The Vibe and Outlander got their winter tires rotated on today from the basement.
It’s so much faster in a garage with a lift and all four corners off the ground. Using the scissor jack and cranking them up one at a time sure does slow things down. The lock nuts on my rims were on way tighter than the lugs. The electric impact gun couldn’t get them off so I had to go and get the 2′ breaker bar and break them by hand. All the brake pads look good. I didn’t get into the drums on the Vibe – they should probably be looked at for Lauren’s next oil change. I have a feeling her drums are going to be my next job.
Canadian Tire just recently had a tool commercial with this Stanley FatMax impact gun connected to a dinky recoil spring air hose. I was about to get upset that they were misleading people that they could use their crappy little portable compressor with such a tool but according to the spec’s it looks like it should work with my compressor. Needs 3.3 CFM@90PSI mine puts out 4.1.
It is listed at $170 and out of stock for something I already have an electric tool for. Kind of hard to justify the purchase even if it means one less thing to lug upstairs.
