What electric impact wrench?
voucht - 6/1/20 at 10:02 AM


I'm looking to buy an portable, battery driven impact wrench, and I need advices.

I already have an air driven one, and find it very efficient to unscrew bolts or screws that are stuck. But it is annoying having to take it out and connect, run the compressor and so on, just to undo one screw ! So I want to buy an electric one with battery.

I would prefer to spend less than 100 euros (85).

What do you guy advise ?
Brand ?
Model ?
1/4'' female hexagonal head, or 1/2'' male square head?

Clarke do a 230v one --- not bad but not super powerful --- just don't use in the rain !

Yes my thread!

Jut be prepared to be dissapointed with anything low budget, I was.

I wouldnt waste my money on a 1/4 Hex they just wont do anything tough.
Just get yourself a hex to 1/2" adaptor for your electric drill, crak the nut with a spanner then spin it of with a sockett on the drill

Thanks for the replies folks!
The thread given by Gremlin is very instructive and I got all the informations I needed there.
I might go for a Ryobi
