Product Description

Amazon.com

Porter Cable's 3/8-Inch Impact Wrench is a powerful pneumatic tool that delivers 125 ft./lbs. of torque at 90 PSI. This heavy-duty wrench features a variable speed trigger with one-touch reverse switch for fast and simple selection of speed and direction.

From the Manufacturer

After Porter-Cable captured the lion's share of the pneumatic nailer business it seemed natural to focus on a whole line of pneumatic tools. After two years of testing and redesigning and testing again Porter-Cable is proud to introduce their new line of pneumatic tools. This 3/8-inch pneumatic impact is packed with premium features you normally only see in a 1/2-inch impact. The 1,800 blows per minute create a maximum torque of 125 ft/lbs at 90 pounds per square inch of pressure (psi). With a free spinning speed of 10,000 revolutions per minute this unit not only has enough power to get the job done, it is fast as well. The best feature of all has to be the variable-speed trigger for precise control, a feature not normally offered on pneumatic tools. A one-touch forward/reverse selector, durable pin clutch mechanism, and cushion grip round out this tool.

Impact wrench works great but I have two issues. First of all, the connector should be 1/4" NPT not 3/8". Secondly, it's harder than it should be to find the notch that the dial should be turned to in order to set the maximum torque. Having said that, this is a very good product and I would recommend it's purchase.

It's hard to find impact wrenches like this one that can actually be used to tighten without the risk of applying too much torque. Most other wrenches that have torque limiting features don't specify what the maximum torque is at each setting. Without this information, you really have no idea how much torque your applying and the adjustment feature loses its value.

I have used this with a small compressor to break lug nuts on mud-encrusted kart wheels and to drive large lag screws without bogging down. I am pleased and it goes with me to the cabin.

I don't use a 3/8 inch impact nearly as heavily as I do my 1/2 inch, so I thought I'd save a few bucks, and get a more moderately priced one. When my package showed up, I was pleasantly surprised at the initial build quality, and general feel of precision of this tool, considering its price. While not on par powerwise with I-R air tools, it is also much cheaper to buy. I haven't used it enough to comment on its long-term durability, but build quality seems good, and power is adequate for anyting you would likely use a 3/8 drive wrench on.

UPDATE:
After owning and using this impact wrench for a while, I have come to like it more and more. It has been completely trouble free, and seems to have all the power they claim it to have.
It still has a tight, precise 'feel' and what I thought might be a little glitch turns out to be a great feature. When I first got the tool, I noticed what I thought was a tiny 'catch' in the trigger. Nothing to worry about, I thought, just a little rough spot that would smooth out with use. Well, it did smooth out, and I have to say that I am convinced that it is not a 'catch' in the action, as much as a two-stage trigger. By that, I mean with light pressure, it goes in a little bit, and with a little more pressure, it will go in all the way. Now, here's the beauty of it all as best I can explain it. Press the trigger partway, to the point where it starts getting harder to press, and the tool will rotate 'slowly' - at just the right speed to align the socket with the bolt. I use 6 point impact sockets, so the hex of the socket usually don't align with the bolt head. Well, hold the socket against the bolt, press the trigger gently, and the socket rotates slowly into alignment with the bolt head.
