    as others have stated, for price I would go with dewalt, especially because you have batteries that will work on other things. I have yet to be disappointed with anything dewalt. If you have the money, check out the snap-on. The ingersolls look interesting as well, and I would look into those if I didn't care about battery compatibility.

    If they own Souix then they kind of make their own.

    That's what I was thinking too.

    not to start a debate here, as it is not relevant to the topic, but Ford Motor Company used to own Volvo, does that mean a Volvo s80 is made by Ford? I know some people consider it the same thing, I don't though. Many companies own other companies but have no bearing on the manufacturing process, especially in the tool world. Check out Apex Tool Group, lots of companies under the same parent company- though very different tools at very different degrees of quality. Just my opinion... yours' may differ.

    I have 4 Milwaukees.
    1/4" Hex & square grive
    3/8" square drive
    1/2" Square drive.
    All are the newer 18 volt Lithium Ion
    The 1/2" is 450 ft/lbs.
    I think that is under rated / what a work horse.
    I too have been using it more than my composite 1/2" IR2131
    Just wish it had a variable torque setting.
    It is so darn easy to over torque bolt with it at first.
    I am going to invest in some pre-set torque sockets.

    I recommend buying a quality torque wrench (snap on) instead of torque sticks, they are not that accurate.

    I have always wondered how these work, it is usually not very clear. Are they simply made to different "springyness" and absorb impacts past a certain point, or what? Also, how inaccurate are they? For things like wheels, wouldn't +/- 10% be acceptable, or are they worse than that?

    I have 2 snap-on torque wrenchs 1/2"
    Also a 3/8"
    OTC 1/4"
    I just like to spin bolts/nuts up quick close to torque with a gun and final hand torque always.
    The Milwaukee is so darn fast and powerful I have shot past the spec. needed.
    I have learned to be quicker with the trigger and short bursts.
    With the air gun I would just turn the regulator down
    There is no adjustment with the milwaukee, but the portability is great.

    They are supposed to kick back at a specified amount of torque. The problem is if you have a good strong impact it can over come the torque stick and over torque. I have seen some wheels torqued in excess of 180ftlb and it was supossed to be 100. With a torque stick there are too many varibles like the operator, impact, air pressure(or I guess now days battery charge), and the torque stick itself. Yeah +/- 10% would be acceptable for a wheel, it is not like it is a internal engine part but at the same time a wheel is a safety matter so I would not trust a torque stick. If a wheel falls off it could kill somebody. These tire shops and inspection stations that use torque sticks also warp alot of rotors. I always pull a torque wrench on a wheel.
