Answer: 
This impact will function on an 8-gallon tank, but (as others have said) you'll spend more time waiting on the compressor to build-up than the time spent actually using the impact wrench. This can over-work todays medium/light duty (small tank) compressors. A 20-gallon compressor is ideal for minor automotive mechanic work. I used a portable 20-gallon for years without a problem.

A friend of mine owns this impact and it preforms great as I have used it several times, but he had to step up to a 20+ gallon compressor because his 10-gallon was constantly running if the tool was being used and we spent a lot of time waiting on pressure to build. Read Less

Answer: 
No. You need at least a 20 Gallon and set the regulator at around 105 PSI to allow for the pressure drop in the 25 or 50" x 3/8" air hose that you are using. You need 90 PSI at the tool for optimum performance.

Answer: 
Probably. Depending on how rusted the bolts/nuts are and how much time you have to wait for your compressor to catch up. The bigger the compressor and air hose, the more power you'll have for stubborn bolts/nuts.

This impact wrench, like most pneumatic tools, runs best with air pressure of 90 psi.
Your air compressor will easily deliver that air flow.

IR not working with 26gal air compressor

This question is from 1/2 in. 800 ft. lbs. Impact Wrench
Asked by
Milltown, NJ
Read all my Q&A
September 4, 2015
I got this impact wrench a while ago as a gift. I'm now trying to use it and it has no torque. It won't even take wheel lug nuts off the car ...a task that that I can easy use a lug wrench for. I can basically grab the socket in my hand and press the trigger without fear of breaking my wrist. What am I doing wrong? I'm using 3/8" 25ft rubber air hose. The air compressor is a cheapo Harbor Freight brand but is fairly new and I've used it with other types of air tools with no problems. I even tried using my 5gal Craftman compressor...and got the same result. I have it currently set to 90psi and I have the IR on the highest setting (I've tried them all actually) I even went up to 100psi and still nothing. I'm hoping it's user error and not a defective unit as I don't have a receipt for it and its been a sitting in my garage for more than 6 months.

I am running a 60 gallon compressor with a 11.5 scfm I was using an old craftsman gun rated at 400 foot pound of torque and it wouldn't even budge my lug nuts. At first I thought it was a dud. One day I was re configuring my fitting setup and as I went to put my cheap $5 HF 1/4" regulator (which by the way is the same one HD sells for $20) as I was putting it on it exploded into over a dozen pieces. Needing to use the impact right away I did without the regulator and without it the craftsman gun zipped the lug nuts right off. So what I'm saying here is make sure you have a quality regulator or it can totally bottleneck your air flow. It's a good possibility that your regulator is not up to the task and is causing problems. even though my CM gun was working fine now, a friend had actually given me the CM gun to use and at half the power and twice the weight CM was still charging $90 for it which I though was a joke! So I decided to pick this one up because your can't beat 800 FT. -LBS for $110 and also because it is a composite housing it weighs less than half my CM gun which is great! I will just be giving the CM back to my friend because I never really liked it and It's ungodly heavy! Anyways definitely check that there's not a problem with your regulator restricting airflow Read Less

Try 'flushing' with air tool oil, and also look for other small grease lube ports as well, which can make a huge difference, especially if it just sat and perhaps got rusty in the interim. Most of the variable settings only affect forward/installing torque; reverse/removal is usually full power.

Most of the variable settings only affect forward/installing torque; reverse/removal is usually full power. See if a shop or someone with bigger compressor can get it to work on theirs; swap air hoses; otherwise, sounds like a dud. Most air tools, unlike electric tools, can be disassembled, but it's not trivial; still, if all else fails, you might try that or find an old-fashioned fix-it shop to try, if they'll cap their fee. Once it's apart, it's going to be either an airflow blockage, or broken part that's apparent, and only one of those may be fixable. Good luck. Read Less

Answer: 
A few things come to mind. First, my earliest thought was that you had the power selector set in the low setting, but you mention having the "IR" set to all of the settings. So, let's explore something else.
Second, you mention a cheapo Harbor Freight and a Craftsman 5 gallon compressor, both set to 90 psi or even 100 psi. Pressure is one thing, but equally important is CUBIC FEET PER MINUTE output.

A few things come to mind. First, my earliest thought was that you had the power selector set in the low setting, but you mention having the "IR" set to all of the settings. So, let's explore something else.
Second, you mention a cheapo Harbor Freight and a Craftsman 5 gallon compressor, both set to 90 psi or even 100 psi. Pressure is one thing, but equally important is CUBIC FEET PER MINUTE output. According to the specifications on HD's website this tool requires 4.4 CFM to reach rated capacity. I don't know which model Harbor Freight compressor you have, but one of the "pancake" style I looked at before making these comments had only .6 CFM output and that won't blow out a candle, much less power this impact wrench. You may be showing 90 psi when you pull the trigger, but within milliseconds that pressure crashes and you have to have sufficient volume to rapidly replace that pressure that just went zipping out the tool exhaust. I have a 12 gallon DeVilbiss rated at 6.9 CFM and this tool works fantastic on even the most stubborn lug nuts.
Third, a 25 foot 3/8" hose is exactly what is recommended. Would suggest that you check the fittings to make sure they are flowing freely, or even replace them with fittings that indicate that they are low restriction or free flowing. Good output compressor, correct maximum length and diameter hose can be defeated by restrictive fittings.
One last thing.....oil and dry air. It's very important that air tools get sufficient lubrication. Make sure you use a decent quality air tool oil and put three or four drops down the inlet each day of use, or use an in line mist oiler . An in line drier to keep moisture out of the air will prevent rust and increase tool life. By the way, I read a review where a guy was having output problems with his impact wrench. He oiled it and bingo, power was restored.
Hope these suggestions help. I'm not some kind of air tool expert, just an ordinary guy who did a lot of reading before I bought this very same impact wrench. I'm completely satisfied with this tool and would recommend it to anyone wanting a decent quality wrench with 800 ft lbs torque for a shade over $100.

Don't waste your time or money using larger fittings. The tool can only provide
the designed torque. Meaning, the interior valves are sized to the working limits
of the air tool so you could install 2" fittings if you wanted but the air still has to pass
through the interior lines which are much smaller so the extra air is useless.

You might fit a 3/8" hose connector, if the threads are still 1/4", and screw into the tool base, as the internal diameter is a bit larger than with 1/4" hose fittings. The 'bottlenecks' internal to the tool are going to limit as well, but the biggest cumulative bottleneck is the length and diameter of hose. Use the shortest 3/8" hose, typically 25 feet, and notice most come with the 1/4" threaded ends. Read More

Use the shortest 3/8" hose, typically 25 feet, and notice most come with the 1/4" threaded ends. Most small to medium compressors come only with universal connectors that are threaded into the unit with a 1/4" fitting, so don't be too concerned - 50' of 1/4" hose is far worse than a couple short connectors, like a very long too-small extension cord would add resistance to a load. As long as the compressor can put out 4-5cfm at 90lb or close, this should work for home use. Read Less

Usually the bottleneck comes in the quick connect that attaches the hose to the tool and the hose to the compressor. Standard quick connects work fine, but realize that you will have pressure drop in the hose and couplers so you will need to set your compressor at roughly 100 to 105 PSI to achieve the 90 PSI at the tool. Also THD also sells a "High Flow" coupler set which will reduce the pressure lose discussed above. The SKU number for the high flow regulator set is:
Model # 036-0138H
Internet # 205184364
Store SKU # 100005400
Last: I would highly recommend that you use a compressor over 20 gallons to reach the tools maximum potential since most compressors under 20 gallon do not feature high flow regulators and therefore will not allow enough volume of air to pass from the compressor to the hose. Hope this helps and have a great holiday!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by There is NO way this wrench delivers 800ft-lbs with a compressor producing less than 5 scfm at 90psi, as claimed on the box and in the specs. Not even close. The wrench was not able to turn some bolts on my car even after I had loosened them with a breaker bar and cheater pipe extension. I estimate that I put about 400ft-lbs on the bolts to loosen them. The wrench was not able to match that. This is one of the few tools that I felt compelled to return after I had used it, because it simply does not work as advertised. October 26, 2016

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Could not remove bolts! I bought this because it had better stats than my current Craftsman one. I specifically bought this to remove some bolts for a brake job. It would not budge them. This thing is garbage. I don't think it's rating is right. I am using a 25 gallon compressor which should be more than enough. I bought this yesterday, used it today and am talking it back today. I just purchased an AirCat impact online that actually states the breakaway/reverse torque is 1295 pounds. Hopefully this new one will do the job that this Husky could not. I would not recommend this for anyone doing serious work on a vehicle. It might be fine for changing tires. I am including a picture of the bolts it would not remove. December 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Initial quality/value very high - case needs a boot This gun is lighter than my old-school all-metal gun. The controls are very convenient. Like many I don't have the $$$ to throw at industrial products. I was looking at HarborFreight Earthquake guns which are similar price ballpark, but this has some of nice advantages: 1) low-med-high force dial applies in both directions (loosen & tighten) where as HF only have "high" for loosen; 2) the forward/reverse knob is much more convenient than turning the force dial on HF and others. 3) HD/Husky offer 2 year warranty out-of-the-box, while HF only offers 90 days. The torque on this is much higher than my old gun - its' plenty for what I've needed so far - no idea how it stands in absolute comparison to others. The composite case will scratch quickly on driveway/ground - in a few uses mine show substantial superficial scratches (nothing so far to concern me about integrity of the wrench) - this could really use a protective boot like other professional wrenches - nothing available from HD/Husky that I can find. Am trying to retro-fit another brand's boot onto it. I believe this is a great value (5 stars worth) but subtracting 1 because I really want a boot, which I am willing to pay for. September 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the Job done The light weight is of the impact very nice. The air requirement does require an air hose that is shorter than 25' for maximum torque though. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Entry Level Impact I bought this thing to make tire rotations quicker and easier. This thing makes easy work of lug nuts. Definitely happy with my purchase. August 30, 2016
