Milwaukee M18 FUEL Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches

Share With:

Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver new levels of performance, run-time, and durability for the professional with the introduction of M18 FUEL™ 1/2” Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches. The new tools are similar in size and weight to compact impact wrenches, but deliver 450ft-lbs of fastening torque and 600ft-lbs of nut-busting torque, outperforming some competitive impact wrenches in the High Torque class.

M18 FUEL™ 1/2" Mid-Torque Impact Wrench Kit w/ Pin Detent“As the power tool industry evolves and expectations increase, users continue to demand fastening solutions that provide more power in a compact package,” said Eric Rusch, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “In 2012 when we launched our M18 FUEL™ High Torque Impact Wrenches, we set an industry benchmark for power with cordless impact wrenches that were capable of torque up to 1200ft-lbs. However, not all users require the extreme power of our High Torque Impacts. Through our field research, it was evident that there was a need to provide a solution with more torque than our M18 FUEL™ Compact Impact Wrenches while benefiting from a lighter weight, more compact solution than our High Torque Impacts. With plenty of power to tackle a wide array of heavy fastening applications, the Mid-Torque is up to 4” shorter and weighs 2 lbs less than competitive tools in the high torque class, allowing more access into tight spaces and reducing user fatigue.”

The new models will include an M18 FUEL™ Mid-Torque Impact Wrench with ½” Pin Detent and an M18 FUEL™ Mid-Torque Impact Wrench with ½” Friction Ring. Both are also designed with a three-mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature, providing the user with the versatility to switch between Modes 1, 2, and 3 to match the power and speed to the application at hand.  Similar to other M18 FUEL™ Impact Wrenches, these solutions have a specialized rubber overmold material that provides ultimate comfort during prolonged use while lasting longer against corrosive materials.

As with all M18 FUEL™ products*, the new tools feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— to deliver unmatched performance, durability and run-time.
