    Not De Walt for sure, but Milwaukee might.

    My DeWalt electric impact is rated at 700ft-lb of break away torque. I see Milwaukee is pretty powerful too. Though all my batteries ans chargers are DeWalt. I don't want to invest a ton back into Milwaukee. Hell they are all made in the same place so it doesn't really matter. Kobalt too has a very nice selection of impacts.

    Hey I had done that before too. Four foot cheater pipe on my ratchet. Ended up stripping a few ratchets in the process. Though I was trying to break free fifty year old suspension bolts on my old Tbird. She claimed a lot of my older tools. Oh and blood too... there’s always blood.

    my understanding is that the lifetime guarantee from Craftsman is a thing of the past.

    Yeah that is an issue. I thought Stanley/Black&Decker were going to honor prior warranty purchased tools. I'm not sure how it works for sure. I think I only took back one or two items in 20 years.

    I know, I know. They're not impact sockets.

    I gave my brother a nice ratchet one time, he broke it using it with a cheater pipe, I nearly broke him. That is tool abuse, plain and simple. :mad: Breaker bars are what you want there, and if it's a problem with just the right angle use a twelve-point socket. And remember that if you rotate a six point socket 90 degrees on the drive, you get a different angle that may work.
    There used to be a shirt in circulation that said something like, "I gave blood today - I worked on my SHO!" I opened a finger up real good when trying to get the oil filter off, that the monkey at the dealer must have put on with an air wrench.:rant: Stitches and a couple of weeks in a finger brace....
    According to the AvE user on YouTube, the HF EarthquakeXT electric impact is damned good, not even counting price.

    I agree with breaker bars. However I have broken them as well. Guess I am a what you call a spokes person for "stress testing" tool limits. Heh last night at the shop on my job me and another fella tried to straighten a fork off a 15,000lb capacity fork lift with a hydraulic press designed to split concrete block (I work at a concrete block plant btw). Needless to say said press started leaking hydraulic fluid afterwards. I mean going in we though it was a good idea. It did kinda sorta straighten the fork a little bit...

    When my first SHO had 33 K miles the water pump went. Decided at the time to switch to G-05 coolant, and underdrive WP, alternator and power steering pump pullies. That replacement pump (might have been Motorcraft) was still in top working condition no leaks when the car got scrapped at 145 K miles (rust), despite bouncing off the rev limiter at countless autocrosses and several open track events.

    Check local rental places most used to rent electric impact wrenches.

    Their battery impacts are actually rated for higher torque than the plug-in model. And AvE on YT was stunned at the amount of torque the Earthquake XT put out, he was tightening bolts for his test with a high pressure hydraulic unit up into the 600 lb-ft range IIRC, and the XT just undid them easy-peasy.
