Electric impact wrenches

Anyone have any recommendations? I really only need it for the occassional stuck sprocket nut or clutch basket. Or if I work on the truck

I don't want an air compressor and a pneumatic one. More money, maintainance, and trouble than I want to invest.

any thoughts?

Ive used a makita at the local dealer to uncrate scooters and bikes. For thet kind of work it is awesome and the battery lasts forever. Im not sure how much power it has to unstick the applications your looking for though.

Don't need cordless necessarily. There are some corded ones upwards of $500 that are rated at 450 foot pounds.

I'd like to spend half that but still get something decent

I've used the dewalt one that you can get at home depot. it's decent, but not mega powerful. the first couple times I used it, I was able to remove the nut from the CV axle on my civic, although it took a while to break loose. I've since moved on to air power.

Craftsman...I have an older one that is corded, but it works great. I don't think a cordless one can give you the torque I get with mine. I have had very good service from mine and it has worked well in some situations I didn't think it would.

Cordless Impact guns

I have several for work and home. They're good for working on bikes and cars. Like anything, you get what you pay for. The 1/2" drive guns would be ideal for track junkies.
I have a couple of NEW Dewalt DW059 series guns, never used, that I could let go for ~$200 obo each (paid $360 ea), if you're interested (I need an IPOD Touch!).
These guns are brand new not refurbished (Unscratched hard case, (2) new batteries, 1 hr charger each kit). LMK,

Al

Ive got a panasonic one and it works good, if you want to talk to the real experts go to Burlands House of Tools.

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.
