Milwaukee Tool unveils the most versatile impact wrenches in the industry with the next generation of their M18 FUEL™ Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches. Packing up to 650 foot-pounds of torque while weighing in at only 5.1 pounds, these new impacts offer the best power-to-weight ratio in their class for the most access in tight spaces and faster bolt removal.

“In 2017 we launched mid-torque impact wrenches, solutions that bridged the size and power gap between small compact impact wrenches and extremely powerful high torque impact wrenches. Now we’re delivering the next generation of these mid-torque impact wrenches, significantly decreasing the length while increasing the torque!” said Eric Rusch, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.

“What will surprise most users about these new M18 FUEL™ Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches is their ability to tackle more than 90% of the daily applications – making this their go-to solution and allowing them to only reach for their high torque impacts when absolutely necessary.”

While up to three pounds lighter than other high torque impact wrenches, these mid-torque impact wrenches are equipped with a POWERSTATE™ Brushless motor that generates the torque and speed needed to perform many of the same tasks, such as removing large bolts or lug nuts.  Additionally, as the most compact tools in their class, they can easily access stubborn fasteners in spaces where larger impact wrenches can’t fit.  REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance and protects the tools against overloads, overheating, and over-discharge. The M18™ REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack ensures these tools provide more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack.

The four-mode DRIVE CONTROL™ offers greater precision with a range of pre-set RPM and IPM levels, selectable from a single button on the tool. By selecting Mode 4 when the tool is in forward, AUTO SHUT-OFF™ control applies no more than 35 ft-lbs of torque for hand-tight fastening applications to prevent overtightening. When the tool is in reverse, Mode 4 delivers Bolt Removal control, which delivers full torque output and then decreases RPMs once the bolt is loosened to prevent fastener drops.

For increased visibility in confined and low-light workspaces, these tools are also designed with tri-LEDs that deliver brighter light with less shadows.

Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL™ Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches are fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200 power tool products.
