Milwaukee M18 FUEL Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches

Milwaukee M18 2861-20

It’s no secret among mechanics there is a large migrations away from air tools towards cordless options. New impacts can generate a ton of power in some case too much however they can also be bulky and don’t always offer enough control of the power. These new “Mid-Torque” M18 FUEL Impacts provide a solution with plenty of torque needed for most applications but much closer in size to their compact impacts with more options for control of the power. These new 2860-22 ($399, ½” pin) and 2861-22 ($399, ½” ring) both offer 450 ft lbs torque and should fill the need for many tradesmen.

Ingersoll Rand IQv 20V Brushless Impacts W5132 & W5152

Ingersoll W5132

For the folks at IR the focus for their IQv cordless tools is clearly very much automotive. It’s no secret cordless tools are cannibalizing much of the pneumatic tool business so to stay competitive traditional air tool brands are going to need to figure out how to compete with products designed for the trade. We like what Ingersoll Rand has done with these new brushless impact tools, 3/8” W5132 & 1/2″ W5152 which will replace the W5130 & W5150 respectively.

Ingersoll Rand Ultra-Compact Impact Wrenches 35MAX & 15QMAX

IR 15QMAX

While the trend to have impact wrenches with more and more torque certainly continues as we’ve seen in our recent ½” Air Impact Shoot Out. That being said there are also many professional out there willing to take a little less power for a smaller more compact tools. After all what good is more power if you can’t fit the tool into the work space. IR already has some great impacts for very tight spaces with the Hammerhead 3/8” 2015MAX and ½” 2025MAX ($249, each) however those top out at 180 ft.lbs. so can’t replace your everyday impacts. These new IR Compact Impacts 3/8” 15QMAX and ½” 35MAX ($139, each) look to be the best of both worlds with compact design but solid power up to 450 ft.lbs. which will handle a wide range of common applications.

Cordless 1/2” Impact Wrenches High Torque – Ingersoll, Milwaukee, Dewalt, Makita

brushless impact wrenches

As we continue to work our way through comparing all the top cordless tools (previous posts Hammer Drills, Grinders, SDS-Plus Hammers & Recip Saws) the next logical step for us was Cordless High Torque Impact Wrenches.

Taking a look at the 4 most popular models we have the 20V Ingersoll Rand IQv W7150-K22 ($459, 5.0Ah), M18 Milwaukee FUEL 2763-22 ($439, 5.0Ah), 20V Dewalt Brushless DCF899P2 ($429, 5.0Ah w/detent pin) and 18V Makita Brushless XWT08Z ($239, bare). Hopefully everyone understands at this point, 18V “nominal” & 20V “max” are the exactly the same thing, so we are comparing apple to apple. We will also compare these top cordless ½” impact wrenches with 3 of the most popular ½” pneumatic impacts (previous post) we ran on the same Skidmore torque tester a few weeks ago. Looking at all 7 models together we will hopefully be able to get some definitive answers on the Cordless Impact Wrench vs Air Impact Wrench debate.

Air Impact Torque Test 1/2″ – IR vs CP vs Jet

Impacts IR vs CP vs Jet

One of the biggest questions we always get with pneumatic tools, or any tools for that matter, which one is more powerful? When it comes to air tools there are several different numbers you will see on the boxes and it’s clear manufacturers are not using any sort of standardization to report these numbers. Torque is also affected by application, air pressure and other environmental conditions so getting an exact number is not always easy. All 3 of these impact wrenches are their respective brands top dogs, composite construction and have been launched within the last year. (**3/15/16 – We also added new testing for 1/2″ Cordless Impacts vs Air Impacts)

Working Torque: The range of torque to be used on a daily basis both in forward/reverse. For instance your average full-size pickup lug nut should be put on about 120-180 ft. lbs. and may require much more to take it off depending on how & when it was put on. This should give a range which you would get from switching the tool from the lowest setting to highest. Jet JAT-121 ($229) reports a 50-550 ft-lbs, CP7749 ($229) goes from 100-522 ft-lbs., IR 2235TiMAX ($279) does not report a “working torque” range only max torque 930 ft-lbs. and “Nut Busting Torque”.

Ingersoll Rand to Add 50% Impact Torque with PowerSockets

IR PowerSocket

This is a very interesting new socket concept from Ingersoll Rand which we can’t honestly say we fully understand how it generates so much additional torque, then again we didn’t do so hot in physics class. For launch the IR PowerSocket is only going to be available in 19mm size for crank shafts, lug nut removal and other applications. With this socket a standard 1/2″ impact can perform pretty close to a 3/4″ impact more than justifying the $66 price point of the S64M19L-PS. We would imagine if this is a success we will see various other size PowerSockets to follow.

Ingersoll Rand 2235 Series 1350 FT-LBS from 1/2” Impact

Ingersol Rand 2235timax

Just announced and planned to be on shelves shortly Ingersoll Rand will be adding some new 1/2″ titanium impact to their lineup. The 2235 Series will feature the 2235TiMAX ($299), 2235TiMAX-2 ($309), 2235QTiMAX ($309) & 2235QTiMAX-2 ($319), all of which will product 1350 FT-LBS “Nut Busting” torque at 8500 RPM. Starting at 4.6 lbs the new 2235TiMAX will be slightly heavier than the 2135TiMAX at 3.95 lbs and about 1/4″ longer but for an extra 250 ft-lbs torque probably worth the slightly larger size. These new Ingersoll Rand Impact Wrenches are available to order on Ohio Power Tool with the 2135 series tools at serious discounts. More info to follow!

Ingersoll Rand IQv20 Cordless Hammerhead W5330 3/8” & W5350 1/2” Impacts

Ingersoll Rand W5350

For years there has been a struggle to get the torque of an impact wrench together with the functionality and reach of a ratchet. A few years ago Ingersoll Rand was able to marry the two together nicely with the IR Hammerhead Impacts. At 180 ft lbs these units produce a significantly more torque than other 3/8” or 1/2″ confined space tools, several times a traditional ratchet. Ingersoll Rand will be launching new IQv20 Cordless right angle impact tools in Mid-May (pre-sale starting May 1 HERE) although it does not look like the cordless tools will share the Hammerhead trade name. The W5330 3/8” & W5350 1/2″ tools do look almost identical (from the knees up) and will have the same 180 ft. lbs. torque rating as the pneumatic Hammerhead tools currently. (more…)

Ingersoll Rand IQv20 Cordless Grease Gun LUB5130

IQv20 LUB5130-K1
The Ingersoll Rand IQv line of tools just recently expanded greatly with the IQv12 Series launch at SEMA so we were not expecting to see anything else for some time. News of the IQv20 Grease Gun LUB5130-K1 ($349) came as a very nice surprise and a very logical next step for the IR 20 volt platform. For those on the IQv20 platform already there is also the LUB5130 ($219) as a bare tool.
