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?

We have a milwaukee one at work for being electric it works pretty good im not sure of the model ill have to look wed when I go in only other thing I know is its a half inch. I know dewalt makes one too but not sure what the cons and pros are for it.
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.
