    northern sells them very cheap.... IR has warranty centers all over and carries a 1 year warranty, we used to send them to a place in ohio, but they were morons, 6 weeks out for repair and they came back in a box in pieces... usually there is someone in your town or near you that is a warranty center for them..

    have a tool guy that comes to your work? They can usually repair or warranty your stuff. I couldn't find a local warranty shop for my 2135qti, but my Matco guy took care of the problem for me. I know the matco 3/8" impact carries a 2 year warranty. Not sure about their other air tools. Their 3/8" is the same thing as the 2115ti. I have the Mac version of it(impulse buy) and LOVE IT. The thing is my right hand at work. I used to wonder why I would need a 3/8" gun, now I wonder what I would ever do without it.

    Sorry for the hijack, haha.

    skip the short barrell air hammer, and go for a long barrell.

    LOL i just tried to google for specs on my Matco RL910A, and came up with 3 results, 2 of which were CK5 posts made by me. no specs though. i'll have to dig for the paperwork. that thing is an absolute beast though. :deal:

    www.maxtool.com has good prices. Each IR tool comes with a booklet telling you where to take your tool for repair if something happens. (for the IR certifed places, at least)

    Matco, Mac and Cornwell (and even blue point) have IR tools that are re-badged and have a longer warranty....but you do pay for it.

    They really are amazingly easy to fix. Never had one break on me, but my friend's have. You can have a Titanium apart in about 2 minutes.

    The IR air hammer is alright...but if you're working on super heavy stuff, it won't cut it. I have the Snap-on top dog PH3050. That thing will crack anything loose and it doesn't feel any harder on your hand than using an impact. Of course, it's about 3 times as much $$$ as the IR.

    the ph3050 has about 40% more power and 30% LESS vibration than any of the ir, bluepoint, mac/matco/cornhole units, it is worth its weight in gold if you use one a lot...... as a tech, when i first started i had a campbell hausfield i paid 25 bucks at walmart for, i bought it cuz it had a 2 year warranty and was cheap, it still works great, the bits were garbage but the gun worked well... just not a lot of power
