The Thunder Gun will rattle out almost any old rusty bolt or spin off almost any nut you can put it on. The ones that are stuck really good, well it will twist them off. I have had it twist several 1/2" and a few 5/8" bolts that were rusted in solid.

I use this gun for work on big rigs and farm tractors. Can't beat it for the money. Just be sure to upgrade your hose and fittings to give it plenty of air.

The only downfall is that it uses alot of cfm at load. It will tap a smaller compressor if you are using it heavily.

This gun strikes fear into the souls of my coworkers and the women and children in the waiting area of our shop. This gun sounds throaty and loud like a harley compared to a crotch rocket. As for performance we had this gun up against a snap-on and Mac Impact the other day and while the other 2 would not turn the nut off of a semi-truck this one did. Here is a little secret(It is also less than half the price of the other guns out there). You can honestly not beat this gun for the money. If you want a good gun with some flair this is a great buy. Would recommend for anyone. I am the every day guy with tons of money invested in snap-on, Matco and Mac and I will take this gun any day of the week.

I bought this item because all IR Tools seem to be the best in their class. I needed a replacement 1/2" Gun to replace the cheap one I got from Northern after the trigger fell out. I needed to run some 3/4" Nuts off the hitch on my Bobcat Trailer so I cranked up the gun on an older T30 IR Two-Stage Compressor set at 150 psi. I was really surprised that after soaking the non-rusted nuts with Liquid Wrench for a couple days, I couldn't get them to budge. Everything was right but the wrench was totally wimpy. I had to use a breaker bar and start them all without the wrench...
When I asked at the dealer the sales person seemed confused by my issue but looked it up in the fine print and was very surprised to find that the tool requires 23 cfm to do real work. That's some huge cfm by most tools standards. In fact, without 23 cfm the tool makes a nice noise but it'll do no work. My pretty big 50 gal T30 IR Compressor is only good to 17 cfm at 150 which is probably too much pressure to put into the wrench over the long term...
There are lots of other tools including IR tools that work at the 6-8 cfm range but this Thunder Gun is not one of them! If I could exchange it, I truly would! It sat in the new box for almost a year before I needed it so I doubt that I could still swap it for a different lower cfm IR tool. Buyer Beware.

This being my first impact gun I decided to go with Ingersoll Rand and the debate was between the thunder gun and the TiMax. Being a weekend mechanic I decided the TiMax was more for a professional working 8 hour days with the gun.

The Thunder gun is close enough to the TiMax in torque power for my needs. It is much heavier but again I'm not holding the gun for any extended amount of time so the weight is a non-issue. It has enough torque to zip a lug nut that is torqued to 110 ft lbs off in less than a second. The lug nut is spinning freely before I realize the trigger has been fully pulled. Putting lug nuts back on using the forward torque setting is a breeze. I was able to dial in the forward torque to put them back on at around 80 ft lbs then use my torque wrench to get them at 110. It has been convenient to be able to go from full power in reverse to half power forward with just a switch of the button. If you need full power in forward it is easy to turn the dial also. I have a 6.5 HP 35 gallon compressor and can remove / install all 4 wheels without the compressor having to kick on to recover. It does kick the compressor on when trying to break a Really stuck bolt. Holding the trigger for several seconds at a time really sucks the air down, at 10cfm @ 90 psi my compressor so far has kept up just fine.

The protective yellow boot is a nice touch and has kept the gun from sliding on my garage floor and getting scratched up when I drag it around. However the nice yellow boot just seems to absorb grease and grim and mine is now mostly black. I tried cleaning it after each use hoping to keep it nice looking but it just didn't happen. It's not a big deal for me but worth mentioning to people hoping to keep a nice bright yellow boot, it will be a hassle.

Sounds cool. Looks good. Great for most projects. High speed. Does lack on reverse power if you got big nuts that are rusted solid. But I live on the coast so there is a lot of that. Has worked great for most everything I've came across. Sometimes just need a bigger gun. Good quality gun that has been put a lot of rough uses. I like it cause of the cool look an sound. Looks good compared to a plane black or grey gun. Fits in your hand comfortable. About average on weight compared to other 1/2inch guns. Has held up good even after taking a 40 foot fall to the ground. I'm know their is better guns out there but I would still pick this one if I had to buy another one. Product description As close as you can get to the real racing tools used by NASCAR pit crews. It features 625 ft.-lbs. of torque in reverse, with 10,000 rpm to deliver pit crew power, speed, and durability for shop to.
