Break Free From Cords Without Sacrificing Performance With The Bosch ProFactor 1/2-Inch Impact Wrench
Bosch promises that the power of the ProFactor 1/2-inch impact wrench will offer competitive power to corded models. After reviewing this tool’s big brother, the 3/4-inch model, we have high hopes that this one performs similarly. Dive into the details of the Bosch ProFactor 1/2-inch 18V Impact Wrench and see if it’s time for you to say goodbye to cords and hoses for good.
Bosch ProFactor 18V Cordless 1/2-Inch Impact Wrench: The Big Deal
Bosch designed the GDS18V-740 to compete with corded impact wrenches in both power and performance. It breaks free and drives large nuts, bolts, and anchors quickly using BITURBO brushless motor technology.
This impact wrench delivers up to 740 ft-lbs of fastening torque and 1,180 ft-lbs of breakaway torque. Additionally, there are three speed and torque settings (0-800/1300/1750 RPM) so you can adjust the power level to fit the needs of your job.
- Variable speed trigger
- LED light system
- Rubber head for protection against damage
- Friction ring for quick socket changes
- Auto bolt release stops rotation in reverse when there is no load on the tool
From there, a second version of the tool splits off. The Bosch GDS18V -740CB14 is the Connected-ready version that accepts Bosch’s Connected Module. With it, you can save and customize modes and view other helpful information using the Bosch Toolbox app.
