While the use of an impact wrench has made everyone’s life easier, one of its limitations remains the requirement of electricity. Not only does it limit where the tool can be used, but also an electric cord also makes it difficult to move around. However, when we heard this problem could be solved by Metabo’s new product, we set out to try it: this is Metabo 18V Brushless 1/2″ Impact Wrench Review.
It is a brushless tool, manufactured in Germany. It weighs 11-pound, with packaging measured as 15 x 4 x 12 inches. It works on a lithium-ion battery of 18 volts and claims to have a longer running time. It is small, compact, and lightweight, which makes it easy to handle and use.
Initially, we were not sure whether the Metabo would live up to its expectations, so we set out to check it.
1. It is battery operated: Since this Metabo is cordless, it requires an 18 V Lithium-ion battery to work. The high-in-density lithium batteries allow an efficient power transfer, which minimizes electrical waste. The usage of a battery also allows a great degree of mobility to the machine.
It is designed with Electronic single cell protection. Along with this, the air-cooled charging is essential to prevent the machine from overheating and overloading. Not only does it help in charging the batteries 30 percent quicker, but it is also important to keep the machine safe and long lasting. It also has an LED indicator to represent the status of its battery.
2. It is productive and speedy: The Metabo wrench outperforms other comparable cordless wrenches by being one of the fastest among them. It has a long runtime and generates a high power while working. A high power generation helps it to work faster and generate a great force of torque.
The wrench comes with 11 torque or speed levels, which one can set according to the task they are using the machine for.
