    After having used the Allegheny for 1.5 years, the Goodyear and Harbor Freight model for about the same amount of time I have come to the conclusion that the Allegheny advertises a higher torque rating, but it does not spin the nuts as fast and the battery does not last nearly as long.

    While the battery pack on the Allegheny is physically larger, it does not weigh as much which leads me to believe their is less Al Gore horrifying lead and other toxics in that pack. I bought two units and an extra battery pack to combat this. I also broke two units in that period of time, but I managed to get them exchanged. For a decent lunch at a track day I think I will give one motor unit and charger to Mr. Evo and a battery plus charger to you. That will leave me with an extra battery for the highest bidder.

    I think the Goodyear unit and HF units are pretty comparable. It would not surprise me to find the mechanisms are made in the same factory. I think I will check out battery prices and availability for both and make my decision on that. I always like to have an extra battery charging.

    And that is how it is.....

      I have one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/DEWALT-DW059K-2-...3A1%7C294%3A50 don't know if this add is a good deal on it...so shop around.

      Emilio and I got these ~4 years ago (maybe???) and I have been kicking it's butt on a regular basis, and it's been laughing at me (can't speak to Emilio's experience, but last time I was @ his shop it was sitting on his workbench)

      I know it's more than 70 bucks, but you guys are ready to spend another $70 on a second purchase and when you get your 3rd purchase this will seem like a bargain.

          I had an allegheny and it died quickly, I was not happy with it and your right Pep boys could not help out.

          I bought a Dewalt and although it is not cheap they are wonderful.

          The battery last for ever it seems and you get two batteries when you buy the wrench.

          I storngly recommend paying a little more and getting a good one.

          Their batteries switch to other tools as well if you need a saws all or other Dewalt tools.

            +1.
            since battery always dies before the impact wrench. it is more important how many batteries you are getting vs. how many impact wrench you are buying. so at regular price of $70 each, equivalent of 2 batteries would be $140. not a lot cheaper than Dewalt at $220, especially Dewalt batteries also last more than twice as long.

              Tom and William, good points. Assuming Oli sells me his Allegheny batteries for cheap, I'll run my unit until it dies. THEN, I'll consider getting a nicer one.

                Like I said, just buy be a decent lunch at BW, WSIR or ACS. I won't eat the free SV pizza.

                    have any of you guys had any experience with the harbor freight "Chicago Electric" cordless 1/2" impact wrench? I was at HF and was taking a look at it but didn't want to buy it without some feedback from others.

                    Thanks

                        The one I have now is made by a company called "Great Neck" and I think I bought it at Pep Boys. It is sturdier than the Goodyear and Allegheny models, and the battery lasts longer too. I recommend the Great Neck cordless impact wrench.

                          I agree but I've had more issues w/ more expensive tools than I have with HF tools. Pretty much all non-professional power tool are made in China anyways. I bought the corded electric impact from HF and it's no slouch. My only complaint is it's lack variable speed.
