Ingersoll Rand has launched a range of small, yet powerful tools that technicians and operators can use to quickly loosen or tighten a variety of fasteners in confined spaces. The 35MAX and 15QMAX pneumatic impact tools feature high power-to-weight ratios, an easy-to-operate regulator dial with three power settings, and push button forward and reverse capabilities.
The access points in vehicle frames are getting increasingly confined and common impact tools cannot fit in areas that need servicing, said Michael Cafferty, product manager for Ingersoll Rand Power Tools. Lightweight yet powerful, Ingersoll Rand Ultra-Compact Impactools help technicians and equipment engineers get the job done right every time.
Each tool has three power settings, as well as full max reverse torque at all levels, so that technicians can insert and loosen fasteners on a variety of equipment and vehicles. The power regulator and push-button forward/reverse buttons are located on the back of the tool so that it can be easily operated in confined areas with one hand. In addition, the new ergonomic design and unique twin hammer mechanism reduce vibration to give operators better control during use. Both tools weigh 1.09kg and are 117mm long.
Both tools can be used in a variety of applications including:
Vehicle repair and maintenance: tire and wheel lug nuts, engine bays, brake hubs, axle wheel nuts, interior dashboard components, support brackets, and undermount installation and repair
