1/2 Impact Wrench – Top 3 Picks

Looking for a great 1/2″ impact wrench? Here I will be going over 3 great choices. The NEIKO PRO Dr Twim Hammer, the NEIKO Twin Hammer w/ 2″ Anvil, and the AIRCAT 1100K. I’m not sure what your budget it for buying a new impact wrench, but I do want to caution you that you get what you pay for! If you buy a good one from the start, it’ll be with you for life, where a cheap one won’t be worth the metal you build it from!

The first impact wrench is the NEIKO PRO Dr Twin Hammer at $122.86. The standard specs from the manufacturer are:

– 1/2″ drive

– 800 ft-lb max torque

– 5,500 RPM with no load

– 4.5 CFM air consumption

– 4 Torque Settings (245, 270, 320, 608 ft-lbs)

– 7.95 lbs

This is a great, professional grade, adjustable torque impact wrench. It’s got a lot of torque, and it’s pretty efficient, needing only 4.5 CFM of air. The 4 different torque setting are nice too, but don’t forget that those torque setting are no alternative to a torque wrench. Take your time and do the job right.

The next impact wrench is the NEIKO Twin Hammer w/ 2″ Anvil, going for $122.86. Here are the specs:

– 1/2″ drive

– 500 ft-lb max torque

– 7,000 RPM with no load

– 13 CFM air consumption

– 7.95 lbs

This is the low power wrench of the bunch. But don’t let that fool you, it’s got a good amount of power, and it’ll work on the lug-nuts of your car or light truck with ease.

The one thing you’ll want to be careful about is the air consumption. Make sure your air compressor can handle 13 CFM if you want this wrench.

The last impact wrench is the AIRCAT 1100K, going for $253.96. Here are the specs:

– 1/2″ drive

– 1,100 ft-lb max torque (200-900 ft-lb working torque)

– 9,000 RPM with no load

– 4 CFM air consumption

– 4.5 lbs

The big selling point of this wrench is that it’s significantly quieter than any other impact wrench in its class. It is rated at 86 decibels, and I will say that quantifying sound is kind of a contrived process (it’s all about distance from the source, and direction, etc), but this wrench did seem quieter during use than the other two.

This wrench is also the lightest and the most powerful of the three. It feels solid while you’re using it, but at the same time, it’s made of Kevlar, which just doesn’t have the same feel as steel.

It is a great wrench, and it more powerful and lighter than any of the others here.

Overall, the biggest thing about buying an impact wrench is getting the torque you need. If you’re looking for a wrench for those smaller tasks, the NEIKO Twin Hammer w/ 2″ Anvil is a great choice. If you need a lot of torque, the NEIKO PRO Dr Twin Hammer would be a great addition to your tool box. And if you’re looking for great power, that’s quiet, and light AIRCAT 1100K is the wrench for you!
