Milwaukee Tool has announced its next generation M18 Fuel high torque impact wrenches. It delivers up to 1,400 ft.-lbs. of torque in a compact, cordless design.
While the first generation of this impact wrench answered many needs, said Eric Rusch, senior product manager for Milwaukee Tool, some “applications like rusted and corroded fasteners still called for the performance of pneumatic.” Now, “we are able to deliver a solution that is powerful enough to replace pneumatic and corded altogether while being the most compact high torque impact wrench in the industry.”
The new models include one with half-inch friction ring another with a half-inch pin detent. Both are designed with a four-mode drive control feature, providing the user with the versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed to the application at hand. A new bolt removal mode provides maximum torque to remove stubborn bolts or nuts. When it senses the bolt or nut is broken free, the tool then shifts to 750 rpm for control when removing fasteners.
It will be available in September 2017.
