Product Description

19.2V Mechanics Combo Easily Tackles Heavy-Duty Jobs

The Craftsman C3 Mechanics Combo is a high-powered addition to your workbench. The combo includes a 1/2-inch compact lithium drill and an impact wrench, plus a full-size lithium battery, a compact lithium battery and a multi-chemical charger that will keep you powered up. The compact drill has a lightweight, ergonomic design, and its robust motor offers up to 340 in-lbs of torque when powered by the compact 19.2V Lithium Die-Hard battery.

The 19.2V Mechanics Combo also has a powerful impact wrench. Its motor generates 0-3000 RPM no load for tightening or loosening various nuts and bolts, and its impact mechanism allows you to focus on heavy-duty applications that produce up to 200 ft-lbs of torque. The 1/2-inch socket anvil makes for easy and secure socket connections. And no need to worry that you'll run out of power. Both the full-size and compact lithium Die-Hard batteries have two energy indicators that turn from green to yellow to red, letting you see the battery's energy level at a glance.

  • The Craftsman C3 Mechanics Combo is lightweight and compact, offering do-it-yourselfers an ergonomic design
  • Special features include a forward reverse switch and built-in LED light
  • The drill/driver includes a 1/2-inch single-sleeve keyless chuck, a 24-position adjustable torque clutch with overmold, 0-440 RPM high torque applications, 0-1600 RPM high-speed application, a bubble level and two screwdriver bits
  • The impact wrench offers a 1/2-inch socket anvil, a variable speed of 0-3000 RPM, 200 ft-lbs of torque and a socket extender for use in hard-to-reach areas
  • Combo includes a compact lithium Die-Hard battery, a full-size lithium Die-Hard battery and a multi-chemistry charger

Great kit!

Purchased this kit as I was looking for an 1/2" Impact and 1/2" chuck drill.  The lithium batteries were a bonus.  Already used the impact to remove wheel nuts on a truck and a axle nut on a motorcycle.  It had no problems with either of them and it feel more powerful then a couple of my air impacts (and it might very well be).  It sure beats hauling a hose/air compressor out to the car when you are trying to do a quick tire change because you got a flat in the morning.

Both tools "feel" very rugged.  They have some rubber grips and that feels like pieces for impact protection.  I love the battery indicator.  Basically you press a button on the front of the battery and it lights up either green, yellow or red.  At least gives you an idea as to how much power you have left.

The compact battery fits great on the drill and it was nice that it came with both a compact and a full size.  The batteries are light weight, but the balance of the tool didn't seem to be thrown off because of this which was nice.  I am not a professional, this is just for shop use.  My primary reason for the purchase was to have a portable impact I can take to the "You Pull It" junk yards.

Defiantly happy with my purchase!

Edit: 7/30/11

After owning this combo kit a few weeks I am wondering how I ever lived without it.  The impact as taken 2 trips to the local Pick N Pull auto wreckers and has made my life SO much easier.  I've only had 2 bolts that the impact failed to remove.  One was a sway bar end link and was bent, which I was able to remove with some difficulty (bruise on my hand to show for it) with my Craftsman Composite Pneumatic Impact Wrench, the other was a castle nut holding a spindle to an a-arm and my pneumatic impact even failed to remove that.

What really blew me away when was trying to remove the rear axle from my 2000 TL1000R motorcycle.  I had a 3 foot breaker bar on the nut and I was literally compressing the suspension trying to get the nut to break loose.  Grabbed the cordless impact and it came off with no problem.  I was very impressed after the breaker bar not working.

Also, removed lug nuts from a Nissan pickup no problem, A-Arm bolts, ball joint/spindle castle nut, sway bar mounts, just about anything I found at the junk yard it took off.

The battery charges very quickly and lasts a long time.  After the 2 trips to the wrecking yard the battery had just moved from the "Green" to "Yellow" in the indicator and it got a lot of use in those 2 trips.

I also got a chance to use the drill and was very impressed with it.  Used it to drill out some spot welds on some sheet metal and it did it without any problems.

Works as advertised

Husband loves these tools. He's a loyal customer to craftsman due to their 100% satisfaction guarantee and return policy. The battery stopped holding a charge and we had no troubles returning it for a new one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

19.2V C3 Mechanics Combo

Absolutely perfect, worked great. Removed all lug nuts on my SUV (150 LBS Torque) for tire rotation, then worked on my wife's car for a tire rotation (80 LBS Torque) with plenty of power left to work on more than one vehicle...

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome set!!!!

I have used the impact wrench more than the drill but I love both of them. I do some welding/fabricating on the side and I used this on some trailers I have been reworking. I removed and replaced 8 wheels and tires on 5200 lbs axles (6 lug), and then removed and replaced two sets of mower blades for sharpening all on one battery and still had charge left. I used it on an old truck I am restoring to remove some rusty nuts and bolts that I couldn't get off with my air wrench and it had no trouble. So far, I love this set! All of my friends and family that have used it are buying them now.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 19.2V C3 Mechanics Combo

This is the most reliable combo I purchased. Right out of the box the charge time was 45 minutes (total) for all 3 batteries. They are holding their charge. The grip is great, very well balanced. The light is spot on and a great help in the dark when changing a tire.  

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dissapointment

I received this as a christmas gift(christmas 2011, now July 2012), the impact driver has seen almost no use, the drill not very much more. In 7 months the high capacity Battery is already "defective". And while either tool is in use if they get any kind of stress put on them, such as normal drilling of a 1" bit through a 2x4, they quickly shut down completely for a few seconds until you let off the trigger and back on. I had cheap "kawasaki" drills before these, and if the charger had not failed after 4+ years I would continue to use them. They never shut down from being stressed, the batteries never became "defective" after a few months of little use. I hope Sears will give me some sort of replacement for these as I dont have a receipt, due to them being a gift. I am disappointed someone spent the money on these tools for me as a gift and they can not perform how they should. Growing up using only craftsman tools I expected a lot more.

C3 great value

I love my combo. They were a way better of a value than all the other brands i looked at. They run smooth. The batterys are wonderful. I love the lion power meter. And when they do go dead, The die hard charger takes them back to full power in no time flat. Thank you for always providing the products I need and love to have.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
