Ingersoll Rand Max. Impact Ratchet.

Hey, if you use air tools and don't have one of these yet, GET ONE! These are the best thing since sliced bread. I had an ingersol Rand impact ratchet years ago but it wasn't much. This is a true, 180 ft. lb., reactionless (doesnt' hurt your hands) impact tool that looks like an air ratchet. It does NOT work like an air ratchet. It is an impact wrench that gets into tight spaces. My kids got me one for Christmas and the first time I used it on a simple timing chain job is about made me wet my pants. Sweeeeet. Its a bit heavier than a 3/8 air ratchet but not that bad. Mines 3/8 drive and I know they make a 1/2 inch drive but I don't know about 1/4" drive. If they have the 1/4, well..... my birthdays comin up soon. My hands are full of arthritis and this thing makes a few annoying jobs much more tolerable. I love my Snap-On air ratchets but they sure hurt my hands. Thought I'd pass it on. Tom.
