<br>&gt; &nbsp;Based on suggestion earlier in this thread I am looking at the
Milwaukee 18 Fuel and some reviews have said for <br>&gt;normal car work this 
is too much torque, I can't imagine there is such a thing, once broken
loose there is no torque <br>&gt;and if I want it off, I want it off NOW, I 
don't want to have to get my blue wrench out.&nbsp; I have a IR2131 and
there <br>&gt;has been some things it no longer removes that it happily removed 
when it was 20 or so years younger.<br>&gt; <br>&gt;
