Product Overview

The MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL 1/2 in. Mid-Torque Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring delivers the best power to weight ratio, most access in tight spaces, and faster removal speed. It provides 650 ft. lbs. of nut-busting torque and only weighs 5.1 lbs., making it extremely versatile, capable of performing a wide variety of applications. Its POWERSTATE Brushless Motor generates the power needed to quickly perform many tasks, such as removing large bolts or lug nuts. This cordless impact wrench is the most compact in its class, giving users access to stubborn fasteners in spaces where larger impact wrenches can't fit without needing to disassemble components to reach bolts. Tri-LEDs surround the anvil to deliver brighter light with fewer shadows. 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL offers greater precision with a range of pre-set RPM and IPM levels, selectable from a single button on the tool. By selecting Mode 4, AUTO SHUT-OFF control applies no more than 35 ft. lbs. of torque for hand-tight fastening applications to prevent overtightening. Mode 4 also features Bolt Removal Control that delivers users full torque output, then decreases RPMs once the bolt is loosened to prevent fastener drops. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence ensures maximum performance, protecting the tool against overloads, over-heating, and over-discharge. The M18 REDLITHIUM battery pack (not included) fits M18 tools, delivering more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack.

Awesome impact
This impact is one awesome tool. I’ve not had any issue with this impact taking off bolts and nuts. It does it extremely fast and is very powerful for a mid torque. It is my most go to tool that I use.

Fantastic impact wrench. I keep a 3.0 high output battery on it, and it weighs about the same as a drill. Tons of power, and you can get even more power out of it if needed by swapping in a bigger battery. There was a wheel hub nut that wouldn’t budge with the 3.0 battery. I swapped in a 5.0 battery and off it came. Knock on wood, there hasn’t been a fastener that I’ve encountered that this impact wrench couldn’t take off. Very highly recommended.

      As a lifelong DIYer I've learned, often the hard way, that a good tool is always worth paying extra for. That's the reason I've long been a big fan of the fine tools from Milwaukee, even more so with the launch of their 18 volt cordless M18 line. This M18 Gen-2 Lithium Ion Brushless Mid-Torque 1/2 Inch Impact Wrench with Friction Ring is a great tool. It has a solid, heavy-duty feel, an indication of the underlying quality construction. In use, the driver feels well-balanced and has plenty of power. It removed some tough-to-loosen lug nuts on an old trailer of mine with ease. Charge life on the included XC5.0 batteries is very good. Overall, I'm very pleased with this tool - highly recommended!

      Another great tool by Milwaukee sold at The Home Depot and part of the 175+ M18 products. Mine weighed in at 5lbs. 2 ounces with the 5 AH battery on it. It comes with two 5AH batteries and enough power for most jobs and all day use. It is ver comfortable in my hand and pretty well balanced. After charging up my battery I was able to bust loose the lug nuts on my car within seconds, a task with a t-bar or socket set that would take much longer and way more effort. Hold the tool firmly on big jobs, it packs a lot of power. It has 3 bright led lights right behind the 1/2 holder that lights up the work area nicely. A belt clip that can go on either side is nice especially for overhead work. It has 3 drive modes depending on the job, I start out on Mode 1 and go from there.all the way up to 2400 RPM and 3000 IPM (Impacts per minute). All selectable on the tool with a push of the mode button Mode 1 RPM...................................................... 0 - 1700 IPM .............................................................2300 Mode 2 RPM...................................................... 0 - 2100 IPM .............................................................2700 Mode 3 RPM...................................................... 0 - 2400 IPM .............................................................3000 Built to last a long time and the tool itself has a lengthy 5 year warranty!! If you are looking for a serious, powerful, long lasting, well built impact driver I highly recommend this one!

      I recently ordered and received the Milwaukee M18 FUEL GEN-2 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Mid Torque 1/2 in. Impact Wrench with Friction Ring Kit. I used the wrench today (01/17/21) to remove and replace lug nuts on one of our boat trailers that had a flat. I have a couple pneumatic torque wrenches and I can honestly say that the Milwaukee 18-Volt battery powered torque wrench works every bit as well. It has several features that really make it a great addition to my arsenal of tools. 1st, it has led work lights that perfectly illuminate the area you are working on. The 2nd feature I really like is the 35lb torque tightening feature which snugs lug nuts (or whatever your working on) but doesn’t overtighten like my pneumatic wrench does. I like to finish the job off with a star lug or a pre-set torque device. The 3rd feature that is nice is that you are not tied to an air hose and compressor. The battery powered unit is more than enough to get the job done. In summary, this is just an exceptional tool that should last for years as Milwaukee is known for their workmanship. I will always keep this tool in my truck. It will certainly make quick work of almost any tire change. I highly recommend this tool. I have included a few pictures below.

      This is a great tool. It is primarily designed for automotive and industrial use, but you can use it for pretty much anything. The unit we got is designed for ½ inch sockets but with an adapter it can also use the more common 3/8 inch sockets too. The great thing about an impact wrench is that in addition to turning clockwise or counter clockwise like an ordinary wrench, it also has a simultaneous “hammering” action, which is the secret to its incredible effectiveness loosening stuck, frozen, over-tightened or rusted bolts.

      I really appreciate the smaller size of this mid-torque 1/2 impact wrench from Milwaukee. It packs a lot of power into this small frame. It weighs in at 3.5 pounds without the battery and 5.1 pounds with the included battery. There are four modes on this model: 1) 0-1250 RPM / 0-900 IPM / up to 350 ft-lbs torque; 2) 0-1950 RPM / 0-2100 IPM / up to 450 ft-lbs torque; 3) 0-2575 RPM / 0-3100 IPM / up to 550 ft-lbs forward and 650 reverse torque; 4) 0-2575 RPM / 0-3100 IPM / up to 35 ft-lbs forward and 650 reverse torque. Mode 4 is basically full power to remove nuts with a slow down once there is no resistance and uses limited power on install. As soon as it detects torque it stops. This is great when you are setting nuts and want to hand torque, etc. I tested on lug nuts of my Ford Expedition which were hand torqued to 150 ft-lbs. Mode 1 was unable to break the nuts free. Mode 2 had to hammer at the nuts for 20-30 seconds before they broke free. Modes 3 and 4 hammered for just a few seconds before breaking free. Testing mode 4 for install of the nuts the impact wrench performed exactly as expected and it stopped as soon as the nut met the rim and generated resistance. For me, mode 4 will likely be the state I leave the tool in most of the time. I prefer this model which uses the friction ring but there is another model with the pin detent if you so desire. This model does not support One Key. The three LEDs on the front do a decent job of lighting the work surface. There is also a rubber boot accessory available for this model that will protect the upper body from scratches as well as protecting your work surface. This particular kit includes the impact wrench, molded case, battery charger and two XC5.0 batteries

      I don't know what else I can add that has not been shared with some of the other reviews already posted, other than, it is an extremely nice tool for my needs. I'm one of those guys who rotates his own tires and changes his own motor oil in their vehicles. Throw in an occasional miscellaneous repair, if I can. This tool works great on wheel lug nuts of my 12 year old pickup truck and I have confidence it will have enough torque for many other repairs that require an impact wrench. It's size alone is worth looking into. Compared to an air system, it will make your day. The friction ring is at the end of the anvil and holds the socket on, as opposed to mini balls like you have on ratchets. The advantage is not having to flush out the bearings. Milwaukee includes a spare kit. Easy to change on my older Milwaukee impact and it looks the same on this model. Nice storage case. Led lights. OK instructions. Perfect for a backyard mechanic.

      The Milwaukee M18 ½” Mid-torque impact wrench is amazing. Tons of power, it just pops the lug nuts off on my ½ ton pickup like it’s not even trying. I really like mode 4 of the drive control. This mode eliminates the fear of over-torque. On this setting the wrench provides all 650 ft-lbs. of power to remove the lug nut and 35 ft-lbs. of fastening to snug up the lug so I can hand torque. Milwaukee really knocked it out of the park with this impact wrench. Even the carrying case is well made and thought out. I no longer need my air impact wrench.

      I received the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Gen-2 Mid-Torque Impact Wrench with friction ring. Kit part# 2962-22 The kit includes two 5AH Batteries M18-M12 battery charger and Hard carrying case. I also have the Milwaukee M18 Fuel Gen-1 Impact it works great also. But the new Gen-2 in more compact front to back makes it easier to get into tight places like removing caliper mounting brackets. I also like that there are four modes in mode 4 it hits with up to 650 ft-lbs of break free, then slows down after fastener breaks free and when tightening in mode 4 it goes to about 35 lbs so you can use a torque wrench to set to torque. Mode 3 is full 650 ft-lbs off up to 550 fastening torque and RPM of 2575 and that will do the job for everything I have tried it on. I took the lugs off my older truck that I haven't had off in years no problem at all, you could see a little dust from the rust on the threads when they lugs broke free.

      This thing is fantastic ! I've been using the older 1/2" 220FT LB Mid torque for years. This blows that out of the water, way more powerful and much, much quieter. Breaking loose rusted caliper bolts or removing wheel lugs is effortless. Video Demo https://youtu.be/OjwwwFLRns4

                Impact wrench strength
                I was worried it wouldn’t do lug nuts but did it no problem. Biggest thing is friction ring can be a little tight on and off but so can the indents. Love it for ease of use and don’t have to drag out the compressor.
