Did it not insert? Shows up fine on my computer...

It's just the 18V Makita impact "driver." Usually used for driving screws. I just use an 1/4th or 3/8s adapter. I'd prefer that type of stuff to break, rather than the bolts I'm trying to get out.

I have a corded dewalt 1/2 inch & a cordless dewalt. Both work fine.

In the JY, I'll bring my 1000W Honda generator, my little harbor freight compressor and my 1/2" NAPA impact. The generator runs the impact for about 10 seconds pretty well. This also runs my IR hammer really well.

I can't imagine hauling all that stuff out to the junkyard. Will they let you drive up to the cars or something?

Probaly 10 years old, I did replace the trigger once.
It will snap lug studs off a one ton if you hammer enough.

I have a fold out wagon from Costco. Everything fits neatly into that with room to spare for parts. Works awesome.

I'm surprised the yard lets you bring in a generator.

I have the corded Milwaukee and their little 12 volt cordless (battery in handle). I love both. Wonderful tools.

One question I had was torque variability. I saw how that one Millwaukee has 2 'modes'. Do most of these impacts have a setting? I know air guns have a 1, 2, 3, 4 dial where you can roughly set power (divide the max by your number).

Looks like there's 6 left.

The two modes are great.

Brushless is best.

It's easy to go to another yard.

Brushless might be better, but I've run my Milwaukee tools through 15 or so batteries, and not one has had a motor problem. The NICd cells held up better than the V18 Li.
all but the skillsaw and flashlight have a variable trigger that isn't hard to operate.

I'm using a used Makita that was bought and used exclusively daily at a dealership. It's now 13 years old. Batteries are still good.
The damn circlip is ****ty though.

I've taken my daughter's old Northern Tool Big Red Wagon more than once to the PNP, the handle is a little short so I have a piece of string tied to the handle to pull it. Our PNP has wheelbarrows you can use, but on the sale weekends they are all taken before I get my lazy ass out of bed. The wagon is actually better than the barrow IMHO.

Lol, just busted another 3/8 extension on my B230 head bolts with a breaker bar. Will the Dewalt 3/8" (1500 something in/lbs torque) break em free? Safe to use on head bolts?

Damn things are on tight, ha. And for good reason, I suppose...

125 ft. lbs. of torque should do it, I'd think..

why are you using 3/8 hardware to remove head bolts?
