    I find many uses for it and I love it, but would I buy it again? probably not.
    I find so many times the gun does not fit in a lot of places so I may still give it a go!

    What is a good cheap 240V to 120V power converter? How many watts needed for a makita 18v charger?

    I'd just buy one LXT tool here with the charger.

    My first was a LXT drill from bunnings, then just bought batteries and skins from US.

    I am kind of regretting the choice to get the ryobi gear given the pricing on some of the makita gear now , but other than the gearbox failing in my drill (which was replaced under warranty) it has all been good

    newer maikta 18v range here - used for work trucks and DIY at home for the last 3-4 yrs , got a btw251 (impact wrench) , btd141 (driver) , torch , blower/vacuum and angle grinder all using the same 18v 3.0ah batteries + charger. Gets alittle addictive with the various tools too easy to click on "buy now" on ebay !
    the skins of the wrench and driver are slowly tearing away with grease and general dropping and throwing all over the place but motors are still fine. The wrench is very small and decently weighted , and will take off every short of a crank bolt (200-250nm?!) with ease. You just hold it firm on the bolt/nut and it hammers it loose.

    Try the btw450/1.

    I used it again today to rip wheel nuts off, hub apart and change hub nut/axle nut.

    Best battery operated device I've ever owned. Wife would disagree, but would be a close second.

    how does the big fella last on the 3.0 ah battery ? I have the smaller BTW251 and with small medium nuts n bolts (anything on a car less the crank bolt) it lasts quite awhile. Whats the NM rating ?

    $700 in stores and about $550 from aus sellers.

    If you use the offer less option from the above seller he will only knock it down to $440 but still cheap.

    Well I got the makita btw450 for $450 which included two batts and Aussie charger. It was delivered via USPS and took two weeks. Don't trust the USPS tracking as it still has my package in the USA! Took two weeks and sellers ship a day after purchase.

    Also bought a blt063 right angle wrench. As ya guys with impact wrenches know it doesn't fit in half the situations you put it in. Got it from another seller and they delivered it for 15 bucks via dhl. Took three days! Dhl's tracking is unbelievable.

    So all up $650 for a btw450 kit and btw063 right angle wrench for $650. Looking at roughly $1000 for the same from an Aussie reseller.

    Any updates on this?
    I'm looking for something decent, currently this is top of the list ($699 w/ charger and 2 4ah batteries), but I see makita has 5ah kits now...

    I've got an AEG

    http://aegpowertools.com.au/products...-impact-wrench

    Love the thing, replaced the clutch in the wives Jeep recently - it just blitzed through the 19mm bolts that your normally swinging off with a rachet. Swapping wheels over at the track is a piece of piss. Battery also seems to last for ever. Very happy with it. This is with the 4.0ah battery.

    Good to hear. I was looking at one of these in Bunnings the other day, and am seriously considering one.

    I seem to be the only one here with a good one...
    Mine hasn't failed on a wheel nut and does all the usual 19mm suspension bolts along with everything else on a car no worries.

    Truth be told, I've been waiting for it to die for 6 months.
    It looks absolutely fucking wrecked, the brushes are starting to go as is the bearing but its still good on power. Still gets used daily rain/hail/shine in everything from sand quarry's to waste transfer stations.
