RIDGID 18V Sub-compact Impact Wrenches

Coming Soon – RIDGID 18V Sub-compact Brushless Impact Wrenches, 3/8 in. and 1/2 in.

We recently got word of a new tool release, the RIDGID 18V sub-compact impact wrenches, in 1/2 in. (Model R872071) and 3/8 in. (Model R872081). Both feature the flexibility of 4 modes and house brushless motors. The modes are selected via a base-integrated button allowing you to match the required torque to the task at hand. They add new versatility to RIDGID’s already impressive lineup of 18V tools. And they combine high-torque break power with cord-free use in a sub-compact design that fits in a tight garage or job site space other impact wrenched may not quite fit.

These impact wrenches aren’t just designed for home use — they advertise a protective rubber guard coming to market which still allows the tri-beam LED light to illuminate those dark recesses under the hood or in unfinished/unlit work spaces. The rubber over boot prevents tool damage while also protecting finished work surfaces.

And as always, these new tools, once available, will be covered with RIDGID’s solid warranty. And it’s worth noting that the warranty, if completed within 90 days, doesn’t just cover the tool. Batteries included with any kits are also covered under RIDGID’s excellent warranty.

90 Days to register. 5 Minutes to complete. LIFETIME COVERAGE
