The Pro Preferred Brand of Pneumatic Nailers, Metabo HPT, today announced a new addition to the MultiVolt System that finally gives users the added versatility they want in cordless tools. The 36V MultiVolt Cordless 1⁄2” Mid-Torque Impact Wrench (model WR36DE) is water and dust resistant with an IP56 rating to handle harsh conditions. It’s lightweight with plenty of power to tighten up to 240 bolts per charge.
With Brushless motor technology, this impact wrench has plenty of power for all mid-torque applications. It delivers 568 ft-lbs of tightening torque and 774 ft-lbs of nut busting torque with up to 2,400 RPM and 3,400 BPM. At only 4.2lbs, it’s easy to use in overhead applications or for all-day use. The 1⁄2” square drive with friction ring provides a strong grip on sockets and accessories. The large rubber bumper protects the tool from damage and reduces heat transfer to the user from prolonged use. With a 4-stage speed selection panel and a responsive variable speed trigger there’s precision and control at your fingertips. An Auto Stop System prevents bolts from breaking in the case of overtightening. For added convenience, it includes a belt hook that you can move to either side of the tool. Additionally, an on-tool LED light illuminates dimly lit work areas.
Unique advantages of the 36V Multivolt Tools
Perhaps the most unique advantage of ALL 36V MultiVolt cordless tools from Metabo HPT is the ability to be converted to corded use with the revolutionary AC adapter (model ET36A – sold separately). Users can conveniently get the functionality of two tools (cordless and corded) in one. Use the mid-torque impact wrench cordless; however, if the battery needs to be recharged and you have no spares ready, plug in with the AC adapter and keep going. The impact wrench is backed by Metabo HPT’s ongoing Lifetime Lithium-Ion tool body warranty* and 2-year Lithium-Ion battery warranty.
Once invested in Metabo HPT cordless system, the same MultiVolt batteries that power the 36V tools can also power ANY Metabo HPT 18V tool with double the runtime when installed. Now professionals can expand their cordless tool arsenal including unique specialty tool options like a Rebar Cutter/Bender, the Industry’s First Cordless Plunge Router, the Industry’s Only 36V Metal Connector Nailer and Duplex Nailer, a Deep Cut Band Saw, 10” Cordless Jobsite Table Saw and many more, sharing the MultiVolt battery across the 36V and 18V cordless tool platform for ultimate versatility.
The WR36DE comes with (2) 36V MultiVolt 2.5Ah batteries (371751M). It also comes with rapid charger with USB port (UC18YSL3), and carrying case for storage and transport. MSRP $399. Also available as a bare tool – model WR36DEQ4. MSRP $199. For more information including the full line of Metabo HPT products and support, please contact 1-800-829-4752 or visit metabo-hpt.com.
