Summary: Hard to beat for the price. I have to admit, I was a little worried if this would be up to the task of changing out a lower control arm on our van. With some of the reviews indicating it wouldn't break lug nuts loose, I had a back-up plan to procure a Milwaukee Fuel 18v wrench.
Summary: Have a 10 year old Cub Cadet that needed new blades. They had never been changed and the nut holding them was extremely tight. I tried breaker bars with up to a 4 foot pipe on the end- no good. Tried oiling them for a week- no good. I got this as a last result before taking the mower deck to a shop.
Pros: Easy Control, Ergonomic Design, Good Grip, Powerful Torque
Summary: Just finished 4-wheel brake job on wifey's Envoy. This thing is great! Not just the lug nuts, but I had a bleeder on the rear caliper that wouldn't budge with my 3/8 drive ratchet. I thought I was going to need a new caliper so no loss if I ruined it.
Summary: Over all it is a good tool, a little heavier than I expected. It looks and feels very good quality. Quite powerful, I haven't had any problems with it yet. So far it worked really good on all of my lug nuts. I paid $125 for it when it was on sale, a good deal for an impact wrench this powerful.
Summary: I'm not sure why so many were unhappy with this impact. I used it today for the first time. Started by loosening the lugs and the broke free no problem. Then the prize the strut bolt that attaches to the hub assembly. All these bolts were loosened using no penetrating fluid..
Summary: Was skeptical about the functionality of this tool at first, but was really surprised by how well it performs. Obviously not as effective as an air impact, but for what it is; it's great. Not as bulky as I thought it was going to be (weighs less than 10 pounds).

Summary: In short 'RTFM'. This works great and just as you'd expect if you've use a pneumatic wrench. You have to read the manual. It builds up force on the anvil over 20-30 seconds - just as a pneumatic does.
Summary: Glad I went with this and not the weaker ones. No, it's not an air-powered wrench. Having said that I have not met a bolt it was not able to take off. The only criticism is that it's a bit big and heavy. But then again, when I want to rotate my tires it's totally worth it.
