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.
it functions new as advertised; as time ans use goes on we shall see; it is that way with all tools.
works well with my 255 psi aircompressor
It's Craftsman, the name speaks for itself........
Very good impact wrench 1/2. has a lot of power and its served to all my trucks
