet, sockets and cheater bar that will do the trick or twist off the nut. Love both my impacts. Like the cordless sawsall, cordless right angle grinder. Ocassionally use the circular saw and right angle drill. Love the 1/2 inch hammer drill. There isn't a day that goes buy that I don't use my dewalt tools for something. Carry them in the truck, have a 12v charger in the truck, so there with me all the time.
