Not a hands on review!

Had a hard time deciding between the 1200-K and 1150 Aircat Impacts. Both are excellent guns that equal with other top guns on the market based on user reviews. Both are rebuild-able by user, have very similar torque figures (Max. Torque 1,295 ft-lbs), are relatively quiet 86db compared to other top guns on market, have 2 yr warranties, weight about 4.5 lbs, and are about half the cost of other top guns on the market. At the time I wrote this the 1150 was about $14 more (not much difference).

So I did some research and called the company and came up with the following.

1200-K NitroCat 1200-K 1/2-Inch Kevlar Composite Air Impact Wrench With Twin Clutch Mechanism
-slower hits per minute 950.
-better gun for loosening stuck bolts. (per phone call with company)
-slightly lower reliability (per phone call with company)
-Working Torque: 200-900 (ft-lbs)
-uses 5w-30 motor oil for lubrication
-gray main body
-4.0 CFM at 90-120 PSI

1150 AIRCAT 1150 Killer Torque 1/2-Inch Impact Wrench, Black
-more hits per minute 1400 (faster)
-more for general use (per phone call with company)
-higher reliability (per phone call with company)
-Working Torque: 200-950 (ft-lb)
-uses Lithium or bearing grease for lubrication
-black main body
-4.3 CFM at 90-120 PSI

Hope this helps with anyone trying to decide.
I need to get some stuck bolts out and am going with the 1200k. Hope it works.

i work in a tractor-trailer shop and most of the guys there are snap-on fanatics...granted snap-on is awesome, i didn't like the $450 price tag on the mg725 so i went with the nitrocat 1200k...i have to say i made a GREAT choice!!! it impressed a master mechanic and put his mg725 to shame removing lug nuts on a rusted out kenworth and then left another speechless when removing the top starter bolt on a cummins isx engine (heavy truck mechanics will know this is a feat to be proud of)...that all being said ive only had the gun for about a month but...properly oiled and with the right air preasure AND volume applied to it... it WILL perform right along side the snap-on mg725 ($450) the timax2135($400) and any other powerful 1/2" impact you can find and will perform at a reasonable price!!

I'me a road dog(field service) for an allison dealer. I need to carry one gun under the truck and come back with 20 hrs of laber done in 8 hrs. This gun can do that, and is quieter than my old IR titanium. be carfull getting use to it, it's hammer action is quicker than the IR, so it will snap hardwaer quick if you let it.

Great tool for my use (home). Here is my summary:

The reviewer describing the differences between this and the twin hammer 1150 is accurate.

The main reason for the slight torque advantage of the pin clutch design (and also why it's apparently "slower") is that a twin hammer design will impact twice per revolution, whereas the pin clutch design impacts once per revolution - "twin" clutch just refers to the two pins that do the hitting. This allows for the potential of higher impact torque due to the longer rotation of the mechanism per hit.

Twin hammer mechanisms (like the 1150) has fewer moving parts and only requires occasional greasing of the hammer mechanism (over time the grease 'slings off' the mechanism due to inertia. Pin clutch mechanisms like this sit in a sealed "oil bath." There are more moving parts, and eventually/sometimes the seals will leak. You usually don't HAVE to fix (replace the seals) because the leak is usually small enough not to be critical (usually). It's called an "oil bath," but in most designs it's not that the whole mechanism sits in a sealed environment completely filled with oil - it's just a small "pocket" of oil deep enough so that as the mechanism operates, it is able to kick up and sling the oil around within the casing.

The seals required plus the additional parts over a twin hammer design, in theory, does give the higher POTENTIAL for problems - especially if not cared for properly. It also makes it SLIGHTLY more complicated to breakdown/maintain/service.

So I just received this awesome impact wrench. It uses way less air than most for the price. I had 3 lug nuts on my truck that wouldn't buge with a 4 way or my buddies snap on MG725, Which states it maxes out with about 1190 ftlb of torque. It costs $459 and I only paid $165 for the nitro. The nitro took them right off. I'm real satisfied with it. For the money you just can't beat it.

I needed this specifically for a Honda engine crankshaft center bolt. It arrived quickly, and did the job perfect.
I was using an older 500 ft/lb air impact wrench, but that just couldn't do the job. I'm very happy with it and highly
recommend it. If you do get it, you just have 10 days to send the registration in to make the warranty valid, so make sure you do that.
