"I got this impact driver to remove the stake nut on my land rover which had refused to move even with a 3 foot pipe on the socket. Good buy with the impact sockets included with the driver. As for the reliability I cannot comment yet as I have only used it once.(I have had to put a star in reliability to allow me to post )"
"Brought this gun to remove stubborn nuts on old motorcycle engine. Did the jobs with ease. Have used far more expensive ones in the past. This one is more than a match. Bonus that it comes with a set of sockets. Amazing value."
"Bought specifically to remove 230NM crank pulley bolt, straight off no messing in 5 seconds flat, didn't even need to make a flywheel locking tool - put car in gear, wedged front hub, that was enough.
Re-tightening torque when checked with torque bar read over 230NM, so it tightens plenty too.
I'd advise connecting straight to compressor tank, remove all your dryers, regulators etc so it gets a full 150psi, if your compressor maxes out at 8 bar you will not be able to unleash the power of this wrench. Also ensure the 4-position control on the wrench is set to maximum
Inexplicably the product description fails to mention you also get a carry case, oil reservoir, impact sockets 9, 11, 13, 17, 19, 22, 24, 27mm and short extn bar. i also needed 74700 male 0.25in BSP connectors.
The leaking air mentioned above; yes it does come past the direction reversal pin as well as from the proper exhaust outlet but this is simply the exhausted gas exiting the front of the drill once it has done its job driving the vane motor.
Only slight downside the finger trigger is plastic not metal, so a careless drop onto a concrete floor might break it.
Highly recommended but your compressor needs to be up to the job otherwise i can only imagine it being useful for spinning wheel nuts etc."
"good quality and works well. I have a big compressor so no problems with air supply. The sockets are VERY hard to fit or remove. I resorted to filing the square in the sockets, but they are still tight. Normal sockets go on easy. Overall worth while buying."
"Better value than I thought! Description does not include the fact that it comes in a case with a set of sockets and extension. Held up fixing my car, quick and easy order on line and ready to collect when I walked in. Wrench does what it says on the tin,"
"well made item generally except mine had a loose fitting trigger pushrod which allowed excessive air loss reducing the amount air actually going through the vane motor reducing performance/ increasing air consumpsion"
"After reading good reviews I thought it would be good to buy to join with a new compressor, not a little 'wolf', a proper workshop compressor. This tool wasn't able to undo wheel nuts, nuts I could undo with a socket with little effort. For a wrench that was bought to undo stuck nuts and bolts, pulling skin of custard comes to mind. Waste of money."
"On the plus side the impact gun was cheep... It needs a lot of pressure to get it to work properly. This gun is 1/2 drive and does offer quick removal after you loosen the bolt/ nut. My advice is to save your money and buy either the Ingersol Rand or snap-on impact as they are the ones to use on tight bolts."
