    All the big equipment is gone now and these days 95% of my work is done with a cordless 1/4" impact.lol

    I've had one of those Blue Point AT-750 3/4" guns for close to 30 years, it has always met the 450 Lb. Ft. minimum for big truck wheel nuts, both regular Budds and Pilot wheels. And I do check them with a torque wrench, nobody is losing a wheel after I put them on.

    Re: Air impact

    When cordless tools first came out who would have thought the selection would extend way past drills.

    I chose Makita way back then. Great product line but I think I would have preferred Milwaukee.

    Too late now as I'm married to them. To the newcomers to the cordless game--- I would say "choose your platform wisely"

    I'm pretty certain I've had mine almost that long also.

    I like mine because it will do it's thing on a 3/8" hose. My I-R 261 has to have the 1/2" minimum hose.

    That's interesting to know. I used to have a dedicated length of 5/8"
    hose for it but it got chopped to feed my pneumatic squaring shear

    In the seventies Makitia came out with orange six volt drill motors that were so slow people started to use them as screw guns. We had a corded Porter Cable screw gun for putting up cabinets. And we used a Yankee screw driver for cabinet hinges. But then the cabinet hardware guy brought us some free 6 volt Makita drills, and with the new apex tips they were better than the Yankee screw driver. We used those things for a few years and then everything changed. There were the nine volt big long handled blue screw guns that had two speeds. And here we are today.

    If the boss would have bought new tips for the Yankee screw driver we would still be using it. It is still faster and better than battery.

    I have the Napa pro power/ carlyse in 3/8,1/2 and 3/4 and really like them. The 1/2” does lug nuts on pickups and skidsteers with ease unless someone got carried away installing them. I do also have the high torque 1/2” Milwaukee and it will do pretty much everything the air does if not more

    There are adapters, I have not looked for that specific one,,
    BUT,, those two are actually identical voltage,,

    Someone on YouTube disassembled the two brands of batteries.
    The two brands use the same type, and same quantity of cells,,

    The voltage is identical, even though one is rated 18V, and the other is rated 20V,,,

    Re: Air impact

    Anyone try one of these?https://www.amazon.ca/Battery-Adapte.../dp/B07T2BPGXM

    I use one similar to this to run my 20v DeWalt batteries in my 18v Dewalt tools... I don't even keep 18v batteries or chargers anymore.

    I''ve had this come up on Google searches before, but I've never tried it... seems a little sketchy. http://ruislipsigns.com/2019/06/03/c...ilwaukee-tool/

    Re: Air impact

    Not as sophisticated as a real adapter but I used a gutted Ryobi 18v flashlight as the battery holder/power source for a $10 (Goodwill, brand new) Remington pole saw (chainsaw on a pole). It's proper battery and charger were NLA.

    I carried this crude power source in a carpenter nailbag because that made the pole saw lighter. Butt-ugly, but I got a lot of work done with it before I bought a proper battery pole saw.

    I know dewalt sells their own version of that adapter, so they must work. I thought about buying one at some point, but they had a 20v drill w/ charger and two batteries on sale for not much more than the adapter (it came with a charger and a 20v lipo) so I went with the former. Glad I did, I like the new smaller (and lighter) drill.

    Oh yea... I've been using the $25 Chinese version of the 18 to 20 volt DeWalt adapter for over a year and it works great. The one I haven't tried is the one that is supposed to let you ( I think) use 20 volt DeWalt batteries in an 18 v. Milwaukee tool. I hope they are better at making adapters than they are at English translations.

    Re: Air impact

    My bud stopped by and we made a sport out of tearing the gun apart. I almost ordered 1 the other night, still trying to make up my mind but,,, an oil change wouldnt hurt them. One failed part. I gonna see today but i never have the luck shopping for this stuff. They offer kits but i am not inclined to put expensive parts in a gun can be bought new for 200$.
    I might order it at 53$. Already have it apart and washed out.
