I've had this for about 5 years now. At the time, I was looking for a good, reasonably affordable impact wrench and saw this at Sears. I bought it to take off some 36 mm axle spindle nuts of a Honda Accord. They came right off! The compressor I used was a Sears 25 gallon Craftsman Professional with a 3/8" - 50 ft. black rubber hose. I was going through the manuals and instructions for my tools and found the one for this impact wrench and it stated if the hose was going to be longer than 8 feet, then to go with a 1/2" hose. This would be something to keep in mind when purchasing this to compensate for pressure loss from long hoses. I had been using this wrench just fine for years. Great impact and affordable. It is also lightweight in comparison to a lot of other 1/2" impact wrenches. If you want to go with more torque, then I would get the IR 2135TIMax. It has 200 ft. lbs more torque than this one. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with this Craftsman 1/2" composite impact wrench.
Im a hydraulic tech and used the gun m thru f oiled it everyday. I went thru 3 in less then a year always the same problem broken vanes. The vanes in the gun are plastic and the rotor metal.
Decent value, but I haven't used it yet to see how well it is going to work.
gets the job done
Gun fell a part in less than a year and there is no exchange past 30 days
I have thousands of dollars invested in chraftsman hand tools. have been since I was a kid. But I have no luck with air tools by chraftsman. I bought this tool on sale on 4 apr 2018. by Oct it went bad. Took it back and replaced it. That one went bad in Mar 2019. They made it clear my warranty would expire in Apr 2019 and gave me another one. Guess what? That one went bad in June 2019, no warranty. I have since switched to Mac and Matco tools for power tools. Its your call. Oh, And I have a 3/8 dr air ratchet also went bad. But I got aboiut 3 years out of it.
