Porter-Cable recently announced an extension of their Get Linked system of tools with the launch of the Porter-Cable 20V Max Impact Wrench. It’s the company’s first cordless impact wrench and is engineered with residential contractors and mechanics in mind.
The impact wrench features a 1/2-inch hog ring anvil that helps the motor deliver 330 ft-lbs of max torque. A variable speed trigger delivers 0-1,700 rotations per minute (RPM) and 0-2,500 Impacts Per Minute (IPM). Powered by the 4.0Ah 20V Max lithium ion battery pack, it’s 9.9 inches long and weighs 6 pounds. Other notable features include an over-molded grip and an LED work light to help illuminate dark work areas.
The PCC740LA is kitted with one 4.0Ah battery and priced at $159 MSRP. The PCC740B is available bare for $119 MSRP. Available in November 2016, the Porter-Cable 20V Max Impact Wrench will come with a three-year limited, one-year service, and 90-day money-back guarantee.

The Porter-Cable 20V Max Impact Wrench seems kind of overdue for brand that has had cordless tools out for quite a while. Positioning themselves as an entry-level professional brand, they pack plenty of power in this model with 330 foot-pounds of torque. That should be enough to get the attention of most impact wrench users in their target market of residential contractors and mechanics.
Combine the power with a $159 price tag for a kit that includes a 4.0 amp hour battery and I’d say Porter-Cable is hitting the entry level Pro market perfectly. If you’re already on the Porter-Cable battery platform the bare tool is a $119 addition to your set.
