Paris, France – January 1st, 2010 - Ingersoll Rand launches the 259, 3/4" ImpactoolTM
Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in automotive and industrial tools and equipment, has launched the 259, 3/4" Impactool™. The 259 model is a versatile tool, offering great performance and ergonomics together with reduced size and weight.
The new 259 delivers 1 424 Nm (1 050 ft-lb) of maximum torque in both forward and reverse. Two power regulator settings in both directions along with a variable-speed trigger provide superior control. Its "swinging hammer" impact mechanism performs very well with a wide variety of air pressures and supply conditions. The tool can also be used on a 10 mm (3/8") hose when other 3/4" impact wrenches require larger hoses.
To increase end-user comfort, the new Ingersoll Rand tool is very well balanced and weighs up to 1 kg (2 lb) less than competitive tools providing excellent power-to-weight ratio. The minimum size of this tool will allow greater access to tight spaces, while the minimal weight will reduce operator fatigue. A silenced exhaust further adds to user comfort in extended use conditions.
The 259 is an ideal solution for a wide range of vehicle service applications. It is perfect for tire changing on light trucks or medium size agricultural and construction equipment. Its reduced size and weight makes it particularly suitable for truck, bus, agricultural or construction equipment maintenance and repair.
