BROOKFIELD, Wis. — Milwaukee Tool has introduced the next generation of M18 Fuel ½-inch High Torque impact wrenches.
Designed for the trades, the high-torque impact wrenches deliver more power, speed and durability in application while maximizing ergonomics with light and compact designs, the company said.
"The next-generation M18 Fuel High Torque Impact Wrenches raise the bar from what is expected out of high torque impact wrenches. Through research in the field, we saw how users required not only more power but a solution with more versatility and features to improve efficiency," Eric Rusch, director of product marketing for Milwaukee Tool, said.
"Milwaukee is disrupting the impact wrench industry again as these new wrenches deliver the best combination of power, speed, length, and feature set — providing the best high torque impact wrench solutions for our users."
The product line includes:
- M18 Fuel ½-inch High Torque Impact Wrench with Friction Ring, which provides users with a combination of power and size to maximize productivity, the company said, delivering torque up to 1,500 ft.-lbs. with a M18 Redlithium XC5.0 battery and nut-busting power of up to 1,600 ft.-lbs. with Milwaukee's new M18 Redlithium Forge XC6.0 battery.
The tool allows more access in tight spaces and offers increased ease of use in application, with fast removal speeds, the company said.
A complete redesign from the previous generation, the M18 Fuel ½-inch High Torque Impact Wrench is designed with new materials, processing and designs across its' motor and electronics, the company said.
A new integrated battery isolation system controls high-frequency vibrations to enable battery movement, preventing damage and offering a constant connection between the battery and tool when in use and a new proprietary anvil material offers durability.
- M18 Fuel ½-inch High Torque Impact Wrench with Pin Detent provides up to 900 ft.-lbs. of fastening torque and delivers up to 1,100 ft.-lbs. of nut-busting torque when paired with a M18 Redlithium XC5.0 battery pack. The cordless impact wrench measures at the shortest length in its class to deliver the lightest and most compact solution for users, the company said. An integrated battery isolation system ensures a secure connection and controls vibration transmitted to the pack.
The new tools are fully compatible with the entire M18 line, which now offers more than 250 power tool solutions.
