Snap-On 1/2″ 18V Cordless Impact Wrench Review

OUR RATING: 4.1 out of 5 stars (4.1 / 5)

A cordless impact wrench is probably the most increasingly popular type of tool. Despite being a disappointment in its initial years, as it was not durable or powerful, the technology designed to build these have vastly improved over the years. Now, this tool can not only generate torques as powerful as corded and air types but might also work better than them in some cases. One of these products is the Snap-on Cordless Impact Wrench and this is the review.

snap-on 1/2-inch 18V cordless impact wrench review

It is a cordless tool, which means it works on a battery. It requires a battery of 18 V, which can be recharged when needed. The product is powerful, fast, and durable, so we set out to try it. Here is what we think about this tool.

Great features:

  1. It is cordless: The product is battery operated. It requires a battery of 18 Volts to function. Due to having no hassle to carry its compressed air cylinder as a fuel source, or electric wires, it provides a greater degree of mobility than the other types. Not needing electricity also makes it more versatile than others, as it can frequently be used it places without strong or continuous electric supply.
  2. It is lightweight: One of the major qualities of this tool is that it is being lightweight. This allows the user to use it easily for long hours. Not only is it easy to use and prevents wrist problems due to heavy lifting, but also prevents exhaustion and fatigue. Less fatigue allows the user to use it for a lengthy amount of time, enabling them to take up more projects and finishing them quickly.
  3. It is powerful: The high value of torque, impact per minute (IPM), and revolutions per minute (RPM) makes it a highly efficient and timesaving product among most of the other cordless impact wrenches. With the Snap-on, you get more work done in lesser time.
