The NITROCAT 1355-XL is a no non-sense, hard hitting 3/8" impact wrench that incorporates the Twin Hammer mechanism. With an industry leading 700 (ft-lbs) of Loosening Torque and 1,750 Blows Per Minute, the 1355-XL will give you all the torque you need and tremendous speed to get the job done.
The TWIN HAMMER Mechanism consists of 2 hammers in a closed cage which rotates around the anvil. This design allows the hammer to hit at the same time on both sides of the anvil. A twin hammer design is very durable and particularly suitable for long operating cycles. A further advantage is that the design consists of few individual parts and this makes it very easy to service. The twin hammer is lubricated by grease. Lubrication can be easily done from outside via greasing fitting without opening the housing. The TWIN-Hammer design is best used for industrial, all-around automotive applications, tire service and assembly.

I bought this impact gun a few months ago and am very satisfied. Powerful. Quiet. Lightweight. Comfortable. Inexpensive.
I mean 500 ft-lbs! What else can you want from a 3/8" gun? I've used it on lugs, axles, calipers, and stripped a few little bolts. Ha ha. ;)
Great job once again!

I bought this impact along with the 1150 aircat,this nitro cat really impressed me its very powerful to be a 3/8 impact,i pulled a ford f350 transmission with it last week,which i normally have to use 1/2 in drive impact,its a sweet deal for the money

Not gonna lie, I went into buying this impact with high hopes. I own/have owned 3/8" impacts from a couple major top name manufacturers and know that opinions vary from person to person. It is easy to get caught up in all the hype.
Personally, I love this impact!!! Great ergonomic pistol grip. Easily adjustable selector, even with slightly bulky gloves this shouldn't be a hassle. Is quieter than most 3/8" guns. Seems to be of quality build and from a reputable company. Most of all, this lil baby is a BEAST! It has some real cajones!! Haven't had a bolt yet I couldn't spin off. Even able to instantly pop lugs off my Jeep after my buddy used his no-name 1/2" to tighten em. He was in disbelief and impressed all at the same time. He doesn't understand why such a small composite gun makes his giant aluminum one look like such a punk. This is also the kind of person that believes cheaper is always better. Get what you pay for and I'm thoroughly impressed

I wanted a higher powered gun to replace my I/R super duty. I've been very happy with my other Aircat products and they've got another winner in their line-up.
Over twice the torque, light weight and comfortable in my hand, and very quiet.
It's everything I wanted and a good value compared to what the competition offered.
I own Aircats in three different drive sizes, and they have all become my go to guns for all I do.

Best purchase in years - This has just become my most favorite tool. Its lightweight & very nimble. Its small body size makes tight spots an non issue. Its power for a 3/8" Impact is nothing short of amazing. Very highly rated. Its low cost is any even larger plus. I have not had it for long, so durability is still to be determined, but based on its performace this far, I would bet with good care, that it will last a long time. P.S. I also have the Nitro 1200K and it is equally as impressive!

This is a great impact, blows all my ingersol guns out of the water. These things like oil daily.. If you don't oil it it will feel super weak. Can take lug nuts off a 5.7 Tundra without batting an eye. A+++ Will soon be getting the 1/2". You won't be disappointed. It is slightly longer than my 2112.
