    for what they are, there a bargain.

    i just wish they were as pretty as the SP motorsport spanners haha..

    all seriousness though.
    SP's motorsport series is fucking sensational.
    there just as good, if not better than Snap on's.
    the finish is better too, hold up alot better and it's a better quality finish also.

    Ive used both aggressively, as well as starwillyz , repco, craftsman, kinchrome, sidchrome etc etc.. fuller... blah..

    SP motorsport and stahlwille are plain sick.

    Looking to purchase an impact wrench in the near future.

    Are electric ones any good? Do they put out enough torque to undo the stubborn of bolts?

    It will only be used to do odd jobs on the car so I wont be using it a whole lot anyway.

    Or would just be better off getting a pneumatic one? If so what is a decent size compressor should i use/get?

    electric ones are good, but only get a lithium battery one.
    snap on makes good guns but there 500-800 for you 14.4v 3/8 gun..
    and there never going the be as powerful as a pneumatic gun.

    for basic stuff on the car, trade quip has a 14v'er that would do the job fine.
    just make sure you get one with a Li-ion battery capability or you'll be buying new battery's every 6 months...

    Speaking of Impact Wrenches.. whats bang for buck air compressor? Needs to handle minimum to regular usage of rattle gun. Thinking of 40L.. direct drive 2.5hp or so. Think that would be enough? Anyone have a suggestion as to what I should buy?

    Nothing crazy with the price.

    anything over 150 liters per minute is ok for home useage...

    get something over 200 LPM though..

    ie: 2.5hp+, 45L+ tank

    - this would be great

    i have a hitachi electric rattle gun and imo its better than my pneumatic rattle gun. there's less parts and dont need a compressor. plus every one has a power point, right.....

    Snap-On 18V Rattle gun

    I'd love one, but I could also buy an average air compressor and air rattle gun for the price.
