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.
If you are thinking about buying an wrench with sudden burst of power, Ingersol Rand Impact Wrench is a good option for you. It will save you from extra effort and will help you perform your job quicker. For all those worried about accessibility of this wrench to tight places, 18V Dewalt Impact Wrench comes with compact body that can serve the purpose. The durable frameless high speed of this wrench can ease variety of your operations. It is, however, important to go over Impact Wrench Review before zeroing on any particular model.
Finally, a common mistake is to under-estimate how much power you'll need. Taking off the wheels on your car is a common example. The manufacturers recommended torque for your lug nuts is probably between 80-140 ft-lbs, so people will "play it safe" and get a wrench with a 220 ft-lb max torque. The problem with this is firstly that the max torque in an impact wrench is always more than your "working torque", and not all companies give out that information.
Another important thing to determine is what size drive your impact wrench should be. A lot of people immediately think that bigger is better, but that's not necessarily the case. You really don't need a 1" impact wrench to loosen a 10mm bolt! And you definitely don't want to try to loosen a 2" bolt with a 3/8" wrench. The best thing to do is to figure out what sized nuts & bolts you'll be using your impact wrench on most frequently. Then find the impact sockets in that size, see what size drive they're available in, and get the drive size that will work best with the size of sockets you'll be using.
