I love mine. Just make sure you keep the extension cord as short as possible so you don't lose the amps running to it.

Awsome! I figured the first responce would be asking me why I was a dumb shit for buying a electric impact. How does it compair to a air impact?

Air impacts will cost you at least $150 for a decent one, mine was about $350.

So if it works ok then why not.

Garage door installers used to use those, probably use the cordless ones now.

Keep a breaker bar handy, you will still need it to bust some bolts free.

I just got a Dewalt cordless that is rated at 140ft/lb torque. I used it for the first time last week and on my lugs that were speced at 100 ft/lb it had to work to get them off. Granted I was using 18mm socket on a say 3 inch long gorilla lug adapter, and the batteries were cold. I did have to break 4 of 10 with a breaker bar, other than that Electric is the cats ass for those of us who dont have the ability to run a nice air set up.

I have an older black and decker (from my dad) circa 1980. 110v corded. It works better than both my works air impact and the air impact I have at home, however both aren't expensive models. I love mine, never had something it didn't remove (except something stuck in rubber, which no impact likes). I have no desire for an air impact after using mine.

It should, they are not that bad. I have taken mine off with a 1/2" ratchet and socket. You should be fine with the impact.
