Seen that, thinking off getting the air impact wrench as i`ve already got a compressor. Wonder if it`ll be up to the job on removing the bottom pulley bolt and the front hub nuts :?

I would say that's largely dependent upon the tight fit of the socket/attachment and the capability of your compressor.

Hmm, I have a 3HP compressor with 150 litre tank and it still does not have the power to use the wrench properly.

In all honesty I found it a waste of time.

you need a a serious 3 phase compressor to get those things working properly.

you can put more force on a nut with normal tools.
