Ingersoll Rand has been the staple of automotive impacts for years. The W7250 is basically the same as the W7150 20v impact we tested except for the addition of 2″ extended anvil to get into longer situations. The 6.8 lb tool has an industry leading 780 ft lbs of torque. The mechanics that we let use this tool loved it.
The charger has USB charging port on it and is audible to let you know when the charge is complete. It also has LED status lights to gauge the remaining charge time.
The mechanic at the local marina we work with is sold on the IR IQ line of tools, they are tough and get the job done. In my opinion the IR is the best cordless impact on the market so far. Although it doesn’t have the features like the Milwaukee Impact that we tested here. It lacks features like an LED light and to date does not have 4.0 batteries. That being said, the W7250 is still a great workhouse impact. A 3 year warranty covers this product. Check it out Via Amazon
That’s a huge anvil.
Saw an IR at sears today on clearance for $119 floor model. But it wasn’t like this monster!
I’ve owned several cordless impact wrenches, including SnapOn and the 36 volt Dewalt and the Ingersal Rand I just bought has been the best yet. Battery seems to last a long time between charges and it has incredible torque! I have the IR W7150 with the smaller shank. Hope to get my hands on a IR right angle impact soon after seeing the review on it!
The Dewalt 36volt impact wrench only had 325 foot pounds of torque. I’m sure that was pretty good bad in the day when they were released, but It’s not really competitive in today cordless impact wrench market now. The 36 volt cordless tool market doesn’t get too much attention anymore. Except for SDS drills and a few other tools now. I think they have figured out to get more power draw on the 18 volt tools now with the new lithium ion cells. Dewalt did release updated 2.0 and 4.0ah 36 volt packs recently, so maybe its not as dead as I think it is.
