Ingersoll Rand IR111
Campbell Hausfelt TL1001
Ingersoll Rand - The quietest of the group by a fair margin. Its motor is apparently different than the others so the high pitched whine is absent. The reactionless feature is apparent because it changes to a hammer mode (although it is still low torque) when the torque becomes too high. Most expensive. Made in Japan.
Husky - Typical air tool whine. When the nut runs up, the wrench just stops, no impact. Realistically, I can't see this torque being enough to smash any fingers. It has a nice rubber handle grip that the others lack. Half the cost of the Ingersoll Rand. Made in Taiwan.
Campbell Hausfelt - No rubber handle and slight styling differences, but operation is identical to Husky. Half the cost of the Husky. Made in Taiwan.
Conclusion: My logical side says to keep the Campbell Hausfelt because it the best value. The tool collector in me that drools over exotic tools wants to keep the Ingersoll Rand because it is the best tool, even if the difference is awfully small for four times the cost. I'm talking myself into keeping the IR because of the lower noise, but I still wonder whether my choice is discriminating or just dumb.
Originally I had bought it because I thought I could use with a hex bit adapter and screw driver bit as a right angle drill / driver. However, I soon realized the ratcheting action really wouldn't work for this purpose. Too much vibration and the bit tended to skip off the screw.
Not sure if I can really notice the "reactionless" feature. Haven't had the opportunity to bust my knuckles using other models to know if the IR-111 is any better.
One disapppointing feature is the lack of torque. This air ratchet really isn't capable of removing stubborn fasteners. I guess 50 foot-lbs really isn't that much. I don't have any sure way to tell if my ratchet is performing up to spec. But I have had to resort to my trusty 3/8" Craftsman ratchet to remove tough nuts/bolts. This tool is probably better for tightening fasteners, since there is usaually little resistance and the limited torque will prevent stipping the [threads].
