Default Product Review: $20 12V Impact Wrench

So I was lazy awhile ago and knew I needed rear pads added. I called a shop just to get an estimate and they wanted 120 bucks. So I ordered a cigarette lighter 12V impact wrench (12 ft cord) because I'm lazy like that. After much research and I found this bad boy:

Item #: 92349-1VGA

With shipping my order was a whopping 27 dollars. The same setup costs 60 bucks on ebay. As someone who had previously hand removed lugs, I think I am in love. I managed to knock out my rear brakes in about 20 minutes with this and would recommend it to anyone who does not have one.

Will it break the lugs free at 80 ft/lbs? My 18V cordless won't, but still helps save time.

Nice find, never knew such a thing existed.

"Delivers up to 150 ft. lbs. of torque to power off lug nuts."

I dont know.. I know my wheels were last air gunned on by Firestone when I got new tires put on and it had no sweat popping them off.

Mine only lasted 1/2 of an autocross season. That was about 10 years ago, maybe the quality has improved.
