Pistol Air Impact Wrenches - Proto Industrial Tools

Feb. 3, 2014

PROTO® is pleased to announce the launch of a new line of premium air tools, developed specifically for the industrial market. The new PROTO Titanium Series will offer four premium Pistol Air Impact Wrenches that deliver the latest in innovation and offer the highest breakaway torque in the industry. These pistol impact wrenches will be available in 3/8” drive (J138WP), 1/2" drive compact (J150WP-C), 1/2" drive industrial impact (J150WP) and the 3/4" drive heavy-duty impact (J175WP). The new industrial air tools represent PROTO’s commitment to providing solutions in the industrial market. 

An innovative motor design reduces the number of parts needed and ultimately lowers the weight of the tool. They are constructed with a titanium front housing for reduced weight and maximum durability. This lower weight and higher breakaway torque results in the highest “power-to-weight-ratio” in the marketplace.  The impact wrenches also feature an air inlet 360-degree rotation for easy compressor hook-up, titanium exhaust deflector for increased durability, and muffler for reduced noise. “The new PROTO Titanium Series Impact Wrenches are the most durable and powerful family of impact tools I’ve ever seen, and are designed and built specifically for the industrial market,” said Jeff Connell, PROTO Industrial Tools product manager. “Professionals require impacts that are not only powerful, but live up to the rigors of the industrial market. The PROTO Titanium Series will change the way technicians view impacts.” 

These new, exclusive PROTO impact wrenches were thoroughly tested and approved by industrial technicians in fleet repair, industrial assembly, teardown and repair facilities, mining and petrochemical sites, as well as heavy equipment repair centers. Beyond power and torque, technicians and mechanics said ergonomics are essential when operating tools on a daily basis. The Titanium Series addresses this need. The impacts include a handle forward design for superior comfort and balance that reduces operator fatigue. A soft rubber grip delivers comfort during prolonged use. In addition, a one-hand power adjustment and forward/reverse systems enables the mechanic a free hand to hold fasteners and complete their job easily and more efficiently. A feather throttle offers maximum operator control over the power output.
