    I am looking to replace my tired impact wrench...it was a cheap one and has served well. There are so many on the markey its hard to tell whats good without trying them.

    Any Suggestions?

    I would rather not replace this yearly...

    It will set you back a chunk of change, but pretty much anything with the Ingersol-Rand logo on it will last many years (and have WAY more torque that the $39 Harbor Freight specials). /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    hmm, i have a bluepoint (snapons cheap brand), works great...i replaced that with a ingersoll rand 2131, the composite 1/2" drive, talk about balls!, and also have a 3/8 drive IR composite, great guns... but if you want a decent gun... for a decent price, check out home depot...i believe their husky brand is lifetime warrantied... and they're not too shabby either..

    I bought this after a few members here said it was good. I am impressed so far - only done lug nuts tho. It's numbers are equivalent to the IR if you believe the specs....

    Motor-Engine:
    Speed Range RPM 10000 rpm
    Torque Maximum 500 ft. lbs. forward, 625 ft. lbs. reverse

    Don't pay over $125. Seems to be the high-end price of these auctions.


    Dutch Auction (5 at a time), there are 4 auctions (20 wrenches) at the moment.
