I wished I had made this purchase years ago, I already had the 1/2 inch impact wrench but I can use this one in places that the other wrench is just to big to fit in. I just replaced the shocks on the front of my truck and if you have ever done that you know what a pain it is the get the top nut of the shock. it was a breeze using this impact wrench. Would definately recommnd to all my friends and family. The price was excellent as I was lucky enogh to catch it on sale.
I was disappointed in this tool I took it out of the box put a socket on it and when I pulled the trigger I could hold the socket with my hand
I have had great luck with craftsman tools. but this item I have to return for replacement after only three uses. Anvil end where socket retainer sits is broken off. Pistol grip is loose and keeps sliding down over hose connection and sometimes when pulling trigger it just hisses, have to reverse direction to get it to work.
Purchased this as an everyday workhorse. I was pleasantly surprised when I first hooked it up and pulled the trigger. For a low end cheap gun, it seems to have the power of a cheap 1/2" impact and the durability to go with it! Well worth its' asking price. Might just surprise you.
I thought I would try this impact wrench out and have been very pleased with the results. The quiet operation will save on my ear drums while the more than adequate torque gets the job done. Would buy again without any doubt.
