Luke, speaking as a former snapon dealer, your dealer must love you.

Nice impact gun for sure. My Snap-On dealer has been pushing it on me the last few weeks but for 500 and some odd dollars he can keep it. My air impact does me just fine for now.

well see all of my pneumatic impacts combined with all your pneumatics do me no good say when I'm no the 37th fl of the Scotia tower in downtown calgary. when doing the top end of a 30 year old natural gas emergency V-12 cummins generator . or on the roof of Chinook shopping center shopping mall working on a 60 year old Waukesha/

you know for instance...........not that I was there or anything


I paid less than $500 for this one. but you know my career is using tools. and the 4 hours I was out on an emergency callout thurs night at midnight more than paid for it already.

They should have just put in two gas turbine gen set's. You guys are gonna live at that hospital between servicing and overhauls. How many hours you guys get before you have to rip in and do a top end overhaul? At least you have the hot nurses to look at

There lots of standby power units in the downtown Calgary core. At my Nova days, we had a 6meg Allison KB501 gas turbine down at the gas control bunker. It was designed to run for month straight, without a fuel-up. Big fuel tanks I can't remember if it was 5000 gallons or 50000 gallons, they even had re-circulating pump just to keep the fuel from going bad. We can el-cheapo JP3 fuel, a set down from diesel grade. We could go from cold to full load power in less one minute. The batteries keep the place running until the genny came online. The hi voltage stuff is different, I done a few 13k volt gen sets.

Wow, thats alot of generation. Is this Co-gen stuff? would have to be just for the fuel bill, NG isn't cheap anymore. Mind you they would use less fuel than a turbine..

That impact looks wonderful Luke, one might make a nice addition to my toy collection one day. Please keep us posted with your impressions of it as you use it. I'm curious as to how long it will go on a battery charge.

I am actually excited to put some miles on it. I'll let you know how it works. I will be hard on it we'll see if it stands up.


Mike theres more smaller units to have separate backups. there are regulations for hosptial standby power that are different and more strict than the buildings downtown.

they're all diesel fired engines.
