No love for the ingersoll rand 1/2 inch impacts?
Milwaukee fuel impacts are beasts. Hi-torque mode will pull just about anything. Even the 1/4” impact driver is legit - I pulled the exhaust header bolts from a 72 Triumph gt6 2liter straight six with really hard to reach bolts with the little impact that could. If you’re going to buy into a system - Milwaukee is the best.

And for the record - not only did I use the 1/4” impact to pull the exhaust header bolts, in some cases I had to use extensions and a u-joint. It should not have worked. After that I pulled the transmission bolts (about a dozem that hold transmission bell housing to engine 1/2” fine thread, torque spec of around 70lbs iirc), disassembled and reassembled the transmission and reinstalled using only the 1/4” impact.
There is very little point in getting the 1/4 drive impact driver with the small battery, at least not for automotive use. Its fine if you want to hang dry wall, or build a shed, or many other around the house uses, but it doesn't have the power to do much but drive screws. For automotive use you really need an 1/2" or 3/8" Impact, not an Impact Driver.

Sorry gents but that 1/4" drive impact that's top of the polls right now is only good for interior panels and hose clamps. The community would be best served to look at a quality 3/8" drive to pair with a good breaker bar.
Something like the W5131P is a great all-around cordless impact.

Pretty much, there is really no point buying that. I would go with a 1/2 inch for anything serious.
