Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Great product and would recommend
Bought this cause my old craftsman was either not strong enough at 300ftp or just tired. It just could not budge a harmonic balancer bolt. Got this cause I believe that it is a good value. Put this baby on the bolt tapped the trigger and the first hit turned the bolt.
I believe that this product will be a great help on down the road.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aged 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crow5716 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TimK 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chevy513 Monster of a gun, punishes any bolt with ease!
This gun is amazing! First off it is simply a monster 800ft lbs easy! I love the composite house it makes it light weight, the forward backward switch is nice and the power setting control knob is high quality, the ring holder that holds sockets on is great it's not to tight or to loose. Prior to this gun I had an IR titanium running 780ft lbs, with a claimed 1200ft lbs of nut busting torque, unfortunately my IR was stolen and I had worked in the truck industry for 15 years now not doing that for a living anymore I couldn't justify spending over $300 on a new IR so I got this Husky 1/2" 800ft lbs Impact Gun, well so far it has done everything my IR ever did and at a third the price, I'm am very impressed with this gun and I highly recommend it! Before I purchased this gun my friend had loaned me a craftsman gun and it would not remove lug nuts and I know I'm running enough power with a 60 gallon compressor running 155psi with 11.5scfm at 90psi, so I went and bought this gun I had my eye on it for months. before I used it I was re configuring my air filter, ball valve shut off and regulator setup, as I went to tighten my regulator it exploded into about a dozen pieces and reading up I realized it was way to small for my setup. wanting to try my new Husky gun I just ran without a regulator to give it a shot. first I flooded it with oil like the manual says to do and then ran it in both directions for about 30 seconds. Then down to business I put it on my truck lug nut that i had tightened with a 24" breaker bar and all my weight on it, I put the gun in reverse and bam it took that lug nut off faster than I could blink an eye! I proceeded to take of the other 5 lug nuts and zip zip zip I felt like I was in a NASCAR pit crew! I ran all 6 of those bolts off in less than 20 seconds! and the compressor used hardly any air and never kicked on it only use about 5 pound of air. I should mention that I was running 50 feet of 3/8" air hose and I was using those new husky high flow aluminum fittings Model # 036-0138H, and believe me those suckers push some CFM and psi! Let me put this straight right now, ANYONE WHO SAYS THIS GUN HAS NO POWER IS NOT RUNNING ENOUGH PSI OR CFM TO IT! You had better get yourself in line and not try to run some little 8 gallon compressor and then try and say that this gun has no power and is junk, the fact is that if you can't run this gun then your compressor is junk or your air is getting bottlenecked somewhere. So if you can't run this gun then take it back and realize your compressor isn't made to run serious air tools or buck up and buy a real compressor if your want to run a real 1/2" gun and you want to run other serious air tools and if you do that then you'll see the real capabilities of this gun and realize that it's a beast!!!
