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.
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.Read more ›
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.

I broke several tools trying to get a crank bolt out. I bought this gun and used it as soon as it arrived. I was floored how easy this gun spun off that crank bolt. Read morePublished 5 days ago by J T
Great item, Great price, works perfectly.
Heavy duty for industrial use.!
This impact has plenty torque, no bolt it can't loosen... I love it! Other than the excellent torque it's a high quality built tool. I would definitely buy another.Published 17 days ago by Amazon Customer
