Milwaukee Tool has introduced an impact wrench for users who fasten up to 1 3/4-in. bolts. The cordless M18 FUEL 1-in. High Torque Impact Wrench with One-Key delivers up to 1,800 ft.-lb. of torque while remaining 7 lb. lighter than other corded options currently available, the company says.
“The M18 FUEL 1-in. High Torque Impact Wrench is the epitome of what we’re able to accomplish through M18 FUEL cordless technology. It’s not only the first of its kind but it’s also the most powerful cordless impact in the world. This tremendous power breaks down so many barriers on the jobsite and in the shop,” says Eric Rusch, senior product manager, Milwaukee Tool.
“Users will no longer need their compressors and generators, nor will they need to spend the time and money needed to maintain them. They’ll experience much less fatigue because this tool is much lighter than what they have been using during these fastening applications. And they’ll be able to perform their jobs without the interference of cords or hoses,” Rusch says.
The new impact wrench includes the PowerState brushless motor, RedLithium battery pack and RedLink Plus intelligence. Milwaukee says it also reengineered the motor and electronics packages to deliver seamless communication with the battery and the best performance catered to this tool and its applications. One-Key provides the ability to customize, track and manage the impact wrench, as well as set a repeatable torque, the company says.
