While strolling a Peddler's Mall today searching for a vintage wooden ladder for a Christmas gift (for a quilt rack) for my youngest Daughter, I found a great deal for myself.  I forgot to snap a pic, but here is one I pulled off Harbor Freight.  It's the exact one as mine.  3/4" heavy duty 1,000ft lbs of power.  Mine was brand new and I it was only $25!  Sale price is $98 at HF.  I put a fitting on it & just triggered it and it kicks my hand to the side, so it's got some juice.  I didn't actually put a socket on & remove a bolt or nut, but I'll do that tomorrow.  Always wanted a 3/4 as sometimes my 1/2" isn't quite got the stuff, and the 1" is so darned heavy.

And we also found the perfect vintage ladder for my Daughter!  :thumbs:

You will notice quite a difference from a 3/8 to 1/2 hose.They really need that extra volume to reach their full potential.

That's a good deal for $25! I like to have one! My son just told me that any HF tool with Pittsburg on it it guaranteed with free replacement!

I have two battery operated, 18 volt De Walt impacts.  One is a 1/2" and the other is 1/4" and use them both a lot.  Very seldom do I get the 1/2" air unit out when working on the tractors.  Don't know what I did without them as it sure saves the arthritic hands.

I also have a 1/2 and 1/4 Ridgid 18V cordless impacts I use all the time in my shop. Much handier, but I work on large tractors and
equipment where it takes much more power. But the cordless I couldn't get by without either.

Find my 1/2" cheapie tightens up good, but many times I need a Bar to break loose real tight stuff, the gun does not do OFF very good. Wonder if Chinese 3/4 is same? Let us know.   I always wondered if those electric impacts were any good, who has one? Not battery, but electric.

My 19.2 craftsman does a good job. Handy and powerful.
Bit of a battery hog tho, but i bet they all are.
be sure to get the extra capacity battery for whatever brand you are considering.

I have an old Thor electric 1/2" impact that I have have over 40 years and is still going strong.  Just use it on my cars and truck.

I use my 3/8" impact on the garden tractors.

Grumpy , I've got an old old Craftsman 110V electric impact that works good on GT lug nuts and removing mower blades for sharpening . It doesn't have quiet as much umph as my 1/2 air impact but works for most jobs .

 

I find it sometimes faster and quieter to get out a short extension cord and the electric impact , than waiting for my noisy air compressor to pump up.....LOL

I have an 18V Hitachi 1/4" drive impact. Does real good. So far I have broken the 1/4" to 3/8" socket adapter with it! Sure works great on the GT's.

I have a couple Ingersoll electric ones which I use a lot, don't have a heavy enough compressor to keep up with an air one.
