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).

Air tools


I purchased the impact wrench because my old one also a craftsman finally bit the dust after 25 yrs, and I think I will like the new one better as it is lighter and has the viable speed function

I needed a compressor and Sears had a package-deal going with this impact wrench and hose, etc.

This thing is a doorstop. With 100psi air it hasn't broken anything loose yet that I couldn't move with a 12" ratchet.

Good impact wrench


I bought one of these on sale awhile back and was worried at first after reading how some people said it didn't have a lot of power but so far I haven't had any problems with it when removing lug nuts and stuff.

Do Not Purchase this Item


The tool has no strength, the worst tool I have ever seen with a Craftsman Brand name.

You gotta love the power.


This drill can make holes like there is no to,arrow. I think I have driven about 700 screws with it and it is still very powerful. It does take a minute to shove something threw streak. Not sure if it is really intended for that. And the compressor tends to make a lot of noise but I don't hear so well any way.
