I own this and it's a really nice tool to have in your car/truck. It works unlike anything I've ever used. When you depress the button, the motor winds up for like five seconds and then all of a sudden it releases it's impact on the socket. It continues to wind itself up and then strike repeatedly until the lug loosens. It's not the most elegant way to go about things but it sure does work. This is a really good price too.

2 questions, out of curiosity:
1) When the lug is loose, does it switch to a more conventional operation, or continue with the wind-up mode?
2) About how long does it take to loosen (or remove) a lug? Just wondering if this is faster than doing it by hand, or just easier (which could certainly be worth $35 by itself).

Looks handy, but I get a flat tire so seldom that I rather just use the hand tools provided in the car and save trunk space the rest of 2-3 years that I don't have a flat

Once the lug is loose it just turns it like you'd expect but there's no "slow" speed. It pounds the lug loose and then blasts it off at max speed. I think that's bad for the threads so I kind of cycle the switch on and off a bit or just use my hand.

It only takes like three seconds for for it to "wind up" and then in my personal expericnec it takes 2-3 of these hits to loosen a lug. So what's that, maybe eight seconds for one tight lug nut.

It's not perfect but it does what it needs to do in an emergency and it seems pretty solid too.

Thank you - the summary was very helpful. I've got chronic joint problems, so I can change a tire with hand tools, but might get this for bad days.

I agree, I have this and a cheap 14.4v battery powered impact wrench. The battery one is rated at higher torque than this, but due to the unique way this runs (motor spinning up) it was able to loosen some lugs that the supposedly more powerful battery wrench couldn't.
