This automated power tool brings high torque productivity while applying the least amount of effort by the user. This is done by accumulating energy in a rotating collection, then abruptly and rapidly distributing to the output shaft.
An impact wrench, when in operation, works based on acceleration of the motor, storage of energy which when connected to the output shaft can create a high-torque impact. The mechanism is designed in such a way that it allows the hammer inside to spin freely after delivering the impact. The choice of such wrench largely depends upon the application and usage. Compressed air is most common power source of these wrenches these days. There are some models that work based on hydraulics. However, keeping in mind the light duty work, there are many types of cordless or electric wrenches as well.
There are some points to consider however, when using, and more importantly, buying an air impact wrench. Probably the most touched upon issue and concern when purchasing an air wrench is whether or not the impact wrench you are getting, is the not only suitable to your specific needs, but also for the optimal output of the tool in general.
Buying an air impact wrench is an important addition to any do-it-yourselfer's home toolkit, but there are also a couple things that you need to remember before you go out and buy one. These are the size of your air compressor, what size drive you need, and not under-estimating how much power you'll need.
For uses other than taking off lug nuts, you'll want to find out what you're suggested torque rating is, and then add a decent safety factor to account for the difference between max torque and working torque (if working torque isn't provided by the company), and for any outside factors that'll make your nuts harder to get off.
