The Ultimate Impact
Tool users now have added value in a single purchase with the IM3100 VERSADRIVER from Snap-on Tools Company. The revolutionary impact wrench generates as much as 275 lb-ft of torque and adjusts from a 3/8-inch drive to a 1/2-inch drive with a single pull of a pin, allowing users to interchange eight different square drives for a variety of tasks. A patented ribbed cushion grip, which shields the user's hand while absorbing vibration, is ergonomically designed to maximize comfort and insulate against cold temperatures. The grip is field replaceable, and its surface resists oil and other shop chemicals. A large selector knob controls forward or reverse operation, and a five-position built-in air regulator and trigger tip valve offer varying speeds for superior control.

Oasis Off Road Mfg. developed the Trailhead air compressor to outperform any onboard air system for inflating tires on off-road trucks, but we see another use for this dynamo. With a 8 cfm rate of airflow at 100 psi, this compressor is a natural for use in air suspension systems in minis. The secret ingredients to this amount of flow is a 2.5hp winch-type motor that is coupled with a York compressor. The Trailhead does weigh in at a hefty 45 pounds and takes up 17 inches of space, but its performance offsets this easily. For more information, contact: Oasis Off Road Mfg., Dept. MT, 22971 Triton Way, Ste. F, Laguna Hills, CA 92653, (949) 768-4311, www.oasis-off-road.com.
