I got this tool for christmas and I have used it on a few occasions but I DO NOT RECOMMEND TO USE IT TO PUT ON LUG NUTS. It has the power to break them loose but it will not put them back as tight as they were I found this out when I went to move my mini bike today and the rear tire moved sideways and I looked there were 3 out of the 4 nuts and they were all lose I then checked the front and I went over them with the impact then went back over them with a 1/2 in ratchet and got 3 1/2 turns tighter on them. Is this a great tool yes but it has its limits.

we use a craftsman 18 volt one for doing mower blades. we use it basically weekly, a mower per week. works great, always has. its a shame about the dewalt. i'd take my old ingresol air gun any day though
