Default I need electric impact wrench refferals

I have struggled with unruly nuts and bolts for the last time. THE LAST TIME!! My dad won't get an air compressor for his shop, so I'm stuck with electricity. I was googling around, and became somewhat lost in the selection. Hog ring anvis vs. detent pin anvil, and all the different makes! I work on vehicles often, and I estimate I would need it around two to three times a month at least, so I'd rather not buy the Harbor Freight special. However, I would prefer to keep the cost around $150. Anyone with a preference?

The main brand I was looking at is Dewalt. There are two models of 1/2" drive wrenches with different anvil designs (hog ring or detent pin). What is what? Thanks!!

I know the detent pin is like a ratchet where you have to press the button to get the socket off. I think the hog ring doesnt have that its just a push on and use deal but I could be wrong.

Snap on is great if you have the money to buy the stuff I get 25% off from them but I already have pretty much everything ill ever need But I still find it way cheaper to buy craftsman

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.

I think corded would be the best for right now. I want cheap quality with lots of power (Don't we all?). So you say Milwaukee?

you can't go wrong with milwaukee or dewalt but check that you have enough torque to take tough bolts or lugs off i would recommend 550lb of breakaway force as a minimum

i would definitely recomend ether of the 2 and i highly agree with the torque because anything smaller and you'll end up wearing it down faster with the tougher bolts.
