Default Ingersoll Rand W5132



So a couple of months ago Ingersoll Rand sent me what was then a top secret - their new W5132 compact impact wrench. Essentially, it's a surprisingly small (6.5" long ...

This thing would do it... that's for sure... It's real tempting to put some non-impact sockets on that 3/8" square. REAL tempting... Until, that is, you use this thing for a while and realize what it would do to your pansy-ass chrome snap-on jobs.

It was my understanding that an impact driver has a 1/4" hex drive for screwdriver bits, while a wrench has a square drive for sockets and extensions.

My M12 Fuel 3/8 beats the hell out of my chrome sockets, you can see the chrome chips flying in the air. I'm sure that would break them easily.

I guess I had never really thought about it... So you are probably right...

Edit: Researched. You are definitely right!

Thanks fellas!

I have the m18fuel 1/2 inch and have a 03 s v t cobra with dark star rims actually the car is my nephews but i have did some modifications anyway i use my chrome sockets with impact several times for clearance expecting damage but no chipping or damage.i wouldn't want to do that daily but i guess its the difference in sockets.

A not so obvious feature of this tool unless you read the manual is if you put the forward/reverse in neutral and hit the trigger it will cycle different light modes. I already seen 1 in for warranty because of the light not working... it was just cycled off unknowingly.

it is a very powerful little impact the light is awesome, from what I read the 3/8 has the same power as the 1/2 so the only difference is probably the anvil

I am also interested in your comment that the 1/2 inch is even more powerful. If referring to the W5152, the IR website states the same specs as for the W5132.

Yeah, I saw that... Only thing I used for research was the early press release that probably wasn't a final copy. It appears to me they have since upgraded the power of the 3/8 to match the 1/2.

I don't do reviews like this often as I don't want to come across as a shill... But I learned quite a bit doing this. I think I should be more comprehensive.

My thing is this: I'm not really a tool guy ironically. I mean, we use the shit out of tools obviously... But I don't cherish them at all. We use them, destroy what doesn't work over time, and keep what does. At least thus far, this thing is a keeper.
