I purchased this for use as a professional auto mechanic and have used it several times over the week. The thing work good and does what you expect it to. Hits hard and fast and knocks the the heck out of whatever you point it at. The 1 little thing is the air inlet. If you look real close you will see that it is just a threaded metal sleeve. The metal sleeve spins in the handle so the air line won't tangle but since there is no nut, you can't hold it still to tighten the quick connect. It took me several tries and an impact wrench to get the quick connect tight enough to not leak air. After getting past that, it is a good, hard working tool.
After purchasing thishooking it up, the internal valve would not cycle unless you shook the tool. I exchanged ti for another one, and the second unit worked better than the first, but the valves still bind up causing air to blow air through without actuating the hammer.
I had high hope for this tool, since it fits nicely in the hand-not too big or too small,and it is better balanced than some of the more expensive composite or aluminum models. Unfortunatel, the composite valvebody has much left to be desired in its construction. If that is redone, this would be a fine tool for almost anyone to have.
Nice quality product from Craftsman . Made in China , but it surprised me with more power than expected by far . 3700 BPM is the corrected than the advertised mention . Smooth trigger , with nice control . Would definitely purchase again.
Works great for light duty jobs around the house and great price
All seems good, although I didn't need to use it yet. Time will tell if it holds up. But it is anything like all the other craftsman stuff I have it will work as good or better than expected.
