This impact is a good quality tool that is lighter than other brands that have the same torque.

Sticky operation, selection lever feels as if it doesn't actually set in the correct position. Have to pull the trigger several times to get the tool to engage. Moving the selector lever seems to have little effect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Great torque and comfortable on the hands.
This unit produced the advertised torque, when confirmed with a torque wrench. It is a very respectable weight and size for getting into tight spots. The grip is very comfortable to the hands and the composite material doesn't get icy cold (especially in colder temperatures) and provides a firm handhold.
The direction control is the only downside for me. Unlike some competitive units, having to rotate the switch on the back of the gun was cumbersome. Having a forward/reverse button would be much more intuitive, especially where blind or one-handed changing of direction is required.
For the price, it is still a very good product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CDOne Pathetic
I just bought one of these at my local HD tonight, brought it home and tried to use it on some M8 motorcycle rotor bolts. In a word, I would have to summarize this thing as "pathetic." It didn't touch the bolts, and I had to grab my heavier 1/2" CP gun instead. This is going back to the store tomorrow, and I'll probably end up buying the IR TiMax gun instead, even though it's 5x the price. If it actually works, it will be well worth the extra whereas this thing is just a paperweight.
On the positive side, it's light, quiet and appears to be well assembled. On the negative side, I think my compact 3/8" air ratchet may put out more torque, making this completely useless to me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deersen Heavy Duty for the Price
Not a whole lot to say really. I am an aircraft parts manufacturer and I rely on this tool frequently. For how much you pay, this feels very solid in your hands, almost as if it was carved from a solid block of iron. I own husky tools almost exclusively at work and use them pretty hard. I take care of them mind you, but they are well used. I would pretty much say that as long as you are getting the torque you need from this, it's a good purchase.

Obviously for the price you aren't getting industrial-grade equipment, but this feels like a very high quality tool that is nice to have in the tool chest. I only have a small air compressor capable of delivering 90psi, which is the minimum requirement for this tool. However the manual recommends at least an 8 gallon compressor for best results, and for good reason. My little compressor does a great job for about 3 seconds, and then begins to lose steam. Be aware that it will work with a smaller compressor, but only for very short bursts with lots of waiting in between.
Overall, it feels very solid and no doubt performs great when matched to the right compressor. Not a lot of bells or whistles, but just a solid basic air tool.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Painters1953 Adequate
I recommend only for small jobs, nothing professional or heavy duty. It works ok for me when I need to take off cabinet doors and simple things like that but I wouldn't recommend for anything heavy duty. Lightweight enough and easy to tote around so I don't have to bring my other monster. Not sure how long it will last and will post an update after six months or so.

I use this for home mechanic type work, basic lug nut & stuck rusty bolts, removal of shocks-struts etc It will do just about anything I need, and is more than reliable. I have recently used this to put a lift kit on my own truck and it made the job go quicker. Overall good product with basic functions and gets the job done.
