    Default Impact Wrench

    I am looking to invest (not a whole lot) in an impact wrench for an auto class.
    Here are the specs, is this a good buy?

    Ingersoll-Rand
    Torque range: 25-225 ft/lbs, Maximum torque: 375 ft/lbs. Average airflow: 4.0 CFM, Air Inlet: 1/4", Maximum pressure: 90 psi, Free speed: 9500 RPM, Minimum hose size: 3/8", 7-3/4" OAL, Retainer type ring, Maximum bolt capacity: 1/2", 1/2" Pistol grip, 1200 Blows per minute.
    $40.00

    FF II
    Hazmat Operations
    EMT-B
    ---------------------------------------------------

    The light at the end of the tunnel has been temporarly shut off due to the current work load. The Mangement

    When all else fails USE DUCT-TAPE!!!

    I think for an impact wench for your auto class, you should go with one of the old favorites like Pamela Anderson. Also, most of the tool calendars put out posters and calendars with some great looking wenches who are not famous.

    One word of caution though, some of the females in the class could get upset over your posting of wenches. Be very careful.

    What?

    Oh. WRENCH.

    Never mind.

    Well a Snap-on is always good!

    I have a couple of Campbell Hausfled tools, and compressor. Couldn't really go wrong with DeWalt stuff either, except that both DeWalt and Snap-on are a bit on the pricey side, whereas Campbell Hausfled is reasonably priced.

    You can't go wrong with an Ingersoll-Rand. I bought a used one when I first started as an auto tech back in '88, and it's still kicking *** today. Just keep it cleaned and oiled.

    Hey Mikey, that is a really good impact wrench. You can't go wrong with IR. you can run 110psi through it which is the psi setting of most shop compressors. The 90psi is IR's way of quality control. They will warranty the air tool if you operate it @ 90psi. I have been using mine at 110 since I bought it new in "86" and it has not failed me yet. As Noz stated if you keep it clean and oiled it will outlast you. good luck -sno
