Porter Cable PCE211 1/2″ 7.5 Amp Impact Wrench Review

Worked pretty well to get nuts off quickly, but was struggling to get some of the more rusty lug nuts loose. So this wrench is not quite in the same range as other impact wrenches, but it’ll get the job done.

Will make your work quicker, that’s for sure. But we do not see it in the same range of power torque that you would get from an air impact wrench. Plus this drill is slightly heavier than other impact wrenches. It’s a corded tool, so it isn’t quite as convenient as the impacts we reviewed above, but for the price, it’s an excellent overall wrench.

Excellent for removing lug nuts off with some effort, so not the best pick, however, we got it for a great deal! This wrench is a bit on the heavy side, but it’ll get your regular nuts in a few seconds.

If you’re looking for something on the inexpensive side, then this is a good pick for best budget impact wrench.
