It probably has it's uses. I've always used a compressor setup and hand tools on most of my projects.

I use mine on almost everything I work on. Obviously some things it won't have the jam for but lots of smaller bolts it's awesome. Helps speed things way up.

I use a 1/2" Mastercraft Professional Series 18V LI. It has more torque than my Campbell and Hausfield 1/2" air gun rated at 450 ft lbs. The air gun struggles with lug nuts and tight nuts and bolts. The battery MPS zips them off like nothing. I also use my 3/8 and 1/2 air ratchets extensively as well. I use torque wrenches for tightening everything back up. Hope this helps.

I use my 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" 18v dewalt impacts like crazy. I've put at least a million miles on the 3/8" one. Putting roofing screws in all summer, working on vehicles. Grain bins ect... been under water, used in the rain and snow, and drooped off barns. I have had great luck with them. Pretty much indestructible

Not to start any kind of brand war. But I had one Milwaukee 1/4" it worked great except the battery's were junk I had 3 quit on me in one summer. Well it's sitting in the bottom of my tool box lol had a craftsman 14.4, well i ended up taking that back 3 times in 2 days. I've had good luck with Makita, and dewalt.

I've been using makita cordless drills in my cabinet business for years I feel they are the best for comfort/longevity. Current favorite is the 1/4 impact http://www.amazon.com/Makita-BTD140-18-Volt-Lithium-Impact/dp/B000EDPSSM/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1324783265&sr=8-10 I use it working on the truck as well you need adapters to use sockets, no big deal it will break loose most small and medium bolts and you can use it to run the bigger ones in and out after breaking them loose. Another thing it is small and precise so it can be used on interior trim screws and what not also. I have used tons of different drills and impacts and for what this one covers it is the best imo.

ive had a aryobi that i have beat on for the past three years, not powerful enough for lug nuts and the such, but great for lots of stuff like alternator bolts, loosening tranny pan bolts, et c etc. for pro constant use ryobi usually isnt the best, but for weekend warrior shadetree stuff its great. good warranty too.

when i had need for better, i usually go with bosch, or hitachi. i have had good luck with them in the past.

I use a Dewalt 36v 1/2". One battery was enough for swapping a 10.25 axle.
