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..

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.

1/2 impact

Please note for the average mech. this item will work for if you break the bolts loose. I torque all bolts on my vehicle and I could not get a 85 foot pound torque wheel off the car with out breaking free first. I have a 400 psi compressor and only 50ft hose. My last impact was from IR and im going to get same item.Worked everytime.

This impact is a piece of junk

What is the purpose of an impact? To loosen tight bolts, right?
This thing cant. I can do it myself with a 3/8" drive ratchet, but this impact cant. Long story short, it is completely worthless.

Great tool

This a great tool. 500lbs pounds of torque is good enough to get any lugs nuts off. Lightweight and easy to use with great ergonomics. Not a professional wrench but will do for the every now and then user.

For the price, not bad...

With a sale price, SYWR coupons, and surprise points, I paid $17 for this gun. If you keep that in mind, this is a pretty good bargain. I went over the gun and tightened the screw mentioned in another review prior to putting the gun into service. This gun is being fed by just a small 3 gallon craftsman air compressor, not exactly ideal for an impact, so keep that in mind as well. The gun will bust loose lug nuts, mower blade spindles, and old rusted lugs on my boat just fine. I would guess it can bust loose around 150 ft/lbs. I checked all the fasteners that I tightened with a torque wrench, and they were all around 130 ft/lbs. Not even close to what the gun advertises, but hey, it was $17. I'll keep it around until I can afford something better, but for now, I'm pleased. I would like to try the gun with a bigger 60 gallon compressor, as that's what it needs to operate properly. My little 3 gallon would run the gun for maybe 7 seconds and then turn on to try to keep up. This will work for loosening a single nut or two, but I won't be doing 5 lug nuts in a row with this setup without waiting for my tank to refill.
Pros: good small impact for the price, looks sharp, good fit and finish
Cons: Eats a ton of air compared to other impacts, not even close to torque rating of 400 ft/lbs

A little weak...

After points and on sale... I got this for a deal nobody would pass. I heard bad reviews on this so I gave it a few tries this weekend. I was able to bump all 3 blades off my tractor with ease. I normally use a 3 foot breaker bar. I also test fired it on 1 lug nut on a tire that has not been removed for 10 years. Took two shots before it wisked it off. Guess I got lucky with this one.

Impact wrench for basic use

Needed a torque up to 210 LB, gun rated at 400 LB. Was not able to loosen or tighten. Tried larger capacity compressor and larger supply hose.

Useless. Skip this wrench.

This hunk of garbage couldn't budge the lug nuts on my car. Not even worth the cheap price. Skip this wrench and get model #19984 instead. Yes, #19984 costs more, but it uses less air and has a higher rating. It'll actually get your lug nuts off.

Great Wrench

For the price this is a great impact wrench. It has a very nice feel and works quite well. I use it for minor jobs like taking the tires off of my car for cleaning, and it's worked great thus far.

JUNK

I bought this last year on sale for half price. I used it a few times and it doesn't work. I brought it back to sears a few times getting a new one everytime. it wouldn't take the lug nutz off my atv which are not torqued as mush as a motor vehicle..i though my compressor wasn't big enough (20 gal.) so I used my friends 33 gallon compressor and the same thing. so than I went to try it on my dads 60 gallon Ingersoll rand compressor and that didn't work either. I ended up giving it to a friend because they wouldn't give me my money back...he sold it at a swap meet. the next weekend I went out and bought a Ingersoll rand 231C 1/2-Inch Super-Duty Air Impact Wrench. and it is awesome. I took the lug nuts off my atv in seconds. I changed a flat tire on my gmc dually in the drive way like a pit crew........DONT BUY THIS GUN..

needed for my truck

I bought this to use with my air compressor. It works like a charm. I even let my sons (11 and 13) use it. They like acting out the pit crews on NASCAR racing.

Decent gun for the money.

I bought this item on sale for $39.99 I have been withholding my review for about 5 months. For the first 3 of those months I was with everybody else on the negative side, it wasn't worth it. The problem wasn't the gun it was the compressor. This gun uses 5.2 SCFM at 90 psi my 21 gallon compressor only puts out about 5 SCFM @ 90 psi I figured it was close enough. NOPE I recently upgraded my compressor to a 60 gallon 11.4 SCFM @ 90 PSI now this gun will remove lug nuts torqued to 180 foot lbs. It removed an outboard flywheel nut without blinking. Its a decent gun but you need a big compressor to run it adequetly

Can't believe Sears even sells it.

I received this as a birthday present several months ago. Tried using it on my lug nuts for my truck which is the primary reason for me getting it. It wouldn't even budge them. I was able to get them off by hand with the vehicles own lug wrench. They weren't even close to being that tight. I have the correct size air hose and more than ample compressor so its the junk Craftsman is putting their name on now. What happened to the Craftsmen name and American quality?

Works great

Used once. Worked as any other Impact Wrench. I had one from ********** , the Husky brand. Seem to work the same. Enough torque for what I use it for. Looks like its built solid.
