    This one of those tools I have done without. When I need to take a flywheel off an engine I drop by the dealer. I am wondering if this Harbor Freight product would work?

    How is different from my impact wrench? And will I need a head on this? Do these specs tell you anything about its hammer capability.

    If yer lookin' for a quality tool, that will "git er done" then go with this unit from IR : http://www.ingersollrandproducts.co...pactools/3-8-drive/2115timax-series/2115timax
    And fer today, and today only..... it's only 19.95! A steal at twice the price!
    Guaranteed not to nick, chip, crack, peel, rust bust, or collect dust!
    2 1/2 lbs of brute force!
    My 1/2" is relegated to the bottom of the drawer anymore.

    Get that one from Harbour Freight. For your little usage, it will last a long time. I use my little cheap one a few times per week and it is holding up fine. just a drop of oil every week and it keeps going and going. I think it is a good investment.

    My unit is "assembled in USA", prolly using Pakistani parts!
    But who cares, All I know is that its a bad a$$ impact. It can handle flywheel nuts, lug nuts, hydro wheel motor hub nuts, and ( what I bought it fer) blade nuts and bolts. Notice the trick 15/16 X 3/8 drive socket.
    I figure, if ya use the tool to earn a livin with, then why play around with JUNK?
