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 .
I would buy this tool again.. Not for $200 but get it on sale and combine with points well worth the buy. Works great
strong, easy use
I've owned this gun for over a year now and it's incredible. I bought the smaller craftsman half inch impact before this and it couldn't stand up to daily use, but this one doesn't have that problem. I use it for lug nuts mostly, but I've used it in other places, too. It's lightweight and powerful, and deceptively quiet. It still makes noise, but not nearly the same levels as other top end impacts. If you work in a shop, or just need a quality impact for regular use, I wholly recommend this one. It lasts, and it's around 1/4 of the price of a tool truck.
