Milwaukee Impact Wrenches
Impact wrenches are extremely useful for dislodging tight, stuck or stripped bolts and an essential tool for some kinds of work like automotive repair. Milwaukee makes a range of different impact wrenches to suit different applications.Milwaukee Impact Wrench Applications
An impact wrench is designed to apply extremely high torque to nuts and bolts. They do this by applying a rapid series of hard impacts to twist the bolt a little at a time. Impact wrenches are ideal for loosening very tight bolts that would be impossible to remove by hand. Even when hand tools could be used, an impact wrench is much quicker and requires less physical effort. They can also be used for tightening nuts and bolts, although care should be taken not to overtighten and strip the threads.Milwaukee Electric Impact Wrenches
While pneumatic impact wrenches have traditionally dominated workshops, Milwaukee focuses on building high-powered corded and cordless electric wrenches. Corded wrenches can be made more powerful and also lighter, as they don’t have to include a battery pack. However, Milwaukee has invested heavily in cordless power tool technology and adopted it for their flagship line of Milwaukee battery impact wrenches. Their M18 FUEL line of cordless impact wrenches feature REDLITHIUM power packs that offer 50 per cent longer runtime than comparable power sources. Combined with efficient POWERSTATE brushless motors, this greatly extends runtime as well as providing much higher power than previous cordless toolsMilwaukee Impact Wrench Technology
Batteries and brushless motors are not the only innovative features that Milwaukee have packed into their impact wrenches. Cordless models in particular often feature their REDLINK PLUS technology. This intelligent system constantly manages the drill’s motor and other electronics to prevent overheating, protecting components that could be damaged by high temperatures. Some models also feature their ONE-KEY system. This system allows you to centrally track the usage and location of connected tools and even customise their performance from an online platform or mobile app. It is particularly useful for professional users with a large number of Milwaukee tools. Several designs also include a friction ring that holds sockets in place securely but also allows quick, tool-free socket changes.Milwaukee Sockets
No matter how good the impact wrench is, it isn’t much use without the socket. Many Milwaukee power tools, including impact wrenches, are supplied as bare tools without any accessories, allowing users to select the sockets that best fit the work that they need to do. Their impact wrenches are built to accommodate different socket sizes depending on the model.
