    I've seen ads for the 30 gallon compressor that comes with a free 1/2 impact, 3/8 ratchet and hose etc for about $299. Did yours come with tools or any hoses?

    I've been wanting one myself for a while.

    Sorry, probably lounge material.

    The impact tools that come with that are almost completely worthless... and the compressor is LOUD! Better than no airtools... but just not quality units by any means.

    I'd steer clear of this combo again.... I will be getting a replacement impact at some point, and if i have to kill too many more rivets the hammer will get replaced as well...

    Yeah, I bought the Craftsman 33 Gal. air compressor a couple months ago and it came with a tool kit. Talk about a crappy impact wrench. It would barely take my lug nuts off! Looks like you got yourself one of the good Craftsman impacts though because there's no way mine puts out near as much torque. Overall though I've been pretty satisfied with the compressor. People talk alot of smack about the oilless compressors (and they are a bit noisy), but the Craftsman is made by Devilbiss which is supposed to be a pretty good company.
