Dec. 2, 2016
This cordless impact wrench has 550 ft/lbs of torque and 365 ft/lbs of max reverse torque, which matches the power capabilities of many pneumatic impact wrenches.

The Ingersoll Rand IQV20 W5132 Impactool is a cordless 3/8” impact wrench provides 550 ft/lbs of torque and 365 ft/lbs of max reverse torque, which matches the power capabilities of many pneumatic impact wrenches, according to the company. This Impactool is available with a 3/8” or 1/2” drive, and has a power regulator with four power and control settings for accurate tightening. Additionally, the tool comes equipped with a shadowless 60 lm chip-on-board (COB) LED task light that provides a 360-degree ring of light to the area that needs servicing.

Application

Technicians can use the W5132 3/8” and W5152 1/2” Impactools to quickly loosen and tighten a variety of fasteners. The compact brushless motor transfers energy efficiently, delivering accurate torque for several repair and maintenance applications including tire and wheel lug nuts, engine bays, brake hubs, axle wheel nuts, interior dashboard components, support brackets, under mount installation and repair, flange bolts, diesel engine repair, machine rebuilds, rail maintenance, industrial machine maintenance, manufacturing equipment repair, machinery installation and equipment disassembly.

Origin

Technicians are under more and more pressure to get the job done efficiently. It’s all about throughput. The faster a technician can get the job done, the more money he or she can make. The Power Control System on the W5132 has four settings that helps maximize efficiency by allowing the technician to complete more applications with just one tool. Time spent fumbling between tools and accessories can waste time. The W5132 eliminates the need for smaller tools and accessories.

Features and benefits

  • Allows technicians to apply maximum power to a number of applications, so they get the work done quickly by eliminating the need to switch from tool to tool.
  • Delivers up to 340 ft/lbs of torque to powerfully tighten bolts, transmissions and axles, while the mid-power setting tightens fasteners at up to 240 ft/lbs of torque for applications that don’t require maximum torque speeds.
  • Includes a wrench tight setting so technicians can tighten fasteners at 10-to-24 ft/lbs of torque without using a hand wrench. Using this setting, the tool automatically shuts off so bolts are not over-torqued on parts such as suspension bolts, motor mounts, brake calipers, bumper covers, lug nuts and other general maintenance and repair operations (MRO).
  • Hand tight setting, which turns slowly, creating a snug fit for parts such as valve covers, transmission pans, drum housings and other light fastening applications at 2 to 9 ft/lbs of torque.

Selling points

The W5132 is designed specifically for automotive technicians and delivers up to 50 percent more torque compared to the leading cordless 3/8” impact wrench, according to the company. This tool delivers 365 ft/lbs of maximum reverse torque and weighs only 5.1 lbs, giving it the best power-to-weight ratio of any cordless impact tool on the market.

Manufacturing specs

  • Made with a steel-lined aluminum hammer case, this cordless Impactool is designed to be strong yet lightweight. It can withstand repeated drops with its composite housing and patented, steel reinforced frame. Ingersoll Rand exposes the tool’s housing to 17 different chemicals and fluids commonly found in the shop environment including, lubricants, detergents and solvents.
  • The tool is available with a 3/8” or 1/2” square drive and comes with four power and control settings.
  • Four power modes for forward control include: Hand Tight, Wrench Tight, Mid Power and Max Power.
  • Shadowless 60 lm chip-on-board (COB) LED task light provides a 360-degree ring of light to the area that needs servicing.
