Milwaukee Tool has introduced M12 Fuel Right Angle Impact Wrenches.
Available in 3/8-in. and 1/2-in. sizes, the wrenches are equipped with a long body profile, providing more access and control in hard to reach applications. The low-profile head of only 2.8 in. in length fits into tight spaces and enables users to be more productive, decreasing the need for socket extensions commonly used with pistol-grip impact tools, the company says.
“When completing applications that allow limited access, professionals are limited to using pneumatic or brushed-motor right angle impacts. However, the limited portability and torque associated with these solutions has been a frustration for these users,” says Eric Rusch, group product manager, Milwaukee Tool.
“Due to our extensive research with users on the jobsite and in the shop, we saw an opportunity to create a cordless solution that not only boasts the benefits of no compressors, hoses and routine maintenance, but is also equipped with a low-profile design and higher torque to tackle these types of applications,” Rusch says.
The M12 Fuel Right Angle Impacts’ PowerState Brushless Motor delivers up to 220 ft.-lb. of torque, removing stubborn bolts and fasteners. When paired with Milwaukee’s RedLink Intelligence and RedLithium CP2.0 battery pack, the wrenches have the power and speed to tackle various applications without dips in performance, Milwaukee says.
Designed with a four-mode Drive Control feature, users have the control and versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed necessary for the application. All four modes allow for maximum precision control, with the fourth featuring an auto-shut off mode to prevent over-fastening of bolts, and bolt removal mode for more control after bolt breakaway, the company says.
