Bad Performance (See One-Star Reviews) Solved?

I read ALL the negative reviews and some of the positive ones. Even though the negatives "outweighed" the positives, I decided to take a chance. I reasoned this way... I already own two (2) impact wrenches -- one "cheap import," and a nice Ingersoll Rand. Unfortunately, they have taken up residence with my offspring -- and I'd really like them back. Enter the Sears offering. Despite the negative reviews, I figured they'd be new enough, and red enough, and pretty enough, that I could talk the boys into a "trade" and, with luck, get the good wrenches well hidden before they discovered my ruse. Best case, they might even work -- according to the reviews, about 38% (give or take) actually function properly... So, I bought two (2) wrenches for Christmas presents. One (1) of them worked quite well; one (1) could not have "impacted" its way out of wet paper bag! Fortunately, having the ability to compare a working wrench with a non-working wrench, I instantly spotted the problem! Hang on and pay careful attention here, there are some twists and turns on this ride! On the back of the wrenches is a selector lever. This lever is made out of plastic and it operates the forward/reverse function. Here's where it gets "Tricky": this is not just a simple "Y" valve; it is a "regulator," too! Moving it in the forward direction, one can feel a number of "detents" corresponding to various power settings. The catch is, the highest setting has no "detent"; you simply have to move the valve all the way to the end of its travel. Comparing the wrenches, I noticed the selector levers were loose! The lever on the "weak" wrench was so loose I could pull it off of the valve quite easily! It would travel through no more than three (3) detents and never reach the full power setting. Further examination disclosed an access hole on the bottom of the "well" where the lever couples up to the selector valve / regulator. When in the neutral position, this hole lines up with a set screw that is supposed to hold the lever in place. Snugging up the "good" wrench, I got nearly two (2) turns out of the set screw; the screw on the weak wrench yielded nearly three (3) turns! Once the levers were properly tightened, the wrenches went to working; even the function of the "good" wrench improved! The thing is, if I had purchased only the weak wrench, I might not have discovered the problem! When the instruction manual says that running the wrench for more than ten (10) seconds (without the socket turning) may damage it, there is no way this is the "Heavy Duty" tool touted in the sales literature! On the other hand, on a half (1/2) price sale, it's not a bad deal -- particularly if, as in my case, you can use it to ransom an Ingersoll Rand. Regardless, if you decide to buy one (1) and it does not work, make sure the selector lever is tight before you give up on it. Of course, this comment reflects only my personal experience; your mileage may vary. -101-

not what i expected.

I bought it because of it's rating 400 ft-lb. I was able to remove small bolt. then i tried to remove my brake caliper bolts...no go. no power. I removed these bolts 2 years with hand.. I am very disappointed... junk.. what waste of money..

This impact wrench is only useful as a paper weight. Spend the money on a different one, just not this one.

Disappointed in CRAFTSMAN

|

There is no way in the world that this impact tool is rated at 400 Ft. Lbs. I torque my wheel's lug nuts to 100 Ft. Lbs. and this CANNOT loosen them...yet when I put a wrench on the lug nuts, I have no difficulty in loosening them. This proves to me this gun is not up to it's so-called 400 Ft. Lbs. Sears should be ashamed for misleading buyers into thinking they are getting something they are not. I plan on returning it for refund, but only if THEY pay the shipping cost, due to their faulty tool.

Quality at affordable price

|

This impact wrench has the feel and punch of more expensive models. Perfect for the DIY mechanic with plenty of torque for the tough lug nuts or stubborn bolts.

I bought this on sale to replace my Companion set that came with my Craftsman compressor. This one has a tad bit more force. Love it!!!

For the price, very usefull

|

It took off the lugs to our vehicles with ease. The Rev/FWD selector feels a little cheap but guess what, it only cost $24.99. It isn't an IR $390 impact wrench but it does perform like a $125 wrench.

No Power at All

|

This gun couldn't even take off a lugnut that was torqued at 118flb.  Supposedly this airgun had 400flp. This was a waste of money and time .

1/2" impact wrench

|

After reading all of the reviews for this item (including the ones that complained about this wrench not being able to break lug nuts), I decided to take the plunge and buy this. The main use for this gun will be for removing tires.

Once I got home I hooked it up and immediately tried to break loose a lug nut. The wrench couldn't do it. I double checked everything and the wrench still would not break the nut loose. Then I noticed I had a very tiny leak at the connector on my hose. I had my ear up to it and barely (I mean barely) heard an air leak. I tightened the connection up and tried the wrench again. The lug nut flew right off. I was ecstatic.

If you have the proper set up with no leaks, this wrench will be great for the home DYI'er.

lack power

|

The impact does not enough power to even loosen lug bolt, it would be good household use. But for the price not a bad deal. Over all not bad.

Cant Complain

|

For the price point it is the perfect impact driver if you use it from time to time and not everyday but it is not designed to be used that much, but to provide novice users like myself and opportunity to afford a good impact tool. Craftsman is great at having the right grade for the right Person so that you are not sitting on a $200 tool that you don't use often. now with a $40 tool it's much easer to justify the purchase. Again great tool I would recommend it if you are not planning to user it daily or p[professionally.

Had to return it

|

I bought this to help loosen some bolts holding the blades on my tractor mower deck. The wrench was unable to loosen any of the bolts. I have a lot of Craftsman tools, and have never had one that simply did not do what it is advertised to until this purchase. If you need an air impact wrench, read other reviews and find one that does not have the many negative reviews that this tool does.
