Is big nasty astro 4980 air hammer worth it?? – Auto Repair Chat

After receiving many messages asking me if "BIG NASTY" is really as good as I say it is I decided to make this short video. The Astro 4980 is indeed the nastiest air hammer I have ever used. I have both MAC Tools and Snap-On long barrel air hammer. They do not even compare to the power of this this beast!

    I picked one up for my shop. Got to use it today. Wow. Extreme violence. Threw out my old harbor freight. This baby earned its spot in the tool box. Wow

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hans Müller says:

    Proof is in the Putin?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alton Rowell says:

    I will never forget the first time time I used a cp 717.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alton Rowell says:

    I use a cp 717

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bind the Devil Loose The Angels says:

    I showed this video to my Snapon rep today he didn't say much. Other than the "specs are basically the same"

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim's videos says:

    In fairness the swivel joint didn't do the Snap-On one any favours.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Osborn says:

    I just purchased one of the 4980s for my son who is a diesel mechanic . Thanks for doing this video, it helped me decide which way to go in the air hammer selection process.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Martin says:

    Is the quick attachment sold separately, I imagine it is.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerseyhighlander says:

    What's the deal? NOBODY has this in stock anymore? Is it made in China & caught in the import clog????

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yuri Shepherd says:

    could someone use a rotary hammer instead of an air hammer?
    looking to make my first purchase and leaning electric bc I have the batter packs

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vance Duke says:

    i just spent all day pressing one out. wtf!!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris ferebee says:

    I know this is an old video but what kind of air compressor would you recommend to use with BIG NASTY?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Digitalphantom01 says:

    So… anyone want to buy an old clapped out snap-on air hammer. Needs a good home 😉

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonny Snipes says:

    Do they have a cordless battery version of that?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gordon Richardson says:

    Congrats on your custom 498K edition!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy shuler says:

    Do you run big nasty on a regulated air source?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Megalocade says:

    I bought one of those astros a while back and it's incredible.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WhalerGA says:

    Big Nasty is just begging for a song to be written about it.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gizzy guzzi says:

    That snap on polisher loosened it up for you.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Marr says:

    Yeah. Snap-on is too expensive and less power. My $140 air hammer can do better than that snap on. At least, you got a better air hammer for cheap.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars UpNorth says:

    Better even when you ran the compressor down with the snap on to the point it kicked on and it still took it out.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jordan Hager says:

    Went to buy one on amazon after this and see your video on the listing. That's pretty cool

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vlad C says:

    So considered getting the big nasty but the snap on guy gave me the ph3050b for $275 which I could not pass up and traded my old ingersol. The snap on air hammer does not have the same power that even my ingersol had.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jhitt79 says:

    I can hear all the snap-on guys crying all the from my house.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars griff Hall says:

    Big NASTYYYYY FOR THE WIN..
    I'M TOOLING UP BECAUSE OF E.O AND ASTRO

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Janet Pandolfi says:

    I want to buy a big nasty but where do I get the quick connect at I can't find it any where??? Thanks Eric! can you post a link?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Cohen says:

    you can't fool me that Snapon loosened it up so big nasty could finish it up

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark hilliker says:

    Ok I’ll be buying one. Not the first video of big nastey ive seen. But the time has come.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lovetolearn 52 says:

    Proof's in the pudding lol. I thought that's what he said

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Norbert H says:

    what about Ingersoll Rand 121 is this any good for a .401 hammer ??

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Doe says:

    Hey, I'm wondering if you have another link to the hammer bit? I cant find the astro one, is there another brand youd recommend? Thanks! Love the videos

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rohksie says:

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CHOSENITE COMMUNISM says:

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jpierro officers says:

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bobsteroid says:

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan MacEwen says:
