Wireless Impact Wrench review and Many Models Available
In the “old” days, you used to be limited as to where you could use an impact wrench. No matter how much easier it would be to change a flat tire on the side of the road, forget it.. Today, though, there are many more compact versions of impact wrenches, there are even several models of wireless impact wrench available.
With so many makes and models of wireless impact wrench available, I’m only going to cover some of the basic features in this article rather than give you the specifics of a certain make and model.
I will provide you with some idea of the features that are available, you will have to narrow down your choice to a specific impact wrench, OK?
So, here we go. First of all, don’t think that you have to sacrifice power for portability, you don’t. Some of the cordless models are just very powerful and will work very well for many household tasks.
Most of the cordless models offer the same features like the air compression models. You can get 300 ft. lbs. of torque in a lightweight plastic body.
These types of impact wrenches will have a forward and reverse, sometimes multiple torque options in the forward position, as well as easy to grasp, nonslip handles.

It would be a mistake to think of these impact wrenches as lower quality. Many of the top tool manufacturers have one or more models of cordless impact wrenches.
Companies like Hitachi, Dewalt, Mikita, Milwaukee, Bosch, and Craftsman, to name just a few, all offer at least one model of the cordless impact wrench.
Most of these tools will come with a rechargeable Ni-Cad battery with extended run time. These batteries will provide almost twice as much run time as standard Ni-Cad batteries.
That means they won’t quit on you until the job is done. And, since many of these cordless models come with one hour recharging units, you won’t have to wait long until you have the power you need to get going again.
You can even invest in a backup battery pack so that one is charging when you are using one. Doing this will ensure you never run out of power until the job is done.
For all the DI Y’s and part-time mechanics out there (or just those of you who never want to have to manually loosen the lug nuts on your car the next time you need to change your tires) a wireless impact, the wrench is just what you need: all the power with all the
