What size compressor for a impact gun.

Definitely go cordless, I’m impressed with mine that I got just before Christmas. 3/4 should be big enough.

Would a cordless be powerful enough to snap off tractor wheel nuts? At the moment I have a meter long bar on the socket but it gives my back a hell of jolt when they let go.
Mines only a baby 1/2 and it’ll loosen anything with a full charge. Really really surprised me. I still use the bar to double check they’re tight just

I bought the most powerful half inch Makita for general use, and run a 4800nm inch drive windy gun off a twin cylinder deutz compressor for the meaty stuff (HGV wheel nuts and stuff larger than 36mm).

The compressor setup isn’t exactly handy… but it’s handier than a stuck bolt stopping the job in it’s tracks.
