Great power, great time saver
I mostly use this on automotive work. Removing lug nuts and suspension service. It sees some occasional engine work but I also have a lower torque 3/8" impact for that. This is a huge time saver and hand saver and I love it! To me the only drawback is setting #1 is about 20 ftlbs which is pretty weak compared to #2 and #3.
Before the 1/2" Mid-Torque was available, I was really on the fence about getting the 1/2" High-Torque because it would have been too much power for most my work. Without a doubt it was worth the wait, the 1/2" Mid-Torque is an excellent complement automotive servicing.

Awesome tool with plenty of power
this impact has more then enough power to break loose the rustiest of nuts and bolts wich is especially helpful up here in the northeast where everything is rusted.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
