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.
