1/2" Impacts

Still no real confirmation either way but everything I've read there doesn't seem to be a 1/2" compact brushless impact wrench.  I agree with Bremon, fuel is where it's at with impact wrenches currently but competition never hurts and I'm invested in both brands so I could jump back over pretty easily.

Well, i'll tell you one thing with my Fuel mid torque..... I'm glad I got it and i'm glad I waited for one to come out. I knew I would need more than a compact impact could give me.... but wasn't about the pay for and have the boat anchor of a high torque when i totally don't need it,... ok i'm embellishing the boat anchor analogy lol... But if this one can keep up with the red version, those that are on  they yellow platform rejoice!!

Nose cone is an interesting design looks like someone kit it with a sledge a few times to compact it down lol but everyone's a critic right? Just glad the yellow guys finally have some decent impact wenches

It does look kind of strange but actually if you look at a parts breakdown of a compact impact the nose cone has a similar shape if you take off the light ring.

It's painful to watch but it's the only video I can find on youtube and gives a little more info on the mid torque.  I would have thought they would have learned their lesson with the dcf887 that the precision mode isn't good for anything and I think it'll be the pretty pointless on this mid torque.

Maybe the precision mode on the mid range impact wrench has been fine tuned to work better.

Yea I probably shouldn't be so critical of it before it's even out I just know the auto stop thing on my milwaukee compact is just a wasted space on the mode selector. But I also see the fuel gen 2 high torque has the same feature in reverse where it slows down after impacting but reviews I've seen on it say it's too slow and not practical.
