Ingersoll Rand, has expanded their MAX family of air tools with the all new 2145QiMAX Impactool. Designed to deliver best-in-class power and industrial-grade durability where technicians and maintenance managers need it most, the 2145QiMAX impact is a worthy addition to the Ingersoll Rand MAX tool lineup. The new impact features a power-to-weight ratio; weighing just 7.4 lbs, the 2145QiMAX delivers 1350 ft-lb of maximum reverse torque. This is all made possible by a seven-vane air motor that’s 16 per cent more efficient than its predecessor. Like its MAX family brethren, the 2145QiMAX features a patented four-position power regulator dial, a feather-touch trigger for greater control, and a patented one-hand forward/reverse mechanism for easy operation. The 2145QiMAX utilizes the original, perfected Ingersoll Rand twin hammer mechanism, which features proprietary advanced metallurgy for increased performance and longer tool life, and an innovative new steel wear plate that provides extreme wear resistance. The impact also features a new easy-to-clean inlet prescreen that captures debris and is easily serviced by tool operators, along with an improved grease fitting for easy maintenance which reduces down time while increasing tool life and performance.
