Good design but poor quality control

I bought this tool with the tire maintenance kit for $49.99. The price is much cheaper than my Craftsman HD impact wrench and my CP impact wrench. Just don't know whether this wrench is powerful enough to handle wheel nuts or not. I had to overhaul this wrench with the trigger valve and spring, and added oil into the hammer chamber. There was no oil inside the hammer chamber when I took out the oiling screw. I also had to tighten the screw at the forward/reverse valve at the neutral position. Once I fixed these problems, the impact wrench works fine. What is the hack, I wait for Christmas when the price drop back down to $24.95 to get one more. If I can overhaul and fix the problem, it is a good tool for occasional use.

Not 400 ft-lbs, regulator/reverse valve need some work

I purchased two of these impact wrenches in April of 2014 with the intent of using one as an everyday tool and one as loaner to spare my NitroCat from daily use and loaner abuse. Neither of the Craftsman impacts had any power, bolts tightened to 200 ft-lbs were the max they could remove and that was a struggle, even with high flow (74-cfm) couplers/plugs and 125 psi pushing them. With standard couplers/plugs 125-135 ft-lbs was the best it could do, they're the weakest 1/2" impacts I've owned. After taking one apart to check for manufacture errors, damage, missing parts, clogged ports etc., I discovered the housing and regulator are actually the two major problems. The housing is very restrictive in terms of air-flow through the wrench and the regulator and housing suffer from improperly placed ports and an o-ring that's missing from the regulator design altogether. This was just a poorly designed impact inside. The other, more expensive Craftsman 1/2" models seem to be working much better.

not a great gun

|

This gun is light and feels good in your hands. And that's about the only thing it has going for it. Definitely an under powered impact wrench. I was unable to break loose lug nuts on cars at my job. Skip this impact wrench.

Gun needs a LOT Of tweaks to work - not worth it

|

In short, this gun "could" be a good gun however it starves for air. The trigger mechanism doesn't open the valve up enough - I played with it for days - I'm an Mech Engineer with a PhD and real hands-on experience - I know how to design and build tools - the valving mechanism on this just starves it for air. As a test, take out the air inlet valve mechanism by
1- remove the inlet port (don't drop the exhaust silencing balls)
2 - pull out the spring and valve

Now put the inlet port back in - hook up to your compressor. I found it has considerably more torque now. That's the easy part.

I also found that the air into the air motor is restricted by poorly drilled holes. There are slots in the throttle control that don't get air because of misalignment of the air inlet hole and the throttle control body (control switch on back).

DOES NOT REMOVE LUGS TORQUED TO 105ft-lb

|

Some people here mentioned that you get what you pay for, and that it does the job...NOT TRUE!

If an impact wrench can't remove simple lug nuts, that were recently torqued to 105ftlb, then it isn't sufficient for minimalists jobs!

excellent product. great value, couldn't be any happier with the purchase ty

|

My wife got this for me for christmas I was very happy with the durability and power it had. I have since bought many gadgets and things to go with it and I couldn't be happier with the value. I have since been looking to purchase more air tools to add to my set. Overall I and my wife were happy with the overall purchase and purchases since this puchase we were new to the shop your way rewards program. We have gotten many deals since we started in October of last year. In four months we have already received and used over $50 in just rewards. We have to admit were big fans! Thanks for your time. All have a great day. .

it looks real nice!

i understand that you get what you pay for, but not craftsman tools. its way underpowered. i give it to the shop idiots to use so they wont break anything with the good (old) impact. thats pretty bad for a new gun.

Works well for me changing tires and things around the house. You sure can't beat the price for a craftsman tool

Buy it if you are removing bolts from a bed frame or something with small bolts. Not worth price.

|

400 ft lbs of torque my ass! I have the Craftsman Pro 60 gal compressor and this gun wouldn't budge lug nuts torqued to 100 ft lbs. I had to remove lugs by hand. I'm very irritated and it is the final straw. I have spent over 2,000 on craftsman gear and merchandise in the last 3 months. It seems that the quality is not getting better with more money. It's getting worse. I mean really bad crap including my new 60 gal compressor.
