Milwaukee Unveils the World’s First Cordless 1” D-Handle High Torque Impact Wrench

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool just elevated the productivity for users who fasten 2”+ bolts with the introduction of the world’s first cordless 1” D-handle high torque impact wrench. An incredible breakthrough for cordless power tool technology, the M18 FUEL™ 1” D-Handle High Torque Impact Wrench w/ ONE-KEY™ replaces the need for pneumatic, delivering up to 2,000 ft-lbs of nut-busting torque and 1,900 ft-lbs of fastening torque for the most demanding applications. Simply put, this is the world’s most powerful cordless impact wrench.

“Since its inception a little over 10 years ago, M18™ cordless technology has continued to push the boundaries of 18V capability, allowing us to develop tools with the performance to replace some of the most powerful corded and pneumatic tools. The introduction of the first cordless D-handle impact wrench is a monumental achievement for the M18™ System and a huge step forward in productivity for users,” said Eric Rusch, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “As the industry leader in cordless impact wrenches, we are able to harness our advanced M18 FUEL™ cordless technology to deliver a D-handle solution with the power to complete all the applications a pneumatic can while also providing greater productivity, portability, and lower cost of ownership.”

True to all M18 FUEL™ solutions, the new M18 FUEL™ 1” D-Handle High Torque Impact Wrench combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE™ brushless motor, REDLINK PLUS™ intelligence, and REDLITHIUM™ battery pack.

The POWERSTATE™ brushless motor packs more torque for demanding applications, while REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence ensures maximum performance and protects the tool against overloads, overheating, and over-discharge. The M18™ REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack ensures this tool provides more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack. When equipped with an M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH OUTPUT™ HD12.0 Battery Pack, this D-handle impact wrench has the run-time to install up to (200) 1-1/4” bolts.

Finally, a four-mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature provides users the versatility to switch between modes to match the power and speed for the application.

As an added benefit, ONE-KEY™** provides the ability to customize, track, and manage this impact wrench, as well as set a repeatable torque. Within the ONE-KEY™ app, users can modify one of four fully customizable modes in order to achieve the ideal combination of power, speed, and torque repeatability for their most common applications.

Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. These new M18 FUEL™ 1” D-Handle Impact Wrenches are fully compatible with the entire M18™ line, now offering more than 200 power tool products, and are a true testament to Milwaukee’s focus on investing in game-changing technology that truly delivers breakthrough solutions for users.


Shortly, Milwaukee® will also launch an M18 FUEL™ 1” D-Handle Extended Anvil High Torque Impact Wrench w/ ONE-KEY™ for applications that need more reach. This tool will feature a special Lug Nut Mode which can be enabled via the ONE-KEY™ app to prevent the over-torque of lug nuts by automatically shutting off the tool within the targeted torque range of 350 – 450 ft-lbs. More information to come.
