But, it’s not all raw power and no finesse. The Ingersoll Rand High-Torque Impact Wrench features the IQV Power Control System. This provides 4 modes: Full Power, Half Power, Wrench Tight, and Hand Tight. The variable speed trigger gives even more control. As the brand says, “from axle nuts to oil pans, flange bolts to pre-torque joints, there’s no need to switch tools.”

Our Thoughts

Lots of companies make high-torque impact wrenches, but most folks don’t regularly require 1,000 ft-lbs of torque. In this case, however, IR made the tool extremely versatile by including multiple power modes and designing it with a 1/2-inch anvil.

This design element makes it accessible for both the serious DIYer audience and our friends in the heavy-duty automotive industries. It provides enough power to release frozen nuts and bolts, conduct fleet truck maintenance, and is ideal for industrial and MRO settings.
