20v impact laughs at it, the front sprocket nut and the wheel nut. Best $70 I ever spentI use an 18v Impact wrench. Makes light work of it. (kinda)
I fudged it a little, I already had the battery, but its the one aldi had recently. I figured itd survive occasional use, its actually pretty ballsy, undid 4wd axle nuts no worries.What brand of wrench Dave?
