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.

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).

My first air-tool and hoping for a 'good' experience!


Just bought it to use with a new compressor and hoping for good luck - inexpensive and it says Craftsman - hoping they vetted it and it works!

I purchased this on sale. I thought I was going a good deal based on the specs.  Not so much.  The first one broke one lug nut before locking up.  The second one turned but that's about it.  Out of the box with only oiling it, I could easily stall out the gun by holding the socket with little pressure.  The people at sears were surprised that I returned 2 of these and said they would have to test them because I must be doing something wrong.  Craftsman tools quality has been going downhill for the last several years, I don't think I'll be returning to sears.

Good thing that I only paid $10 for this PoS, since it can't remove an kind of nuts. 400 ft-lbs of torque? Maybe they meant 400 in-lb.
