Global power tool company, Ingersoll Rand, has announced the release of 35MAX and 15QMAX Ultra-Compact ImpactoolsTM, 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 have high power-to-weight ratios, easy-to-operate regulator dials with three power settings, and simple forward and reverse capabilities.                   

Each tool has three power settings, as well as full maximum reverse torque at all levels, meaning 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.

On top of that, the new ergonomic design and unique twin hammer mechanism reduce vibration to give operators better control during use. The 35MAX Ultra-Compact impact tool has a half-inch square drive and  610 Nm of maximum reverse torque. The 15QMAX impact has a three-eighth inch square drive and  520 Nm of maximum reverse torque, along with premiere quiet technology to reduce the amount of noise the tool creates. Rigorous internal testing methods indicate that the lifetime of each Ultra-Compact tool is twice as long as competitive products available today.                                                                                          

Michael Cafferty, Product Manager for Ingersoll Rand, said: “The access points in vehicle frames are getting increasingly confined and common impact tools cannot fit in areas that need servicing. Lightweight yet powerful, Ingersoll Rand Ultra-Compact Impactools help technicians and equipment engineers get the job done right every time.”
