powerful, great, better than you think!

i am very very impressed with this new unit..i have 5 other C3 tools and have been waiting for a stronger impact than the 1/4" one that has been out.  today i brought it to the junkyard , removed 2 wheels with it then took the huge strut bolts out and the a arm bolts out on a mustang.  those of you that have done this know they require alot of power.  this was all done on a Lithium battery witch i might consider a must with this 1/2" gun

 

buy and you will no regret! it is about time!

Not as Advertised; Lacks power
I bought this because I needed an impact to go. I am a big C3 series fan and have several other tools; so when this one came out and the need was right I went to get it. I used fully charged bats and this so call impact did not even turn one lug nut off my full size truck. I thought it was the bat but I tried another fully charged bat and it still did not work. I then used my wrench and socket by hand and with little force, the lug came lose, I then used the tool to take them off. I did this for the rest of the tires. I used hand tools then this tool to help me take off the lugs so I did not have to turn the lose nuts by hand. And when it came to putting the lugs back on, forget it, I had to use my hands tools again. This tool should not be called an impact. If it is not powerful enough to take off my lug nuts, then its not for me. I will be taking it back because I have no other use for it. I think craftman rushed this product out because I have seen other cordless impact wrenchs do the job. I hope craftman fixes it and gets it right because I would love to add this tool to my series. But for now, I will make sure to take the vehicle to my house and use my air tools.

Decent tool for the home owner

Good home owner tool. I have used this mostly for removing car tires and lawn mover blades and the occasional car project where an impact wrench is helpful. It is nice not to have to get the air compressor going and be limited by an air hose. Good for changing a tire when not at home too. The 200 ft-lb rating is relatively low for an impact wrench but for how I use it is fine 90% of the time. Saves me time and aggravation. If the Bolt/nuts are rusted it may not have enough power to do the job. It works fine if the battery is somewhat fresh. The Ni-Cd batteries in general do not hold their charge as well as the newer lithium batteries. The guys complaining that it does not work either have a defective unit or the batteries are not fresh. If you are a professional and use it daily then the battery drain down and lower torque will drive you crazy. If you are a pro get a more expensive one with more torque and a Lithium battery. Good deal too for the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Impressive...so far

This is my first 'cordless' impact so it's not easy for me to make a comparison to others in it's class. I mostly trusted the 'Craftsman' brand and reputation. I've only used it a few times thus far but I believe that me and this tool will get along very well together. From the first use I could tell this wrench has some 'muscle'(pretty good from a battery operated devise). I saw it's not the strongest by looking at the specs. but definitely the most economical when the price is factored in. I've seen many others out here that cost more but torque rating is far less. I gave it four stars for the simple reason that I haven't had it long enough(1 month) to give an 'excellent' rating. But I challenge anyone to find a better tool for this price and from a company that's been around for decades!

It Rocks-- the Lug Nuts Off!

Great impact wrench-- especially effective if you use with XCP 19.2v battery. The extra torque popped my lug nuts(110 ft. lbs.) right off... after a 1-2 sec. initial impact. I have small-medium sized hand-- LOVE the rubberized grip... feels secure. Use both hands with this wrench, the torque will definitely snap/kick-back on tight bolts/nuts.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent purchase for the price

Have been looking for an inexpensive cordless impact wrench to supplement my 19.2 volt Craftsman cordless drill and got a great on-line price for the C3! This tool is ideal for hanging ledger boards, lag bolting lumber, removing tough wheel lug nuts or any other heavy duty use that you may encounter.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not so good

torque leaves a bit to be desired, it wont break lugs loose, even ones tightened previously by hand and the battery dies when it sits, even with direction switch in the center lock position. long story short, keep looking.

oilfield approved

I bought this item a couple years ago to use on the drilling rig i work on. I wasn't sure how well it would hold up in the conditions that i work in. I have been pleased and surprised as to how durable this tool is. It has been covered in grease, dirt, mud, oil based drilling fluid and it kept on working. Granted it finally died on me just a couple of days ago, but so what. That thing ran the gauntlet on that rig. If you can get any cordless tool to last more than a year on a rig then it has to be pretty tough. All in all it worked well and I'm currently on the website buying another.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Amazed at the performance

I was skeptical at how this would work. I used it on a 2014 Acura MDX and a 2012 Acura TL this weekend to rotate 8 tires. One litium ion battery did the job. It was able to loosen all of the lug nuts without a problem (94 ft/lb torque). Made life so much easier on my back!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
