The fact that the Milwaukee 2763 Gen 1 high torque now has a stronger big-brother, but still finished 3rd deserves big kudos. In fact, receiving 86.1 points, it only misses 2nd by 0.3 points. While some others above suffered by finishing mid-pack, this is actually a plus for the Milwaukee. The difference is, the 2763 didn’t drastically fall short in any area, like the others. Even though the price is higher than several, with it’s 5-year warranty, features, and ergonomics, it’s still a great value.

Cordless impact wrenches are a great tool to use regardless – but they’re even better for people who enjoy working freely and without the restriction of a cord, or for people who need to be able to have tools that can travel with them throughout a workday. Cordless impact wrenches help to make work more convenient and an easy without sacrificing on any of the power that the air powered models are able to produce.

We used a 10-inch x 10-inch I-beam made with 1/2” (.470) steel. The I-beam has ten (10) grade 8 hardened bolts with a 7/8” diameter inserted, along with appropriate nuts and washers. The torque specification for this size bolt is 454 pounds. This means that at 454 ft-lbs of torque, the bolt is in its elastic or stretched state. We pushed the limits a bit and torqued all ten bolts to 500 ft-lbs for each impact wrench.
Power or impact wrenches are used for tightening or loosening nuts quickly. They are essentially small handheld electric or pneumatic motors that can rotate socket wrenches at high speed. They are equipped with a torque-limiting device that will stop the rotation of the socket wrench when a preset torque is reached. Pneumatic wrenches are commonly used in automobile service stations, where compressed air is available and the sparking of electric motors is a fire hazard.

As one of the few subjective areas of our testing, we do our best to still quantify our results by including many users and data logging the results. Even though cordless tools are getting a bit smaller and lighter, due to technology, the cordless impact wrenches still have some weight and girth. Using a heavy tool can be a real pain, so it makes sense to place value on the fit and comfort of such a tool. More than just weight, balance, and vibration also play into our testing.
Just because you have the most powerful cordless impact wrench, it doesn’t mean it will last forever. While it doesn’t guarantee longevity or durability, it is nice to know that tool companies stand behind their tools. The New Milwaukee M18 FUEL Impact Wrench secures the top spot including warranties with 5-years of coverage on both of their high-torque impacts (2763 and 2767). Four manufacturers include 3-year warranties: DeWalt, Ingersoll Rand, MAC, and Makita. Matco Tools is the bottom-dweller here with just an 18-month warranty, according to their customer support center.
While the DeWALT tied for 2nd for features, it did suffer just a bit in the ergonomics category. With ergonomics being a more subjective testing category, users probably need to put the tool in their hand to make their own decision. If you have other DeWALT tools or you think you’re leaning to the DCF899, it’s easy to yes to this impact wrench. Furthermore, you can find the DeWALT stuff about anywhere tools are sold, making it easy for purchase.
The hammer mechanism in an impact wrench needs to allow the hammer to spin freely, impact the anvil, then release and spin freely again. Many designs are used to accomplish this task, all with some drawbacks. Depending on the design, the hammer may drive the anvil either once or twice per revolution (where a revolution is the difference between the hammer and the anvil), with some designs delivering faster, weaker blows twice per revolution, or slower, more powerful ones only once per revolution.
