    They still sell those 12 Volt Electric Impact wrenches. At times I wish I had one of them. I'll give you $10. :)

    I think Northern and some other places like JC Whitney sells them still. You can get an impact wrench in air, 120 Volt and 12 Volt. You got a good deal on that.

    Its hard to see how they can generate this
    much power without air.Oh well learn a little
    something everyday.

    I have a Makita rechargable for changing my blades. Nice setup! It sure beats the old wrench and breaker bar!

    Harbor Frieght Tools carry electric impact wrenches. I bought mine for $30 and it works great. Took off my F350 wheel nuts pretty easy. Works good on mower blades also.

    One of my employees trash-picked one of these last year and tried to sell it to me. I finally relented and gave him $7 (mainly so he'd have money for lunch and smokes). It was the best $7 I ever spent! It'll break loose anything - even the most cranked on, stubborn blade bolt/nut! I later saw one in the JC Whitney Catalog for about $50!
