I got this impact wrench as a Christmas present to go with the Craftsman Professional 27-gallon upright compressor I purchased earlier in the year. Overall, it has worked well, though it is a bit on the delicate side for a "professional" tool. The trigger and selector switch are not very rugged, and the finish on the tool will last about one job before it's completely scuffed. The silver head is painted, if you put it down on concrete, it will scratch immediately. I have my doubts that the tool is putting out the claimed torque, but for taking off lug nuts and most bolts, it works just fine. For the same price, you can buy an Aircat 1150, which puts out 1300 lb-ft of torque (verified) and is assembled in the USA. The Craftsman Pro is now my back-up wrench and the Aircats get the daily usage. For a home user, this tool will seem amazing and will probably be everything he/she will want. For a pro who wrenches for a living, this wrench will leave you wanting.

I recommend it for it lightweight and compactness. Recently, I just ordered an Aircat 1150k and it is a beast; however, this is a great gun. I upgraded to this from the Craftsman Composite one not the cheap one but the one that costs around ~120
Received this impact as a Christmas gift from my parents. Was a little worried from reading some of the bad reviews on it but this is an amazing impact for the money. I have a 27 gallon craftsman professional compressor with a regulator and air filter/water remover; this impact works wonderfully with this setup. It has 3 torque settings (idk what the torques are on these settings?? Depends on air pressure/flow I guess) but it doesnt have any trouble removing my lugs on setting 1. My lugs are properly torqued and coated with anti-seize though. Ive removed some lugs from vehicles that are neglected and setting 3 zipped them right off. When putting lugs on, I find that a few quick bumps on setting 1 torques the lugs just under 100 ft-lbs as verified by my craftsman torque wrench. The paint on the nose of the impact does chip off very easily. Would be great if this area has a rubber boot over it so you could quickly lay the impact down. Highly recommend this impact!

711 ft lbs my ****. This thing has less power than my cordless 3/8' impact. Will not take off lug nuts, which should be no sweat for any 1/2' drive impact. When you think impact you think this is the tool that will either take it off or break it off. Again this thing can't remove normally torqued lug nuts. Basically this thing just vibrates and makes noise, that's all its good for. Take it to the recycling yard for scrap. Better yet, don't buy it at all. waste of my money. Craftsman has become garbage.

I purchased this product, and I'll have to add that it has a lot of power. At first, I was skeptic about it because I was always going for the top name brands like Mac and Snap-on. I work in a body shop, and very often I have to remove the tires from a vehicle to repair wheel-well openings on the quarter panels and fenders. Before, I was using the MG725 Snap-on impact wrench to remove tires. I had it for over a year, until it started giving me problems, since I didn't buy it new, but used for $200.00 dollars. I wasn't going to pay close to $600.00 dollars for a new one, which I think is absurd. Instead, I came across the Craftsman Professional 1/2 impact wrench. I read the aspects on it, and as soon as I saw that it was equipped with 710 lbs of Torque, I had to get it. I tried it on a 2011 Dodge Ram Super Duty diesel truck, just for the heck of it. I was amazed that the impact wrench removed the lug nuts quickly with a 60 gallon air compressor.

I had on old Husky impact wrench that was pitiful. I purchased this one with high hopes, and my prayers have been answered! This tool is great, plenty of power for those really tough jobs. I love it.
