I like Aldi, but have had bad luck with their electronics. If you do get it, keep a wheel brace also just in case.
Do you already have a family of 18v tools?
It looks a helluva lot like the same battery as my Makita though. Wonder if they're a knock off

I will be keeping a bracker bar also ...
And yes I do own some 18vlt Makita tools 5&6 amp battery s however the impact Wrench is very expensive well the one I like $459 with 1000Nm skin only an another $160 for the battery , the Aldi is $79 +$39 charger and battery comes in around $120 but it has 3 torque setting: 350, 280 and 215Nm bargain.
ps I did get a chance to try the drill very impress with the results.

I reckon go for it then.
Yes I saw that makita impact for $459. Quite the unit. Although more powerful than just about any bolt on the patrol I can think of though?

I had a ryobi impact I bought used so I could jump in on my dads charger and 2 batteries he got for his drill. Ended up selling it recently as I wasn’t overly impressed enough with any other of their power tools to commit to being a Ryobi18v guy, so sold that skin for what I paid. Had not invested anything else ryobi so no big deal.

did a bunch of research and decided to go for makita. My corded hammer drill from 12 years ago is going strong.

this impact wrench kit is a bloody bargain. Works out $50 more than skin only for a charger, 5a battery, and a hard case with space for everything + space for another drill skin.

1000Nm measured how? A lot of them these days use the BS marketing term "nut busting torque", which is how much torque would theoretically be delivered under physically impossible conditions.

I’m no expert, but I have a that makita driver - a while back I tightened up a bullbar-to-chassis bolt with it till it stopped rotating (just hammering). I then got a torque wrench and set it to 100 Nm (testing my memory) and was able to tighten the bolt some more before the wrench clicked.
I will say I have a pretty old 3Ah battery, but I remember being pretty disappointed with my new impact wrench!
I still love it, and am hoping one day when I get a new 5 or 6 Ah battery, the wrench will redeem itself!

On the second of three settings, I can grip and hold the deep impact socket without it turning. Maybe the battery needs replacing sooner rather than later.....
