    Looking for a cordless impact wrench what do you guys

    Recommend ! I have about £150 and could do with one that has a high torque...i know that the snap on ones are great but are out of my league at the mo...What do you guys have in impact wrenches and whats your experiance with them when it comes to bolts that won't shift like the bloody crank bolt i could not undo to do my service a back street garage took it off in less than 10 secs with his air gun...Would really prefer a cordless to be honest...

    Cheers guys..

    p.s it's just fo diy stuff on the car.

    I got a cheapy - paid £50 for it a few years back

    came with 2 batts and 1hr charge - Rolson branded 1/2" 24v

    does exactly what it says on the tin and used it countless times as local members will tell u when theyve needed it

    i only bought it to shift a fubar locking wheel bolt all those years ago.....its been priceless ever since


    quite a bit pricier now - but still sub £100

    andy how does your snap-on wrench handle crank pulley bolts and wheel bolts?

    i've asked my snap-on dealer many times for a trial but he never has any used one's he can let me try for a week.

    sounds good. i could be tempted but the price of a snap-on over other makes is nearly always double
