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.

Ingersoll Rand IQv12 Cordless FREE Battery BL1203 Promo

IQv12 Deal

We had originally posted on the new Ingersoll Rand 12v cordless tool line before the SEMA show in October which has got many folks very excited. Launching a more compact tool line targeted at the same professional mechanical trades the bigger brother IQv20 tool are built for seems like a very smart idea to us. There are a lot of applications that don’t require all the power of those large units but still want the durability for everyday use. To kick the new line off right Ingersoll Rand and Ohio Power Tool have teamed up to provide an extra FREE 12v battery BL1203 ($60 value) with every IQv12 kit purchased until the end of the year or while supplies last, whichever comes first.

For more information on Ingersoll Rand tools give the professionals at Ohio Power Tool 800-242-4424 a call and they will be happy to help you out whether air tools, compressors, accessories or whatever.

High Torque Impact Wrenches – Milwaukee M18 2763-22 vs Ingersoll Rand IQv20 W7150-K2

IR vs Milwaukee

Probably the most anticipated Milwaukee M18 FUEL brushless tool to launch this year was the 2763-22 ($429, Ohio Power Tool) ½” high torque impact wrench with the friction ring. This friction ring model is really geared at the automotive market vs the 2762-22 ($429, Ohio Power Tool) which is pretty much the same but uses the detent pin (sockets cannot fall off 100’ in the air) and is geared more at steel erection and construction. If the Milwaukee ½” impact is going to play in the automotive world it is going to go right up against the reigning champ in that space which is the Ingersoll Rand IQv20 ½” Impact W7150-K2 ($513, Ohio Power Tool). We took the two head to head and this is what we’ve found. (more…)

Ingersoll Rand IQv12 Cordless 12V Tools to Launch at SEMA 2013

IR IQv 12V Cordless
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.

Ingersoll Rand 2135TiMax Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Limited Edition Impact

2135timax Anniversary

Call me a sucker but I love it when tool companies make limited edition tool runs and nobody does it better than Ingersoll Rand. The extremely popular ½” impact 2135TiMax ($299, Ohio Power Tool) is now celebrating its 10th anniversary this year in production. Over this same time frame we have seen some great advances in cordless tools, like the Ingersoll Rand IQv W7150-K1 ($424, Ohio Power Tool) but when it comes to pneumatic power the 2135TiMax is still the industry leader with its compact size and extremely high torque output. The limited edition tool also comes with a very nice IR pen light (LED of course) and nice IR metallic badge that would look great on any tool box. (more…)

Ingersoll Rand 20V Cordless Tools Welcome Their New Additions

Ingersoll rand 20 volt cordless ratchet wrench

The Ingersoll Rand IQv20 Impact Wrench is a pretty awesome tool. In fact, it is so awesome, that I have fielded calls from customers who have told me that this tool is far too strong for them, and they need an older, not-quite-as-awesome version of it to do their job. While it is true that the crushing 1100 ft-lbs. of torque that the W7150 offers may not be ideal for every situation, the older and less powerful tools in the Ingersoll-Rand IQv Cordless were never very widely adopted, and are possibly on the way to a phase out after these new tools hit the market.
