FWIW the Harbor Freight 1/2" Earthquake is only $75 after the 20% coupon, personally I wouldn't waste my money on a "Husky" impact. Probably the only there on there worth a damn is the die grinder but it's still too expensive even "on clearance".

To each their own. Personally I would be hard pressed to choose a Harbor Freight tool over a reputable name-brand. Among the reasons: 90 day warranty on the Harbor Freight Earthquake, 2 year warranty any of the Husky impacts...

Of the Husky tools listed, I got the 1/2" 650 ft lb impact, the 3/8" impact, and the air hammer. Personally I feel that these are quality items at these prices, and am happy with my purchases.

I owned a 2135timax (rated 1100 ft-lbs IIRC) and an Aircat 1100k and the HF Earthquake smoked both of them. For half the cost (or more). Warranty doesn't mean crap, Home Depot is discontinuing those models anyway! HF's warranty has been 90 days on everything they sell, yes some is crap but if you are smart you'll know where to find the better stuff. "Husky" reputable brand! LOL! Now I think I've heard everything!

We clearly have different opinions/requirements for our tools. However despite your personal feelings toward the Husky brand, this is still a deal.

Perhaps you can start another thread about the HF impact deal rather than promote it here. Let me know when you do so I can post a "thank you for sharing".

The HF impact has been taken apart and compared to the IR. It's a blatant ripoff copy of a great tool. In this case the HF tool is the better impact. It is a much talked about item on various forums.

I generally like branded items over HF, but in this case I would get the HF tool. The one thing to note is the grease used. IR uses a "vastly" better grease. You get better performance if you tear it down and re-grease it. The same can be said across the board for HF tools/motors. The grease is crap. vomit

Many of the HF air tools are really good tools for the price. I do not say that about all of HF tools. Some of their tools are 100% junk but they do have a few diamonds in the ruff.

Is it MUUUCHH better or just a little better? In the comparison

Don't forget the Husky one cost me $60 still cheaper than HF even w/ coupon.

Also the Husky uses less air which is good if u don't have a giant compressor.

All depends on how much you will use it and if you have the muscle for when it fails. Average diy Husky is good enough. Most engine bolts etc. the Husky will do just fine. Large frame bolts not so much.

The Husky would match up with this one [harborfreight.com]. The control dial is a pita on this HF model though. I would buy the Husky in that pairing, but the Central Pneumatic Earthquake is just on another level entirely.

I would love to get one, but the additional cost of upgrade the compressor to handle the Earthquake requirement of 6 cfm LMAO my pancake 3.5 gallon of 2 cfm Embarrassment
