With a small 12v air compressor from princess auto and a tire patch kit and you can repair a flat on the side of the road in 10 minutes and be back on it in no time. If you're emergency jack allows a socket to raise and lower it as well it's even faster. Cheaper investment than CAA for flat repair.
I don't know about 10 minutes boss... Takes you a couple of minutes alone just getting set up.

I went to the ft. Sask store in Alberta and the lady said they might have one or 2 on a truck that showed up they needed to off-load.

Something is buggy here me thinks.
This is always the case with HD--had the same thing happen many times.

Either they just can't find it 'cause it's up somewhere on the rafters (or whatever you want to call those cages), or it's phantom stock. Sometimes they will show it a certain way as you say, as if it's in-transit or on a truck on the loading dock so you can wait a week or so and check again but IME whatever the item is, never shows up. Stores in certain geo areas seem to be worse for this than others, not sure what causes it but it's common.

Thx ES_Revenge. I bugged a CSR at the store on the floor and she tracked down a couple boxes up on high racks.

Finally have the 1/2" and found a 3/8" to help with my vehicle teardowns in the future. Managed to get the 3/8" stubby for $99. Thumbs Up Sign

Which store was that at? I’ve been looking for a set in the GTA but no luck.

I bought one in Edmonton store, just wondering to see if Auto position would do the right torque, instead of over and under torque. How can this machine know how to torque 80lb or 100lb being in auto mode? Thank you

It isn't capable of doing that, and isn't meant for that. Auto mode will spin until it feels resistance. So, if you hand thread the nuts, then use auto to snug them up, thats okay; but then you finish the job with the proper tool.

Get a $20 torque wrench from Princess Auto to set your torque properly.

Haha yes! I was able to bring it back no issues. Bought from the Calgary country Hills location and sold the sockets for 20$... Extra sweet deal for me as I saved the QST! Ty op.

Hello,
I was thinking of returning this, First I thought of using this but 2nd thought If costco would do for $40 why bother . I don't see any other usage of this tool except for wheel change. So If anyone wants it in Edmonton , I can sell for the same price I paid to homedepot($149+GST)
