Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie I modified the case.
Whoever designed the case should go back to designer school. I had to drill holes in the case to make the tools fit after the 1/4" fittings were installed. If they had swapped the 3/8 drive and grinder tools everything would have fit without having to have a fitting sticking out the side. The other short coming is that you can't put the retainer spring on the air hammer because it won't fit back in with it screwed on. JUST PLAIN DUMB!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by raab1 The case is useless
If I had known I wouldn't use the case, I would not have purchased this item. The last Husky air tool set I had was a little different but it all fit in the case. That set was no longer available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KennyC Husky 4-Tool Air Tool Kit - Works Great!
I read a lot of reviews about this Husky 4-Tool Air Tool Kit. I also noticed a lot of negative comments, statements such as the impact wrench would not remove lug nuts. I just purchased this set yesterday and today I needed to remove the rear wheel from my commercial ZTR mower and replace the valve stem. I decided to put the impact wrench to the test. I set the regulator at 95 PSI on my Husky 20 gallon compressor. It brought the first lug nut off with ease. It would not budge the remaining three lug nuts. I knew it had to be something other than the impact wrench. So I went and looked at the compressor and the regulator was on fifty PSI. I cranked it up to 95 PSI again and it worked great and removed the remaining three lug nuts with ease. So, if you are one that has had a negative experience with this tool set, I highly suggest that you check your regulator. The regulator and pressure gauges that come on these lower quality compressors are mediocre at best. It is always a good ideal to replace them with a quality regulator/gauges. I am happy with this tool set and it can't be beat for the money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Impact Wrench is Completely Useless
All the tools work great except for the impact wrench which is so weak I can practically hold the impact socket from turning with my hand, even when it's set to full power "4". I'm running the tools on a Huskey 33 gal compressor and have followed all the instructions on the tools, as well as read all the tech answers in these reviews to get the impact to work and yet it is still completely anemic. I have the same problems with it that the others do in these reviews, yet the techs seem to think it's always operator error. I'll be looking to return the impact wrench or use it as an anchor or chock my tires with it as that's all it's good for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JayJ Fix case with a heat gun easily
Once you add the included nipple hose fittings to the tools, the tools won't fit in the case, but this is EASY to fix. You'll need a Ryobi (or other) heat gun. (set it to 500 degrees if it's adjustable). Put the nipples on each tool, lay the tool in place, remove tool, heat area where nipple goes for 10-15 seconds, insert tool and press down. Let it cool for about 2 minutes and move on to the next tool. The only tool that this won't work with is the ratchet. You'll have to drill that one all the way through the case so the nipple sticks out of the side of the case about 1/2 inch. I'm not sure, but I may have been able to heat the plastic inside and outside of the case for this one and been able to push it out...maybe. I drilled it and it works fine. It took 15 minutes to fix the case for all of the tools.
I haven't been able to use the tools yet, but this is a stupid oversight in the case design. They could have done this during manufacturing (except for the ratchet). -1 for the case. The tool quality looks good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CrashTestDummy Impact Wrench Hits Like A Wet Noddle
The impact wrench spec states 300 ft-lbs at 90 psi, 4 cfm. Event if running on a compressor that can't sustain 4 cfm @ 90, the first couple of hits should be strong. At that point it's just a matter of waiting for the compressor to cycle on to build the pressure back.
With a 3/4 impact socket attached, holding the socket you can feel the complete lack of power in this tool running off an 8 gal, 4 cfm @ 90 psi commpressor.
In contrast, the BOSTITCH BTMT72391 running off the same 8 gallon, 4 cfm @ 90 psi compressor (Lowes Cobalt - $129) easily removed lug nuts torqued to 100. It is rated at 500 ft-lbs, 3.9 cfm @ 90.
In fairness it could certainly be that we got a bad one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bobalooy For light duty
Everything but the 1/2 impact works great. The 1/2" impact doesn't have enough power to move a fly. I had to break everything loose with a breaker bar first then use the impact wrench. I read other reviews that said they broke lug nuts loose so I thought it would be a good deal. They must have been doing lug nuts on a Geo Metro, not a full size pick up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by homemech Useless case, nice tools
The tools seem fine but the case is useless once the quick connect fittings are installed in the tools. Whatever product manager was in charge of this should be fired. Sure the case has places to store the quick connect fittings but what good is a quick connect fitting if you have to remove it (using a wrench) from the tool each time you want to put the tool in the case? It's a nice looking case and would be a really nice way to store and carry the tools BUT THE TOOLS DON'T FIT. I'm dumbfounded. See the picture.
