Bought this on sale on Black Friday. It was the only Craftsman one available at our local Kmart. Thought this was a good deal for half the regular price. It works ok, but is not as strong as need for some jobs.

Better then expected


This is an excellent, lightweight impact wrench, especially considering the price. HOWEVER you do need a *lot* of air, and I suspect most home air compressors (And hence the negative reviews) are due to ignoring this simple fact. For instance, our small pancake compressor at 90 PSI is going to put out nowhere near the amount of CFM you need to properly run a wrench, but the same compressor cranked up to 150 will run it perfectly for short bursts.


You really do need to oil these properly. There is a small nut on the front removable with a hex wrench, once this is off squirt a decent amount of oil in, and with the nut REMOVED run the tool, re-oiling each time until the oil coming out is no longer dirty. Once you do this, just replace the nut and oil a small amount through the air coupling each time you use the tool. I prefer Marvel Mystery Oil for my tools, but any air tool oil will work fine. Do this each time, and it's not unknown to get 10-20 years out of an air tool.

Quality for the price


For the price it works good for small projects. I wouldn't recommend it for lugnuts as you would need something with a little more power

Quality matches the price.


I didn't expect much from it when I bought it, but with this price you can't go wrong. I mostly use it on small things only.

Not much power, but a reasonable price.


I bought this a couple months ago to do some auto work. Was a little disappointed that the lug nuts I tightened with a co-worker's 1/2 inch impact (Ingersoll-Rand) wouldn't budge with this one. You get what you pay for, but since I got it for 1/2 price, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. It does a fine job, and quiet, just don't expect it to keep up with professional quality impact guns.

I bought this gun and it worked alright for bust lug nuts off small cars but it had severe trouble trying to bust loose lug nuts on trucks. I returned it and bought the upgraded version and since have had no problems.

Perfect for those who like small projects and definitely a great gift for birthdays or Christmas.


Bought this impact to help with small projects at the house and at the shop, all around great tool easy to use light weight with great power for small project uses. Definitely a great buy will be looking forward to buying a bigger one for my bigger projects.
