I use campbell-housfeld crap at home. My buddy the professional has a
Chicago Pneumatic that will undo darn near anything. I suppose he runs
more air pressure than I also. He uses a cheaper Chicago Pneumatic for
his regular work, but when he wants to unscrew a VW bearing keeper or
some such, the big green one comes out of the box. I think it cost
several hundred dollars, but for a pro, it is worth it.
