Default Impact Wrench

Im tired of doing everything with elbow grease and leverage. So, im looking into buying a good impact. Im looking at the Ingersoll-Rand 2135QTIMAX 1/2 drive, it seems like from the reviews its a solid tool and decently quiet. I am wondering if its worth spending the extra money on the Pin style anvil or if it is more of a pain in the ass than it is worth to take the socket it off and should just stick with the standard anvil.

Haven't seen that with a pin type retention, just the standard clip. It's a stellar gun, Got one several years ago. Thing has nuts. Finally replaced it a few months ago with another one.

Are you running the the standard 2135timax or the quiet? If the quiet does it still keep all its power of the standard 2135timax as advertised?

we have a few pin style at work. they are fine if you have one socket with one job. they suck if you are busy and have to change regular since you have to use a pick of awl to release the socket every time

thanks for the input, any suggestions on an air filter or lubricator. I wanna make sure im protecting my investment here and there are so many options for setups im not sure what to go with. I defiently want to filter out the water, if its better to just add drops of oil into the tool before use ill just stick with that but if its worth while for an inline lubricator im all ears on recommendations

I just use the marvel mystery oil in mine. A few drops every day and it will last a long time.

I bought my titanium at sears and got a replacement warranty for like 30 bucks extra, worth it if you use it daily.

We have about 5 ti-max's (the unsilenced ones) at work with just the friction ring ends they work awesome... I never have any problems with them holding sockets. I would buy one for myself.

2135 is one of the best guns out there. I have one as well as almost all the techs I know. Its just plain kicks ass!

Only diff with the "quite" one is a chunk of scotch brite sponge shit in the exhaust port.

Also be aware that IR sell to others so it is rebadged. Mac, Matco, Cornwell, and maybe more.

I snagged mine in Mac colors near new with a new boot for just over 100 on ebay.

I have this one:

And it works really well and has enough balls to do everything I've asked it too. My next door neighbor has the IR2130 and his is quite a bit quieter than mine though.

This^^^^

We all switched to "quiet" guns a few years ago, never really noticed how nice it was till one of the other techs had to use his old 434B impact, that thing is fing loud. Love my quiet impacts.

thanks for all the responses i went ahead an ordered the 2135QTIMAX last night, it supposed to be here on weds. I can't wait to try it out? Do you guys run any kind of inline filtration to keep the water down?

We run a water remover.. some water still gets past mainly because of the volume of the lines we have and the heating and chilling of them, but oil the gun, drain your compressor regularly and you would be fine for private use

dont bother with an inline oiler, the oil will eventually deteriate the hose. Also, blowing oil through the gun constantly is a waste of oil, as is oiling it before use. You should oil it after use, before putting it away, so it doesnt sit overnight or for a few days with moisture in it sitting on bare metal. Store it with the internals coated with oil.

ok thanks, i was leaning towards just getting the filter to keep the moisture down. I didnt know about the oil eating away at the line over time so thats good to know.
