    Default tough bolts....

    ....are starting to do my head in.

    What do people think about cordless impact wrenches? Are they worth it? I don't have a lot of money, so I'd have to get this budget one from B&Q

    What are people's opinions?

    Same here, even though i have a 18v snap on one, the clarke one leaves the snap on one behind, I don't know what the 24v snap on ones are like, but for the money, I'd just buy the clarke one for on your drive.
