The advantage of being this lightweight and compact with only 4.6 inch length (with measurements of 2.4W x 7.1H x 4.6L inches) accompanied with great ergonomics is also the ability to work through, under, on, over and work around any hurdles of different tasks quickly and longer if you need to and experiencing much less fatigue as you can see on the photo on the right, it will fit nicely in your hand. You will have total control on what you’re doing with the three different forward power regulation settings and the single handed forward and reverse push button and you will not have to do any extra work with its simple to operate red power regulator dial. Red forward and reverse buttons are also at the rear of the tool underneath the large dial so you can operate it with one hand conveniently no matter what application you will use it on. It is an air-powered device with a reverse maximum torque specified as 450 ft-lb and forward maximum torque as 360 ft-lb, beats per minute- BPM is 1250, maximum free speed of 8000 rpm with an average free speed of 7000 rpm, sound level of 96 decibels. It is made in China like many other products and tools these days due to cheaper labor and operational costs but is still a very good quality impact wrench.
