i have had this gun for about 2.5 years beating lug nuts on and off school busses. its a great gun with lots of power and your ears arent ringing at the end of the day from using it. my only complaint is that replacement parts cost. i broke the anvil, it was more cost effective to just order a new gun.

I had Snap-Ons biggest baddest impact gun for about 15 years,it was durable but heavy and never had the power they bragged it to have.Finally it was getting tired so I researched the strongest 1/2 gun on the market and found this one.When I got it at first I thought it was weak because it turns slower than most impact guns and is only about 1/2 the noise level,but then I realized it just keeps turning,no matter how hard the bolt or nut is on there it just keeps going.I like the fact it’s not as fast as most guns either because the fasteners don’t go flying when they come off like other guns.Great gun at less than half the Price,after 35 years of being a professional auto mechanic I have never seen a gun that will touch the power of this one.Just ordered 3 more Aircat tools,will see how they do as well.

I'm a Toyota Technician in NY and of course, I use this I have this gun for 2 years now and it never let me down. My Snap On dealer told me it's a lot stronger than Snap On 1/2 impact itself, a lot lighter, a lot quieter and a lot cheaper. He was right. Snap On is front heavy and overtime, it feels uncomfortable. The NitroCat 1250K however, feels like it's 50-50 weight distributed from the grip itself. The design of the grip feels comfortable and it fits right in on my hand. It had to be. You need that tight grip on it when the nut/bolt locks. NY is notorious for rust so some bolts seize. They needed to be replaced but first, they needed to be taken off. Not a problem with this gun. It screams like an angry leopard/cheetah/jaguar and hits hard that sounds like firing an uzi. I don't regret buying it. Only 4 stars because they discontinued the protective skin for it like what the Snap On guns have. Mac version doesn't fit.

This tool started my Air Cat addiction! Quiet compared to other major brands off the truck and OF COURSE CHEAPER! I am a HD Diesel Mechanic by trade in NY which is part of the rust belt. My current IR AND SO impacts we're getting tired. I was getting difficult to remove and adjust U-Bolts and Shocks. I did some shopping around and came across this brand. I was skeptical at first but for the price and warranty it was worth a gamble. Well I hit it big with this purchase! I also purchased the protective boot as well! The money I saved compared to shelling out for big brand I updated my other tools to Air Cat and couldn't be happier! PLEASE BUY WITH CONFIDENCE!
