Typical Applications:

Impact wrenches are for heavy-duty tightening or loosening of nuts and bolts. These wrenches allow you to achieve high torque socket wrenching with minimal effort. Using either battery power or compressed air, impact wrenches are easy to use and offer a level of socket drive difficult to achieve with a manual tool. These tools are often used in:
• Automotive repair shops
• Product assembly
• Construction


How do impact wrenches work?
Impact wrenches have an electric or air motor and they get their high torque from a mechanism which delivers quick strong continuous blows. These series of intense, twisting bursts of force are what eventually loosens or tightens the nut.

How much torque does this impact wrench have?
This Torque wrench generates 400Nm of torque.

What do I get in the set?
This Torque Wrench is for the bare unit only, so it is just the body that is supplied.


The model DTW285Z is for the bare unit only. The battery 812-9985 and the charger 667-4067 need to be ordered separately.
