    No more than we use a 3/4 drive set I have tried for years to get by with a cheap brand. I gave up last year and bought a Craftsman set and have not broke a socket yet.

    I have used northern tools my self, They are not that bad for a tool that will be weathered, For the price vers not bad, I keep a good snap-on set as back up and tough situations, If you are going to be using it for tightening belt the it wont be bad,

    I wouldn't get any thing that needs to take any torque there
    But it's not a bad place and you can some good deals.

    Thanks for the feedback, they also got this nonimpact set for 90 bucks. hmmm, hard to buy without picking it up and seeing it, but seems like a heck of a deal.

    the non impact have a lifetime guarantee, but don't see it on the impacts, have used impacts from northern before and have yet to break one, even taking off a rusty hitch ball with a 3/4 air impact.
    You can't fix stupid
