Milwaukee® Introduces New M18 Cordless 1/2" High Torque Impact Wrenches

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands its LITHIUM-ION system with the new M18 Cordless 1/2" High Torque Impact Wrenches. Featuring industry leading power in a compact size, the new additions have longer run-time and faster driving speed than the competition.

"Our product development process starts with researching customer needs," says Rick Gambaccini, Sr. Product Manager-Cordless of Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "Users want more power in a smaller and lighter size. With this request in mind, we have delivered new impact wrenches that will provide the power they need for heavy-duty applications and the size they want for more control and less fatigue."

Delivering 450 ft-lbs of torque, the 1/2" models lead the industry in power by up to 80%. At only 8-7/8" in length and 6.75 lbs, the M18 Cordless 1/2" High Torque Impact Wrenches are up to 1-7/8" shorter and up to 1lb lighter than any other tool in their class.

The two 1/2" models vary only in their anvil types. The 2662-22 has a 1/2" anvil with detent pin to achieve superior socket retention, while the 2663-22 has a 1/2"anvil with friction ring for quick and easy one-handed socket changes. Although the 1/2" anvils are used in a variety of ways, many common applications fall in the mechanical, industrial construction, and automotive industries.

Backed by a 5-Year/2000 charge warranty, the new Milwaukee® 18V XC High Capacity LITHIUM-ION technology features DPM™ - Digital Power Management to provide maximum tool life and longer run-time.

With the addition of this new tool, the M18 cordless system continues to grow and provide innovative solutions. With leading LITHIUM-ION Technology, Milwaukee® will continue to build this platform to offer industry leading performance and ergonomics.
