Default Need an impact wrench?

So I was browsing for a cordless impact wrench, and this bad boy came up.

Sadly enough I believe the 39.5 lb heft might discourage use. :(

For when you absolutely,positively have to zip the fastener out and clear across the yard: 406 to 1250 ft lbs of torque.

http://www.mytoolstore.com/ir/ir8056.html I acquired a nice 1” IR 8056 electric impact wrench my first year over here. I would have shipped it home, But I felt sorry for my coworkers, and left it there when i came home.

hot damn I'd hate to mistakenly leave that in the forward direction, you'd break anything before you fully pressed the trigger
