Matco Tools announces new 1/2" cordless impact wrench and kit

Matco Tools announced the release of a new 18V cordless Infinium 1/2" impact wrench and kit to its growing product line. The MCL1812IWK is one of the latest offerings from Matco, featuring a super high-output drive-train engineered half-inch impact wrench with an optimal power to weight ratio. 

The wrench features 725 ft/lbs of breakaway torque along with a precise variable speed trigger and one-hand forward/reverse switch. A trigger activated LED illuminates dim work areas. The kit also comes with a 4.0Ah lithium battery and charger, which provides automotive technicians with a longer run time. 

"We always look for ways to make our customers’ jobs easier and the 4.0Ah lithium battery is what makes this kit special," said Jody Baker, product manager at Matco Tools. "This battery is built to last much longer than other impact wrenches, allowing the user to keep going for longer, more intense jobs."

The MCL1812IW has a compact and rugged design for superior portability and durability. Weighing only 6.6 lbs. including the battery, this impact wrench is also lighter than many others in the industry, helping to decrease fatigue for auto workers while using the tool, according to the company. 

The MCL1812IWK 1/2" impact wrench kit includes the MCL1812IW 1/2" impact wrench, MCL1840LB 4.0Ah lithium battery and MCL1840CHRG battery charger, and is available exclusively from Matco Tools.
