I am considering getting a cordless impact driver in the event I need to chang a tire on the road. Any thoughts which ones seem to be most reliable? I have a torque wrench to finish them off.

I use the Ryobi 18 volt One+ system for everything cordless that I can. I have had them for years and am still happy with them.

Wow, do you know how easy it is to over torque a lug nut with those devices!!! [emoticon]

Maybe you can over-torque a bolt with a 4-way or the jack handle that comes with the vehicle, but I'm sure I would hurt myself trying.

Not unless you are truly feeble. I doubt most trailers need more than 75 lb-ft, small ones might need even less. (I've seen cars that called for 50!)

Indeed Ryobi is surprisingly good. A battery failed on mine in 11 months and they sent me a new one with much higher capacity. I don’t carry it when travelling.
