Description
Super Clutch Twin Hammer Mechanism
Recommended for All-Around Automotive use and Tire removal

The TWIN HAMMER Mechanism consists of 2 hammers in a closed cage which rotates around the anvil. This design allows the hammer to hit at the same time on both sides of the anvil. A twin hammer design is very durable and particularly suitable for long operating cycles. A further advantage is that the design consists of few individual parts and this makes it very easy to service. The twin hammer is lubricated by grease. Lubrication can be easily done from outside via greasing fitting without opening the housing. The TWIN-Hammer design is best used for industrial, all-around automotive applications, tire service and assembly.


All the Power, Half the Noise! The AIRCAT tool line has a substantially reduced level of noise while retaining more power and torque. Our tools have been tested & shown to operate at 82-86 dBa (decibels), far below the OSHA guidelines. This feature benefits not only the mechanic but also the overall business. The patented tuned exhaust muffler technology, in all the tools, allows discharged air to pass without developing back pressure, thus retaining more power, while significantly reducing noise. AIRCAT has innovated through-the-handle exhaust design, which incorporates its revolutionary worldwide patented internal muffler/filter. The benefits include reduced hazards from breathing exhausted air particulates, the elimination of blow-by into the operators eyes and lungs as well as reduce noise. AIRCAT also incorporates a patented ergonomically engineered handle design to relieve stress and fatigue on the operators hands, wrists and arms. The patented AIRCAT handle offers better overall distribution of weight for a balanced tool and provides a unique grip that makes it easier to use for prolonged periods of time.

Glad I didn't waste my money on a more expensive model, as other reviewers stated, this is the only one you will need. If you can't get it off with this wrench then someone way over torqued the nut. Gone are the days of hand rotating tires, did a complete tire rotation on my car in 10 minutes and without the resulting back pain the next day.

I had a little trouble with one lug nut on my car, but cranked up the output PSI on my 20 gallon husky compressor and off it came. It is very quiet and I almost wish it were louder so that I would know for sure it was working hard, but did everything I need it for.

Seems to be pretty durable, heavy enough to seem sturdy, and the materials seem to be of high quality.

I OWNED 2 OTHER 1/2" IMPACT WRENCHES AND THE 2ND ONE FROM A LOCAL BOX STORE. I TRIED TO REMOVE A REAR BUMPER BOLT (FACTORY INSTALLED) AND FAILED. RESEARCHED AMAZON, AND FOUND THIS "AIRCAT" 1/2" COMPOSITE AND LIKED WHAT THE OWNERS HAD POSTED, BEING POWERFUL AND "REMOVING" BOLTS/NUTS EFFORTLESSLY. AFTER PURCHASING/RECEIVING IT FROM AMAZON, CONNECTED IT TO MY 26 GALLON ELECTRIC COMPRESSOR, I WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THESE "FROZEN LIKE" CAP BOLTS WITH THE FIRST TRIGGER PULL! WOW! REMOVED 4 CAP BOLTS IN A FEW MINUTES TIME.

I bought this gun after doing a lot of research and reading others reviews. I am a mechanic and use this multiple times a day. So far it has done the job well. Overall it has been great so far. Compared to my last cheap craftsman gun it is much better and is comparable to the ingersoll guns.

I work in a shop at a dealership and this impact is amazing. It's my first impact wrench and I couldn't be happier. This impact has out performed my coworkers matco,snap on and Mac tools impacts at half the price and is alot quieter. I am looking in to purchasing a 3/8 impact from air cat. This is a amazing company I just wish they were sold on tool trucks.

This Aircat replaced an IR 1/2" impact gun I had that could not even loosen a torqued lug nut. The Aircat zings them off like they weren't even torqued! It is so powerful and fast. I love this tool! The three range tightening torque settings are handy too, without it I'd be breaking bolts with the power this gun has on it's strongest setting. After getting this tool, I'd consider buying other Aircat products. This model is such a great tool.

This is one of the best tools, of the many, many, that I've ever bought. It is a half inch drive wrench that hits with a half ton of impact torque. Better yet all this torque and impact is adjustable so that your not whacking something unnecessarily hard when you don't need that kind of power. I'm very happy with the quality, feel and performance of this great little wrench. I've never owned an AirCat product before but am now a convert. I highly recommend this product and brand.

I have a small 20 gallon compressor and two inexpensive impact wrenches of which neither could remove the lug nuts from tires. I always figured it was the compressor. I tried this one and with a quick burst and because it is very quiet, I figured like the rest it didn't work. Well, it removed them without any effort. This is an awesome tool that worked great with a small, under powered compressor.

I am a professional mechanic and use this tool everyday. So far it has performed very well and is comparable to my boss' $450 IR. Definitely recommended. Breaks lug nuts loose with ease along with axle nuts and rusted on items.
