The mini impact tool range of Ingersoll Rand just got bigger with the introduction of Rand 20V 3/8″ Impact Wrench, which the brand dubbed as the most powerful impact tool in its class. The new mini wrench has the ability to deliver up to 550 ft-lbs breakaway torque and up to 365 ft-lbs of maximum torque, an industry leading output according to Ingersoll Rand.
The impact tool is about 6.5″ long and only weighs 5.1 lbs., which is pretty impressive considering the amount of power that it carries in its compact frame. In addition, the equipment also comes with a highly durable build which makes it an excellent option for the operators in the automotive tool market and other applications with some heavy-duty.
Meanwhile, the users will have an option between 3/8 (W5132) and 1/2 (W5152) drive models, each featuring a 4 power setting that will help you improve your performance and accuracy according to whatever task is at hand. On the back of the IR 20V W5132 impact wrench, you’ll find a power adjustment dial, which can be set to the following 4 modes: hand tight, wrench tight, mid power, and full power.
The “hand tight” setting lets the drive mechanism turn slowly and shuts off at the point where enough resistance is encountered to activate the impact mechanism, making it ideal for light (2 to 9 ft-lbs) fastening tasks. On the other hand, the “wrench tight” (10 to 24 ft-lbs) and “mid power” setup (up to 240 ft-lbs) will allow the user to access more torque that should be more than enough for many applications and tasks in many workshops out there. Finally, the “full power” setting lets the operator access the full range of power of the equipment, giving you up to 340 ft-lbs of torque.
Ingersoll Rand’s claim that the 20V 3/8″ Impact Wrench is the most powerful tool in its class is certainly no bluff, as the wrench can really deliver an incredible amount of torque that’s very impressive for a equipment with its compact size.
