This one if a must for any mechanic! Or for those who got compressor



1/2'' Square Drive 860Nm Micro air gun. I've got mine from mac tools van for £170 and it came with 2 years warranty.
It's a little animal it'll actually undo lorry wheel nut and it's about 1/3 of a size of standard air gun. If any of you guys seen it and debating if it's worthy just buy it!

Oh just a word of advice (or observation) 3 of us bought facom and our boss got himself Mac tools version of it (basically same thing) we got no problems his packed up after 2 weeks... From what I've heard on fb Mac version if not as robust for some reason

Well I cheaped out :-/ picked up this Taiwan one for 2,400Bt (£55 roughly). Tested it in shop and seemed punchy and nice feathering trigger too. rated a 450ft-lb 610Nm and max reverse 500ft-lb 680Nm. Used it on couple ej20 crank pulleys and it zipped um off no prob, will oil it daily (few drops atf ) lol and see how lasts ...
125mm from back to 1/2" drive tip, 3 power setting fwd and rev. Over £100 cheaper and not much less grunt, if was in uk would of got the facom off eBay as uk price great .

Some of the cheaper stuff works no problem and just as good as the more expensive, hopefully it lasts and saved yourself some money Smile

Little update on this one... With my compressor (8bar) it has no problem with hub nuts (those 32mm) and it'll undo no problem flywheel bolts and centre crank pulley bolt!

At work we've got beast of a compressor, hydrovane 10 bar instant pressure sort of thing for 1in guns etc so it's sort of over pressurised. I'm surprised myself that it performs like that with small compressor!!!

Oh and I do apologise for making you jealous. You've got better weather thou lol!

I'll swap some sunshine for a facom tool truck lol.
I think anymore than 120psi is wasted in an impact gun. My taiwan mini doing well but that facom is king of the mini guns .
