I purchased this product, and I'll have to add that it has a lot of power. At first, I was skeptic about it because I was always going for the top name brands like Mac and Snap-on. I work in a body shop, and very often I have to remove the tires from a vehicle to repair wheel-well openings on the quarter panels and fenders. Before, I was using the MG725 Snap-on impact wrench to remove tires. I had it for over a year, until it started giving me problems, since I didn't buy it new, but used for $200.00 dollars. I wasn't going to pay close to $600.00 dollars for a new one, which I think is absurd. Instead, I came across the Craftsman Professional 1/2 impact wrench. I read the aspects on it, and as soon as I saw that it was equipped with 710 lbs of Torque, I had to get it. I tried it on a 2011 Dodge Ram Super Duty diesel truck, just for the heck of it. I was amazed that the impact wrench removed the lug nuts quickly with a 60 gallon air compressor.
Bad and I don't mean good !Mechanic since 86 . I love Sears, buy there all the time. And still will , but this gun has to be the worst I have ever had. First one felt weak so I returned it,and they gave me a new one. Another year has gone by and the gun is useless .Rated at 710 lbs ,8000 rpm, ,, it spins ,,, maybe 800 now !Never really seemed to have the advertized power ! VERY disappointed in this gun .
Great gun. Not too loud and its very fast. Has great power.
Bought as a gift for my husband who complains about his "weak tools" when rotating tires & other misc items. He loves this tool. Think my tires get rotated just as an excuse to use it now!
Great impact wrench. I use it every da at work and I have yet to have any problems with it. Used in a heavy duty equipment yard for CSX rail yard and it really holds up.
Bought this one after old IR died (after many years) .I had limited funds and got this one on sale and couldn't be happier. I like it MORE than my old IR, and more than co workers S O brand . I had it about 3 1/2 years now using it all day everyday, NO PROBLEMS. I do oil it everyday so I'm sure that helps but even if it were to die tomorrow I would have gotten my money's worth and then some. And yes I would buy another one.
usually would buy brand names but this one super seeded this machine is on steroids would buy again
This Impact is Great, has plenty of loosening torque and the thumb wheel adjuster is a must have in tight spots. If you gun back hits against anything and you don't have this thumb wheel you are in a bad spot (trust me...lol) but with this just flip the wheel and put bolt back in and get your gun out. Great gun and very comparable to tool truck guns but half the price!
best value for everyday use
