    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.
