For the speedy removal/screwing in of heavy machinery nuts.
* Heavy-duty ½'' square drive reversible impact wrench
* Max. torque: 230ft/lbs
* Polished aluminium finish with fitted rubber sleeve on handle
* Average air consumption: 4CFM
* Quick-release adaptor for air line and 1 in line oil lubricator
However, the description is actually quite poor compared to what you get. The tool itself is pretty meaty, I'm guessing the maximum torque is pretty much correct. It runs fine off my fairly weedy compressor, although I think I'd have to wait for the pressure to build back up to take all 20 wheel nuts off my car.
However, the best bit is that it actually comes with a full complement of impact sockets, all the way from 'too small to need an impact wrench' 9mm, up to a 'mmm, now this feels like a mans tool' 27mm. And an extension bar for those awkward 'I need a few more inches' moments.
The impact wrench on it's own is a pretty good buy compared to Machine Mart and the auction-site-that-must-not-be-named, but with the full set of sockets it gets much better. This deal has already been mentioned, but in the footnote of another deal, so I thought it could do with a bit more attention. IMHO out of Aldi's deals for today it's one of the best.
And has anyone noticed Aldi like putting out power tools on Mothering sunday? I'm sure I was buying my MIG welder this time last year...
