As above title, please could someone kindly advise which cordless impact driver is recommended for wheel changes and which for some areas of general kart maintenance.

1/2" or 3/8"??

Some links for which one to buy would be great.

Thanks

I've got a DeWalt set;


You can get attachments for 1/4, 3/8, & 1/2" sockets so it's really useful. The 4ah batteries last ages as well, so one will last all weekend on a single charge quite easily. I got mine while they had a deal on for about ÂŖ139 I think it was, so worth shopping around.

We use an old 1/4" drive impact with a long extension if I remember, which sometimes can struggle. New style brushless impact should cope no issues though really!

My set as recommended arrived today.

Tried and tested it and it's spot on.

Thanks 👍
