The M18 FUEL 1/2-inch Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring provides 650 ft-lbs of nut-busting torque while weighing only 5.1 lbs with a 5.0Ah battery, making it an extremely versatile tool, capable of performing a wide variety of applications. Its POWERSTATE Brushless motor generates the power needed to quickly perform many of the same tasks, such as removing large bolts or lug nuts. This tool is the most compact in its class, allowing access to stubborn fasteners. Tri-LEDs surround the anvil to deliver brighter light with less shadows. 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL offers greater precision with a range of pre-set RPM and IPM levels, selectable from a single button on tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impact and batteries great. Charger not so much Bought this kit back in October 2021. Right out of the box there was an issue with the charger flashing red and green, indicating defective battery but since both batteries did the same, I assume it was the charger. I had to order another kit and return the defective one. Now 5 months in and this charger has stopped working. I use these tools to work with and need to we able to rely on them. Now that I'm passed the return window I must deal directly with Milwaukee. I really like the impact for automotive work but it's useless to me if I can't charge the batteries. I really hope Milwaukee rises up and sorts this out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This impact wrench is a must have! I've had this impact wrench for several months now and used it for a variety of tasks including seasonal tire changes on and off our two vehicles. It effortlessly removes lug nuts and has made my pneumatic impact wrench completely redundant allowing me to do away with the hassle of the compressor and hose. This tool feels solid and comfortable in the hand and the different settings give good control for different tasks. I'd highly recommend this impact wrench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tool Very good tool. Once again Milwaukee outdid themselves in this tool. Extreme power and it’s not very heavy at all for the amount of power it puts out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you need a mid torque, look no further. It does the job and then some. The friction ring version is my favorite. The awesome part about this mid torque is that it is very powerful but also only 6 inches long, so it fits in basically the same places a compact can, with a similar amount of weight yet with almost 3 times the torque. This ones a winner forsure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact powerhouse! Portable powerhouse! Love my new mid torque! I have 24 years as a diesel mechanic with the Canadian military, wish I would have had this when I was still serving. It's compact enough to get in fairly tight spots. I love the settings, the low is just enough to spin on my lug nuts without over torqueing before using my torque wrench. Top setting spins off nuts without even struggling and it's quicker than my 1/2" air impact ever was! The auto setting is nice, breaks torque and slows down once it senses resistance decreases. Tool is nice and light and it's really nice not to haul my compressor if I have a repair job away from home. Really nice to have the LED lights on the nose, great to have when you're working in low light areas like under vehicles or under the hood. I would recommend this Gucci piece of gear to anyone, worth every penny! Keep in mind, if your locking for the full 650 ft lbs of torque, you need to order from the online store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong torque and great quality and size I have the older bigger series of fuel 1/2" impac,t I think 800 or 1100ftlb. This newer smaller design is smaller and will do most of my work, including my 1 ton wheels and 12" long screws
Date published: 2022-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment Absolutely the best tool invested. Used mainly on automotive suspension work. Will do the job 95% of the time. Other 5% the high torque gun will take care of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool. I love the compactness of the tool and the multiple torque selections. I'm glad to have purchased the boot cover to protect the tool.

What is the difference between a "friction ring" and a "pin detent" when using these impact wrenches for automotive use (lug nuts), and which would be better suited for that job ?

Asked by: Two fish Frank
Friction ring is far better. Easier to remove socket. But it never comes off.  Detent one is really hard to remove socket.

I have a mid torque impact wrench and i want to make clear that how mush input voltage should i need for the charger to charge the batteries.I want to confirm that can i use 220 - 240 volt for the chager?

Asked by: Gagan
Hi Gagan- We recommend 120 AC input volts for the M18™ & M12™ Multi-Voltage Charger. You can learn more in the charger's Operator Manual > https://documents.milwaukeetool.com/58-14-1815d12.pdf

Why are all of the torque specs listed in inch pounds when they should be in ft.lbs? Every single product I have looked at is that way in the homedepot specs.

Asked by: FixYourSpecs
Hello! This impact wrench features 650 (ft-lbs) Nut Busting Torque and 550 (ft-lbs) Fastening Torque.
