I would like to know what impact tool everyone is using to change blades when out in the field. I had one break and lost the rest of the day having to go back to the shop.

Thanks, Steve

Impact, in the field? How do you break a blade anyway?

I use a ratchet to take them off and a torque wrench to put them back on.

In the field, just regular tools, make sure to have an equalizer someplace.

Snap-On 1/2" cordless impact. Best you can buy. Will break loose almost anything!

A box end wrench and a dead blow hammer.

this. if you'rre doing it often, maybe pick up a 'striking wrench'
