Ingersoll Rand Air Ratchets – 4 Models, 1105MAX & 105 Series

Recently IR Tools announced 4 new air ratchet models. I haven’t had a chance to test them out but the numbers look pretty impressive, especially for the MAX Series ratchets. Check out the YouTube video and full IR press release below. These ratchets and many others are also available now from Ohio Power Tool, see Air Ratchets.

Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in automotive and industrial tools and equipment, has launched the 1105MAX and 105 Series mini ratchets in both 1/4" and 3/8" square drive sizes, offering improved power, control and comfort.

The new 1105MAX Series mini composite air ratchets join the Ingersoll Rand MAX Series of tools established by the 2135QTiMAX Impactool™. Building on the best-in-class legacy, these new tools deliver a high torque of 41 Nm (30 ft-lb) and a free speed of 300 rpm. The easy-to-operate power regulator is very convenient for sensitive applications, such as small or plastic fasteners. In addition, the feather-touch lever allows better control of speed and power. These tools also feature a composite handle that ensures maximum comfort and provides insulation from cold compressed air. The 1105MAX Series are available in two drive sizes, 1/4" for the 1105MAX-D2 and 3/8" for the 1105MAX-D3.

The new 105 Series mini air ratchets also provides improved torque at 34 Nm (25 ft-lb) and a free speed of 250 rpm combining great performance with price-competitive value. They are available in two drive sizes, 1/4" for the 105-D2 and 3/8" for the 105-D3.

Both ratchets series feature a unique head construction that provides improved durability and more consistent performance over the life of the tool. The tools also share a low-profile forward/reverse control that has a wide diameter for easy gripping. In addition, the design also eliminates accidental changing of directions in confined spaces.

The new Ingersoll Rand ratchet models are an ideal solution for a wide range of vehicle service applications. They are perfect for car maintenance, mechanical repairs or body panel removal.
