Just keep it charged up, but remember to disconnect the battery while not in use ,and store the two in your handy tool box on your truck, or the trunk of your car, (and a set of impact sockets) there a life savor and the price is right, It's a win, win tool to appreciate!.
This is the second impact in under a year the battery will not hold a charge, the first battery took forever to replace now the second battery is the same as the first, went to store and had no help with replacing it
I had to either purchase a Wrench Kit, or rent one for removal of tires installed by mechanics in love with using there own torc wrench. Never fails, anyway I had to get at both struts on my Sebring and this Craftsman did the trick. Just be beware of metric bolts on Chrysler cars made in Canada, surprise guess what I had to purchase. Anyway make sure that you check out Sears first for Craftsman products, many of the local brand Hardware stores will also sell Craftsman tools. But at higher prices, I ended up getting this kit for just sixty one dollars including shipping free.
Renting a wrench would have been forty-nine dollars per four hours, and it took me a whole day to do these struts do to being metric, and one side being very rusted on. However Liquid wrench did the trick along with this wrench kit, just make sure you charge up the battery first. Not bad for the price, very pleased...I am a DYI and not a mechanic. God Bless.
Awesome tool to keep handy around the garage.
You no longer need to have a big air compressor, hoses, and an expensive air impact wrench. The Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Cordless 1/2" Wrench Kit replaces all that with a tool that uses the same batteries as your other Craftsman C3 tools. I used it to change the tires on my F350. These are big 8-lug wheels. To break loose the lug-nuts you need a well-charged battery, but this Impact Wrench does the job. My battery ran down enough after changing 2 1/2 tires that it could no longer break loose the lug-nuts so I needed to change batteries to do the last 1 1/2 tires. I don't believe this is a problem since I have plenty of these batteries from my other tools. Don't forget that you need impact-rated sockets to use this tool safely.
Remember, too, that you can easily carry this tool with you in your car and you can use it for other jobs like driving big wood screws when building a deck.
Excellent impact wrench! Help removed stubborn blade nut on my Craftsman 33" mower! Used it a few times already and it's been great!
The impact gun has enough power to take off the lug nut
Powerful tool that gets the job done and easy to handle.
The 1/2 impact wrench does a great job for its portability.
This tool is very goo one because it meets my expectations
Got this for a project, it worked perfectly. made short work of a brake job. It has enough power to remove tires and those stubborn bolts. For the money its the best deal going right now
I purchased this tool specifically to do my own tire rotations, oil changes etc. I had great expectations and have been let down. This tool only PROPERLY functions under temperatures of 80 degrees Fahrenheits and above. Here in NY we don't have a lot of that nice warm weather. I tried doing this rotation today and the tool only removed 1 tire, I charged it for about 2 hours before using it the manual says it only needs 1 hour, but after one hour the green light signaling charge is still blinking and not solid. I'm not sure if it's the charger itself or the battery or both, or the tool itself. Not sure, but I need a tool to work under any circumstances not just when it's summer (which is like 2 months here in NY).
we bought two of these, one for my husband and one for our son. they both love craftsman tools and are always happy with thier purchases.
I bough this mainly based on the craftsman name which stands for quality and durability. I try to always buy tools with the Craftsmanname because I know I'm getting the best quality and if something accidentally slipped through their inspection, I know they'll stand behind it and fix it or replace it.
I've been looking for a cordless impact wrench to change a tire if I need to.
