Bad Performance (See One-Star Reviews) Solved?
I read ALL the negative reviews and some of the positive ones. Even though the negatives "outweighed" the positives, I decided to take a chance. I reasoned this way... I already own two (2) impact wrenches -- one "cheap import," and a nice Ingersoll Rand. Unfortunately, they have taken up residence with my offspring -- and I'd really like them back. Enter the Sears offering. Despite the negative reviews, I figured they'd be new enough, and red enough, and pretty enough, that I could talk the boys into a "trade" and, with luck, get the good wrenches well hidden before they discovered my ruse. Best case, they might even work -- according to the reviews, about 38% (give or take) actually function properly... So, I bought two (2) wrenches for Christmas presents. One (1) of them worked quite well; one (1) could not have "impacted" its way out of wet paper bag! Fortunately, having the ability to compare a working wrench with a non-working wrench, I instantly spotted the problem! Hang on and pay careful attention here, there are some twists and turns on this ride! On the back of the wrenches is a selector lever. This lever is made out of plastic and it operates the forward/reverse function. Here's where it gets "Tricky": this is not just a simple "Y" valve; it is a "regulator," too! Moving it in the forward direction, one can feel a number of "detents" corresponding to various power settings. The catch is, the highest setting has no "detent"; you simply have to move the valve all the way to the end of its travel. Comparing the wrenches, I noticed the selector levers were loose! The lever on the "weak" wrench was so loose I could pull it off of the valve quite easily! It would travel through no more than three (3) detents and never reach the full power setting. Further examination disclosed an access hole on the bottom of the "well" where the lever couples up to the selector valve / regulator. When in the neutral position, this hole lines up with a set screw that is supposed to hold the lever in place. Snugging up the "good" wrench, I got nearly two (2) turns out of the set screw; the screw on the weak wrench yielded nearly three (3) turns! Once the levers were properly tightened, the wrenches went to working; even the function of the "good" wrench improved! The thing is, if I had purchased only the weak wrench, I might not have discovered the problem! When the instruction manual says that running the wrench for more than ten (10) seconds (without the socket turning) may damage it, there is no way this is the "Heavy Duty" tool touted in the sales literature! On the other hand, on a half (1/2) price sale, it's not a bad deal -- particularly if, as in my case, you can use it to ransom an Ingersoll Rand. Regardless, if you decide to buy one (1) and it does not work, make sure the selector lever is tight before you give up on it. Of course, this comment reflects only my personal experience; your mileage may vary. -101-

wow talk about a weak gun?
I got this gun as part of a kit. The spec says it provides 400lb of Tq. That could not be any further from the truth. This think can't even remove my lug nuts. I have then Torque down to 80lbs and this 400lb gun can't even do it. While my ************** 240lb electric one just zips it off. So sad, I exchanged it at a local sears thinking maybe that gun was defective. Nope the new one performs the same. Its funny that on the box they show someone using it to remove lug nuts off. Stay far far far away from this thing.

Useless. Skip this wrench.

This hunk of garbage couldn't budge the lug nuts on my car. Not even worth the cheap price. Skip this wrench and get model #19984 instead. Yes, #19984 costs more, but it uses less air and has a higher rating. It'll actually get your lug nuts off.

Great Wrench

For the price this is a great impact wrench. It has a very nice feel and works quite well. I use it for minor jobs like taking the tires off of my car for cleaning, and it's worked great thus far.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

JUNK

I bought this last year on sale for half price. I used it a few times and it doesn't work. I brought it back to sears a few times getting a new one everytime. it wouldn't take the lug nutz off my atv which are not torqued as mush as a motor vehicle..i though my compressor wasn't big enough (20 gal.) so I used my friends 33 gallon compressor and the same thing. so than I went to try it on my dads 60 gallon Ingersoll rand compressor and that didn't work either. I ended up giving it to a friend because they wouldn't give me my money back...he sold it at a swap meet. the next weekend I went out and bought a Ingersoll rand 231C 1/2-Inch Super-Duty Air Impact Wrench. and it is awesome. I took the lug nuts off my atv in seconds. I changed a flat tire on my gmc dually in the drive way like a pit crew........DONT BUY THIS GUN..

needed for my truck

I bought this to use with my air compressor. It works like a charm. I even let my sons (11 and 13) use it. They like acting out the pit crews on NASCAR racing.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent gun for the money.

I bought this item on sale for $39.99 I have been withholding my review for about 5 months. For the first 3 of those months I was with everybody else on the negative side, it wasn't worth it. The problem wasn't the gun it was the compressor. This gun uses 5.2 SCFM at 90 psi my 21 gallon compressor only puts out about 5 SCFM @ 90 psi I figured it was close enough. NOPE I recently upgraded my compressor to a 60 gallon 11.4 SCFM @ 90 PSI now this gun will remove lug nuts torqued to 180 foot lbs. It removed an outboard flywheel nut without blinking. Its a decent gun but you need a big compressor to run it adequetly

Can't believe Sears even sells it.

I received this as a birthday present several months ago. Tried using it on my lug nuts for my truck which is the primary reason for me getting it. It wouldn't even budge them. I was able to get them off by hand with the vehicles own lug wrench. They weren't even close to being that tight. I have the correct size air hose and more than ample compressor so its the junk Craftsman is putting their name on now. What happened to the Craftsmen name and American quality?

Works great

Used once. Worked as any other Impact Wrench. I had one from ********** , the Husky brand. Seem to work the same. Enough torque for what I use it for. Looks like its built solid.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
