Milwaukee One-Key Impact Wrench

By now I am sure you have heard of the Milwaukee One-Key Impact Wrench.  If not, here is a quick run down.  Milwaukee One-Key turns your tools into a smart tool.  As a user you can use an app on your phone to make key changes to your tool.  So say you don’t need all the torque and want more speed, just open the app, make a quick change to the settings to increase speed, hit the save button and you’re good to go.  Yes, it’s really that simple.  When manufacturers design tools, they have to take so much...

Milwaukee 2nd Generation Impacts – First Look

If you watched our live feed from the Milwaukee event, you know we were pretty excited about the new 2nd generation of impact drivers and wrenches from Milwaukee.  They are smaller and more powerful.  If you notice on the impact driver, there is a cool new feature.  If you look at the close up picture you will see the same three speeds, but you will also notice a 4th button.  This fourth button is for self tapping screw mode.  Say you are installing metal studs and you are using self tapping screws.  Just press this button and the impact is...

Milwaukee M18 Fuel High Torque Impact Wrench Review

Yes, another M18 Fuel.  I can’t help it.  They keep slamming out new and cool tools to the market and we just have to get our hands on them.  For this one we took a look at the Milwaukee M18 High Torque Impact wrench model 2763-22. Before we get started I just have to say if you’re a mechanic, put your listening ears on. As you know when you see a Milwaukee Fuel you know a couple things without even looking any further.  First, since it says Fuel, you know it’s brushless.  You know you should have longer run...

Milwaukee M12 Fuel Impact Wrench Review – 2454-22

How nice would it be to have lots of power and quality in the palm of your hands and a tool that is lightweight?   Well that is exactly what Milwaukee is doing with their M12 Fuel line.  Unless you have been hiding in a cave, you are probably familiar with the new M12 Fuel line, which incorporated brushless motors.  While brushless technology isn’t new, the application of a small tool with lots of power is new in the M12 line.  As with the Milwaukee M12 Impact driver, this tool is a new addition to the ever growing M12...

Milwaukee M18 Fuel 1/2″ Impact Wrench Review – Model 2655B-22

I can’t say I use an Impact Wrench much, but when I do need one, I want one that will do the job (who doesn’t).  I want one that has lots of power, but one I can control for different applications.  Pneumatic air tools are great because of the power, but it sucks carrying a tank or waiting for a tank to refill.  That’s where a cordless impact wrench comes in handy. However, there are downsides to a cordless wrench such as power and run time.  What good is a tool if you can only drive a couple small...

Milwaukee M18 Impact Wrench vs Milwaukee M18 Compact Impact Wrench

Okay before we get started, we are not doing a head to head to see which tool is better.  We are just comparing the two tools to help you understand the differences between a full size and compact wrench.  Plus to cover some other items that may be helpful when you are looking for a cordless impact wrench.  If you are not familiar with an impact wrench, here is a good overview from Wikipedia. “In operation, a rotating mass (the hammer) is accelerated by the motor, storing energy, then suddenly connected to the output shaft (the anvil), creating a high-torque impact. The hammer...

Milwaukee M18 Compact Impact Wrench – 2652-22

Normally when you hear the term “Compact Tool”, I think of a small tool with low power.  However when it comes to the Milwaukee M18 Compact Impact Wrench model 2652-22, it’s not what it appears.  While this tool is compact, it definitely is not light on power. Now a days things are designed to save space.  Everything is just jammed together making it impossible to work on.  Take an engine in today’s world.  Which engine is easier to work on, a 1966 Camaro or 2010 Camaro?  Right the 2010 Camaro, only because the first production didn’t occur until 1967.  Sorry just wanted to see if...

Milwaukee M18 Impact Wrench – One Tough Nut

You have a tough nut or bolt you need to break free, what do you do?  Easy, break out your Milwaukee M18 High Torque Impact Wrench.  Most manufacturers make an impact wrench, but I don’t think any are as well built as this Milwaukee.  Milwaukee hit this one dead on.  Two important items they hit dead on are the torque and the balance. Impact wrenches are not light.  Most tend to be heavy and bulky and the balance just isn’t there.  However the Milwaukee is different.  The tool weighs 6.7 lbs, so it is about twice the weight of a drill.  Because...

Milwaukee vs. Dewalt 12V Impact Wrench

In this corner we have the Milwaukee M12 Impact Wrench model 2451-22.  In the other corner we have the Dewalt 12V Impact Wrench model DCF813S2.  Okay that was a little cheesy, but this is our first Friday Night Tool Fight.  Before this little showdown started, I did talk a pretty big game as I am a huge Milwaukee fan.  However, Dan had his own smack talk, even with his ripped up jeans. Before we get started there is a lot more to true comparisons than what we did.  There are other factors like how long the batteries last per...

Milwaukee M12 Square Drive Impact Wrench 2451-22 Review

We have all been there where we have a nut that just won’t come off.  Okay that sounded a little dirty, but that doesn’t change the fact that there are lots of applications we need directed power to loosen or tighten a bolt.  That’s when an impact tool comes into play.  Even better, a cordless impact.  Even better a lightweight small impact that delivers 1,000 in-lbs of torque.  Say hello to the Milwaukee M12 Square drive impact wrench,model 2451-22. Manufacturer – Milwaukee Model – 2451-22 Average Purchase Price – $170 Milwaukee is the power house for 12V power tools.  No one comes...
