HF Earthquake XT Impact Wrench Review

I bought an Earthquake XT 1/2 inch impact wrench from Harbor Freight about a month ago and thought I'd share my experience with you. I watched a lot of YouTube videos about how powerful it is, and they seem to be borne out by my experience. So are I've used it to disassemble an engine, change lower control arms, do a couple of brake jobs, and a few other odds and ends. It has not disappointed me so far. I think it was money well spent.

I thought I'd revisit this. I found some bolts the impact wrench couldn't loosen. They were exhaust bolts on a 22 year old Subaru. Of course, a three-foot breaker bar couldn't loosen them either. My plasma cutter made quick work of them, though.
