Electric impact wrech recommendations

I gotta get one, and don't have a compressor. I've broken too many lugnuts
free with my hands. What do you guys recommend? Something that can smack
3/8" and 1/2" sizes well, good sockets... I'm tempted just to go to Sears
but wanna get a high quality tool for these needs...

Re: Electric impact wrech recommendations

Wrech? Don't you mean Wench or Wretch?

I like a good electric wench a don't mind tellin ya!


I have a DeWalt D291-04 1/2 inch. A friend gave it to me years ago, well
used and it has given me Yeoman's duty and never busted or given problems.
My older brother just bought a cheapo Canadian Tire name brand one. He
doesn't use it very often so he figured the good warranty well fare him
well. My guess would be go for a decent name one but you don't have to bust
the bank on a DeWalt if your just swapping wheels every so often. StuK

Since I'm the Wretch, I must have meant Wench. Damn Freud, what with his
slips of the tongue, and all the things of this nature. The wyfe will be
duly dismayed.

Yeah, that, and a few other things. Not many. I don't mind gettin out The
Torque Multiplier, I tell ya (long piece of pipe) to tackle most jobs. Some
are just repetitive and shitty and cramped. DeWalt is the preferred brand
down here as well, but for shyte's sake, are they ever proud of their
tools...

Mmm... well, the warranty will decide it as well for me. Got a $50 Sears
gift card too for x-mas so there we go... just wondered if there were an
obvious favourite in the parlour ; )

I say you crack and buy a damn compressor cause you'll eventually need one.
Trust me, I bought mine after being sick of needing one constantly and just
getting it for the shear practicality of it.. Shit, I remeber running it off
my second floor apartment patio(before getting a glorious roof having 2 car
garage) down the way into the parking lot to swap my heads to the other
sides cause the alt bolt broke and the EZ out broke in the bolt. Good thing
they had the same bolt pattern on the reverse side of the heads. Kept it in
the tiny front closet cause no one in Az uses jackets, my buddies dug it.

For the money you'd drop on this wrench that's about 1/4 or a 1/6 of a nice
compressor and some tools that will suit all your current and unknown future
needs. I'll start a thread on who has a compressor and why to prove this
point. Stew on it and get what you really want and need. Wait till Father's
Day for some bitchin sales.

Well, You have to have a compressor regardless for myriad other reasons. The
electric impact is just another tool in the arsenal. I mean what's wrong
with MORE tools? ;^) StuK

I have a Milwaukee. Great tool but not as powerful, or small as my air
impact. Fine for tires.
