      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.

      Dont Buy!

      Purchased this with confidence thinking craftsman would stand by their products. Box said it was rated at 400 ft-lbs but couldn't remove anything. Checked to make sure it wasn't compressor or lug nut being to tight but was hand torqued at around 80 lbs. Tried to take it back but sears wouldn't take it. Don't know if ill be doing craftsman again based on this experience.

      Good design but poor quality control

      I bought this tool with the tire maintenance kit for $49.99. The price is much cheaper than my Craftsman HD impact wrench and my CP impact wrench. Just don't know whether this wrench is powerful enough to handle wheel nuts or not. I had to overhaul this wrench with the trigger valve and spring, and added oil into the hammer chamber. There was no oil inside the hammer chamber when I took out the oiling screw. I also had to tighten the screw at the forward/reverse valve at the neutral position. Once I fixed these problems, the impact wrench works fine. What is the hack, I wait for Christmas when the price drop back down to $24.95 to get one more. If I can overhaul and fix the problem, it is a good tool for occasional use.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Paperweight

      This impact gun is junk. Tried to remove the lug nuts on my wife's car that I had already broke loose and it barely spun them off. Seems to me Craftsman tools are really heading downhill.

      Do not waste your money on this

      I have no idea where they get 400lbs from... I work at a Toyota dealership and this gun could not remove lug nuts from a prius.. how embarrassing. Then, when I took the gun back to sears, the employee working told me that its an entry level gun, and wouldnt return it until I came back and really complained about it. Worst experience ive had at sears. A junk tool and horrible customer assistance

      No torque with this impact

      This impact wrench has no power. Knew this wasn't top of the line when I bought as I intended only occasional use. Every time I have used it, it has not been able to break loose anything. It claims to have way more power than it does. Changing brands for the replacement. I have always been a diehard Craftsman tool user, but the quality isn't what it used to be. Time for a change.

      Not worth the money

      I tried to use this gun to take out some 1/2" bolts that had been anti- seize treated and it wouldn't even budge them. I used my 3/8" kobalt and it took them out with ease. There's no way this gun is 400ft. lbs

      No good

      bought this gun to be used for pulling lug nuts off and other misc small things, didnt have much expectation for it at all, but first time i wanted to use it was to drive some 6in x 3/4 bolts through a pre drilled holes into wood and it would not even move the bolt with pressure at 150psi on a new compressor
