24 Jul Cordless Impact Wrench/Driver
The name is a mouthful but the tool is impressive. The new ASCD 18-1000 W34 Select from Fein is a cordless impact wrench with a brushless motor and six torque settings. It’s designed for metric screw applications up to M27. The large range of torque settings prevent shearing of screw heads. The tool offers high-end torque up to 9,293 in/lbs and the PowerDrive motor has 30% greater efficiency and longer service life than previous models. There’s a maximum release torque of 13,276 in/lbs in reverse, and the tool has a 3/4″ external square drive for mounting impact sockets. There’s a robust, solid metal impact gearbox, a multi-Volt interface, and this cordless tool can be used with all FEIN li-ion batteries (12-18 V). It offers up to 130 screw applications (1-1/16″) with one 6 Ah battery charge, and there’s just one charger for all voltages. The battery’s remaining capacity can be read directly on the battery, which also delivers Fein’s Safety Cell technology that protects the battery and the tool from overloading, overheating or deep discharge.
