We use air all the time, use the same impact wrench on my trucks as we use on the tractors, and it's 10 years old and still kickin.

i personally used my snap on air impact when i was working in the shop and it was great, but since i moved into a service truck i purchased both 3/8 and 1/2" cordless from snap on. i love them the 3/8 is quite small and torquey but lug nuts are nearing its capacity, it will do most but not the occasional one. the 1/2 has tons of power it has no problems with 7/8 hardware with stover lock nuts, IMO best on the market, but i have heard lots of good about igersoll rand, and dewalt as well. it all depends on what your budget is

its not damage, its experience

I have a electric 1/2 " drive impact gun which I bought 5 yrs ago from princess auto, works great for changing tires in my garage at home, but at work I use snap on 1/2 " & 3/4 " & 1 " drive air impact guns. Like guys have said all depends what you can afford and what you want to do with it.
