"1,000 ft-lbs of nut busting torque"
hahahaah, that's kinda funny.

Great looking tool, I don't know much about impact wrenches so I made my contribution.

Avg. Air Consumption: 5.0 cfm/142 l/min.; @ Load 24 cfm/680 l/min.

Hope you've got a big, massive PSI compressor, or you won't be able to hit those numbers.

Link to a 24 CFM rated compressor.

Unless you're working on dump trucks, I don't see the need for that kind of over kill.

Hahaha, theres no such thing as overkill when it comes to power tools, at least we know that thing will break anything loose..for about 3 seconds until your compressor depressurizes.

And you're from Georgia?


A badass tool at any rate, but garrett's right, unless you have a big 230 volt compressor you'll have a hard time reaching its rated torque. But if you're working on an integra, that gun running at 1/2 capability should be more than enough lol

I know why you really bought it, because its got TI in the part#



And Gvtec that is the best Sig I have seen by far, it goes well with my saying for all the EMO kids
"Here's a gun, its got one bullet, you know what to do"

I've screwed up enough stuff to know that a powerful air tool can be more trouble than it's worth.

If you ever have to fix anything you've assembled with an air tool, without the air tool, you will cuss yourself. Had to do a quick shock change on the track car at the track and learned that lesson real quick.

You have a good point there, I just got done watching home improvement, and Tim allen said something similar to that so I posted it up.

Damn thats a powerful gun but nice. The guns we have at work are pretty sh*tty and my manager just bought some sh*tty ass heavy one... not sure how much torque it has but all I know is that this thing must weigh at least 10lbs.

I usually use the gun to shoot the stuff on most of the way and then hand torque it myself.

Nothing beats a good breaker bar when you have an impact gun as well. I've broken at least two breaker bars at work from people shooting stuff on at full strength.

Power tools rock. Arg aurg ough! ("Tim Allen" grunting) lol. That thing is cool but I dont think I'd pay that much for an impact wrench. I don't need something that powerfull, but it is always nice to know the power is there if you need it. Hahaha. Have fun w/ it.

That part is hilarious!

I don't have the pleasure of using an impact gun at my home (technically I'm not even allowed to work on the car in my own garage) so I am curious about something. When you pull the trigger to activate this 1,000 lbs-ft of torque, how do you make sure that torque is used for "nut busting" and not "arm busting"? That seems like a lot of torque to hold against if placed against something solid.

Well i work at Nissan as a tech air is running at about 170psi right now and it can be turned up if necessary... as for it running out im not even sure where the air comes from all i know is there is a hose coming out of the wall i use and have never seen the air run out... i bought this wrench because i have borrowed it from a co-worker and i love it its so powerful

for most bolts i use a drill air ratchet or butterfly impact i use mostly for seized bolts tires, and like them big ass bolts in the suspension... oH and those big ass bolts holding sub-frames on to a car are Terrible without a impact

The torque is generated closely to the socket that it doesn't cause the gun to rotate. You can hold them in place with one hand without any problems.

That's cool. I wish I could have one


I would be toasted by the homeowners association if they heard a air compressor and one of those impact guns going, so I've never even touched one. "The garage is for parking only" they say, whatever with that but it would be pretty obvious with one of those things going.

NEVER EVER put a socket in and pull the trigger without it being on a bolt.

Ask me why? try it out your self and find out!
NUT-BUSTING POWER!!!


(the socket spun off so fast and hit me in the nutz!)

good advice. i had a swivel and socket on the end of my craftsman impact. i was working underneath on the rear motor mount... socket slipped off... flew up and dented the ceiling almost hitting my buddy in the face.
