Serious shit dude! What's the advantage over a hand-held one - More force?

And speed. A little over 3000 pounds of pressure and it does the job in about a second. With the right dies, I can handle up to 0 gauge wire.

Nice - I guess when you start doing volume and larger gauges it takes it's toll on the hands. I started my working life as a field service telephone engineer and there were days when we'd crimp between 100 and 500 RJ11/RJ45 and or BNC connectors a day. I used to be able to crush a brick with one hand after doing that for a year.

You are going to love that setup. They can handle a beating. The charge indicators on the batteries are nice so you know if you have a full charge before you get too far away. Great tool overall.

Yes, I have the Makita version and it has changed the way I work (for the better!). When you can buzz off 10-15 clutch cover bolts in a few moments you end up getting a lot more done a lot quicker.

Cordless impacts are the bomb! 8) I have the new 20V DeWalt 1/4" driver and I use it every time I wrench on my bike. Makes assembly and disassembly so much faster and easier. Just be careful using it to install bolts into aluminum threads like engine cases. On sensitive stuff like that I will use the impact to run the bolt in but torque the bolts by hand.

Everyone should have one! Does it run?

It does now. Soda blasted the carb, o-rings from Mike Nixon, put the ignition timing back to baseline (previous dude had it all effed up) and she fired right up. Drove around the yard with the Motion Pro temporary fuel tank hanging off the handle bars and went through the gears. She's a keeper. :)

That's exactly what I do - my Makita has a variable speed trigger, so I can run the bolts in till they are just snug and then torque them to spec. After I broke the head off a 3/8" lag bolt driving it into wood with the impact, I have much more respect for its power. On car lug nuts I just wail on them, as it doesn't seem to develop the 90-100 ft-lbs specced. Pretty close though!

Yeah the variable speed trigger is awesome! It also has 3 different modes that are something along the lines of 0-800lb-in 0-1,600lb-in and 0-2,400lb-in. Start low, and if it doesn't work, kick it up a notch 8)

I have wanted one for MONTHS, but couldn't justify buying one. So I just waited for my birthday and told my GF about it ;D



Only problem is the batteries are fucking EXPENSIVE! I opted for a bigger battery, and it cost almost the same as the unit itself! :eek:
