Well, I really don't know what to tell you Mick. Guess you will have to find what ever you can that fits your budget. I don't mind saying my mouse finger was quivering while looking at the add to cart logo on that one.

Haaaaaaaaa! Its ok, he's got 8 more! I just bought it! Before I read your post I might add!

Thanks heaps for your thoughts etc.
Now, what do you know about air compressors? lol

Seriously, I spent all day looking for a good Impact at a good price! Couldnt find a single one that was anywhere near that one. Even with the currency exchange and postage Im way ahead.
Im pretty happy now!

Thanks again!

What is your capacity in air flow and tank volume of the compressor you use?
In the states, we have 110Vac and 220Vac @ 60Hz. If you have the equivalent power source across the big pond, then a two horse minimum compressor motor will do. My electric, that I use most for impact wrench, tire inflation, etc, is three horse . I use a ten horse Kohler driven b1tch for light duty sand blasting, Blowing off my equipment after use, etc.

Its just a cheap 2.5hp/40liter tank, it didnt come with spec's so not sure of the flow. I will look at upgrading some time in the future but it should be enough to take off a couple of bolts even if it means waiting a couple of seconds between shots.

Yeah.....That will get old quick, I had a 3 hp 110v with 20 gal tank that didn't last long. I got tired of waiting on it to build back up. Now I have a BIG V twin 220v with a 80 gal. tank, It doesn't even know it when I use my sandblaster.

Does the compressor spin up pretty fast?
I have seen a few 110Vac dogs that just chug along. As long as yours comes on fast and furious, your air volume should be OK.

Fast and furious! A couple of min's to charge.
I also need to replace the hose fittings. I bought a cheap, recoil set up when I got the compressor and there are leaks everywhere.
NEVER buy cheap rubbish!
