It is still so new and not getting much more time just yet. Hope this will last and will write another review after a few months or so.
Second, know that all torque wrenches are impact tools, not straight torque tools, so _anything_ that absorbs the impact at all will reduce the torque of the tool significantly. The tool depends on the impact to deliver the torque. If you use any extensions, have any thick grease in between the socket and bolt, these will absorb the impact and therefore stop the tool from delivering the torque.
I was using this to take a 1/2" hardened hex bolt out of my 8" Kurt milling vise and it did get one out. The second one still won't budge. It is clearly more powerful than my harbor freight earthquake, and clearly better built. It's pretty quiet and runs very smoothly. Overall I'm happy with my purchase, but I wish manufacturers wouldn't make up torque values. For the price I think it's a really nice wrench.
I have been using it very carefully for almost a week since I got it because it is MADE IN TAIWAN, not made in the USA like stated on Aircat website which I have full screenshot of it.
I emailed Aircat sales division and got answer that their website is out of date. if that is the case, Aircat should pay somebody to update their website so nobody will disappointed because of misleading product.
since it was MADE IN TAIWAN, I am not sure about the quality. will it be same as the US made? only time will tell.
