Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 90
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer 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.

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 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.

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.

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.
