Milwaukee is truly doing some amazing things in the world of auto mechanic tools. Most of you have been around long enough to have been forced to work with pneumatic tools in your shops, and probably still are.

And in strict Milwaukee fashion they have not overlooked even the smallest details with groundbreaking advancements.

Clearly Ingersoll Rand has a focus on mechanics, being the name brand in air tools for many years we were not surprised when their first cordless impact W7150 hit the market years ago it was truly innovative. Even years later when we compared high torque impacts (see post here) it held its own pro cordless brands with Milwaukee, Makita, Dewalt and others. With a narrow focus on mechanics IR wants to be the leaders in Impact wrenches, Air Tools or Cordless so we were not surprised they would come out with the new W7152 which promises best in class 1500 ft-lbs Nut Busting torque.
The Ingersoll Rand 20V IQv Impact Wrench is the most powerful cordless ½” on the market today so it is not surprising it has also become one of the most popular. All that power comes with at a price, with the 1 battery kit W7150-K1 ($402) and 2 battery kit W7150-K2 ($513) however from now until the end of July each of these kits come with an additional FREE 20v battery BL2010 ($149).
