I have not tried the IR Titanium but have heard good things about it. As with the other posters, do not mess around with the Harbor Freight, Campbell Hausfield, or other discount brands--they just aren't worth it.
Isin't Chicago Pneumatic the same supplier as HF? at my auto shop class, all the impact guns are IR's. at my house, we have a Dayton 1" drive that is rated for 750 Ft/ lbs, we use adapters.
