The "cheap alternative" breaker bar introduces a significant risk.
The cheapest HF electric impact wrench is $49.99, but if buying one, I would instead opt for the Porter Cable impact on Amazon at $79.99Try HF for an inexpensive lectric impact gun, I know lots of folks put them down but if you are not using them daily should be OK
I actually see 4+ stars for the cheapest ($49.99) HF impact wrench.Harbor Freight, 3 1/2 stars or better I will try it, no stars beware. Wish it was not all China made, would love to always support our falling Country.
Also rear ballast would be better than filled tires if you are using a mmm (belly mower) for lawn.Instead of filling tires for ballast, buy/make a simple 'carryall', toss weight into a box on a skid. use that when NEEDED. Silly to have loaded tires when not needed and terrible when the BH is on.
Been using that bar for more than 10 years with no problems. Never needed a cheater pipe.The "cheap alternative" breaker bar introduces a significant risk.
Depending on how much brute force is applied (with a cheater pipe?), it is possible to snap a wheel stud/bolt off.
