Looks good!
Looks tempting for occasional use when compared to air or battery that's if the spec's are accurate anyone had one to comment on?

ffs literally just purchased a battery one off my mate
Very tempting, thanks OP

I just ordered a Clarke CEW1000 from ebay for £62.50. These look like the same tool but branded differently. Don't know whether the internals will be the same.

The clarke one is 450nm torque whereas this is 320nm so I guess it is different parts.

The reviews i found online for parkside power tools were all good. If I hadnt ordered the clarke about 30 seconds before coming on HUKD then I would have probably held out another week for one of these.

I want it for undoing a crankshaft pulley bolt on my car and other general garage work.
Would be very interested in reviews on this.

They don't look anything like the same model rebranded to me - usually the plastic shells are identical bar colour, but these two models look completely different right down to the switch, the metal drive section, etc.

Either model looks like a good buy though, if I didn't already have a pair of air powered ones this would be on my shopping list.

My mistake. I had a image of a Moss impact wrench open still from my lengthy search and confused the two!

In that case personally I'd have more reason for concern but reviews do seem good. Still voting hot.
That's another £29.99 this site has cost me ... I've had a couple of air wrenches from Aldi but it would appear my compressor is just not up to it. I didn't even know mains ones existed!
These are great got a Clarke 240v and a 12v one, better than dealing with air leaks.
For direct drilling into concrete and wood??

That doesn't sound right and not the normal use for an impact wrench. Looks great value as an impact wrench but would take their description with a pinch of salt.
Think its a case of you get what you pay for .

I don't have a crankshaft pulley to do but I wished I had one of these when I was doing a wheel-bearing - to tighten 140 nm then a further 90 degrees (bloody audi I had to put a scaffold pole on my 600mm bar to get the pressure on) you should have seen the problems I had in taking it off (you had to get someone to stand on the brakes to stop the car from moving while you did it) - anyway I could have done with this (I will get one now) - not sure if 320nm will be enough?

I guess you could always return it if its not powerful enough?

Tightening is limited to 100Nm, though.
Lidl tools are usually very good for the money.

1: I think it is a tool I would like to keep although it would be annoying to get it out and find it not powerful enough
2: I have nothing to test it on now as the jobs done and I would have only used it to undo - I would have thought it too risky to tighten torqued bolts!

I like these because they don't round the nuts as you can keep the socket square!

I only commented because you stated you needed to tighten 140Nm then a further 90 degrees.
I don't quite understand the torque tightening. First off, an impact wrench really shouldn't be used to tighten anything. It doesn't know the difference between 100Nm as the nut/bolt hits the end point, and 100Nm as it tries to cross thread itself into oblivion. Use a ratchet and then a torque wrench to tighten, even with wheel nuts.

Secondly, impact wrenches need to be able to apply torque in either direction. Cars in particular still use lefty-tighty bolts for some applications. So how does it know the difference between 100Nm of a nut going on, and 320Nm of a nut coming off?

(PS, I'm still going to buy one... )

The only trouble is they arnt speed adjustable from what I can see. It gives it all in one go!
Armchair mechanics everywhere, this is not likely to be able to remove a tight lug nut/bolt.

I have a 70quid clarke one, comes in handy where little punch is needed, crank pulleys etc.
Pleased with mine. Till somebody got into my garage and nicked it ::PS if you would like to come back tonight about 8pm you can have the charger ( it's no good to me now ).

it says drill directly into concrete. could someone expand on that please
I have the Clarke one. Ok for very occasional. I thought I was occasional user and it lasted me 3 months.
The Brushes on the motor are very long and unsupported, when mine wore they twisted jammed and destroyed the motor and brush housing. It would have been fine if the brushes were supported and not left hanging in mid air. Apart from that it was a good bit of kit
To answer some of the above questions :-
I think Clarke quality is pretty pants these days (they use to be good) they just seem to be cheap Chinese quality products a bit like this product but at least the Lidl is half the price + 3 year warranty.

In my opinion the idea of an impact wrench like this is to give a hammer style action when trying to loosen tight/rusty nuts or bolts as with a ratchet wrench/toque bar you can only apply torque with no hammer the idea of the hammer action is to fracture/vibrate the friction of the parts ie this maybe rust or the friction between the two threads, hence hammer and torque combined makes light work of your stiff nuts or bolts.

As for wheel bearings they are usually difficult to remove the retaining nut/bolt due to the heat generated within the bearing over its life time of being on the car so refitting is easy 140Nm most torque wrenches are capable of this then a further 90 degree torque bar no problem I know I've done all 4 bearings on my Golf MK 4 in the last 12 months plus past cars I've owned, a piece of timber from your seat to your brake pedal to lock the brakes (just like they do when your car goes for MOT).

For use on concrete or wood definitely not these are not designed for this "use the correct tool" most drills for wood SDS for concrete/masonry.

As commented above never tighten with these they are not designed for this that's why we have torque wrenchs. oO

I've had a wired matika for a year.....great tool....no more charging batteries or expensive replacements. never understood cordless....far too expensive.
Just got mine this morning. Im changing suspension on my passat and so far all nuts coming off nice and easy with no problem at all.

Don't forget £5 off when you spend £40 or more - valid on 28th march only.

Have a nice day



Picked mine up earlier - gave it a quick test on a 125nm wheelnut and it came off with no problem.

Sounds like a silly test, but the 12v impact wrench I bought off eBay couldn't even shift that, and neither could my 160nm impact driver. So it looks to be the real deal.

Hammer is purely used internally to generate a large amount of torque only, it doesn't move in our out - en.wikipedia.org/wik…nch - imagine a ring spanner on a bolt, and hitting the end with a sledge hammer to turn it - all the kinetic energy in the hammer swing is suddenly sent via the spanner as a huge amount of torque, for a very short amount of time.

If i'd of known about that in advance I would've spent the extra tenner!

Also impressed that they opened at 8, and less than 40 minutes later you've gone down there, bought one, got home, got the tool out and started work with it!

less than 1min walk to Lidl, I was first there. Also i was working on the car already in my garage.

I've just finished changing the chain and sprockets on my motorbike.
Last weekend I was unable to get the front sprocket nut off with a breaker bar and 5 foot extension.
This thing got it off in two minutes.
cant drill wood and concrete
was none left at my local lidl on monday
****, forgot about these!
You stand little to no chance of getting one of these .i was told they sold out in less than hour on first day.
There are some park impact guns on e bay, so people are obviously buying them from lidl and selling them for profit on e bay.
