Very(!) brief Popular Mechanics summary:

http://www.popularmechanics.com/h...wrenches/?


This is a handy tool for basic mechanic work. It's rated higher than the standard C3 driver, and should be good for most (emphasis on most) basic needs like spinning off lug nuts.

A lot of people probably have a lot of SYWR points from previous Craftsman deals to use!

Great battery impact wrench, makes removing lug nuts a joke. Totally worth the $130 I paid for it at xmas (minus 15% gc thru SD, double 6% CB on gc/actual purchase, 10% points back for leaving it in my cart for a day and getting an email promo) easily worth $150 with no discounts, but 10yrs of slickdeals prevents a simple $30 savings or so...but I digress

That being said, use a torque wrench to put them back on, otherwise you'll be about 200-300% overtorqued. Typical torque specs are usually about 70-90ft/lbs (take this advice from someone who owns thia model)

Thanks OP, had some promo that said "get back points when using your points". After points and $15 off $150 I paid $118 and got back $31 in points.

Good tips. These have enough power you can warp an aluminum wheel if over torqued, or possibly even shear off a lug bolt depending on the car and it's bolt diameter/quality/condition/etc. It's also possible you could screw up the threading if you don't have the nut threaded on completely straight before hitting it with an impact.

I always hand spin them on first...for final tightening, a torque wrench is best.

* I actually bought the Ridgid at Home Depot a couple months back for the free lifetime warranty and battery replacements, but this is a solid deal on a great tool for those that need one now...especially if you've already invested in the C3 lineup.

the battery has $50+ sywr points..buying drill & battery seperate is $5 more expensive, but youll get over $65+ in sywr points. $140 with $65 in points sounds better then $135 & $15 in points

Did you buy the batteries separate or was this a impact wrench kit?

I bought the Ridgid gen5x hammer drill+ impact driver kit about 4 months ago. I've used the impact driver with socket adapters on the lug nuts on my car. It takes them off with no issue. I haven't tried it on anything seized on, or larger fasteners yet.

I tried this one out. For lug nuts it is just fine, but anything bigger or any rust, it's a no go. Just get one of the larger ones with multiple power settings if one is worried about over tightening. This Sears one is also exactly the same as the rigid

This impact wrench isn't available separate. There is a "tool only" impact wrench for sale which has less tq and less features. (belt clip, LED lights)
It seems the "Heavy Duty" one only comes in the kit.

It should be noted that this Impact Wrench kit comes with the high end C3 Charger. Not the cheaper C3 Charger found in most C3 products.

http://www.sears.com/craftsman-c3...ockType=G1

This is a great tool and a great value at this price. When I added this Wrench and 4ah XCP battery to my C3 line up to total changed the way I viewed my Craftsman C3 tools.

I was very close to dumping the C3 line for Dewalt. I had the old C3 1/2" Impact Wrench using standard 2.6ah high capacity lithium ion batteries and it left a lot to be desired. Most of my C3 tools felt like they needed just a little more power and should last longer..

I did a bunch of research and as a last ditch effort I decided to buy this kit for the upgraded Impact wrench but more importantly, the 4ah XCP battery. I'm glad I did! Every tool runs stronger with the XCP batteries.

I have since sold all my standard lithium Ion batteries and upgraded several of my old C3 tools for the newer Heavy Duty versions. I got the 3 speed Impact Driver, the brushless drill driver, the 6 1/2" circular saw, etc. I couldn't be happier.

And using slickdeals I was able to get good deals on all those items!

The problem with C3 is that you can get so far invested into C3's because they have such a variety of products... that you can never get out. It's like a bad relationship. They have angle grinders, air pumps and... vacuums? that all use the same batteries. And that's how they getcha.

Great tool. Picked one up last month at the same price (without the extra points) then picked up a couple more 4ah batteries when they had the battery promo going on. I replaced my old 20V craftsman impact that the battery died on me (and that they don't sell anymore). Battery lasts a long time and it doesn't have any issues removing lug nuts from my race car or my wife's SUV. Haven't tried it on my truck yet, but that will be interesting to see. The torque spec on them is 125lb-ft so it'll be interesting to see if it can handle it.
