Impact wrench is intended for tightening and loosening bolts, lug nuts and rusted fasteners. Impact wrench is typically used in the automotive and construction industry, though are also applied in many other cases where a high torque output is needed.
What is an Impact Wrench?
Impact wrench is intended for tightening and loosening bolts, lug nuts and rusted fasteners. It usually presents higher rotational torque at up to 600 Nm, sometimes have 10 times the torque compared to very powerful impact drills and makes demanding work easier and more efficient. Impact wrench is typically used in the automotive and construction industry, though are also applied in many other cases where a high torque output is needed.
Difference between impact wrench and impact driver
An impact wrench is perfect for heavy work whereas, an impact driver is the same as an electric screwdriver with a knocking rotation. Although it is similar to an impact wrench, it has a regular bit connection so you can screw in or out a Phillips or Torx screw. The impact wrench is a cordless device that is ideal for serial screw work.
What to look for when buying a cordless impact wrench?
when looking for a new cordless impact wrench, the very first thing to consider is whether it generates plenty of torque. Compared to an air-driven wrench, a cordless impact wrench provides relatively less torque while being sufficient for smaller jobs. In fact, cordless impact wrenches have a tremendous advantage: mobility. Not being tied to a compressor with an air hose, these tools can easily go wherever they’re needed.
In addition, the brand of the power tools also need to be considered. Generally, the cordless power tools and the battery packs with the charger are compatible with each other. So, if you already have cordless tools and battery packs, it’s a good idea to get a new cordless impact wrench of the same brand.
Third, there are brushed motor and brushless motor for cordless power tools. The brushless motor is an upgraded product, and its life performance is better than that of the brushed motor with longer service life and maintenance-free. However, a fact cannot be ignored is that brushless tools are usually more expensive than brushed tools. So, the final choice still depends on the specific needs.
