You can find used impact guns pretty cheap and even get them at home improvement stores for a decent price. Another consideration is the PSI of your compressor, the higher the PSI the better torque your gun will have. The smaller the compressor the less PSI usually. Good luck.
Cool thanks. I learned something new. I didn't know about the higher PSI thing. I have my grandpa's old impact wrech and it wasn't doing the job, maybe I gotta turn up the pressure. I think I had it fairly low.
