Anyone doing lot of nut and bolt work wants look at one of these.
I been using a mini air ratchet for few years and love it but it only 27ft-lb at best with fresh drops of turbo juice (air oil) and running more than usual 90psi working pressure and can jerk your hand into things if not prepared.
These impact dog clutch ones are much like impact wrench and thus don't jerk your hand round when torques out .
Just picked up a kuani one KI2323 . 55ft-lb torque delivery easily, well over 500rpm speed and damn tiny .
Taiwan oem and not expensive, 90 to 130gbp roughly pending on where you live and exchange rates .
also will find it rebranded by airpro . expect oz boys and usa get these easy enough but eu be bit more hassle .
product link and youtube vid that made me want one .

Looks good how chunky is the end compared to a normal ratchet just wondered what it would be like getting into tighter spaces ?

not bad size head for mini air tool ratchet but indeed not going work in real tight scenarios you only just squeeze a slim headed 3/8 normal ratchet , surprising where does fit. I use them a lot on water pump bolts, accessory pulley bolts, cambelt cover bolts etc, good ball/pin wobble joint sockets and wobble extensions make it more usable .
they make you lazy though

I still need to buy one similar. Would be handy to have around. I’m thinking I’m almost due for a tool buying spree shortly Laughing

The reactionless impact type worth getting, you likely have kuani or a rebrand in Oz as in the region .
One I had before was taiwan generic 3/8 stubby air ratchet with composite orange grip section, they only around 1,200baht and pretty useful but the impact style way more useful due to extra torque, more speed and comfort of use from no jolting of your hand . either 1 better than none .
I had a mini tool spree, going have another next month :-)

do they do a battery air hammer/riveter yet lol .
battery impact got pretty good and ideal for mobile work or occasions air line a hassle but they still damn big and heavy for lot of access scenarios .
Pretty big tool haul that, bet it made massive difference to speed and ease of work you encounter .
