There is no denying that power tools make every job easier. Strong, light, and efficient power tools are all to the better. That is what Milwaukee Tool Company has done with their new M18 Fuel 1/2 Inch Mid Torque Impact Wrench ($189).

Fitting perfectly between the usual compact impact wrench and the bigger high-torque models, the M18 provides just the right size and power for most around-the-house/garage jobs a cordless wrench is needed for. It offers 450 ft-lbs of fastening torque balanced against 600 ft-lbs of “Nut-Busting” reverse torque. The lightweight 5.3 pound wrench provides 3-mode drive control to its maximum 2,400 rpm, and sports a rubber overmold for extra durability and protection against corrosive material. Available as a bare tool or a kit that includes two 5.0 Milwakee REDLITHIUM 18 Volt batteries, charger, and case. [via]
