Personal view, but I'd treat electric impact wrenches with caution. So easy to cross-thread/over-tighten/strip thread etc. Hand wrench and torque wrench would be my recommendation.
Thanks, I'll give it a try and save myself some cash by getting someone else to do it.
Been using the impact wrench for many years and never had an issue. Five knocks per bolt and your done, but I understand your reccomendation.
