With this Husky 1/2 in. Air Impact Wrench, you can adjust the power to any of 6 levels and benefit from a maximum of 550 ft.-lb. of torque. This pneumatic impact wrench can deliver 800 ipm, enough for many jobs. The housing is made of light but strong aluminum. Flip a switch to change from forward to reverse and back again.
I bought this as an upgrade from my old Craftsmn impact gun. I set my compressor to 90 psi. plugged the gun in and what do ya know ..It starts pissng air out of the oil holes in the handle before I even got to pull the trigger, also leaked from back seal. Brand new in a factory sealed plastic case, in a box and shrink wrapping on the outside of the box.. Which obviously tells me it wasn't used and brought back.. I will never buy a Husk tool again...Going back to seas to buy a real tool, my old craftsm is 12 years old and still works great , but I was looking for a lttle more torque than I have right now. The spelling errors are due to the fact that you cannot write a reveiw that contains certain words,, I think anyone with a brain gets the picture........T.B.
Looks and feels like a quality tool. 550 ft.lb. torque ? I doubt it. When using tool it would stop and just blow air out exhaust . Yes I oiled the tool and have a large compressor so that wasn't an issue. Socket retaining ring jammed , literally had to pry socket off with pry bar. Not what I expect from a $100 tool. Returned the day after I bought it.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought this product today. The air leak mentioned by someone else had to be a problem with that unit only. No. Mine also has that leak. I'll return it and then look at better known brands for more $$$.
