Hukd is a strange place, I've never once seen an impact wrench on here but the day I'm looking at buying one and it's here. If they do next day delivery in buying one, I was going to buy the one below but this looks better for similar money. Thanks op

Used them in past and can do next day I’m sure.
I would go with Facom quality tool

Yes, powerful. This is the tool the tirechangers use to over tighten the wheels of my car so I have to use an extension bar to release them

Usually there is a variable setting on professional tools but they can't be bothered to change it.
Also I was always taught to tighten wheels using a diagonal pattern (etc) but they don't seem to do this nowadays

Not an expert by any means but this tool doesn't seem to have an air regulator control, just two power settings which really isn't very useful. This does, and comes with a set of sockets for less (Clarkes is a well known brand) For £95 at Machine Mart

Actually, looking at the picture (only) of the OP, it looks as if there is a torque regulator around the trigger grip? Or is it just a variable speed control? It doesn't look easy to adjust IMO

Clarke unit is a big tool.
easy to adjust air flow which will regulate torque and speed.

i was well impressed with this unit and would opt for Facom over Clarke any day.

compare size and N

Any garage that doesn't use a torque wrench to nip them up shouldn't be working on cars!!!

Totally different product, I've owned a clarke one in the past too and it was garbage. I have a lot of clarke tools and most are good but this is not comparable, For a start it's twice the size and three times the weight, it only has 680nm compared to this beast having over 800. Air pressure is set by an air regulator not the tool itself.

Sadly delivery is 3-5 day.... terrible, i'm out

Imo, power settings are not really necessary, the torque applied gradually depending how long you hold the impact action. If exact torque is important, torque bar should be used anyway, as others said. Impact wrenches are more useful to undo bolts.

Very good price by the way, if I didn't had two IR already, Id have grab one.

edit: on the foto, I can see a setting dial behind the trigger

Pwel to right on torque wrench. Scares me to think people not use them on wheels.
Next day delivery as well in link.
Can’t wait to show the lads when destroying some bolts lol

might just get this for my dad...xmas is coming
thanks OP

127lt per min average air consumption = 4.5 cfm. So you would need at least a 9 cfm free air delivery compressor to run this gun for more than a few seconds at full power (depends on size of air receiver to a degree). But you need a pump that will keep up with its air demands....at least a 3 hp bare minimum.

Would think 3hp is plenty be about 14 cfm run my old gun off 3hp easy and its lot more powerful gun than this one
Probley get away 2hp but not continusly

What you will find is that the figure you're quoting is the pumps air displacement. What you need to look at is the free air delivery figure (usually around 3 cfm per hp on piston pumps). This figure is also only calculated at 1 bar working pressure so it will be lower again at around 8 bar. Here's a link if anyone need further advice airsupplies.co.uk/air…ide

My 7.5hp screw compressor and 500lt reciever as well as 150lt of pipework would be just fine then

Yes, perfect......but just make sure you run that screw compressor hard or you will find that you get a condensation problem in the screw and oil and water mixing, resulting in screwed screw.
