i bought this jobmate electric impact gun for $19.99, i got it cause it ran off the cigarette lighter. seemed neat to have around for roadside tire changes. the very first lug nut i tried it on the gearing broke and it wouldn't spin with any force, and my socket became stuck somehow. such a fiasco!

i did however pick up one of the 7.5 amp impact guns canadian tire had on sale last week for $44.99. its so handy for tire changes and such things you dont need gobs of power from pneumatics.

A good rechargeable with an extra battery is a great thing when you go into the bush.

DeWalt is the way to go! I have air corded and cordless, the air is good to 150-175 (maybe) ftlbs, with dewalt (dw293, not plastic box, which is to bad) is good to 325ftlbs (can't beat that!) the dewalt 18volt (which I can't seem to find right now) is great for the bush and travel, and I never go on trips with out it.
Go with the electric, for the weekend guy it's the best way to go, it's heavy but your not using everyday all day, so it beats the air tool hands down, just the cord to drag around as opposed to the portable compressor, air hose, extension cord, to much farting around with that.

Again stay away from the crappy tire, it's off shore as well...

air is the only way to go, the amount you guys have spent on electric ones is more than i paid for the compressor + goodies that i got. that electric thing for $20 is a joke lol bust out the bar and get some exercise!
