Ingersoll Rand introduces Ultra-Compact Impactools™ 12 August 2016

Ingersoll Rand is now offering the 35MAX and 15QMAX Ultra-Compact Impactools™ – small, yet powerful tools that technicians and operators can use to quickly loosen or tighten a variety of fasteners in confined spaces.

The 35MAX and 15QMAX pneumatic impact tools feature high power-to-weight ratios, an easy to operate regulator dial with three power settings, and push button forward and reverse capabilities.

“The access points in vehicle frames are getting increasingly confined and common impact tools cannot fit in areas that need servicing,” said Michael Cafferty, product manager for

Ingersoll Rand Power Tools. “Lightweight yet powerful, Ingersoll Rand Ultra-Compact Impactools™ help technicians and equipment engineers get the job done right every time.”

Each tool has three power settings, as well as full maximum reverse torque at all levels – so that technicians can insert and loosen fasteners on a variety of equipment and vehicles. The power regulator and pushbutton forward/reverse buttons are located on the back of the tool so that it can be easily operated in confined areas with one hand. In addition,the new ergonomic design and unique twin hammer mechanism reduce vibration to give operators better control during use. Both tools weigh 1.09kg and are 117mm long.

The 35MAX Ultra-Compact impact tool has a ½ inch square drive and 610Nm of maximum reverse torque. The 15QMAX impact has a ⅜ inch square drive and 520Nm of maximum reverse torque, along with premiere ‘quiet technology’ to reduce the amount of noise the tool creates.

With the same high durability construction as popular Ingersoll Rand Impactools, and composite housing, Ingersoll Rand states that rigorous internal testing methods indicate that the lifetime of each Ultra-Compact tool is twice as long as competitive products available today. Both tools also include a two-year warranty.
