Milwaukee M12 FUEL Stubby Impact Wrenches

M12 Stubby Impact Wrench

The biggest thing to happen to Air Impact Wrenches over the past few years has been the stubby! We’ve seen the top air tool lines from IR, CP and other launch these compact tools with big success but nothing in a cordless versions, Until Now! Welcome the M12 FUEL Stubby Impact Wrenches in 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2″ versions. Super compact size at 5.1” with impressive torque at 250 ft-lbs, these are going to lead to even less air hoses on the shop floor.

At the Milwaukee Big Launch Event NPS18 a few months back we got our first look at these and it made a ton of sense, where the M18 serves the need for mid & high torque needs, the M12 platform is perfect for super compact stubby impacts. We love that Milwaukee doesn’t just look at the M12 line up for cheaper home owner type tools (while there is some of that), they really are building out the line for professionals and applications where compact design and light weight is key. Looking at the M12 FUEL Ratchets, M12 Rivet Gun, M12 Bandsaw, and many more they are really setting the bar for what to expect from these smaller tools.

All 8 new tool options will be available within a month or so, available for PRE-SALE now from Ohio Power Tool. For more info check out the Milwaukee Tool Press release below and official video.

MILWAUKEE, WI – By harnessing the power, performance, and run-time of M12 FUEL™ technology*, Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the industry’s first cordless stubby impacts, the M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impact Wrenches. The most compact cordless impact wrenches on the market, Milwaukee’s new Stubby Impacts allow more access in tight spaces while delivering the power to complete many of the most demanding tasks.

“During applications that allow limited access, many professionals have resorted to reaching for pneumatic stubby impacts. However, the limited portability, maintenance, and noise associated with pneumatic units has been a frustration for these users,” said Eric Rusch, Senior Product Manager. “Due to our extensive research with users on the jobsite and in the shop, we saw an opportunity to truly disrupt this space by creating a cordless solution that not only boasts the benefits of no hoses and no maintenance, but is also designed with the compact size and power to tackle these types of applications.”

Available in 1/4″, 3/8” and 1/2″ size, the new M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impacts are the most compact impact wrenches on the market. Measuring no more than 5.1” in length, their short sizes allows greater access in tight spaces and provides unparalleled productivity to users.

When paired with Milwaukee’s REDLINK™ Intelligence and REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack, the Stubby Impacts have the power and speed to tackle various applications without dips in performance.

Designed with a four-mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature, users have the versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed to the application at hand. All four modes allow for precision control, with the 4th featuring an Auto-Shut Off Mode to prevent over-fastening of bolts.

With no hoses, compressors, or cords, users will experience less fatigue, as well as more maneuverability and portability during use. True to Milwaukee’s legendary promise of ‘Nothing but Heavy Duty,’ the tools feature aluminum housing and premium anvil materials to withstand shop and jobsite use. The combination of no wearable motor components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership. In addition, a premium rubber overmold withstands corrosive materials and provides increased comfort when in use.

Available September 2018, the new M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impacts join the largest sub-compact cordless system in the industry, now offering more than 90 professional solutions focused on power, productivity, and portability.
