Any one use the KCI EzyWrench that the national magazine is giving as a 'freebie' with the subscription offer? (even though it's actually $25 if you do the sums...)

I'm not really interested in the' impact' capabilities, just really for spinning the wheel nuts on and off when swapping the muddies onto the truck.

I've always been a bit dubious about the capability when they demonstrate this thing at the shows, coz it just spins the same nut on and off and on and...

Got one (Shentai version) love it! Has about 250Ft/Lb of torque. Undoes anything. The included sockets are crap though. Buy yourself a decent set.
DON'T use it to do up wheel nuts, it has too much torque.

Yep,

I've got one and it removed a wheel nut that a Tbar, pipe extension and a hammer couldn't undo.

As above don't use to tighten.

Basically mine winds itself up then whacks the nut to loosen it.

Thanks for the replies, it sounds like it will do the job easier than dragging out the compressor and rattle gun.

Everytime any of my cars has been near a tyre/servcie place where the wheels have been off, I'll hand the factory supplied wheel wrench to the service manager and ask them to 'just crack one of the nuts for me...' Only ever had one that could manage it - I love it when they just rattle the nuts on tight.

If you want to use it to tighten your wheel nuts you can buy a torque limiting bar like these http://www.bosstoolsupply.com/index.aspPageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=9583
that is the correct tension for the wheel nuts on your vehicle

Money well spent
