    24v impact wrench

    anyone on here uses a 24V impact wrench ?

    just thinking for home use will make it quicker for getting wheel nuts and bolts off. saves buying little compressor, air lines and air wrench

    if so what you using ?

    used my mates cheaper Rolson battery impact wrench the other night, was pretty impressed.

    i'm looking at the Sealey CP2450 which claims 550NM

    Make sure you get a decent one. I got a cheapo thing from Woolworths that worked off the 12v system via ciggy lighter. Was absolutely useless.

    I've got a 24v Cordless Impact Wrench.

    This one.

    Clarke CIR24 - 24V Cordless Impact Wrench - Machine Mart

    Very hany for undoing bolts and suspension parts outside the house. Got to admit that it's still lacks a bit of oomph compared to a compressed air one, but it's effective. Battery life is ok, but the one I got came with 2 batts, so I've never ran out of power yet!

    Do you have access to power? I've been tempted by one of the 240v Clarke ones and it's relatively cheap too: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Clarke-CEW10.../dp/B0039BQRUO

    Yes it would struggle with tight bolts, I always use the cordless impact wrench to tighten the bolts, then torque them up afterwoods. When taking them back off, the impact off it sometimes can shake them off, but not always, so you will need a breaker bar handy to be honest. It still speeds the job up, as you just loosen them and use the wrench!
