Milwaukee M12 Fuel 1/4″ & 3/8″ & 1/2″ Stubby Impact Wrenches Are Now Here

I wrote about the new Milwaukee M12 Fuel Stubby Impact wrenches when they debuted in this years NPS18 event. Back then Milwaukee introduced new M12 impact wrenches that were incredibly compact, featured Fuel brushless motors for more power up to a max 250 ft-lbs breakaway torque on 3/8″ and 1/2″ models whereas the 1/4″ stubby impact wrench topped out at 100 ft-lbs breakaway torque. Just like their name suggests, these things are incredibly compact meaning they’ll fit in a lot more places where larger 18 volt impacts can only dream of – including even the compact 18v impact wrench models. These new Milwaukee M12 Fuel Stubby impact wrenches are now here. Below is the included press release from Milwaukee.

  • Provides access in tight spaces
  • Industry’s most powerful 12V impact wrench
  • Features 4-Mode Drive Control
  • Protective rubber boots available

MILWAUKEE, WI- By harnessing the power, performance, and run-time of M12 FUEL™ technology*, Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the industry’s first cordless stubby impacts, the M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impact Wrenches. The most compact cordless impact wrenches on the market, Milwaukee’s new Stubby Impacts allow more access in tight spaces while delivering the power to complete many of the most demanding tasks.

“During applications that allow limited access, many professionals have resorted to reaching for pneumatic stubby impacts. However, the limited portability, maintenance, and noise associated with pneumatic units has been a frustration for these users,” said Eric Rusch, Senior Product Manager. “Due to our extensive research with users on the jobsite and in the shop, we saw an opportunity to truly disrupt this space by creating a cordless solution that not only boasts the benefits of no hoses and no maintenance, but is also designed with the compact size and power to tackle these types of applications.”

Available in 1/4″, 3/8” and 1/2″ size, the new M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impacts are the most compact impact wrenches on the market. Measuring no more than 5.1” in length, their short sizes allows greater access in tight spaces and provides unparalleled productivity to users.

The M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impacts’ POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motors deliver up to 250 ft-lbs of breakaway torque, removing the most stubborn bolts and fasteners. When paired with Milwaukee’s REDLINK™ Intelligence and REDLITHIUM™ XC4.0 Battery Pack, the Stubby Impacts have the power and speed to tackle various applications without dips in performance.

Designed with a four-mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature, users have the versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed to the application at hand. All four modes allow for precision control, with the 4th featuring an Auto-Shut Off Mode to prevent over-fastening of bolts.

 

With no hoses, compressors, or cords, users will experience less fatigue, as well as more maneuverability and portability during use. True to Milwaukee’s legendary promise of ‘Nothing but Heavy Duty,’ the tools feature aluminum housing and premium anvil materials to withstand shop and jobsite use. The combination of no wearable motor components and superior durability means users will have to service their tool less, translating to a much lower cost of ownership. In addition, a premium rubber overmold withstands corrosive materials and provides increased comfort when in use.

Available September 2018, the new M12 FUEL™ Stubby Impacts join the largest sub-compact cordless system in the industry, now offering more than 90 professional solutions focused on power, productivity, and portability.

* M12 FUEL™ power tools are designed, engineered, and built to deliver extreme performance and productivity. All M12 FUEL™ products feature three Milwaukee®-exclusive innovations—the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M12 FUEL™ tools are the most powerful sub-compact cordless tools in their class.
