Well well what do we have here, the new ACDelco ARI2061 18V 1/2″ Impact Wrench. If you have followed any of our ACDelco coverage you know we are big fans of the tool line. ACDelco is not just another generic tool that was branded with a famous name. They are quality powerful tools designed from the ground up to last and allow the user to get the job done. ACDelco gears the tools towards the mechanic, last year we dropped off a few tools to a local mechanic and they performed flawlessly and he still uses them daily.
I found the perfect environment to test the ARI2061, Ray Sagan and Son Machinery Movers. What they do is uncrate machinery, move and install it. They said they replace their impacts at least once a year because they use them so much. Well we dropped off the ARI2061 and came back 6 months later to see how it had held up. The ARi2061 performed flawlessly, battery life was on par with the other brand impacts that they use. Overall they liked the feel and power of the ARI2061. The unit produces 625 ft-lbs of breakaway torque, 480 ft-lbs of reverse torque and 300 ft-lbs of tightening torque. The 4 pole motor design provides power and reliability.
Overall you cannot go wrong with the ACDelco ARI2061, especially in the harsh industrial environment. The tool is covered by a one year warranty, has an led light and a battery fuel status gauge on the tool. Check out ACDelco
