I carry 3/4" drive tools which include a 30" reversible ratchet, sliding tee-handle, 6" extension and 7/8" deep well impact socket---they'll soon be transferred to another van while the Milwaukee stays in the main van.

I don't need or use a cheater bar on the 3/4" drive tools as they're really not needed. I've never been comfortable or all that trusting with 1/2" drive hand tools for tire work. Even though I have some of the best USA tools available investing in the 3/4" drive stuff was a sound move I believe. I don't want a tool to fail if I'm over-extending its true capacity or rating.

Cordless impact wise though its a tough call as the 3/8" drive will do the job but just not as easily as the 1/2" version. Having used both during practice I'm much more comfortable the big brother is the best choice.

We get that----and no it doesn't shrink in any aspect. There was a time members here thought I was a stealth POR-15 representative because I was so impressed and touted its use frequently. There's not been a lot of opportunities lately to recommend but its still in my back pocket just in case.
