Metabo: New Class of Brushless Impact Wrench

Small and compact, yet surprisingly powerful (June 05, 2014)

WEST CHESTER, Pa., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade hand-held power tools and accessories, is pleased to introduce its new SSW 18 LTX 400 BL Brushless Impact Wrench, a completely new class of tool. When comparing the size to power ratio, along with its long list of standard features, there are simply no other tools in its class.

The SSW 18 LTX 400 BL's size to power ratio is very impressive. Weighing in at a meager 4.2 lbs. (with a 5.2 Ah battery pack), it produces a jolting 295 ft. lbs. of torque. Its small size and high torque allow it to be used in place of corded or pneumatic impact wrenches in tight space applications where bulky tools and air hoses won't fit. Additionally the SSW 18 LTX 400 BL features variable speed electronics with 12 speed and torque settings for driving both large volumes of regular bolts as well as the power to handle heavy duty high torque applications.

Ergonomically, the SSW 18 LTX 400 BL is well-balanced, lightweight andwith its slim rubber coated gripsvery easy to handle and use. The die-cast aluminum gear housing makes the tool extremely durable for use in demanding work environments.

By combining the efficiency of a brushless motor with the Metabo's Ultra-M 5.2 Ah, the world's longest running 18V battery system, the run time for these new impact wrenches is also extremely impressive. The tool, battery and charger are all backed by a 3-year warranty.

"This tool is simply in a class of its own," said Terry Tuerk, Metabo's Sr. Product Manager. "In terms of size and power, nothing else compares. When combined with our 5.2 Ah, this tool will perform as good as or even better than tools twice its size."
