Cordless 1/4" Hex Impact Driver, Dual Voltage



Product details

Our cordless 1/4" hex impact driver (max torque: 1,416 in. lbs) is built for power, ergonomics and long runtimes. Operators experience a safe, productive work environment with virtually no torque reaction and more work between charges. Companies enjoy a greater ROI, as the brushless motor and hybrid switch nearly double tool life and greatly lower maintenance costs. Dual voltage technology uses our 14.4V or 18V lithium-ion batteries. Tool body only.

Superior ergonomics for improved worker safety

Our professional tools are ergonomically designed with worker safety top of mind. Lightweight and balanced with a cushioned grip and virtually no torque reaction reduces operator fatigue and injury while creating a healthier, more productive work environment. A modern cordless design allows total freedom of movement inside vehicles and tight work spaces for greater production efficiency.

Dual voltage backward compatible, uses 18V & 14.4V batteries

While creating this new series of cordless power tools Panasonic kept you top of mind as usual. Our dual voltage technology enables backward compatibility, allowing use of a 14.4V battery or earlier generational 18V batteries. Each battery has benefits. The 14.4V batteries is lighter and smaller for better ergonomics, while the an 18V battery offers longer runtime. The tool automatically detects battery voltage for best performance.

Robust anvil & housing durability

New anvil materials and an innovative design increases service life, durability, and overall performance of impact parts. Metal tabs added to tool housing where battery locks onto tool minimizes wear and damage caused by abrasion and vibration during heavy use. The result: longer life operation and a better ROI.

High efficiency brushless motors

Our high-powered brushless motors generate cooler operating temperatures which improve efficiency and performance while greatly increasing tool life. Rare earth magnets promote faster working speeds, high power density, 2X longer life and 25% greater energy efficiency than brushed motors. Compact motor size reduces physical length of tool for increased maneuverability. Increase ROI with a high-power low-maintenance motor ideal for heavy load applications.

Long-life hybrid switches

The switch on your power tools is usually the first thing to malfunction. Our hybrid switch solves this problem. Carrying less than 0.5 amps, compared to 20-30 amps for conventional tools, our hybrid switches nearly double the life of your new Panasonic tool. This low amperage working current prevents premature deterioration of contacts, drastically reducing downtime and costly repairs. The result is a 2X longer life than conventional switches.

Light up dark work areas

A built-in LED light allows operators to illuminate the work area for fast, accurate assembly. Ideal for gaining better visibility in tight, enclosed or deep dark spaces. The auto shut-off features turns light off after five minutes of idle operation to conserve battery power.

Ultra long life Li-ion battery pack

Our same Li-ion technology that powers the world’s most advanced electric cars also powers our cordless assembly tools. GuardION system protection ensures long life and safety as the tool, battery and charger work together as a single energy-efficient eco system. Sensors prevent overcharging/discharging to avoid cell damage and extend battery life. Automatic power shut-off at the battery prevents overheating, doubling battery life over conventional Li-ion battery packs.

Self-drilling screw mode

Self-drilling screw mode saves time and headaches in metal work application. It starts at the highest speed to drill through the metal then switches to high impact mode to powerfully cut initial thread. Load is then reduced and automatically switches to soft impact mode to limit potential of stripping threads.
