Opinions on 3/4" gun

Postby spencerdiesel » Wed Jan 17, 2018 2:47 pm

Im looking at 3/4" impact guns and was looking for yalls opinions of the current lineup.

The main ones I am considering are: IR 2145, Mac AWP075 (or proto equivalent), and Snapon mg1200.

Questions: Does anyone have experience with any of these guns? Does the mg1200 have the same hit or miss reliability as it's 1/2" and 3/8" lineup?

On Garage Journal, it seems a lot of guys are nuts about the current Mac/Proto variants and compare their output to some 1" guns. I have both the snapon mg725 and Mac awp050 and both are stout, with the slight edge to the Mac. The Proto 3/4" can be had for around $200 less than the Mac equivalent.
Ok so that wasn't really a question :roll:

I've heard nothing but great things about the IR 261, but it weighs close to twice what the above mentioned guns do, anyone want to enlighten me more about this gun?

All thoughts welcome, thanks

Don't know the model, but I have a IR and only use it on the big trucks for wheel removal. It has broken a few big boy impact sockets so it has grunt anyway. It is heavy, but its only used a couple times a year.

IR all the way. No need paying the price for snapon and I don't know about your Mac guy by mine is spotty on if he comes or not. Regardless if I owe or not.

My fiancées cousin is taking the same program in school I did, and he's not going to use his student discount. I can get the Mac or SO for about half price.
