it all depends on the the torque really. i used a powermate that had 400ft-lbs of torque and it couldn't get the crank pulley off my honda. it ended up burning out after the 3rd day of use. i used another one that had the same torque and it popped the bolts off the bed of my truck right away. for the car i bought a Milwaukee(native for me) that had 600ft-lbs of torque(got on discount through a relative who worked there) and it took it right off.
for what your going to be using it for, you'll want to get a higher end one.
