12V Air Tools

1243 11
Do they excist?

I was 'female-dogging' about the work to get my rears off Fridays for the drag-strip and someone said I could get a cheap 12V air gun...??? Really? Does anyone (maybe you all do and I'm just retarded?) have one? Does it work, different brands, which to get, and all of that...???

Thanks!

PS. Is it okay to jack her up on the 'axle house'? (Is axle house a direct, non working, translation from Swedish? I guess you say diff or differential?)

Differential housing would be the correcter term, and I have never heard of a 12v air gun.....unless you get a 9v and a 3v battery, hold one up to each ear and blow through a straw you may get the 12v air tool your looking for. :sterb:
Maybe they were talking about a 12V air compressor for a air gun?
Well there's this, courtesy of JC Whitney. If all you wanted was an impact gun then this would likely suffice. I've never actually seen a 12v air gun or anything beyond a cheapo 12v air compressor for slowly filling tires.

That would be perfect for changing flats on the road, wonder if it has enough power RRR.

I actually have one. Not this in particular but a cheaper one my dad bought for me. They do work. The only downside I found is if you have a lug that is being stubborn and you are holding the trigger on the gun too long it will over heat. Then you have to wait a minute or two to let it cool off. Their perfect when you need to change a flat fairly quickly and you don't feel like exerting energy using a 4-way.

I worked at a national chain parts store several years ago, and we sold 'em. I used one a couple times to remove a pulley from a customer's steering pump and such. Seemed pretty stable, and it would be easy to take to the track.
If you want a fairly dencent 12V airpump it going to cost you. The QuickAir 3 is pretty popular with most of the Jeepers I know.
I don't know about theMustang but I have seen several owners manuals for other vehicles that say do not use the housing to jack up the car.I believe my 2002 Rannger was one of them and possibly my Explorer so I would be leary of jacking the car up at that location unless the owners manual says its ok.
I ordered one... and then today I made the swap to ETs and after the track back to Streets for the first time... I think it would take longer with the air wrench...!?! So I cancelled the order... Pretty cool thing though if you got a lot of nuts and no special socket like I do... plus you gotta TQ it... easier by hand!
