Ingersoll Rand has listened to their end users who demanded more performance out of the 3/8 and ½ inch compact impact wrenches. They have delivered on an updated line of 20V tools with focus on power, control, durability and access. Both come in 1 or 2 battery kits as well as bare tools in 3/8″ or 1/2″ so there’s something for someone at any level. Let’s dive into what they’ve done—and as always you can pre-order these new tools and everything IR you’ll need at Ohio Power Tool.
There is no denying it brushless tools are taking over. The extended runtime, compact size, longer motor life and higher power output make the choice obvious. Makita was one of the first to really push their brushless impact driver with the 3 Speed LXDT01 ($295, Amazon) which includes (2) 3.0Ah batteries. Their latest brushless impact driver keeps the same basic brushless motor but loses the 3 speed option and lowers the cost LXDT08 ($275, Amazon).
