I use this impact at work, I love the silencer of the impact. Plus the speed is fantastic. Can't rave enough about this impact.

I bought this gun for the home. Not wanting to ruin my relationship with the neighbors, this gun does just that. My air compressor makes more noise than this gun does.

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. 8/10

I love this little impact, but beware people break bolts with it quickly. First time I let someone else use it they snapped off a 5/16 bolt on the hub of a semi axle... and it was set as low as it goes. It doesn't replace my 1200k, but 1/2" bolts(3/4"head) it's all you'll ever need.

This is the 3/8 gun to have, period. The only thing other 3/8 guns may have on this is smaller size but not by much if that. Im an oilfield, diesel mechanic and people in my shop bleed snap on and IR. I use this gun in most situations that everyone else in my shop would use their 1/2 gun...seriously. The only time I don't use it is when the bolt head is bigger than 1 inch. The times it can't remove a bolt are very very rare. Just a few days ago it took off 15/16 head bolts that had been put on by a 1/2 gun long ago. The bolt threads were caked up in dirt/grease and it still did it! If it can't take it off, my 1200k will, but I hardly use it for anything less than 1 1/16 because of this gun. The only thing I dislike about the gun is trying to feather the trigger because it's jumpy. Out of all of my impacts, this one easily gets used the most. If you want a gun that's smaller and lighter than a 1/2, but you need 1/2 power, I STRONGLY advise you to get this gun.

I bought this impact a couple days ago for working on over the road trucks. I am very satisfied, how well this tool performed. For the cost! you get your money's worth and then some. Highly recommended to have in your box.

Victor Rodriguez - 6/19/2013

Just purchased an AIRCAT Nitro 1355-XL. Very happy the product. It's light yet durable, very powerful and quieter than other impact guns that I've owned. Looking forward to trying out other products.

Don R - 5/2/2013

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

TX333 - 5/2/2013

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

Dieselsmoke1 - 8/26/2012

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!

Konstantin - 2/8/2012

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!

Brian Sharpe - 7/2/2011

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.
