Default 12v Impact Wrench for changing Tyres - Opinions please.

Mods,

Im sorry for making a duplicate thread... I posted in the main accessory section but there was no reply
so I thought it might be relevant to post in this section. If its inappropriate you may remove this.


My friend is interested in purchasing this electrical wrench to assist him changing tyres.
He travels often from Blr to Coorg and surrounding area's and is really keen on picking this up.

Anyone have experience using such a product ? Is it advisable to go in for it ?
Also Bangalore members if any of you have bought this locally please
provide details (contact, cost.. I guess hot tracks will be the onyl place !!)

The link I provided above works out to roughly Rs.1700 including shipping.

Thanks.

Sounds like a usefull tool but... and more usefull if the person is doing lots of offroad driving... don't know about the pricing though but u can definatly get such product in banglore itself.

I guess it makes sense if you are weak or lazy and plan on having a lot of punchtures!
I prefer the old school way.

I have not used one on a car yet. If you are using in series production or repetitive work, then it definitely helps. But for once in a while use, it is more of a fashion. So if you are not interested in being too lazy to use normal wrenches then you can use it. But also remember that preparation for using will take longer than normal wrenches (something like 2 minute noodles cooked in half an hour)

Also in old school way, only one person used the wrenches and here also only one person will be doing it.
