The specialists for concrete screws20. December 2019
Technical jobs in the workshop or on the construction site require the right tools. An impact wrench is a must-have and belongs in every well-stocked tool kit. What should a good impact wrench be capable of doing? We took a look.
What do you need an impact wrench for?
Cordless impact wrenches are often used in metal construction as they are ideal for quickly inserting threaded screws and tightening them with a high torque. Depending on the product, torque ranges of up to hundreds of Newton metres can be attained. Impact wrenches are part of the basic kit for many tradespeople. Whether it be inserting and unscrewing tight screws or releasing stubborn nuts – an impact wrench is exactly the right tool for these types of tasks. There are countless products of various price ranges and quality standards available on the market. A general rule of thumb is that no single product is capable of doing everything. Impact wrenches in particular were developed for specific purposes. It is best to decide ahead of time what you need to use the product for before choosing one.
The Cordless Impact Wrench FSS 18V: The perfect tool for fischer’s ULTRACUT concrete screws
Are you already familiar with the ULTRACUT FBS II – the high-performance concrete screw for absolute installation ease? When using the cordless impact wrench FSS 18V 400 BL you can place the concrete screw with a diameter of 6-10 at the maximum torque of 450 Newton metres. The maximum torque for installing concrete screws with a diameter of 10-14 using the FSS 18V 600 is as high as 600 Newton metres. Another advantage: The FUP checking gauge, which is supplied in the kit free of charge, allows you to check whether the FBS II 8-14 gvz can be reused when using temporary fixings.
The right accessories
Even the simplest of tools require the right accessories. Impact wrenches require the right attachments in various different sizes. The fischer impact wrench comes with multiple accessories:
Both fischer impact wrench sets contain a multitude of sockets and checking gauges in various sizes. All of these accessories are included free of charge in every kit. The fischer impact wrench also features a belt hook for convenient transportation. Depending on the product set there are also impact wrenches with suitable battery pack systems and chargers as well as an additional information leaflet on the fischer ULTRACUT concrete screws FBS II to help perfectly set up the impact wrench to install concrete screws.
Advantages of a cordless impact wrench
As mentioned above, the advantages of a cordless impact wrench compared to conventional cordless drills is that it offers a much higher torque. This is particularly essential when drilling into harder materials.
The problem is that the screw head can tear off when too much torque is applied. Setting the torque of the cordless impact wrench is therefore particularly important in order to achieve the best possible result in various types of construction material. The FSS18V 400 BL is especially easy to use as the torque can be adjusted as required.
Did you know? fischer is a CAS system partner. CAS stands for Cordless Alliance System. This means that our battery packs and our battery chargers are compatible with those of 13 other CAS partners. All batteries of various capacities can therefore be used in all CAS machines and chargers. This currently includes over 140 electrical devices and counting.
