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.
It’s clear that when it comes to cordless full size 18V/20V like the IQv 20V Tools are still the most popular however more compact tools are quickly becoming the tool of choice for many. This is especially true for professional tools where there might have been some initial hesitation to go for a smaller lower voltage tool a few years ago. Today this category has really exploded in terms of performance, runtime, compactness and variety of applications. Ingersoll Rand may be late to the 12V party but it looks as though they are bringing a full line of very impressive compact IQv professional tools to the mix.
