Husky 1/2″ Air Impact Wrench Review

An air impact wrench is the fastest and the most powerful type of impact wrench available in the market. While the other two, the cordless and the corded, might be hassle-free to carry, and cheaper, they still cannot beat the function of an air one.

Thus, we decided to figure which air one you should choose when buying and found the Husky Air Impact Wrench and this is our review.
