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.

1/2" impact wrench

After reading all of the reviews for this item (including the ones that complained about this wrench not being able to break lug nuts), I decided to take the plunge and buy this. The main use for this gun will be for removing tires. Once I got home I hooked it up and immediately tried to break loose a lug nut. The wrench couldn't do it. I double checked everything and the wrench still would not break the nut loose. Then I noticed I had a very tiny leak at the connector on my hose. I had my ear up to it and barely (I mean barely) heard an air leak. I tightened the connection up and tried the wrench again. The lug nut flew right off. I was ecstatic. If you have the proper set up with no leaks, this wrench will be great for the home DYI'er.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

lack power

The impact does not enough power to even loosen lug bolt, it would be good household use. But for the price not a bad deal. Over all not bad.

Cant Complain

For the price point it is the perfect impact driver if you use it from time to time and not everyday but it is not designed to be used that much, but to provide novice users like myself and opportunity to afford a good impact tool. Craftsman is great at having the right grade for the right Person so that you are not sitting on a $200 tool that you don't use often. now with a $40 tool it's much easer to justify the purchase. Again great tool I would recommend it if you are not planning to user it daily or p[professionally.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Had to return it

I bought this to help loosen some bolts holding the blades on my tractor mower deck. The wrench was unable to loosen any of the bolts. I have a lot of Craftsman tools, and have never had one that simply did not do what it is advertised to until this purchase. If you need an air impact wrench, read other reviews and find one that does not have the many negative reviews that this tool does.

1/2 impact

Please note for the average mech. this item will work for if you break the bolts loose. I torque all bolts on my vehicle and I could not get a 85 foot pound torque wheel off the car with out breaking free first. I have a 400 psi compressor and only 50ft hose. My last impact was from IR and im going to get same item.Worked everytime.

This impact is a piece of junk

What is the purpose of an impact? To loosen tight bolts, right? This thing cant. I can do it myself with a 3/8" drive ratchet, but this impact cant. Long story short, it is completely worthless.
