Go for the chainsaw head impact wrench. I think there are a few to chose from.

I just removed two pads on a Case 450B dozer so I could remove the track. I used a 1/2 impact but I had to heat the bolts and nuts. I will have to chase the threads on the nuts and bolts to salvage them. The bolts would start out until the part of the bolt that sticks out past the nut started through the nut hit and that was it with out heat. If I was going to replace all the pads I would cut out the bolts and replace with new just because of the time involv..ed. Took along time to get the eight bolts out.

Milwaukee is releasing a 1" M18 Fuel impact next month with 2000 ft-lbs. I don't know what the price point is. Their 1/2" is very impressive.

The half inch fuel smokes my (now old) snapon CT3850HO.  I cant imagine a battery 1 inch.  

With air guns a 1" will throw nuts off that a 7ft breaker bar and acetylene wont even touch, i stripped a lotta scrapyard trucks.  


The recovery time on the stacked air tanks isnt bad at all.  If its not ready i pick my nose a little longer then try again.

that seems to be tedious!

I have a good mid size compressor but always lacked the big impact gun. One day i was in a quarry of a friend and saw that he had 3 identical 1" impact guns laying there. I ask him why he needs 3 guns? he told me that he bought them as a package deal at an auction in the states so i ask him if he sells me one and how much? give me 200$ and it's yours. they're not from any name brand but for the 5 times i use that thing in the year it sure works perfect.

I have the big gun and the big compressor, but still had to torch a majority of them.Either the head was rounded off ,or the nuts on the link side would spin,so you end up cutting anyway.
