Ingersoll Rand

It’s no secret among mechanics there is a large migrations away from air tools towards cordless options. New impacts can generate a ton of power in some case too much however they can also be bulky and don’t always offer enough control of the power.

When it comes to air tools there are several different numbers you will see on the boxes and it’s clear manufacturers are not using any sort of standardization to report these numbers. Torque is also affected by application, …

A few years ago Ingersoll Rand was able to marry the two together nicely with the IR Hammerhead Impacts.
