Very Compact Impact Wrench, Great for The Home Mechanic
I do a lot of automobile repairs and decided to obtain the new Airbase ½ inch Drive Industrial Duty Impact Wrench with 560 ft-lbs Torque. The first thing noticeable with this impact wrench is the compact size, which is very convenient accessing bolts in tight spaces, such as brake calipers and suspension parts. It comes with a single dial on the back of the tool for selecting both forward and reverse, as well as torque levels. I am use to impact wrenches with a separate forward and reverse toggle switch, so this tool takes some getting use to. After using it for several weeks, I have been satisfied with the the tools performance, but don't like multi-purpose dial for selecting both torque and direction.
The construction of the tool is good quality and the ergonomics are excellent. The maximum torque level is rated at 560, however nowhere does the literature state the torque values for the different settings. There was no operating instructions included with the tool, so I downloaded the basic (one page) Use and Care Manual from The Home Depot Website.
The single dial for selecting both direction and torque requires resetting the torque each time you change direction. I would not recommend this impact wrench for industrial use, however, it should do fine for occasional use by the home mechanic. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty to the original consumer, which excludes common wear parts.
This is my second impact wrench and while the old one was handy for light work it fell short of its specifications. This tool has no such problem.
This wrench had no fancy packaging. It came with no instruction, only a parts list. Fortunately the parts list answered the only question I had: how to adjust the torque and direction. The adjustment was made by a small knob on the base of the handle.
I was glad to see that the tool gripped my sockets firmly, yet also released them easily as well. My first test at maximum torque resisted my torque wrench at maximum setting of 100 ft/lbs. I could well believe it lives up to the specifications of 560 ft/lbs. Unfortunately with the wrench in reverse it also could not undo its own work! It took two long cheater bars to get the nut free. In future I will use the next to highest setting.
This Airbase Impact Wrench has all the Torque you'll need to do the hardest jobs. You'll need a 1/4 inch male quick change fitting, a few drops of oil for air tools and your ready to work. The forward and reverse lever on the back of the tool is also how you can regulate the torque. It' very smooth and quiet compared to my other torque wrench. It' has a great balance to it.

This impact wrench is a solid piece of equipment. It is strong and has worked for all of the projects that I have used it for so far. I found it to be a little heavy but not unbearable. The forward and reverse setting on the back makes adjusting the torque direction easy. It didn't come with any instructions, which was surprising, but it is not a difficult piece of equipment to figure out.
Received the 1/2 in. drive industrial duty impact wrench with 560 ft./lbs. max torque last week. Yesterday I went to use it, first off I went to attach the air hose to it and found out treads were damaged, I then took my tap and die set and was able to clear the treads. This impact wrench did it's job after clearing the treads. The wrench it self appeared to be used.
