Six new hydraulic impact wrenches
Fairmont, a Textron Inc. company and Greenlee brand has launched six new hydraulic impact wrenches that allow end-users to choose between high-torque and moderate torque, full flow and adjustable flow, and 7/16-inch hex quick change and 1/2-inch square drive versions. "Our hydraulic impact wrenches are the most durable and longest lasting of any wrench on the market," said Ron Axon, senior product manager of Fairmont products. "The 7/16-inch hex quick change feature is key for switching from drilling to driving faster, safer and easier."
All Fairmont impact-wrenches are designed with a twin-hammer impact mechanism that provides high performance and reliability. The Super Spool selector permits quick switches between an open or closed-center hydraulic system. There's also a button to switch function between forward and reverse rotation, allowing for faster and quicker ease of use. Each Fairmont impact wrench also comes with an ergonomically heat-insulated one-piece handle for better comfort and balance.
The high-torque, high-speed Fairmont H8508-1, H8508-1V, H8508-2, and H8508-2V impact wrenches feature both industry-leading torque and speed capabilities. With an improved casting and trigger guard design, these wrenches turn at up to 6,500 rpm and drill holes through hardened treated wood poles in seconds rather than minutes. These four particular impact wrenches have 400 foot-pound of torque to break free most rusty pole hardware as well as tighten new hardware.
The moderate-torque, moderate-speed H8508-3 and H8508-3V wrenches still have plenty of power to drill holes and tighten hardware, with a maximum of 280 foot-pound of torque. They are also less likely to break pole hardware and drill a little slower for greater control when needed.
The Fairmont H8508-1V, H8508-2V, H8508-3V all come with flow control features that allow the operator to adjust the speed to suit the needs of each specific task. They can be run wide open to drill holes quickly, and then the flow can be reduced to prevent over tightening of pole hardware.
The Fairmont H8508-1, H8508-1V, H8508-3 and H8508-3V are equipped with a 7/16-inch hex quick change chuck for use with all major brands of impact bits as well as Fairmont "Nut Runner" sockets. These wrenches also include the 49314 heavy-duty adapter to adapt the 7/16-inch hex chuck to ½-inch square sockets. The H8508-2 and H8508-2V are equipped with a standard ½-inch square drive.
