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 go. no power. I removed these bolts 2 years with hand.. I am very disappointed... junk.. what waste of money..

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.

Do not waste your money on this


I have no idea where they get 400lbs from... I work at a Toyota dealership and this gun could not remove lug nuts from a prius.. how embarrassing.
Then, when I took the gun back to sears, the employee working told me that its an entry level gun, and wouldnt return it until I came back and really complained about it. Worst experience ive had at sears. A junk tool and horrible customer assistance

No torque with this impact


This impact wrench has no power. Knew this wasn't top of the line when I bought as I intended only occasional use. Every time I have used it, it has not been able to break loose anything. It claims to have way more power than it does. Changing brands for the replacement. I have always been a diehard Craftsman tool user, but the quality isn't what it used to be. Time for a change.

Not worth the money


I tried to use this gun to take out some 1/2" bolts that had been anti- seize treated and it wouldn't even budge them. I used my 3/8" kobalt and it took them out with ease. There's no way this gun is 400ft. lbs

No good


bought this gun to be used for pulling lug nuts off and other misc small things, didnt have much expectation for it at all, but first time i wanted to use it was to drive some 6in x 3/4 bolts through a pre drilled holes into wood and it would not even move the bolt with pressure at 150psi on a new compressor

Do no purchase


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.

Great for the price!!!


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.
