I should have bought one!
Sold some of the crap out of the garage so really its free?
All of mine are IR - 3/8 1/2 3/4 - a few of them are nearing 20years old I would think as well.
I also have "the beast" - a Campbell Hausfeld short reach #5 spline drive. Bought it off a retiring Railway Engine fitter - with a full set of metric spline drive shallow/deep sockets plus some 1" adapter/extensions.
Air tools - being fed with dry/filtered/oiled air do last a long while.
cant beat my 1/2" ingersol impact and they are cheap second hand
That's the one I got
Isn’t, the bare unit, no battery
I just bought a new IR 1/2" air impact wrench's - IR 2235timax - paid about £240 with a boot for mine.
My Russian fitter always buys AIRCAT 1150 1/2" ones at about £120 in the sale - very powerfull gun but they don't last like an IR
They look good but I have no batteries to fit
Totally agree, with old lorries the battery ones dont touch them despite the claims, a good 1" CP air unit always fetches them off and without breaking sweat.
Oooops, my bad
I don't often use a big airgun - I only do cars and vans mostly.
Crankshaft bolts - is where I normally end up using a big gun.
What really makes a difference with 3/4 and 1" airguns is feeding them up with a full bore 1/2 ID air hose thru 100series PCL fittings.
I use 16mm pipe with Schrader fittings as they flow more air than PCL so air isn't an issue, only use PCL on the clean air side for plasmas or sprayguns.
I use 1/4 PCL bayonet fittings and 8mm ID hose for everything.
With the exception of 3/4 an 1" impact guns - where I use 100series PCL and 13mm ID hose.
I have thought about swapping out from 1/4 PCL bayonet fittings to the HF Prevost XF type - but I have so many on everything/everywhere - it will be just such a huge task.
I split my airlines years ago and have a lubricated side with an oil injector fitted, this feeds any tools requiring lubrication and is fitted with Schrader, the other side is the clean air side which has an air dryer and no lubrication using PCL with 8mm hose, this way you cannot connect to the wrong line as some people try and do, one idiot connected his spraygun to the lubricated line and ended up with paint full of oil mist, laugh, I nearly pi**ed myself as both sides are colour coded and he removed a PCL and fitted a Schrader.
I don't do any spraying - if I did I would need some new hoses - all mine are dripping in oil.
To be honest I don't have a dry outlet without oil with a quick fit fiting on it.
The only non oiled air we use if for tyre inflators and these are hard piped into the hoses (I done this years ago as the lads kept using non oiled air hoses with my air tools).
The "Parkside Cordless Vehicle Impact Wrench" ( PASSK 20 Li A1 ) is not in Lidl shops now, but is available from resellers:
It uses the standard "20v Team" Parkside batteries. The original in-store Lidl price was £69.99 with one 4AH battery & charger.
@winchman I have both the Milwaukee M18 and M12 torque guns. The M18 is a beast of a tool and hasn’t been beaten yet, regardless of how big and tight the bolt is. The M12 is used most often though and easily does car wheel nuts. Due to its compact size it really is versatile and with 4 settings it can be used for most things.
BTW I normally use a 6ah battery on the M12 but it will work fine on 2amp batteries too but use them up quicker
Do you have the 3/8 version?
For workshop use I am still using air nut guns and haven't yet seen any reason to change.I recently bought a cheap cordless to throw in the truck
This one wouldn't undo the wheel nuts on my van, in fairness they were kin tight so I backed them off with a breaker bar and re tightened them, it could then undo them. I used Eds 18v Milwaukee a few weeks ago which is a bit of a beast but found it a bit big and heavy for what it does.
no the 1/2 inch. Didn’t see the point in two sets of impact sockets and anything under a 8mm head probably won’t last long under even low settings. I know the 3/8 sockets are a little shorter but not much.
