Re: Craftsman 20v 1/2" Impact On Clearance


Are you on a battery platform for grownup tools already? That price is about what a bare tool costs for everyone else, and that Craftsman with 350lb/ft is woefully outdated.

For what itís worth, the Milwaukee Fuel is only a couple bucks more and has a 700lb/ft rating.

I have an old 18v dewalt that has a slightly lower rated ft/#, and it's pretty good. That said, if you have any existing batteries or plans for a battery system, definitely stick with it. Anything current is way more powerful.
