Re: cordless impact wrench

My tyre guy uses a snap on, says its pretty good. I was looking into buying one but then I got a big compressor so I stuck with the air gun.

Re: cordless impact wrench

all cordless 18v Dewalt
The impact wrench is good for big screws but haven't tried it with bolts yet
Beauty of Dewalt is they cover just about everything so we don't have to have lots of different chargers /batteries
i wonder how this works

Re: cordless impact wrench

First generation ingersoll rand 19.2 is total rubbish but the newest 20volt one is meant to be as powerfull as the 2135 qtimax air gun(I have this and if it is as powerfull then it will be awesome,but not sure if it is available in the uk till later in the year.???
At the moment I have the facom which is the most powerfull on the market at the moment (500nm and more powerfull than the snapon), the new ones come with 18volt battery's because the 19.2v battery's were rubbish and wouldn't even take 4 wheel nuts of before being flat.....(I got all my battery's changed under warranty......no probs.
According to mac/facom tool guy the battery's have a ten year warranty,but they don't like to tell you that......had mine 2 years and recently replaced a 19.2v battery for 18v one..again no prob at all......
