Will a cheap little Harbor Freight pancake compressor run something like this for taking off lug nuts?

  With such a small air storage area, you're going to need something that will supply at least 5cfm @ 90PSI. When sizing an air compressor CFM discharge capacity is king.

  nomonies is absolutely right, but for breaking loose lug nuts, this works fine.  I purchased one in store last Friday and used it while working on my truck.  Had to let my pancake fill back up, but it got the job done.

only "Tool features 300 ft. lbs. of maximum torque"

don't think that is good enough, I had one like that from "Pepboy" it sucks! even using hand have more force than that.

I would get something at LEAST 500 to 700 ft lbs IMO

I just bought a small air impact wrench and bit kit from Sears for my dad. 
It has 400 in* lb of force.
Thing I don't get, is how to you tell how tight you have put the lugs back on?
There is no way to adjust the torque output that I can see.

You must be professional mechanics????
Please show us where we can buy a 500-700  ft. lbs for $15 - and we'll all buy them!

for $15 this is a SCREAMING DEAL just for the hose and coupler!!!!

I just ordered 2 - so now I can throw my 100' hose in the trash - while it's brand new, it's such a disaster to store and unwind then wind back up!

my point is there is no point in getting that b/c it is useless, I would invest a little more to get a higher ft. lbs one.
if you want it just for the hose and coupler then it is fine.

A unit rated 300 is often going to struggle or entirely fail to remove lug nuts on cars in the real world. Most impact wrenches don't actually deliver their rating, except maybe under optimal circumstances with a really fat hose, no quick-disconnect fittings in use, a compressor far exceeding the specified CFM rating, and perfect clean un-corroded un-abused un-bent threads/mating surfaces/etc. None of those conditions ever actually exists, let alone all at the same time.

It still beats manually wrenching the entire length of threads on every lug nut though! I'd rather break it loose by hand with a long breaker bar and then let the impact wrench take it the rest of the way off of nasty dirty corroded threads.

A decent torque wrench costs $10 at Harbor Freight with coupon or on sale. If you do a lot of work with lug nuts and impact wrenches, torque sticks save time. They look like extensions, but they are slightly flexible and tuned to twist up just enough to absorb impacts from the impact wrench once the lug nut has been driven to the specified torque. Even then you should at least spot-check a few with the torque wrench.

400 in-lb is not much. That's only 33 ft-lb. It would be good for driving screws maybe, but it will never move a lug nut at all.

Again, that's your opinion - I've always broken my lugs loose while the tires were on the ground - so I jack up the vehicle and use the impact to spin them off - and then when I'm done, I hand start and impact until it won't impact anymore! then I break out the torque wrench!
So to say it's useless is simply a narrow minded statement.

rated:
I have an impact similar to this I think it is 325# it is pretty useless on lug nuts. I did a big job on my van went out and got an Ingersoll Rand at about 450#, huge difference.

Not thread crapping for $15 bucks you can't hardly go wrong. Just saying if your serious about using it for "heavier" automotive applications it won't work, especially with a small compressor.

Okay, I'll say I think this is backwards too...  If you have an impact wrench, there is absolutely no reason to loosen the lug nuts on the ground, it has no advantage.  If you're going to use an impact wrench, you might as well just raise the car and then remove then one by one with an impact wrench.  As for tightening, if you aren't using a torque stick (as previously mentioned) you shouldn't be using an impact wrench for any purpose other than cinching it up (set to full low and just barely tight (that does save time).  Given that even a weak impact wrench will put out 300 ft lbs and the lug nuts typically shouldn't be torqued beyond about 85 ft lbs, tightening them as much as possible with an impact wrench is a bad idea.

Btw, I bought an electronic torque measuring attachment from HF for about $25 as an alternative to a torque wrench.  I believe they work like beam style torque wrenches but with a digital read-out.  Should be much better than an ordinary torque wrench and not require calibration.

Buy one and try it, let us all know how it turns out.

AGAIN, as STATED in my OP, it is IMO (In MY Opinion) I guess you missed that.

and as another poster said, it is backward and it defy the purpose of having an impact wrench,.....again this is IMO.

anyway, I'm not here to argue with you, you stated your opinion, I stated mine, I just think others who would use should know the limitation and understand it is not going to get the really tight nuts out.

I agree. Cheap crap tools are still crap tools. This is a crap tool. I had something like this for years and never used it, couldn't figure out why it wouldn't take lug nuts off... turns out that it was because the wrench was crap. I put a better one at the end of the same air line and... bang, works great. Some things aren't worth it, even if they are cheap.

For torquing, if you're using an impact wrench, just get a torque stick.

rated:
FYI,

you can adjusted the torque with the twist button near the hose inlet on the bottom of the handle, but it doesn't tell you how much thou.

rated:
They rate these very simialr to stero systems... 500 watts per channel PMP... 300ft/lb peak in a perfect world... Breaking lugnuts loose with a breaker bar and using this to remove them just defeats the purpose of having an impact gun... For the weekend warrior it will be fine with limitations.. If you earn any money using a impact wrench buy something decent... I believe there was an ingersol rand one a few months ago for around $40 that was an great deal.

I have the little Sears Nextec cordless impact driver that works fine for spinning off sticky lug nuts, after they've been started with a lug wrench.

But for the 10 bucks I saw this at today, I had to bite. I needed quick connectors anyway.

In 4 one, thanks! Just what I needed!

If you've got a small compressor, this likely won't speed up lug nut removal. I had a similarly rated impact wrench that struggled with my 3 SFCM compressor.

The fastest I've found (absent a lg. compressor & high torque impact wrench) is to use a breaker bar to loosen, then a drill to spin the nuts off. Use the drill to put the lug nuts back on quickly, then finish with a torque wrench.

Average car torque specs for lugs are typically under 100 ft-lbs. Trucks are around 110-140. A Porsche Carrera GT is around 400. Most tire shops do not follow these specs. They use the impact tool and over tighten them as if they hold the entire vehicle together. They should use a torque wrench. That way we can actually change a flat when we need to.

This isn't a bad tool for a Saturday mechanic. Just don't expect miracles from this on those overtightened lugs.... Come on, it's $10

rated:
Still $10 but may be limited in stock. I agree 300 ft-lb is not enough. I am using a 650 ft-lb ingersol-rand and it has never failed me for the past 5 years, but it cost $240. You get what you paid for, so green for op.
