Milwaukee Tool Corporation continues has introduced the industry’s first 18V compact impact wrenches with over 200 ft.-lbs. of torque.
As part of the new M18 Fuel line that launched in 2012, Milwaukee says new tools feature Milwaukee’s exclusive combination of the Powerstate brushless motor, Redlink Plus electronic intelligence and Redlithium 2.0/XC4.0 Battery Pack. The company says the wrenches deliver up to two times more runtime, up to 50 percent more torque and a proprietary 3-mode drive-control feature.
“Providing this versatility allows the user to switch between Modes 1, 2 and 3 to match the power and speed to the application at hand,” says Tom Simeone, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “For example, a mechanical contractor may use Mode 1 for installing u-bolts, Mode 2 for installing smaller couplings and Mode 3 for installing larger couplings.”
All M18 Fuel products include a new multi-voltage charger. The wrenches will be available in March 2013. For more information, go to www.milwaukeetool.com/system/m18-fuel.
