value for power

February 11, 2013
By quadman

"In the fall of 2012 I needed to change wheels on a combine that I knew were torqued to over 1200 ft.lbs.
My old big 1" drive simply would not budge the bolts,so the search was on to find a stronger impact.
When I found this one on sale at an incredable low price I figured that it couldn't be any good , but I'll give it a try. To my surprise it did the job.
But (there is always a but right) this tool is heavy and there is a problem that I consider to be a safety issue.
The trigger to operate it is on the outside of the handle and is very very easy to bump with the top of your hand while holding and positioning the tool causeing it to run unexpectedly. for that reason I only gave it 3 stars

saving money

from Dayton Oh.
"This impact is a real money saver.
We used to buy the big guns from the other big name makers and they would only last 6 months to one year before they needed rebuit and the cost was about the same price as this new gun and would not be as good as it was when new .
This gun cost less then the rebuilt cost of our old guns and they would not have the power we needed to remove lug nuts after being rebuilt
This gun has the power

Excellent Quality

November 17, 2008
By boogie2510
from Georgia
"I bought this gun in a pinch and found it to be quite powerful (actually stronger than most), well made, and used the same amount or less air than the leading brands. I actually used it once by tapping directly into the truck air tank and sped the engine up to make enough air - it had plenty of power to remove lug nuts and worked just like I was plugged into a stationary compressor. I thought I was buying a cheap gun to tie me over until I could afford a good one, but this thing is a really good gun - quite impressed. Looks like it will be quite a while before it needs replacing."
