    Default TOOL Review: 1/2" Goodyear 24v cordless impact wrench

    I picked this up about a month ago to make the task of swapping wheels at my race a little easier. I got it at pep boys for $100 w/ a $20 mail in rebate. For the money, I figured it was worth a shot. Besides I can always return it if it sucked. But, I love this thing and use it at every chance I get. And with my line of work, I use it A LOT! I highly recommend this thing for anyone that wants a kick ass cheap cordless gun!

    Its a half inch, 24v cordless impact. The tool comes in a injection-molded case which stores the wrench, battery charger, 5" 1/2 drive extension, 19mm, 21mm, 13/16" & 3/4" impact sockets.
    Specs are as follows:
    MAX TORQUE: 170 FT/LBS
    2700 IMPACTS/MIN
    2200 RPM
    1900mAh BATTERY.

    Thanks! I'm was planning on finding a cordless impact tomorrow, cos after one rallycross of doing it, I can say.. changing wheels using a wrench gets really old really fast. And it comes with 19mm and 21mm which is exactly what I need. Cool.

    damn 100 dollars... thats alot better then the craftsman one for 300 or snap-on one for 500. I wonder if pepboys has extended warranties... so you can return when it/if it breaks... which is what i like about the craftsman and snap-on one.

    I saw this in the Pep boys add and have been debating it for a while. I might just have to pick one up on my way to JV.

    I had issues with my first one. The damn locking clip on the 1/2" drive broke and made it a royal pain in the ass to get a socket off. I returned it, got a new one and have had ZERO problems with it. It gets better with age as well. (It takes a few charging cycles to get it to its full potential)

    well even if you have to buy a new one twice (3 total) you've still then paid the amount you would for a craftsman

    I just got back from Pep Boys - you can buy a spare battery for $40. Unfortunately for me, whilst they had the batteries, they did not have the tool itself. All they had was a corded Kawasaki and a dinky 12v-powered noname type thing. I'll go and check the other local PB in a bit.. if not, Harbor Freight here I come

    The other local Pep Boys (for OC locals, Katella in Orange, next to the strip club) had loads.. I got one, and one of those cool aluminium racing jacks too. My wallet hurt afterwards but the tools are freaking awesome, I feel like a real pro now
