Milwaukee, WI – Utility equipment: Milwaukee Tool continues to deliver new levels of performance, run-time, and durability for the professional with the introduction of the first cordless High Torque Impact Wrenches to deliver true pneumatic performance without the hassle of a compressor and hose. Delivering up to 750 ft-lbs of max fastening torque, the M18 FUEL™ High Torque Impact Wrenches are the most powerful cordless tools of their kind, delivering unmatched performance, durability and versatility.
“Traditionally, users facing repetitive high torque fastening applications have needed to resort to corded or pneumatic impact wrenches due to run-time and power challenges,” says Mike Monteleone, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “With the combination of M18 FUEL™ technology and an optimized impact mechanism, these new tools can challenge all cordless, corded, and even pneumatic competitors.”
As with all M18 FUEL™ products, the new High Torque Impact Wrenches were engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, M18 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations — the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software— that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability.
The POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power more efficiently, giving the new tools the ability to deliver up to 750 ft-lbs of max fastening torque for performance that outperforms even their corded and pneumatic counterparts. With up to 3X more motor durability than the competition, the POWERSTATE™ Brushless motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool to deliver years of maintenance-free performance with no wearable components, no losses due to vibration and less heat build-up.
REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence hardware and software, the most advanced electronic system on the market, allows the user to choose between two fastening modes with the Proprietary 2-Mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature. Mode #2 offers user’s the most output torque of any impact wrench on the market (500-750 ft-lbs Max fastening torque, depending on the tool), and Mode #1 is for applications where over-torqueing a fastener may be a concern (100-375 ft-lbs Max fastening torque, depending on the tool). In addition, REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence integrates full-circle communication between tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging.
Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 batteries provide up to 2X more run-time and recharges than standard Lithium-Ion batteries and deliver best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions. With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 battery operates cooler and performs in climates below 0°F/-18°C with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job.
Available in October of 2013, the new M18 FUEL™ High Torque Impact Wrenches will be available in 4 unique anvil / mechanism combinations, and are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology.
