Bought this for work because the ones they provide keep breaking and disappearing off work truck. This is a great price and is working great. I use it to chip concrete off an augur. I bought a cheap one from H@*$*# Fr#*!#$ (dont want to say the name because I do like shopping there) and it was useless after a week.
I have owned the original craftsman air impact gun that was already in well used condition when I acquired it 15 years ago. I used it while working on cars. Worked particularly well when installing "A" arm suspension bushings and cutting rivets on the radius arm bushing bracket on Ford trucks. I now work on semi-trailers. This past week I was replacing half of the bottom rail, side skins and uprights on a wrecked trailer, which are all attached with rivets (by the hundreds). My original craftsman finally cracked its case. Although it still works, the barrel works loose too easy. I ordered this one and finished the job. This one appears to be as well built as my first one. I expect it to last another 15-20 years. If you are considering buying this gun, you need to realize that this is a long barrel model that doesn't hit as fast, but does hit harder. If you need a little more control, a short barrel model may be more to your liking. We use short barrel ones for setting buck type rivets.

Bought this for working on exhaust systems and for driving out steering stabilizers/mcferson struts etc. Saves my arm since I'm not as young as I used to be...grin

As the item clearly states it is a medium duty hammer. If you need to use this everyday you may want to get a heavier duty one. For my needs it works perfectly.
I got this impact hammer cause I just wanted one. Lots of power. One time I hit the trigger and nothing happened. Then I oiled it up and worked beyond my expectations. Keep oil in it and it will not let you down. I use it all the time. Ive own it for over a year now. Ive wanting to buy one for home but the sears store close to me is always out of stock. But if it's there when I go there I will for sure pick it up.

The 2nd time I used Craftsman Medium Duty Impact Hammer 19897 the product would quit working, air was escaping. I would jiggle the chisel and it would work for a few minutes then stop. Could not find a manual online. Talked to 5 different Sears phone numbers and no one could answer a question on this operational problem, no one knew the product. The name Craftsman does not mean that much now.
The air hammer is very easy to use and such a great price! I bought this for my dad for his birthday he has used it alot and loves it I have also used it. It is smaller but packs quit a punch. It will cut a bolt right off with ease! I used it to split some tin and very nice job!!! Highly recommended for annyone!!
In reading the reviews of the people who have had negative results with this impact hammer i.e. poor internals, air blow by, short life, there is there is one question I would have to ask. Did these people use air tool oil in their impact hammer or have an inline oiler that delivered oil to the tool? Unlike most every other pneumatic tool which has gears and ball bearings requiring regular oiling, a pneumatic hammer works on the principle of a burst of compressed air which drives a shaft. If you use oil in your pneumatic hammer and you get any dust or dirt inside the internals this will mix with the oil turning kind of gummy and will not allow the shaft to slide. In most cases if you take apart the hammer and clean the parts with a nonresidule cleaner you will have no problem with your impact hammer.
