Good Impact Gun

Pros:High torque, light weight

Cons:fragile air fitting base.

The Bottom Line: Recommended to all DYI's as this is an affordable strong impact tool.


I bought this Kawasaki 1/ 2-Inch Air Impact Wrench as my first air tool as I'm beginning as an automotive technician, have done DIY before but bought to work on my own vehicle. At first I doubted about its strength as it is mostly made of plastic. The doubt were for good reason the fitting to attach the air hose is attached to a plastic part whish if not careful it can be easily broken or get loose making the gun lose air. Besides that problem the unit is strong.

What I like most like in any other impact gun is the ability to select a torque setting in a lever with 4 option R for reverse and 1, 2 and 3 respectively for tightening strength. The ½ front drive hold sockets very well they don't fall off or get lose with use.

What I did not like is the problem when attaching the hose fitting as it got lose and I have no way of tightening the whole base together.

This tool is part of Kawasaki air tool set with includes air ratchet, air hammer, and air grinder.

Also note that it does work on a ¼ hose but will not have enough power to lose bolt or tight at no much more than hand tight. Also a 2 gallon air tank cannot sustain its operation.
