Watch some AVE on YouTube. The tool guy is pretty biased

Mulfukie is good stuff. I personally have Ridgid and have abused the brown out of it. Had two batteries crap out on me after I left an impact out in rain twice for over a week

He is FAR from biased what are you talking about? He states specs and tests each tool equally.

And yeah I saw aves milfukie dead after a year:/ big fan of uncle bumblefuck though

He is sponsored by lots of those companies.. if you watch uncle bever videos you know what I'm talking about. Ave is super skeptical about his numbers. There was a prequel to testing some old snap on few weeks ago. He's going to replicate the tool guy tests shortly


Just watch the vajeho you college liberal arts major

I didn't even know about fool guy until recently but it's horrible watching him... same style as all other viral YouTube channels. Telling me I must like I must click etc...

Liberal arts major

FAKE NEWS JACK

Btw it's pretty hard to be biased when he's using his skidmore wilhem or whatever to test the tools. Whether he's sponsored or not shouldn't really matter, to me it seems the tests that he puts the tools through are legitimate.

Don't get me wrong, I've watched Ave for years.

Is Snap On really made in the USA? Don't have any but maybe some can check the fine print on the labels.

Actually, there is a real Snap-On manufacturing facility about 60 miles away in Murphy, NC. Got a factory outlet store also but they are still 3+ times HF.

I read it, and still don't think the guy is biased. Especially since we're talking about cordless impacts here not pneumatic. I get what you're saying, everyone will sell out for the right price so who knows?

Either way I'm really not worried about 10 ft-lbs or something silly like that. If the tool does what I need it to do for the price I paid, and offers a good warranty, then I'm sold. That's it.
