Best Impact Wrenches (Cordless and Air) (Expert Reviews 2022)


Impact wrenches are a must-have for most home and auto mechanics. An impact wrench, also known as a pneumatic wrench, combines a socket wrench with an air motor. This type of wrench is more efficient than conventional wrench types because it uses more torque than a standard wrench. Also, an impact wrench can exert up to 160 Nm of torque, the recommended torque for most nuts and bolts.
